Sat., Feb. 28.1976 CRKELEY (Colo.) T H I H U N K 13 THE LOCKHORNS 'HAVE A PRINK MO UNWINP, BECAUSE I HAVg SOME NEW6 THAT MIGHT f?E-WINC ItXJ." Schulz likes 'Snoopy' By ALICE Z. CUNEO SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) -Cartoonist Charles Schulz says the biggest kick in his 25 years of Peanuts was the opening of "Snoopy!!!," the latest theatrical tribute to his multi-million dollar beagle.' "Snoopy!!!," the sequel to 1%7's "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown" (one of the biggest money-making plays in American theater'history) features Peanuts characters introduced over the past five years, including a five-foot, 85-pound mute bird "Woodstock," played by Cathy Cahn. Woodstock, who generally plays Snoopy's "straight man," is a big hit among youngsters -- contrary to what Schulz recalls as the first public reaction to the bird in the strip. He said he got letters from Peanuts fans complaining his "innocent little character" was spoiling the strip because it should just be about kids. "Nothing has over given me more of a thrill than finally being able to hear people laugh at lines I wrote years ago," Schulz said at a recent performance in San Francisco's Little Fox Theater. Schulz said making Snoopy think was a major turning point in the Peanuts comic strip's history. "I was intrigued by the way people talk to their dogs and I just imagined how the dog responds," he said. The artist once owned a beagle named Snoopy, but Schulz said me dog got into fights with another family became "so violent we had to trade him away." Â· - Â· . * Â· Â· . ociiuit now nns three rfogs, none of which is a beagle. The man who handles Schulz 1 business, Warren Lockhart, is author and co-producer of "Snoopy!!!" He said he decided to open the show on the West Coast because the "East Coast economy wasn't going well and why follow a tradition that you have to open in New Haven?" "We're not 'Chorus Line' but we're fun and we give 'em their money s worth," he said. Lockhardt, president . of Charles M. Schulz Associates, said he believes there's a need in show business for entertainment that leaves people feeling they had a good evening. "To me that's more fun than doing 'Towering Inferno'," he said. Lockhart said '1x3 wants to let the San Francisco public "decide whether we had a hit or not." The response from botli the public and the critics has been so positive he thinks the show will run for three years in this city and will play in cities around the country for one to two years. "After all, it's a series of vignettes and I can cut lines periodically and make it more contemporary." "Snoopy! ! !" opens I h i s spring in Los Angeles, Washington, Philadelphia, and possibly Detroit, and in Boston this fall. "I'm not going to go trotting into New York -- we've had overtures - but we want to be certain New York wants us," said Lockhardt, who was nominated for an Emmy for co- producing the NBC-Hallmark Hall of Fame's "The Borrowers." The songs in "Snoopy! ! ! " touch on the trials of life -"Sit up! Lie down! Roll over! Play dead!"; the torments of students pleading "Please don't call on me today;" the warmth uf Iiuiuc in a tribute to [lie "Daisy Hill" puppy f a r m ; and - . . Songs -- "Poor Sweet Baby" and "Just One Person." In all, the music is reminiscent of (lie score of "Charlie Brown." The performance ends with a silhouette of Snoopy on his cartoon-like dog house with Charlie Brown .
