Everybody Loves Snoopy

Released in 1972 - Snoopy, Come Home is an animated musical comedy-drama film directed by Bill Melendez and written by Charles M. Schulz based on the Peanuts comic strip. The film marked the on-screen debut of Woodstock, who had first appeared in the strip in 1967.

As the story goes - Charlie Brown's beloved dog Snoopy receives a letter from his original owner, Lila, who has been sick in the hospital.

With his bird friend Woodstock, Snoopy goes to visit Lila, making his way across the country despite seeing "no dogs allowed" signs everywhere.

When Lila gets better, she asks Snoopy to live with her. After a farewell party, he sets out to live with Lila, leaving Charlie Brown depressed.

More tear-jerking and less funny.

I saw this movie when I was four. I loved it as a kid, but now that I saw it with a new set of eyes, I found out that this is pure childhood melancholy! Apart from the film's opening theme song, which is downright catchy, there is this song that goes like this: "Me and you, a two-man crew. We are the best of buddies. We are the best of buddies." That song is happy. Another funny moment, was at the goodbye-party where Snoopy got bones for gifts given by the gang. Also, the part where Snoopy and Woodstock are on their way and they see a worm. Let's not forget the Snoopy vs. Linus and his boxing match with Lucy. That was funny. Humor aside, the 75% of the film is a tearjerker. Snoopy gets a letter from his original owner and has to go and meet her. Charlie Brown doesn't get it and the beagle's departure sends the whole gang to an uproar! Along, the way, Snoopy and Woodstock run into a common obstacle the "No Dogs Allowed" law. This sad story was a feature length adaptation from a comic strip that Charles Schultz made in 1968. If you think that is one surprising fact, another one is that the Sherman Brothers (the duo behind the MARRY POPPINS songs) wrote the songs. This is an attempt to make it commercial and to cater it to those who watch Disney and Saturday morning cartoons as seen with Snoopy saving Woodstock from the crazy animal-lover. (Call the ASPCA!) So if you think Disney is the only one that makes sad stuff, guess again. SNOOPY COME HOME is not the only one. CHARLOTTE'S WEB (1973) is a sad one (another one with songs by the Sherman Brothers). AN American TAIL (1986) is another. The ending to the Chuck Jones cartoon, WHAT'S OPERA DOC? (1957) is another. Recently, the FAIRLY ODDPARENTS episode, "The Grass is getting Greener" is an example. Another thing that made me rethink about this movie is that this was the last movie made by Cinema Center Films which was created by CBS. In fact, this was the last movie by Cinema Center Films and it was closed down because it was a flop! Why did it flop?

1. Most people wanted to see their animated movies in the same or similar fashion as Disney. Which leads to two.

2. It tries to be like Disney with the avid musical numbers. (Did you know that aired on the Disney Channel a few times?)

3. Too depressing.

This film and THE REVENGERS were biggest flips from Cinema Center Films' biggest flops. Gee, if they only made a monster movie. Speaking monsters if you look in the background of the scene where Peppermint Patty and Charlie Brown are at the amusement park, you see posters that read "Dinosaurs", "Dragons" and "Moon Monsters." This is because that monsters were popular to kids, (specifically boys). This was in a time where monster movies were easily accessed to kids before political correctness ruined it. Speaking of politically correct, nobody wants to make a sad film, which is why there are a lot of cartoons that are wacky, upbeat, noisy and crude. Not to mention unintentional shock as seen in those post-2010 shows on Cartoon Network. So if your kids are hyped up on those wacky cartoons, give them a nice tranquil movie like this one. It brings back this innocent charm, so it is rated G.

surprisingly good for peanuts movie

I've seen at least a dozen Peanuts movies/episodes/specials. A common theme I've noticed is that it is if whoever did the writing, storyboarding, and dialog only had 35 minutes to complete the job. The result being a pretty unwatchable, rarely funny, poor quality assortment of random scenes (sometimes with little to no plot at all). This was actually pretty good and manages to elicit emotions from you pretty well throughout. Pacing is a bit off at times but nothing too bad.

Overall, if you haven't found much appeal in Peanuts animation beyond the X-mas/Halloween specials, this definitely worth watching. I think it's, in fact, a great deal better those two specials.
