He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown

Synopsis: When the gang has lost their patience with Snoopy's pranks, they pressure Charlie Brown to act. He decides to send Snoopy back to his puppy farm for obedience training, but Snoopy is less than enthusiastic. He retaliates by going only as far as Peppermint Patty's place who agrees to let him stay for the night. He overstays his welcome as a freeloader which forces Charlie Brown to drag him back home with a firm hand and lease. Snoopy responds by running away for real back to Peppermint Patty's, but he learns that his return visit will be far less pleasant this time...

Ooh, that dog drives me crazy.

"And the little pig refused to open the door

and then the wolf became very angry.

And he huffed and he puffed

and he blew the house in."

That's ridiculous.

No animal could huff and puff that hard.






That dog is gonna drive us crazy.



Ooh, that dog.















After the show, we'll stop

and get a hot-fudge sundae, okay?

- Okay, fine.

- Bang! Bang!

Boy, Charlie Brown, it was a great show.

Free candy, 10 cartoons

and three monster pictures.

Well, Charlie Brown?

- Well, what?

That dog is impossible.

Charlie Brown,

you've got to do something about that dog.

- It's up to you, Charlie Brown.

- Why me?


Because he's your dog, Charlie Brown!


Dear Daisy Hill Puppy Farm...

...I am writing in regard

to one of your less distinguished alumni.

Perhaps a refresher course

in obedience and the social graces...

...would be appropriate.

Therefore, I am going to send him back...

...and have you teach him

a little discipline.

I'm sorry, Snoopy,

but it's for your own good.

The kids just can't stand

your undisciplined behavior.



Oh, hi, Chuck.

I'm calling to ask a favor.

Remember Snoopy, my shortstop?

Sure, Chuck. You mean

that funny-looking kid with the big nose?

Yeah, I guess he does have

kind of a big nose.

Well, anyway, he's going on a little trip

across town, see.

He's going back to school

for a little refresher course.

Back to school? Poor kid.

Oh, it's nothing serious.

He'll see his family and have a good time.

That's great. He deserves it.

You know, he's the only one on your team

who really knows what's going on.

So, what's the favor you wanted?

I wonder if he could stop at your house

and spend the night.

See, he's going to walk, and he'll only get

about as far as your house the first evening.

Sure, Chuck old boy.

Happy to be of service.

Tell your friend

Peppermint Patty will see he's comfortable.

So long, Chuck.

That shortstop was the funniest-looking kid

I ever saw.

Now, don't forget, Snoopy,

stop over at Peppermint Patty's.

She's expecting you.

Oh, don't forget your dish.

You're supposed to bring your own dish.

So long, old pal.


Hey, it's the shortstop.

Hi, pal. Glad you could make it.

Going back to school, eh?

Chuck says you'll have lots of fun.

Must be a drag, though,

having to go back to school.

Here's your room, Snoop.

Put your stuff down here,

then we'll take you for a little chow.

You must be hungry after your long trip.

Hi, Roy. We're gonna get us a bite to eat.

Remember Snoopy?

He's that strange kid I told you about.

He never says a word

but he's a good shortstop.

Here you are, pal.

This will take the chinks

out of the old tummy.


Boy, that's the strangest kid

I've ever seen.

It sure has been quiet around here

without old Snoopy.

I hope he's having a good time.

I hope they haven't been too tough on him.

Hi, Charlie Brown.

Any news from Snoopy?

You know, Snoopy drives me crazy,

but it sure has been quiet since he left.

I hope they don't mistreat him.


Roy, there's something about

that kid out there.

You almost get the idea that

he thinks he's a soldier on leave in Paris.

Heh-heh-heh. Ha-ha-ha.


Here you are, Snoopy.

Glad you could stay an extra day.

Hope they don't miss you at school.



What is it with this kid?

I wonder how long he's gonna stay.



Boy, this kid is something else.

I wonder if anybody misses him.

He's been here a week...

...and I suddenly realize why

nobody misses him.


Hello? Snoopy? No, he isn't here.

He's at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm.

This is the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm?

He didn't show up?

But he left a week ago.

I don't understand.

He left, and was supposed to stop

at Peppermint Patty's, then--

Hello, Peppermint Patty? This is Chuck.

Chuck Brown.

Hi, Chuck. Boy, am I glad you called.

Remember that shortstop of yours

called Snoopy?

He's still here,

and he's eating us out of house and home.

He seems to think he's at a resort.

That kid is a strange one.

He never says a word,

just signals for service.


This is terrible. He was supposed to

have gone to get some training.

I'd better go over and pick him up.

I hate to take this leash.

But if he's going to act this way,

it's his own fault.


Hi, Chuck. Boy, am I glad to see you.

That Snoopy friend of yours is something.

Wait till you see him.

He's wearing the strangest outfit.


Do you think you have to do it this way?

I'm afraid I have to.

Thanks for all you did for Snoopy.

I know he appreciates it

even if he doesn't say so.

I wish you wouldn't do that.

It's very embarrassing.

Now look, Snoopy.

If you'd done what you were supposed to,

you wouldn't be treated like this.

Now on, you're gonna have to be on a leash

anytime you leave the yard.



What happened?

I think I was attacked by an escaping--

An escaping prisoner.




You again?
