"It's the Oncoming Storm, Charlie Brown!"

Snoopy: aviator; star athlete; bon vivant--and, as jimhines reveals, far more:

Proposal: Snoopy is actually a Time Lord. Probably the Doctor.


1. Snoopy was first sighted on Earth in October of 1950, and was around for far longer than any known beagle. Also, his appearance changed over time. (But he’s always been a white male!)

2. His dog house is canonically bigger on the inside.

3. And it flies. (Though it doesn’t always take him where he intended to go.)

4. He is known to have traveled in space.

5. He has a companion, one he understands and communicates with despite their different languages. (TARDIS translation circuit?)

6. He owned a Van Gogh. (The link between Van Gogh and the Doctor has been well-established.)

7. He's been known to wear bow ties.

Conclusion: Time Lord!

gehayi offers further corroborative evidence:

He's also traveled in time and participated in at least one Earth war. And he has a working-class female companion who strongly resembles someone he knows in a different timeline (the waitress in WWI France and Marcie).

And there's even a quote (from February 15, 1958) that suggests Snoopy's regeneration went wrong.

"Yesterday I was a dog...today I am a dog...tomorrow I'll probably still be a dog. *sigh* There's so little hope for advancement!"

Er...probably still be a dog? What aren't you telling us, Snoopy?
