It seems there were some concerns and commentary about the state of the balloons at the 2023 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, particularly Snoopy’s balloon. Here’s a recap:

Andy Cohen, while watching the parade with his son, noticed that the Snoopy balloon appeared to be “skimming the street” and drooping a bit low. He also commented on the Diary of a Wimpy Kid balloon, pointing out it looked deflated.

Viewers at home and on social media also noticed the state of the balloons. Some made humorous comments about Snoopy looking “hungover” or “droopy,” with observations about the Diary of a Wimpy Kid balloon’s deflated appearance as well.


There were various tweets expressing surprise and amusement at the condition of the balloons. Some viewers made jokes about Snoopy’s hat sliding down, while others expressed disappointment or made playful complaints about “deflategate.”

Some viewers speculated that the balloons might have appeared deflated due to windy conditions in New York City during the parade.

Overall, it appears that the state of the balloons, especially Snoopy’s, became a topic of conversation and humor among viewers watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
