Snoopy Animator Dies

Bill Melendez, animator for Charles Schulz Peanut characters, died today at the age of 91. I always enjoyed the Charlie Brown holiday cartoons. That’s one part of childhood that I think is universal to all of us.

Snoopy

For some reason, this news makes me think of the lyrics to one of my favorite songs by Brian McKnight. It’s called, I Remember You. You ma not have heard of it unless you bought his second album by the same name.

I love poetry and this song lyrically is so beautiful. This is the chorus:

[b-sec]
You wore pigtails and hand-me downs
I banged the piano
Played the clown
And though time slips away
It can never replace
How you’ll always be here in this heart of me

[chorus]
Lucy and Linus and Charlie Brown
Oh how Snoopy he never left the ground
Oh that is true
You remember me like I remember you
