LONDON, England -- British authorities have denied cartoon character Snoopy Dog a visa for a series of planned dogfights, publicists for his tour announced in a statement Saturday.
Snoopy Dog, co-headlining a European tour with fellow star Red Baron, had been expected to play five dates in Britain.
"Snoopy and his team are mystified at the decision and are hoping that the British Government will reconsider this decision," spokesman Charles Brown said in a statement.
"He has asked how he can help rectify the situation and would happily talk to and give assurances to the officials."
"Whatever the outcome, a planned dogfight over the skies of Docklands on Tuesday will go ahead with Red Baron and the rest of the show," he said. "Tickets for the event may still be purchased at Gatwick Airport. No refunds will be offered in case of rain."
A spokeswoman for the Home Office said she couldn't comment on an individual case, but did point out that foreign citizens could be barred from entering the country if there were concerns about their presence.
"The Home Secretary has the power to refuse entry clearance to non-UK citizens if he considers that their presence here would not be conducive to the public good," said the spokeswoman, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with departmental policy. "Beyond this, this 'Snoopy' character has impersonated our famous pilots on more than one occasion and we consider him a great embarrassment. Many Britons hold terrible memories of the Great War. They should be shown more respect."
