When the gang has lost their patience with Snoopy's pranks, they pressure Charlie Brown to act. He decides to send Snoopy back to his puppy farm for obedience training, but Snoopy is less than enthusiastic. He retaliates by going only as far as Peppermint Patty's place who agrees to let him stay for the night. He overstays his welcome as a freeloader which forces Charlie Brown to drag him back home with a firm hand and lease. Snoopy responds by running away for real back to Peppermint Patty's, but he learns that his return visit will be far less pleasant this time... Written by

This was made,(in 1968) the year I was born. I was unable to see it on television, but I read the hard-cover book which, I loved. Everybody has a bad-side, but this is a lovable cartoon puppy-dog. In comparison, Snoopy's bad-side is nothing. I love the early animation of the Peanuts characters,it's the best childhood memory stuff. There is just a feeling I get every time I see and watch it. The music, the colors, the little voices... It's almost like flying or dreaming, something pleasurable, that brings relaxation. This one episode however, was a 'badboys' delight!! I am looking for this one on DVD, because I have never even seen it on VHS. For me Charles m. Shulz, God bless his heart, has in sort of a way given me back the enjoyment of childhood innocence that seems too often lost in life for many. This is a classic Peanuts. I plan to buy it and show it to my baby boy, he was 2 months old when he started watching Peanuts, just crying one day in his swing, he saw Snoopy and stopped crying. Now he loves Snoopy and the gang. Thank you Charles for creating some of the best child hood associations, ever!!! Peanuts and 'Charlie Brown Specials' should be shown in hospitals along side various cancer treatment programs and other illnesses etc, for kids and adults too. It sure couldn't hurt anything.
