YMMV: Snoopy Come Home

  • Accidental Aesop: Remember everyone, don't talk to strangers...they might want to keep you as their pet.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Lila gets this in spades. Is she a Woobie and Nice Girl who makes the mistake of thinking Snoopy would be happier with her; is she a Canon Purity Sue, or is she a self-centered and selfish girl who cares nothing for Snoopy's current owner so long as she gets to have him? Or is she a mix of the three?
  • Ear Worm: Both "No Dogs Allowed" and "Me and You" (Snoopy and Woodstock's traveling theme).
    • "'Cause we've got fundamental friend dependa-bil-i-ty! Fundamental friend dependa-bil-i-ty!"
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Clara seems to be the precursor to Elmyra Duff.
  • Purity Sue/Canon Sue: Lila. Let's face it, she's just so sickeningly sweet on top of being selfish enough to ask Snoopy to come back with her (despite having a pet already)...and she gets off with it. Feeling no regret for nearly breaking poor ol' Charlie Brown.
    • To be fair, though, the cat could've been an unexpected coming-home gift from her parents. You never know. And the "No Dogs Allowed" sign? Okay, so maybe they had to give her some fallibility. I gotcha. Still, it's possible she could've overlooked it without warning. Besides, there are ruder characters: Lydia from Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales and Melody-Melody from You're in the Super Bowl, Charlie Brown come to mind.
  • Squee: Snoopy and those bunny books.
  • Tear Jerker: OH, GOD, this movie will leave you in tears eventually, no matter what.
  • The Woobie: Nearly the entire cast.
    • Lila. She made a mistake (and a rather simple one), as noted above, but even so, is anyone else bothered by Snoopy's dancing away with a smirk on his face while she stands there crying? Is this really Snoopy's idea of resolving his affairs with her? Come on, folks.
