I am a Snoopy fan. Always have been. From the first time I saw him (on my Grandpa’s desk) to all the free Amazon movies I’ve watched of him (not that many actually, but I’m not going to spend my money on a movie!! 😉 I’m saving for college!!) Honestly, what’s not to like about a little beagle with Woodstock as his friend doing just about anything?? It’s awesome!!
When I saw that Snoopy had things to say about writing…well, I couldn’t resist. I just had to have a post of Snoopy. Sorry to all of you who like Peppermint Paddy or Charlie Brown better than Snoopy…but oh well. You just need to get your priorities straight!!
Lucy and Peppermint Patty simply crack me up. I can’t help it. Maybe it’s the fact that I tend to get pushy sometimes like Peppermint? Or that my mouth can go like Lucy?
Snoopy’s comical letters to so many people also crack me up. I have two of my dad’s old comic books of Peanuts (ok, so they’re kind of falling apart and I might only have three-quarters of the page…) and Snoopy is always writing to someone. Either that, or trying to prove to Peppermint Patty’s Principal that the dog school she went to really did count as her schooling and she shouldn’t have to do any more…
Yup. That went about as good as you expected and Peppermint came over to pound Snoopy. 🙂
What is it about the Peanuts cartoons that I like?? Well, I don’t know. What is it that I like? I like Snoopy, because he’s so funny. I like Woodstock because he’s so loyal. (There’s a cartoon of cold fall coming and Snoopy is getting ready to tell him to go south when Woodstock comes up wearing a coat and huddling next to Snoopy.) I like Lucy, because she’s simply hilarious though sometimes I can see my quick responses come close to hers. I like Peppermint Patty who knows what she wants and how to get it. And is quite pushy to get it. Ok, ok, sometimes I’m like that too. Linus is…I love Linus. Especially in one of the Christmas ones (I don’t remember which), when talking about the angels and ‘do not be afraid’, drops his safety blanket.
And then there’s Charlie Brown. Poor Charlie Brown. He can’t seem to do anything right, can he? I can identify with him again and again. But we all seem to like him…why? Because our inside self sympathizes, I guess. Yet he and Snoopy…what a pair.
What a pair.
