Ah, more baseball! More dog undermining owner authority!
Charlie Brown’s attempts to coach the hell out of his team are infrequent, and cute. While he puts emphasis on key words like “speed,” “running,” and “runningest,” all it does is encourage Snoopy to get silly. “Go go go!” Eventually, the Snoopometer needle has broken, and multiple beagles dance before us in insouciant delight around manager Brown, who is clearly writhing both inside and out. This is why Snoopy is the coolest. He’s carefree, in and of the moment, following his heart (and feet). He can imagine it, he can do it. Life’s too short for strategy, Charlie Brown.
(This scene was also animated, yet I enjoy it more here jumping from still motion renderings. Easier to appreciate Snoopy’s coolness throughout. He never opens his eyes once!)
