Terrific TV Toys: A special 50th episode for a 50th anniversary ...

Did you know Olaf has a full-time job? And Marbles is the smartest one of the group? How about that Andy -- he plays some mean drums! Yes, each one of Snoopy's beagle siblings has his (or her -- there are two girls) own personality. Meet three of those siblings in the latest installment of the Terrific TV Toys series. These are lovable plush toys nabbed at the gift shop at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, where a Snoopy theme prevails.

This special 50th episode of T3 commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Peanuts characters' debut on television. It was December 9, 1965, when the world first saw Charlie Brown and the gang animated in primetime on the small screen, and so many other wonderful cartoon specials followed through the years. The one that relates in particular here, for this special 50th episode, is "Snoopy's Reunion," which gave us eight little beagle puppies altogether, including Snoopy, and gave us a wonderful glimpse inside our favorite dog's back story.

Terrific TV Toys: Nöelle and her merry band of Christmas Scoobies!

A few weeks ago, you saw BRBTV's Halloween-costumed Scooby-Doo plush toys on our Terrific TV Toys series. Now we turn our attention to that other great holiday, Christmas, with a special episode highlighting several more Scoobies. In fact, with this episode, we are now up-to-date with the Scooby collection -- you now will have seen each and every Scooby housed at the BRBTV headquarters!!! Have you been counting? There have been 95 of them profiled across six episodes of the series. (It seems like more, doesn't it?)

Nöelle, Dancing-Doo, Snowy-Doo, Holly-Jolly-Doo, and the most recent and oh-so-unique Eggnog-Doo bid you a fine Christmas season!

Check out the addendum to this episode -- call it episode 49.5 -- that reveals what Eggnog-Doo has to say!!! Join us as we open up the little guy on camera! It's better than Al Capone's vault -- we actually find something in there!!!!

Stay tuned, because we've got one more episode for Season 2 of Terrific TV Toys. It also happens to be the 50th episode of the series, so we'll be celebrating a very special 50th anniversary ...
