史努比大戰紅男爵 - Snoopy vs. The Red Baron

quill mark

史努比(Snoopy)大家都知道,他有很誇張的幻想症,老喜歡扮演一些稀奇古怪的角色,像是 Joe Cool,和 World War I Flying Ace(一戰王牌飛行員)。

PC Game: Snoopy vs The Red BaronWorld War I Flying Ace 據說最早是在 1965 年 10 月10 日的「花生米村」(Peanuts)漫畫出現,但我還沒看過這則漫畫。

紅男爵 Manfred von Richthofen

一次大戰中,最著名的空戰英雄,是德國有著「紅男爵」之稱的厲秋芬(Red Baron, Manfred von Richthofen),他號稱擊落過八十架飛機。他的故事,我應該是在近二十年前的全球防衛雜誌看的,而到底是誰擊落「紅男爵」,這也是歷史的一個謎團。

在「花生米村」漫畫中,史努比這位空戰王牌飛行員,他的主要對手就是「紅男爵」,這兩人的對戰,還被做成了電動玩具呢(圖左)!而史努比駕著狗屋與對手纏鬥的英姿(空戰中戰機的纏鬥,就叫做「dogfight」,這也是非常有意思的「巧合」吧……),請看下面這段 YouTube 上的短片:

1966 年,一支來自美國佛羅里達州的樂團 The Royal Guardsmen,以這個頗受歡迎的主題創作了一首歌曲:"Snoopy vs. The Red Baron",此曲曾經奪得全美排行第二名,且蟬聯了有四週之久,是一首非常有趣的歌曲:

     

Snoopy vs. Red Baron

Royal GuardsmenAfter the turn of the century
In the clear blue skies over Germany
Came a roar and a thunder men had never heard
Like the scream and the sound of a big war bird
Up in the sky, a man in a plane
Baron von Richthofen was his name
Eighty men tried, and eighty men died
Now they're buried together on the countryside

(Chorus:)
Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' out the score
Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany
In the nick of time, a hero arose
A funny-looking dog with a big black nose
He flew into the sky to seek revenge
But the Baron shot him down--"Curses, foiled again!"
(Chorus:)

Now, Snoopy had sworn that he'd get that man
So he asked the Great Pumpkin for a new battle plan
He challenged the German to a real dogfight
While the Baron was laughing, he got him in his sight
That Bloody Red Baron was in a fix
He'd tried everything, but he'd run out of tricks
Snoopy fired once, and he fired twice
And that Bloody Red Baron went spinning out of sight

(Chorus:)

(Chorus-fade:)
