A Conversation for The Ghost of Jenny Spinner
AgProv2 Started conversation Sep 16, 2005
So that's where the bugger came from... always wanted to know!
"Charlie Brown" might be an impossibly syrupy kitsch feelgood cartoon, but I've always wondered about that dog (Snoopy)sitting up on top of the kennel with a typewriter, tapping out the Great American Canine Novel, and always beginning it with "It Was A Dark And Stormy Night...."
I wondered if those were the opening lines of a real novel, and now this snippet of possibly useless information comes to me to bore people with.
So thank you, h2g2, purveyors of useless trivia and minor unconsidered trifles since whenever.
(NB - for a REAL dog's dog in a cartoon, see Dogbert in "Dilbert", who is, I suspect, a merciless pi$$-take on Snoopy's anthropomorphism)
