Quotes

Charlie Brown: [as Snoopy eats an enormous yet appetizing dinner] You know, I've been thinking about you, and I've decided what's wrong with you. You know what's wrong with you? You're overly civilized, Snoopy. That's what's wrong with you. You're overly civilized. Good grief, what a dog. I hope you can digest all that food.

Def a change of pace for the characters....
16 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

......Snoopy as a member of a husky team, stuck out in Alaska, etc, a much more brutal outlook for the strip than usual. I can remember Not liking this as much, mostly due to it being such a jarring switch from their 1950s suburbia setting. I don't think this one works as well as the other specials, as you don't really buy Snoopy as White Fang, ya know?

Strange this is, it's all just a bad dream brought on by snoopy eating too many pizzas, which kinda takes away from the whole premise. Why not have him be on a flight(somehow) in Alaska, he winds up lost and abandoned in the wilderness for real, etc? I think this might have worked, at least better.

At times this series went awry, this was one of those times.

** for trying something different.
