It is done so well, and it's such a good movie!
It starts off with great scenes of Snoopy playing with the Peanuts gang (and Woodstock-- his first appearance anywhere). Snoopy surfing, helping Peppermint Patty build a grand sand castle, just enjoying life as only Snoopy does! But, then he finds himself excluded from the beach the next day as a "No Dogs Allowed" sign appears. And then it seems there are "No Dogs Allowed" signs just about everywhere. Charlie Brown gets angry at Snoopy and Snoopy is a bit unhappy. Just about this time, we meet Lila-- a sweet lonely little girl in a far away hospital. Remembering when Snoopy belonged to her, she writes Snoopy a letter.
When Snoopy receives the letter, he becomes all teary eyed and, with Woodstock, begins the journey to visit Lila.
Though Charlie Brown is sad to see Snoopy go, Snoopy must leave and he and Woodstock find the journey itself to be quite an adventure. And, once he finds Lila, Snoopy has a difficult decision to make. This one is a definite tear-jerker!
Vince Guaraldi's music is absent here-- all the songs are written by Richard Sherman and Robert Sherman. As I remember finding fault in this while watching it on videotape years ago, I was completely happy with the music now. Vince Guaraldi's jazzy piano might be more fun, but the Sherman tunes were truly delightful.
Snoopy Come Home is one of the best Peanuts movies-- completely charming from beginning to end!
I think the real treasure and power of "Snoopy Come Home" lies in the fact that it touches on a number of psychological issues that are relevant to children. Charles Schulz's usual introspection (he's the writer here, thank God) plumbs the depths of some deep issues -- independence, separation from a familiar environment, loss of a close friend, uncertainty over the welfare of a loved one, encountering the "threat" of a stranger (the aggressively happy girl who captures Snoopy and Woodstock), the renewal of long-forgotten relationships, and loyal dedication to those we too often take for granted. This animated film is truly underrated in its power to move.
Here's to a great "cartoon film" that does a fantastic job of retaining the spirit of the comic strip. It's a wonderful part of Charles Schulz's legacy.
