Storyline

Years ago, at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm, a unique litter is born. With members including Snoopy, Spike and Belle, they grow up healthy and a good music band. However, they become separated as they become sold including Snoopy. Years later, Charlie Brown can't help but notice how depressed his dog is. He suggests that Snoopy's family should have a family reunion. The whole gang enthusiastically responds, and even when they return their birthplace for the shindig only to learn that things have changed, nothing changes the joy of reunion, or the chance for making some good music.

Trivia

Throughout most of the comic strip, Snoopy is said to have been part of a litter of eight puppies. Three of Snoopy's siblings, Andy, Rover and Molly, were created for the special. The others, Spike, Belle, Marbles, and Olaf had all previously appeared in the comic strip. Andy later appeared alongside Olaf in the comic, making him the only one of the siblings not created by Charles Schulz to become "officially" part of the Peanuts canon. Molly and Rover, having never officially accepted by Schulz or drawn by him in the comics, are not considered canon by most sources and do not appear in any other media, although it's possible they might have appeared in the strip had Schulz ever had any ideas for them.

Quotes

[Charlie Brown has discovered an old "Puppy for Sale" sign and shows it to Snoopy and his siblings]
Charlie Brown: I can't believe it. That's all that's left. This is where your old home was. There's no more Daisy Hill Puppy Farm. It's gone. They built a five-story parking lot on it. You realized what's happened? They're prking on your memories.
Sally Brown: [solemnly] You know, big brother, what's-his-name is right: you can't go home again.

Back to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm
16 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

The biggest problem with 'Snoopy's Reunion' should be evident in even the title – considering that it strays from the long-standing tradition that all 'Peanuts' TV special titles should be statements or questions directed at Charlie Brown (It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, It was a Short Summer, Charlie Brown, etc), it isn't really that big a surprise that the story takes so many liberties with established 'Peanuts' history and principles. In many ways, this special could be received as an absolute nightmare for any nitpicking fan. An earlier source, the feature film 'Snoopy Come Home', revealed that the boisterous beagle had indeed once belonged to a little girl named Lila before being passed on into Charlie Brown's hands – so, that's something that the two instalments can at least agree on. See, the events depicted in 'Snoopy's Reunion' conflict with it over just about every other detail concerning how the boy and his dog first came to be together, the most noticeable being the well-observed fact that Sally wasn't even born when her brother acquired his new pet, something which this story strangely ignores (heck, it even shows her as being at her current age when it happened). It also breaks the Golden Rule that you never actually show the adults in the 'Peanuts' world (at least not their faces), or convey their speech as anything other than trombone-sounding gibberish. Well, I guess it made it easier for them to tell this particular tale, but since the kids and the dogs are still the main focus, I feel that with a little more thought they could've found a way round it.

But, no matter how nagging those faults can be, I find that I just can't stay mad at this special for long. In context with the rest of Charlie Brown's resume, it may seem lazy and inconsistent, but as a stand-alone story it still comes through as quite a pleasant little heart-warmer, partly poignant, partly bittersweet and partly upbeat and uplifting. Snoopy and his seven siblings (this looks like as good a time as any to show off my extensive 'Peanuts' knowledge – Andy, Belle, Marbles, Molly, Olaf, Rover and Spike are the names of all those guys!) are certainly very cute and make a fine little team from the beginning, so it's actually kinda sad to see them all get separated as puppies going off with different owners, furthermore when they're finally all reunited and discover that the world, physically at least, has moved on quite a bit since they were last together. But it's the way that the beagle kin react to this realisation that makes the whole thing so worthwhile – that spirit of theirs is something to be marvelled at.

There isn't really a great deal in the way of plot, dialogue or humour, but the appeal of those extroverted dogs is just about enough to carry it for the 24 minute running time (and it ends not a moment too soon). To sum up, I'd say it's worth a watch for any 'Peanuts' fan, provided that they're willing to overlook just how many odds it's at with the rest of the cannon.

Grade: B
