October 4, 1953: Snooopy vs The Yard: Another Realistic Bird


Unlike previous bits of suburban malice directed at the poor beagle, this one has the mental capacity to actually be contemptuous.

Those are some very good bird drawings, and Snoopy himself looks great in the second frame. Isn't that branch awfully low to the ground though?


  1. Weirdness abounds here...

    1. The unusual side shot of Snoopy in panel 2.

    2. The bird in the foreground shots of panels 3 and 5.

    3. Snoopy with eyes "blunk out" in panel 6.

    4. The characterization of the bird in panels 7 and 8. Schulz is anticipating Woodstock here!

  2. Oops, I got the panel ref's a bit mixed up. Sorry about that.
