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

Ol' Blockhead must be giving Snoopy too much sugar as he's way more hyper than usual at the beginning of this 1968 TV special. The rest of the Peanut's gang are sick of Snoopy's antics and demand that Chuck sort it out. Feeling that his only option is to send Snoops back to Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for some discipline training he makes the necessary arrangements. But Snoops instead spends the time with Peppermint Patty being spoiled rotten.
Patty soon tires of Snoopy's laziness and turns into an authoritarian nightmare, driving the mutt to madness. Meanwhile the rest of the gang mourn Snoopy's absence, annoyance or not.
This special deviates from the usual tone as it shows the bad side of the Peanut's gang. Though I do find that stories that focus on Snoopy or Woodstock tend to be less satirical and involving.
