Did You Know?

Trivia

The first "Peanuts" production without a musical score by Vince Guaraldi, who composed for all previous specials and the first and previous movie, A Boy Named Charlie Brown (1969). This was deliberate, as it was an experiment by Charles M. Schulz, who specifically wanted a more commercial, Disney-like feel for this film. See more »

Goofs

When Clara is chasing Snoopy & Woodstock, she is holding the leash in her hand. When she is standing at the top of the stairs, the leash is gone. In the next shot, when she is sliding down the banister, the leash is back in her hand. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
[Charlie Brown picks up a rock from the beach, and throws it into the water]
Linus: Nice going, Charlie Brown. It took that rock 4,000 years to get to shore, and now you've thrown it back.
Charlie Brown: Everything I do makes me feel guilty.

Crazy Credits

At the end, just as an annoyed Charlie Brown exits stage left, Snoopy and Woodstock are still on top of Snoopy's doghouse, with Woodstock typing the closing credits (which appear over/around the two in typewriter text) on Snoopy's typewriter and Snoopy directing him like a music conductor. In a similar manner to A Boy Named Charlie Brown (1969), as Woodstock types the credits, the film's crew members, corresponding to the names in the credits, appear in groups in the background.

wacky and wonderfully subtle too
18 September 2000 | by (Boston, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this on TV at the tender age of 4, I cried my eyes out during Snoopy's going-away party near the end. When I recently saw it again, 20+ years later, I did exactly the same thing. The characters and situations are so genuine that I forgot it was a cartoon.

And I noticed how many brilliant little details are hidden in this gem: the copy of "Sambo" at the library, then Snoopy's reaction to the highbrow humor of "The Bunnies," and Woodstock's assistance in helping Snoopy cheat at chess against Lila. Note my two favorite scenes: when Sally absent-mindedly grabs Snoopy's nose through the library bookcase (and her little smile afterwards), and when Woodstock falls asleep watching the flock of birds pass gracefully overhead.

And the music is on par with anything you'd hear in an old Looney Tunes cartoon. Notice how the carnival music shares its melody with the sad song Charlie Brown sings after Snoopy leaves the second time? Or the zany symphonic freakout that accompanies the chase through Crazy Clara's house? And I love the lyrics to the "Me and you, a two-man crew" song that's used as the duo's song of the open road. And of course the hilarious basso profundo that underscores every appearance of the dreaded "No Dogs Allowed" sign!

Rent it, buy it, love it. This is the real thing!
