Plot[edit] Snoopy
Snoopy
and the rest of the Peanuts
Peanuts
gang go to the beach for the day. Once there, Snoopy
Snoopy
promises to go back to the beach the next day to meet up with Peppermint Patty. After Charlie Brown
Charlie Brown
has gone home to play Monopoly with the others, he notices Snoopy
Snoopy
is late and remarks he is tired of Snoopy
Snoopy
being late. The next day, Snoopy
Snoopy
is thrown off the beach due to a new "No Dogs Allowed on this beach" rule (thus setting a running gag in the film). Then Snoopy
Snoopy
gets thrown out of a library due to his disruptive behavior and another "No Dogs Allowed in library" rule. He then gets into a fight with Linus over his blanket, and later beats Lucy in a boxing match. Later, Snoopy
Snoopy
receives a letter from a girl named Lila, who has been in the hospital for three weeks for unspecified reasons and needs Snoopy
Snoopy
to keep her company. Upon receiving the letter, Snoopy immediately sets off with Woodstock to go see her, leaving Charlie Brown completely in the dark as to who Lila is. Linus decides to do some investigating, and discovers that Lila is Snoopy's original owner; Charlie Brown
Charlie Brown
faints upon hearing this. En route to see Lila, Snoopy
Snoopy
and Woodstock are forced to face the challenges of a world full of signs declaring "No Dogs Allowed." Each instance - on a bus, a train, and elsewhere - is musically accented by the deep tones of Thurl Ravenscroft. The pair are briefly adopted as pets by an animal-obsessed girl (identified as Clara in the theatrical poster, the soundtrack album's back cover and label, and closed captioning), but manage to escape. Snoopy
Snoopy
and Woodstock camp out, and play football and music while preparing dinner. Snoopy
Snoopy
finally reaches the hospital, but again no dogs are allowed inside. To add further insult, the hospital does not allow birds to enter either. Snoopy
Snoopy
is foiled in his first attempt to sneak into Lila's room, but his second attempt is successful. He then keeps Lila company for the rest of his stay. Lila tells Snoopy
Snoopy
that his visit helped her to get better. She then asks Snoopy
Snoopy
to go home with her, but he has doubts about this idea. Snoopy
Snoopy
decides to go back home to Charlie Brown. However, when he sees Lila watching him tearfully from her hospital window, Snoopy
Snoopy
finds that it's too hard to leave with her feelings hurt so badly. He runs back to her, which she takes as a sign that he wants to live with her. But first, he needs to return to "settle his affairs" and say goodbye. Snoopy
Snoopy
writes a letter directing that certain items of his will be given away: Linus is given his croquet and chess sets, while Schroeder receives Snoopy's record collection. The kids throw Snoopy
Snoopy
a large, tearful going-away party, each one bringing a gift. The kids closest to Snoopy
Snoopy
get up to say a few words in his honor. But when it is Charlie Brown's turn to speak, he is overwhelmed to the point of silence. After giving Snoopy
Snoopy
his present, he finally cries out in pain with Snoopy
Snoopy
doing likewise. The rest of the gang, even Lucy, eventually follows suit when Schroeder plays "It's a Long Way to Tipperary" on his piano after Snoopy
Snoopy
opens his mountain of presents (every single gift is a dog bone). After Snoopy
Snoopy
leaves, Charlie Brown
Charlie Brown
is unable to sleep or eat. When Snoopy
Snoopy
arrives at Lila's apartment building the next day, he sees a sign next to the front door that says "No dogs allowed in this building". Snoopy
Snoopy
is overjoyed that this gives him an excuse to return to Charlie Brown. Lila arrives and Snoopy
Snoopy
is reluctantly introduced to her pet cat. Snoopy
Snoopy
shows Lila the sign, and Lila has no choice but to allow Snoopy
Snoopy
to leave. Snoopy
Snoopy
leaves Lila behind and joyfully returns to Charlie Brown
Charlie Brown
and the others. Back home, the children are overjoyed to see Snoopy
Snoopy
return, carrying him on high to his dog house. Once there, Snoopy
Snoopy
demands that the kids return the items he had given them before he left, turning their feelings to annoyance. The gang then leaves Charlie Brown
Charlie Brown
and Snoopy together, then Charlie Brown
Charlie Brown
walks crossly away. The film ends with end credits being typed out by Woodstock as Snoopy
Snoopy
dictates. Cast[edit]

Snoopy, Come Home
marked the first time Snoopy's thoughts are fully communicated to the audience outside of the comic strip. This was achieved by having his typed correspondences appear at the top of the frame, giving the viewer full access to his thoughts. Previously, Schulz had opted to mute Snoopy
Snoopy
entirely, except for inflected squealing and growling. Snoopy's thought balloons, though overt in the strip, are not translated in the animated projects. Music[edit] Snoopy, Come Home
Snoopy, Come Home
was the only Peanuts
Peanuts
animated project produced during Vince Guaraldi's lifetime (1928–1976) that did not contain a musical score by the noted jazz composer. Guaraldi had composed all the previous Peanuts
Peanuts
animated television specials as well as the debut film A Boy Named Charlie Brown. Music for this film was instead provided by the Sherman Brothers, who had composed some of the music used in various Disney films and theme park attractions. Schulz said this was an experiment, as he had wanted to have more of a commercial "Disney" feel to Snoopy, Come Home. Schulz later said he would have utilized Guaraldi's services for the third Peanuts
Peanuts
feature, Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown, had the composer not died suddenly in February 1976.[2] A soundtrack was released by Columbia Masterworks, but is now out of print.
