In the original airings of the series in 2014, the animation team made a big mistake in introducing modern technology in the Peanuts world. They gave the Peanuts characters cell phones. This mistake was fixed in 2016 by replacing those phones with the old rotatory phones that have always used in the comic strips.
The short adapts a series of strips that originally ran from March 16, 1983 onwards. The same series of strips had previously been adapted as the segment "The Pelicans" in the episode "Snoopy's Brother Spike" from the 1985 series of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show.
