Snoopy's two owners meet face to face

Peanuts Untold is a fanmade comic strip series made by DeviantArt user XUnlimited, based on Charles Schulz's iconic Peanuts with one major overhaul: what if Snoopy's former owner Lila moved to Charlie Brown's neighborhood and joined him and the rest of the gang.

The comic strip has three "arcs" so far, and can be found here


Peanuts Untold has trope examples of:

  • Adorkable: Charlie Brown, especially when around Lila.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Lila gives Charlie Brown a little kiss for Valentine's Day. Sally sees what happens and takes Lila to Lucy's psychiatric help booth to "fix" her. This exchange ensues:
    Lucy: Who in her right mind would want to kiss Charlie Brown?!
    Sally: That's why I brought her here.
    Lila: Have you two kissed a guy who doesn't run when you do it?
    (Lucy and Sally are shocked into Stunned Silence, then walk away with their heads low)
    Lucy & Sally: She defeated us with the facts.

  • Armor-Piercing Response: After Lila lets herself get drafted into Charlie Brown's baseball team, Snoopy puts them both through some (off-screen) Training from Hell that leaves them both lying on the ground tired. Lila then asks why Charlie Brown doesn't have a normal dog like everyone else. Naturally, Charlie Brown replies that she should be the one telling him that because she owned Snoopy first.
  • Ascended Extra: Lila, a minor character in the comic strips whose only relevance was being Snoopy's former owner, becomes a major protagonist here.
  • Aside Glance: When Snoopy (while dragging Lila) knocks Lucy off Schroeder's piano, she complains about how it was a matter of time before [that stupid dog] would "girlnap" someone.
    Schroeder: (Aside Glance) "Girlnap"?
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: When Lila greets Charlie Brown in the first arc, he asks how she knows him. Lila says "How could I forget that round face" making him frown, and then adds "And the cute face on it" making him blush.

  • Baseball Episode: The third arc is about Lila joining Charlie Brown's baseball team, even though she knows nothing about the sport.
  • Big "WHAT?!": Lucy delivers one upon being told that Lila kissed Charlie Brown.
  • Birds of a Feather: Turns out that Lila is as terrible at baseball as Charlie Brown is.
  • The Cameo: One panel in the first arc shows Franklin and Frieda, the latter carrying her cat Faron.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Snoopy remarking that he can't understand Lila after she gave Charlie Brown a goodnight kiss.
  • Crush Blush: Seen a lot between Charlie Brown and Lila.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Lila suggests that if they're to improve at baseball, they'll need to be trained by someone better than them. Cue Snoopy volunteering as a "world famous baseball coach", of whose Training from Hell not even his former owner gets spared.
    Charlie Brown: He doesn't tolerate failures from anyone.
  • Fainting: Of the emotional kind; Charlie Brown faints in joy when Lila gives him a kiss for Valentine's Day.
  • Forgotten First Meeting: Charlie Brown doesn't recognize Lila until she tells him who she is. Somewhat justified given that they met only once in the comic strip, and it happened off-screen.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Downplayed, but Snoopy tends to get pretty shocked or jealous whenever Lila gets affectionate with Charlie Brown.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Lila, full stop.
  • Holding Hands: Charlie Brown and Lila end up this way during the first arc, when he helps her get back up. It gets them both flustered.
  • Hypocrite: Both Lucy and Sally criticize Lila for kissing Charlie Brown, when both of them are Abhorrent Admirers to Schroeder and Linus. In Lila’s defense, at least Charlie Brown reciprocates her affections.
  • Insecure Love Interest: Even after Lila calls herself Charlie Brown's girlfriend, he's somewhat worried she only likes him as a friend. Lila then assures him she does like him in that way.
  • Moment Killer: Snoopy interrupts Lucy's moment with Schroeder at his piano when he knocks her away while "rescuing" Lila.
  • Oh, Crap!: Linus comes in running to tell Charlie Brown (who got knocked out to the ground) that Snoopy kidnapped a girl. Charlie Brown explains that she's Snoopy's former owner and that he wouldn't hurt her. Then Linus asks "And the Flying Ace?", prompting Charlie Brown to rush after them.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Lila to Charlie Brown.
  • Puppy Love: Charlie Brown and Lila end up becoming a couple.
  • Rescue Romance: Played with. Lila had the misfortune of arriving to the neighborhood when Snoopy was in one of his World War I Flying Ace vs The Red Baron fantasies. Snoopy spots her and mistaking her for a "Lady American Correspondent" and Charlie Brown for her captor, he "rescues" her. Charlie Brown then chases after them and (accidentally) crashes into Snoopy, being the one who "rescues" her for real.
  • Single Woman Seeks Good Man: It's pretty clear Lila likes Charlie Brown for being the Nice Guy he is.
  • Super Hearing: Partially justified because he's a dog, but Snoopy managed to pick up Charlie Brown when he got up briefly to ask himself about Lila being his girlfriend. Keep in mind Charlie Brown was at his home, sleeping in his bed, while Snoopy was at his dog house.
  • Smooch of Victory: Lila rewards Charlie Brown with a kiss on the cheek after he helps her get back up. Snoopy is not amused.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: After being the resident Butt-Monkey and never being given a single Valentine, Charlie Brown finally gets to feel appreciated when Lila gives him one personally.
    Charlie Brown: For the first time in my life, I feel loved!
  • Valentine's Day Episode: The second arc begins with Lila going to leave a Valentine's Day card for Charlie Brown at his mailbox. She finds him there and ends up giving it to him personally.
  • Verbal Backspace: Charlie Brown rants to Lila about how every year he waits at the mailbox for at least one Valentine, and never gets one while Snoopy and Woodstock get them by the hundreds. He then angrily says he hopes not to get one this year, until Lila tells him she had one for him.
  • What Does She See in Him?: Lucy and Sally have this reaction to Lila giving Charlie Brown a Valentine's Day kiss. Funnily enough, at the end of the first arc Sally had yelled at her brother "KISS HER, YOU BLOCKHEAD!" when she saw them Holding Hands.
