SNOOPY PRESENTS: WELCOME HOME, FRANKLIN is a wonderful 40-minute animated movie on Apple TV+ about a young boy named Franklin who moves to Charlie Brown’s hometown and searches for friends. SNOOPY PRESENTS: WELCOME HOME, FRANKLIN has a redemptive, moral worldview about sacrifice and loving each other.

Franklin’s dad is in the military, and the family often moves to different towns. Franklin doesn’t even unpack his bags when he does come into a new town, knowing he will move soon. Good thing his grandfather gave him a book he wrote in on advice and tips on how to make friends and how to adjust to a new city.

When Franklin starts walking around the new town, he accidently upsets Lucy and Pig Pen. He thinks he won’t make friends, until he goes to the beach and meets Charlie Brown. The two hit it off almost instantly.

The next day the Soap Box race is announced, and everyone starts to partner up. Franklin sees that Charlie Brown doesn’t have a partner, and they partner up to make a Soap Box. Only thing is, Sally, in her negative ways, warns Franklin that Charlie Brown isn’t good at anything.

While the two are making their Soap Box cart, Franklin tells Charlie Brown all about his family and his grandfather in the Negro baseball leagues. Charlie Brown tells Franklin about his family too. Together they become friends and learn about each other. However, when they try out their Soap Box cart, disaster strikes and them working together doesn’t seem to be working out so well.
