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.

As it was with BLACK SABBATH, Charlie Brown is going through CHANGES
27 June 2004 | by (New York,NY) – See all my reviews

This film rocks. Its funny, its sad, its more touching than any cartoon has a right to be. In it Low-man-on-the-totem pole Chalie Brown cuts himself on a metal dog food can and laments to his ungreatful beast that after "All I do for you I get no thanks". Later in the film Snoopy receives a letter from a mystery girl in a hospital and he rushes to her side. We find out this little girl Lila was Snoopys original owner who had to give him up when her family moved. They had brought Snoop to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm and the Brown family gotr him for Charlie Brown after he got a mean trick played on him by a kid in a sandbox at the neighborhood playground. Now the question is who will Snoopy end up with: Charlie or Lila? Even though snoopy has never been a character with much depth you can actually TELL he's torn to where his loyalties lie. (Your under the impression that he wants to go home to the PEANUTS but because of Lilas illness he cant bear to leave her either). I remember watching this as a child and thinking the "NO DOGS ALLOWED" parts were very funny. I didn't remember how sad this story is, especially Charle Browns song he sings late at night losing sleep wondering where Snoopy is and if he's really gone for good. The song is about how just as life seems good "IT CHANGES" and something messed up happens and sometimes you just wish that life had more "Hellos" than "Goodbyes"...the song is a true heart breaker and if I could write the lyrics (I don't know them all) I would. It almost reminded me of Ozzy singing "Im Going through CHANGES"...maybe thats just me. Anyway, SNOOPY COME HOME is a true classic that should be in every child's collection. My best friend is pushing 40 has no children and has confessed to me that this was the most touching childhood special he can recall. My mother who is in her 60s watched it once while babysitting my daughter and thanked me for packing that video in the sleepover bag...she held onto it and watched it again stating "That was the best Charlie Brown special i've ever seen!"
