Charlie Brown:[to Snoopy, who tries desperately to pull the sled] What in the world is the matter with you? Dogs in the Arctic don't behave like you do. In the Arctic, dogs are workers. They don't lead prima donna lives. They've got a chain from their collar that extends about eight feet. And unlike you, they're tied to a post or tree unless they're going to pull a sled. I guess I'll have to show you. Here, give me the harness.
[grabs the harness and puts it on]
Charlie Brown:This is what you're supposed to do. You get into the sled, and I'll show you.

Def a change of pace for the characters...., 16 December 2004
Author: gazzo-2 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

......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.
