What a load of stuffing!

Officials with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade confirmed today that Snoopy—who has appeared in no less than 36 marches down Broadway—has been deflated.

The beloved Peantus character, who has appeared in the Macy's parade as a flying ace, astronaut, skating champion, and a New Year's Millenium reveler, will be downgraded Nov. 22 to the role of a supporting character on a Peanuts-themed float.

Instead, kids of all ages will have to watch this year's balloons, including Kung Fu Panda, Papa Smurf and a sock monkey named Julius.
