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; 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 two?
  • Ear Worm: Both "No Dogs Allowed" and "The Best of Buddies" (Snoopy and Woodstock's traveling theme).
    • "'Cause we've got fundamental friend dependa-bil-i-ty! Fundamental friend dependa-bil-i-ty!"
  • Esoteric Happy Ending: At first, the Peanuts gang is overjoyed to see Snoopy returning and sing his praises. Then, Snoopy types letters to Linus demanding the return of his croquet set and chess set and to Schroeder for the return of his record collection. Lucy then tells Charlie Brown, "That does it, Charlie Brown! He's your dog, and you're welcome to him!" Yeah, it seems everyone's really happy to have Snoopy back after that.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Clara seems to be the precursor to Elmyra Duff.
  • Memetic Mutation: NO DOGS ALLOOOOWED!
  • The Scrappy: Clara for being very annoying and having a lot of similarities with Elmyra Duff.
  • Squee!: Snoopy and those bunny books.
  • 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.
