Cartoon Canines

Snoopy the WriterSnoopy - White beagle with black ears created by cartoonist Charles M. Schultz for his popular comic strip Peanuts which debuted on October 2, 1950.

Snoopy lives in small wooden doghouse (he loves to lay on top of it) located in the backyard of Charlie Brown's house. He was born at the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm and is the Walter Mitty of the animal world, always dreaming of great adventures.

His imagination ran the gambit from being a world's famous quarterback tossing a record breaking pass; a World War I pilot challenging the Red Baron in a Sopwith Camel airplane; a beagle scout leading a group of intrepid hikers; Joe Cool, a BMOC (big man on campus) who wears sunglasses; and even a world famous novelist writing such wonderful verse as "It was a dark and stormy night."

Snoopy hated coconut and got claustrophobia in the weeds. For fun, Snoopy slurped the face of a loudmouth girl named Lucy who would run away screaming "Dog germs!"

Snoopy (one of eight in a litter) sometimes interacted with his canine brothers Spike, Marbles, Olaf and his sister Belle. Another acquaintance was a tiny bird named Woodstock who followed Snoopy around to caddy his golf game, among other activities.

The Snoopy character was inspired by Spike, a black and white family pet given to Charles M. Schulz when he was thirteen-years-old.

Snoopy has appeared on such TV cartoon specials as It A Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966), He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown (1968), Snoopy Come Home (1972), Its the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown (1974) and the cartoon series CHARLIE BROWN AND SNOOPY/CBS/1985.

TRIVIA NOTE: Baron Manfred von Richthofen (a.k.a. "The Red Baron") was a top flying ace of the German air force during World War I. He flew 80 successful missions over Europe in his red Fokker tri-plane. Inspired by Snoopy's encounters with this famed aviator, the musical group the Royal Guardsman recorded the hit record "Snoopy vs. the Red Baron" in the 1960s. The 1969 Apollo 10 lunar module was named "Snoopy."
