3:15 pm • Woodstock: Creating Snoopy’s Sidekick
This documentary focusing on Woodstock, Snoopy’s best friend. He might be a little yellow bird, but the character of Woodstock has a huge personality. Conceived as a loveable pest to Mr. Joe Cool himself, Woodstock is as much a comedic sidekick as he is a sarcastic thorn in the side of Snoopy. A perfect compliment to Snoopy, was Woodstock an agent of chaos in the calm and organized universe of everyone’s favorite beagle, or was he the device for Charles Schulz to further his social commentary on all things under the sun? This film is being shown in conjunction with the Peace, Love and Woodstock exhibition.
