Woodstock’s fancy new nest disappears and Snoopy, donning a Sherlock Holmes outfit, sets out to find it. The suspects are Charlie Brown, then Lucy and Linus, and finally Peppermint Patty, but there’s not enough evidence to point the finger at any of them. Back at Woodstock’s tree, Snoopy spots footprints leading from the tree to the elementary school. Through an open window, Snoopy and Woodstock climb into the school and find Woodstock’s nest under a glass display case. Woodstock is overjoyed and grateful to find his home but the mystery is not solved. Who took Woodstock’s nest?

I even thought they might pass through Belgium and we could show some landscapes affected by World War I, and how emotional it could be if one of the characters somehow could be made to recite the immortal poem, John McCrae’s In Flanders Fields.” (from Peanuts: A Golden Celebration, 1999).
