Dog Eat Doug (4/21/09)


Just think, if Charles Schulz had drawn Snoopy as a lightweight chihuahua then he would have opened up a vast new world of comedy for Peanuts. Instead of the classic “Charlie Brown gets his kite stuck in a tree” gag, readers might have been treated to the surreal “Charlie Brown takes his puny dog for a walk and is forced to guide him through gale force winds” gag. And just think of the implications for Snoopy’s ongoing skirmish with the Red Baron. I’m not saying Snoopy would have been better off as a chihuahua, but I do think the third panel of today’s Dog Eat Doug illustrates, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the comic potential of small flying dogs.
