Blog It, Video It, They Will Come - Snoopy House on TV


Monday, as I was stepping out to an appointment, I received a call from NBC News asking for DonovanBlatt.

I asked how I could help.  She told me that they were doing a story on the Snoopy House being moved to the Costa Mesa City Hall and wanted to know if they could use videotape that I had done on Snoopy House a few years ago.

This was poor quality video on a little camera that also did video, but they wanted to show it as it had been before the Bank Foreclosed on Snoopy.

I of course said, "Yes" and on tv that night there was my video with a credit back to me.  Too bad they didn't do the same on the video on their website, but still it proves that people will notice and pay attention. 

I need to do more video, and this just reinforces that fact.

This is currently a big story because Snoopy has fallen victim to the economy.  Last month, Wachovia/Wells Fargo foreclosed on Snoopy, and it has been in the news ever since.

So unfortunate that it is a sign of the times. Even Snoopy was not immune.

Hi Christine, I'm reading the other comments that say how sad.  Yes, I agree it is sad for Snoopy but how exciting for you!  It is great that they remembered your video and called for permission to use it.  Thanks for the encouragement to use video.

I'm really hoping that the owner of the Snoopy House is able to get back on their feet and doesn't lose the Christmas spirit. Let us hope they are back next year bigger and better than ever, bringing joy to kids and families.

Well hopefully Snoopy took to the skies and shot that mean ole bank down.  Woodstock could jump in.

Aimee - It is sad though the good news is that Snoopy has somewhere to celebrate the holidays.

Linda - It's always exciting to get those sort of calls, and I too needed the encouragement.

Todd - He's actually amazing.  I think he's been there each night at City Hall bringing joy despite everything.

Joan - They do, and me too.

Larry - Would't that be great?
