Snoopy, the dog, goes way back in history, all the way back to the 4th of October 1950. That was the date of his first appearence as a comic strip. In case you dont know, Snoopy is a good-natured beagle who is prone to imagining fantasy lives, including being an author, a college student known as “Joe Cool” and a World War One flying Ace.
Snoopy is Charlie Brown’s pet dog in the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz. He can also be found in Charlie Brown movies and television, like The Peanuts Movie. Now he can also be found on walls by street artists that have probably grown up watching or reading his comics.
Snoopy cannot talk, so his thoughts are usually shown in thought balloons. In the animated Peanuts films and television specials, Snoopy’s thoughts are not verbalized; his moods are instead conveyed through growls, sobs, laughter, and monosyllabic utterances such as “bleah” or “hey” as well as through pantomime.
Snoopy has managed to symbolise the laid back kind of personality that maintains a simple everyday behaviour but however remains obsessed with certain entertaining fantasies. A charming character that always entertains the free spirited 🙂
