Trivia

While hailed as a classic today, "Snoopy Come Home" was a box-office failure in its original release. Produced on a budget of $1,000,000, it only grossed $245,073 at the box office. This was because Cinema Center Films was being shut down by CBS by this time, and the film thusly had anemic marketing. As a result, this film was the final release of Cinema Center FIlms.

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.

Funny in places, unbearably sad in others.
8 June 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

One of the most surprising things about this film is how melancholy it is, especially as it's intended for children. There are a lot of funny parts, but some of it is downright disturbing. For example, the scene where Linus and Snoopy fight over the blanket turns sadistic and nasty pretty fast - I thought Linus was supposed to be the kind, conservative intellectual of the gang? Also, when Snoopy runs away, Charlie Brown reacts like a middle-aged underachiever going through a mid-life crisis. And if you're a South Park fan, it's impossible to watch any Peanuts special without thinking of the twisted parallel universe of Cartman and company. The music in this film is really good, the animation is fine and it's all entertaining enough, but the downers are BIG. Be warned, this may screw a sensitive child up for life!
