Doctor Snoopy

Snoopy

I decided to go with a lighter blog post for today. Feel free to debate and discuss.

#

Proposal: Snoopy is actually a Time Lord. Probably the Doctor.

Evidence:

  1. Snoopy was first sighted on Earth in October of 1950, and was around for far longer than any known beagle. Also, his appearance changed over time. (But he’s always been a white male!)

  2. His dog house is canonically bigger on the inside.

  3. And it flies. (Though it doesn’t always take him where he intended to go.)
    Snoopy - Lost
  4. He is known to have traveled in space.
    Snoopy - Moon
  5. He has a companion, one he understands and communicates with despite their different languages. (TARDIS translation circuit?)
    Snoopy + Woodstock
  6. He owned a Van Gogh. (The link between Van Gogh and the Doctor has been well-established.)
    Snoopy Van Gogh
  7. He’s been known to wear bow ties.
    Snoopy - Bow Tie

Conclusion: Time Lord!

Heh. I like this idea.

I wonder, though: might that mean that the Stupid Cat Next Door is the Master? (Further corollary: Isis, the cat from the original Star Trek episode "Assignment: Earth" may have been a Time Lady with regeneration issues....)

I love this.

He's also traveled in time and participated in at least one Earth war. And he has a working-class female companion who strongly resembles someone he knows in a different timeline (the waitress in WWI France and Marcie).

And there's even a quote (from February 15, 1958) that suggests Snoopy's regeneration went wrong.

"Yesterday I was a dog...today I am a dog...tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. *sigh* There's so little hope for advancement!"

Er...probably still be a dog? What aren't you telling us, Snoopy?

(Hope you don't mind my taking the liberty of Metaquoting you; same goes for the OP.)

Snoopy from "What a Nightmare, Charlie Brown!" might work too...

I would argue against Snoopy being the Doctor, but otherwise the theory is entertainingly sound.

As the girl who chatted with you about Snoopy (and his sudden extra brothers!) at Continuum in Melbourne - thank you, for this post. I love it!

I don't know. Was the Doctor ever connected to Andrew Wyeth?

Not so far as I know, but my understanding of Whovian continuity is limited.

This clarifies many things.
Why didn't we think of it?
