Make one move toward this blanket,

you stupid beagle...

...and I'll pull down your window shades.

You're not fooling anybody, beagle.

One more step, beagle...

...and I'll punch your lights out.




Hello? Who is this?

Oh, it's you, my sweet baboo.

I am not your sweet baboo.

Can I please speak to...?

Did you call to ask me

to go to a movie with you?

Ugh! No, I did not.

- I called to speak to...

- But you can. That's the way it's done.

When a boy wants to take a girI

to the movies...

...he calls her up and he asks her:

"Would you like to go to the movies

with me?"

And she says, "Yes, I would love to go

to the movies with you. "

And then they go to the movies together.

But I didn't call you.

I want to talk to your brother.

Well, I'll be glad to go to the movies

with you.

I'll be ready here at noon, thank you.

Here, my sweet baboo

wants to talk to you.

I am not your sweet baboo.

Boy, oh, boy, my first date.


I have something very important

to tell you, Charlie Brown.

Could I see you in a little while?

Sure, Linus, come right over.

What's the problem, Linus?

We're moving away, Charlie Brown.

You're what?

My dad has been transferred

and we're moving away.

You should have told me on the phone.

I can take bad news better on the phone.

Every time the phone rings,

I expect it to be bad news...

...and I'm ready for it.

Well, anyway, we're moving away.

We'll have to go to a new schooI

and everything.

We have a kid in our class

who's been to eight schools.

He never knows what's going on.

But who am I to talk?

I've only been to one schooI,

and I still don't know what's going on.


What's this?

So you won't forget me.

Forget you?

My dad has been transferred.

Our family has to move to another town.

Who is this?

That's me.

You can keep it on your piano

so you won't forget me.

What if I wanna forget you

and I turn the picture around?

What are you doing?

I'm going to the movies.

My sweet baboo is coming by at noon...

...and we're going to the movies.

Don't count on it.


Well, I don't have much time.

You're the last customer

I'll ever have at this stand.

I thought we might talk

about this move of your family's.

I don't know what I'll do without Linus.

He's my very best friend.

Not to mention the fact

that he's my second baseman.

I notice you don't mention missing me,

Charlie Brown.

I'm leaving too, you know.

Well, I didn't mean that, uh,

I wouldn't also...

I mean, of course, I will... Well...

As a matter of fact, I can't help you.

I've sold my practice...

...and you'll have to discuss this

with the new doctor.

So long, Charlie Brown.

The new doctor will soon be here.

Good morning, doctor.

Fifty cents? Are you crazy?

I'm not gonna pay 50 cents.

It's my whole week's allowance.

Besides, I'm still hoping

that they're not gonna move away.

I'll just wait here for my regular doctor.

It's you. I'm waiting for my sweet baboo.

He's coming to take me to a movie.

I'm afraid you're gonna have a long wait.

He'll be here. He called me.

Now, try to stay calm.

I have terrible news.

My dad's been transferred.

We're moving to a new city.

I don't believe it.

I refuse to believe it.

So there.

This may be my last game, Charlie Brown.

I'll probably never see you again.

Unless, of course,

we happen to go to the same college.

What college do you think

you'll be going to, Charlie Brown?

It's kind of hard to decide

in the last half of the ninth inning.

Here, Charlie Brown. It's an invitation.

We've received an invitation.

Linus and Lucy

are having a little farewell lunch.

I guess it will be quite a nice party.

It's being catered.

Lunch? What about my date?

What about the movie?

My sweet baboo is supposed to pick me up

at noon.

I told you,

we're invited to Linus' house for lunch.

Come on, let's go.

I'm not going.

I'm going to sit here

and wait for my date.

Well, have it your way.

Are you sure you got the right caterer?

Not to worry.

Joe CooI Catering

came highly recommended.

By who, I wonder?

- Hi, Lucy.

How you been?


All right, everybody, sit down, sit down.

Lunch will now be served.

Attention, everybody, attention.

Hear, hear.

As you know,

we are moving to a new city...

...and this is our way of thanking you all

and saying goodbye.

BO Y 1:


BO Y 2:

BO Y 1:
Goodbye. Goodbye.

Mr. Caterer, serve the dinner.


I propose a farewell toast

to Lucy and Linus.

Good luck and happiness

in your new home.


Hey, I'm not sure,

but are these dog biscuits?

What kind of a lunch is this?

It must be a fancy continentaI lunch, sir.

I see there's a gravy boat.

It seems to be water, sir.


They should have had bowls.

Ew! Dog food.

Dog food.

Well, I sure hate to say goodbye,

Charlie Brown.

It's sure been nice knowing you.

This is really happening.

I can't believe it.

Well, so long, you old blockhead.

It's been nice knowing you.

I don't know what to say.

I can't believe it.

I... I...

Snoopy always wanted this blanket.

I think maybe I'II leave it with him.

Linus is gone.

If you're still waiting

for your sweet baboo...'d better forget all about it.

I just saw him leave.

What do you mean, "leave"?

He's gone.

He and Lucy have moved away.
