"Jerome Harrison’s escape from Eric Mangini’s jumbo doghouse (Harrison was trapped in the basement with the Van Goghs)"

From a Peanuts fan, I thank you, Mike, for your obscure-reference-that-no-one-else-seems-to-have-noticed-yet. (Though if I'm not mistaken, Snoopy only had one Van Gogh, which was later lost in a fire and replaced with an Andrew Wyeth.)
