YMMV: Snoopy Come Home
  • 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. 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.
