All you do is eat and sleep.

l want you to get some education.

Here's my library card.

Why don't you go down there

and take out a few books?

lt's time you learned how to do something

besides eating and sleeping.



You two better settle down.

The owner of a cat next door just called.

He complained about the racket

you two were making.

He says it's upsetting his cat...

...and for you two to stop this racket.

What's this about a magic show,

Charlie Brown?

Snoopy found a book about magic

at the library.

-And now he's going to give us a show?

-That's right.

He's built a stage and everything.



lt gives me great pleasure to introduce... his first show ever... of the world's great magicians.

None other than the Great Houndini.




Fake. Fake. That's no rabbit. Fake. Fake.

That's no rabbit.

We want our money back.

Robbery. Robbery. Ha-ha.

What a fake act.

And now, ladies and gentlemen...

...the Great Houndini will attempt

the famous ring trick.

Yeah, yeah. lt's a robbery.

Now let's see you take them apart.


Fake. Fake.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Fake, fake, fake.

The Great Houndini will now attempt

the great stick-in-the-hole trick.

We need a volunteer from the audience.

Me, me. l wanna volunteer.

Please step up to the stage.

The box, please.

Please note...

...when the Great Houndini

plunges the stick through the hole... penetrates completely

through the box.

Now l will ask the volunteer

to step into the box.

Quiet, everybody...

...while the Great Houndini

performs that fantastic trick.



Attention, attention.

We will need another fearless volunteer.

Boy, not me.

l think l fit the description.

l'll go up there

and help my good friend Snoopy.

Very good, my friend.

lf you will just step

into the magic closet...

...we will amaze the audience.

Watch carefully, please.


Hey, hey. Get me out of this.



Oh! Ooh! Ah!

Hey, get me out.

Hey, get me out.

Hey. Help. Help.

And now, for your amazement...

...the Great Houndini

will give a display of telepathy.

Our assistant will go into the audience...

...and select personal objects.

The Great Houndini will try to name

each and every object.


The Great Houndini says

that the object is a very pretty beanie.

And now, great magician,

what is the young lady holding?


The Great Houndini says...

...that the object being held

is a watch on a chain.

Oh! Wow.

How's he do that?

Now for the next trick...

...we need the cooperation

of the audience.

We need another volunteer

to lend us a piece of clothing.

-Here, we'll give this to the magician.


Give it back, give it back.

Don't worry, sweetie.

lt won't hurt your blanket.

The Great Houndini will cut up

this blanket into many pieces...

...and then, before your very eyes,

he will make it all come back together.





Quiet. Quiet, while

the Great Houndini readies himself.

l wonder what this trick is going to be.

We would like another volunteer

for the great levitation trick.



Before your very eyes...

...the Great Houndini

will raise a person into the air.

Boy, l'd like to try that.

Great. We have a volunteer.

Please come up, madam.

Just lie here on that table.

Does he know what he's doing?

He must have absolute quiet.

The Great Houndini

demands absolute quiet.
