What is the name of the flute song played after Snoopy crashes, while he moving through the country side in "The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown?"

You can check out the full song list at the Vince Guaraldi songlist: http://www.fivecentsplease.org/dpb/cuesheet.h... but I think you're referring to "Graveyard Theme". Wish they had a recording of this lovely track. The flutist is amazing!

Actually, the Guaraldi tune "Graveyard Theme" is the music heard in the title sequence of the TV special "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown." The music asked about here, where Snoopy imagines he's down behind enemy lines in France in WWI, is called "Breathless", a cue composed by John Scott Trotter, the musical producer for many for the Peanuts Specials.
