For some years now the old PanAm building, at the foot of Park Avenue in Manhattan just behind Grand Central Terminal, has been rebranded as the MetLife Building. I have felt for a long time that it would be wonderful to place a large sleeping Snoopy on top of the building’s famous flat roof, as if it were his doghouse.
Snoopy has many eccentricities and every single one is interesting. It would be too tedious to relate them all here, but my absolute favorites are Joe Cool, his happy dance and when he tries to snatch the blanket from Linus, oh and yes when he rushes in and kisses Lucy. Snoopy Halloween I’ve been kissed by a dog.
There is another Snoopy … sort of. In the 1953 Droopy Dog short, ‘The Three Little Pups’, the three brothers being chased by The Big Bad Dog-Catcher are: Droopy, Loopy, and Snoopy. The other two are basically clones of Droopy and have no speaking roles nor real personalities.
