Synopsis Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang celebrate “The World According to Snoopy.” After a series of brief vignettes, Snoopy laments the monotony and repetition of his daily life (“Snoopy’s Song”).Woodstock, Snoopy’s silent but expressive bird pal, falls in love with a worm (“Woodstock’s Theme”). But it doesn’t last long: Woodstock’s worm friend runs off with the early bird. The kids head off to school, led by safety patrol officer Charlie Brown. The entire class agonizes over “Edgar Allen Poe.” In his one-dog “Paw-pet Show,” Snoopy presents an all-puppet production of War and Peace. The three girls celebrate the breadth of their knowledge (“I Know Now”). With Snoopy at his side, Linus sits all night in the pumpkin patch, awaiting the arrival of the Great Pumpkin (“The Vigil”). Lucy imperiously declares that this year will be her year. The whole gang relaxes on the grass, discovering imaginative patterns in the “Clouds.” Snoopy enters as the Easter Beagle and gives bright Easter eggs to everyone except Charlie Brown. A dejected Charlie Brown, musing on the new independence of his pet, wonders “Where Did That Little Dog Go?” Snoopy nostalgically recalls his days at the puppy farm (“Daisy Hill”).

Act Two opens as Snoopy, “the world-famous writer,” feverishly pecks away at his typewriter. His short story submission is rejected by Playbeagle magazine, so he decides to write The Great American Novel (“The Great Writer”). Linus panics while his blanket is washed, and Snoopy presents a second feature at his “Paw-pet Show” Theatre. Peppermint Patty asks Charlie Brown to explain love to her, and he describes the kind of girl he’d like to marry: someone who’d call him “Poor Sweet Baby.” Patty sings a lovely, affectionate song to Charlie Brown, and then says, “Forget it. It’ll never happen.” Autumn leaves begin to fall. Inspired by the resilient cycle of nature, Sally leads the gang in a rousing song called “Don’t Be Anything Less Than Everything You Can Be.” Snoopy proudly accepts the honor of “Head Beagle” (“The Big Bow-Wow”). Everyone begins preparing for Christmas. Charlie Brown believes there’s one star out there that is his star, prompting Linus to ask, “Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everybody believed in everybody?” Snoopy admits, “You gotta start someplace.” He begins to sing, and one by one, the kids join in. Soon the entire gang is holding hands and singing together (“Just One Person”). Charlie Brown pets Snoopy and puts him to bed, saying, “He isn’t much of a dog. But after all, who is?” Snoopy sighs and settles into sleep as the lights fade.
