My least-favorite "Peanuts" movie...[edit]

"Snoopy, Come Home" was the very first movie I saw in a theater. I was only five years old at the time. I enjoyed the comedy, but I was too young to understand much of the plot. I've seen it a few times since then, and it's a great movie for people who like "tear-jerkers." I don't like those kind of movies, though, so it's probably my least favorite Charlie Brown film.

Two things stick out in my head from this movie since I last saw it many years ago, the song No Dogs Allowed and the one they sing when Snoopy is out in the streets. LReyome254 (talk) 03:01, 17 December 2010 (UTC)


I removed the following quote from the article:

"The songs it whould be Jerry Goldsmith score but was Rejected by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman."

That statement makes absolutely NO sense! (talk) 02:46, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

Broken links[edit]

After some of the headlines in the article List of minor characters in Peanuts have changed, some broken links in this article should be fixed (for example the names of Lila and "annoying girl"). Someone else must do it, because when I tried it three times, it was declared "vandalism" and my edit was reverted [1]. I was finally adviced in my talk page to "discuss [my] changes on the appropriate talk page for the article before continuing to make edits" [2]. -- (talk) 17:52, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Snoopy and Woodstock are best friends[edit]

Before, Snoopy met Woodstock for the best friends like Laurel and Hardy for the happiness for many years ago. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tlj1989 (talkcontribs) 05:55, 7 October 2019 (UTC)

Snoopy, Come HomeSnoopy Come Home – Since there is inconsistency — the film poster appended within the infobox depicts both a comma [following "Snoopy"] and an exclamation point [following "Home"], the 2001 VHS cover and the 2006 as well as the 2015 DVD covers depict the comma but not the exclamation point and the film's on-screen credits depict neither the comma nor the exclamation point, the ultimate arbiter should be the film's on-screen credits (both the Eric Knight novel Lassie Come-Home and the subsequent film version Lassie Come Home have no comma). —Roman Spinner (talkcontribs) 20:31, 28 December 2019 (UTC)

The copyright registration has both comma and exclamation point. Also, if you're looking for a title source, the Lassie material is at best an indirect one; there was a Peanuts strip collection issued in 1963, Snoopy, Come Home (so comma, no !). The book adaptation of the film released at the time of the film was The "Snoopy, Come Home" Movie Book (again, comma, no !). I have a Peanuts COI not particularly relevant to this discussion. --Nat Gertler (talk) 00:02, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
Lassie Come Home was submitted as the precursor of "Dog Come Home" titles. Having established that fact, each production is of course free to choose its own form, and if the on-screen title had indeed been Snoopy, Come Home, Snoopy Come Home! or Snoopy, Come Home!, I would have supported the use of such on-screen form as the main title header for the film's entry in Wikipedia. However, since the on-screen title is Snoopy Come Home, that form of the main header is the one I am supporting. Copyright entries, posters, publicity, VHS / DVD covers and other sources may differ in small details, thus leaving the on-screen credits as the uttermost authority.
In the introductions to the annual editions of his now-discontinued Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide, Maltin had written a variation on this sentence from the 1989 edition, "[T]rying to determine proper screenplay credit for Blithe Spirit, for example, we found three conflicting lists of coauthors in three equally authoritative books. Ultimately, and with the help of videotape, we turned to the film itself, and this remains our final arbiter for all screen credits". —Roman Spinner (talkcontribs) 07:07, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
The thing is, under Wikipedia article naming guidelines, we are not looking for the official name of the work, however one might define it, but for the WP:COMMONNAME. The official name (or various stylings thereof) makes fodder for the opening sentence, perhaps, but it is clear that beyond the on-screen usage, the film is generally refered to with comma in place. --Nat Gertler (talk) 13:02, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
By the way, this thread has now inspired a blog post which has some illustrations that may be of use to those researching the question. --Nat Gertler (talk) 16:30, 29 December 2019 (UTC)
As far as the WP:COMMONNAME in film resources is concerned, it cannot be denied that a majority uses the comma — Steven H. Scheuer's Movies on TV and Videocassette, Mick Martin's and Marsha Porter's DVD and Video Guide, The Motion Picture Guide, TV Guide (which uses, in its online edition, cut and / or rewritten versions of pre-2000 write-ups that originally appeared in The Motion Picture Guide) as well as Rotten Tomatoes, AllMovie and AFI Catalog of Feature Films which starts its write-up with the sentence, "[A]lthough the animated opening credits do not contain a comma in the title, the majority of contemporary and modern sources list the title as Snoopy, Come Home."
However, there is still inconsistency — IMDb lists it without the comma, TCM has it both ways by featuring two separate entries for this film — one titled Snoopy, Come Home (duration 70 minutes) and the other titled Snoopy Come Home (duration 80 minutes) while Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide pre-2004 editions list it as Snoopy, Come Home, but subsequent editions have it without the comma.
Ultimately, those who agree with Maltin that the film itself "remains our final arbiter for all screen credits", especially in cases which lack unanimity among sources, are most likely to accept the no-comma form. Since a specialized nomination of this nature is usually applicable only to the matter at hand, we will have to wait for the emergence (or not) of a consensus.— —Roman Spinner (talkcontribs) 01:18, 30 December 2019 (UTC)
  • Support per nom (we do tend to take on-screen title card as more authoritative in cases like this, but probably more to the point, it's going to usually result in WP:COMMONNAME, because it's always going to be the same, regardless what happens on various movie posters, VHS/DVD/BluRay box covers, etc. Support also per WP:CONCISE, and per the WP:MOS principle that an optional stylization of any kind should not be applied if it is not overwhelmingly dominant in the sources.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  09:57, 3 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Support With a comma, exclamation mark, or either - I just consider these stylized titles. With no specific stylized title being common, both can be disregarded. It might be worth detailing this in a footnote: I noticed TV Guide, a pretty reliable source, uses a comma but no exclamation mark. JAYFAX (talk) 20:45, 4 January 2020 (UTC)
Found a pretty similar case: anime movie Your Anime isn't titled with with a '.' character, despite it being a sorta-official-but-not-really stylization used in some places. JAYFAX (talk) 21:33, 5 January 2020 (UTC)

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Reflecting the title stylization[edit]

The opening sentence should start " Snoopy Come Home (often stylized with various punctuation marks) " to reflect the variety of naming we have found. We could even have a section listing the common title stylizations. I won't make the changes myself due to my conflicts of interest. --Nat Gertler (talk) 14:24, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
