A Snoopy Story

Thats right!  I’m writing a post about Snoopy.  Today is the 60th anniversary of the “Peanuts” comic strip created by Charles Schulz.  Almost everyone knows who the “Peanuts” characters are, and to this day the comic runs in 1,800 papers.

I’ve always liked “Peanuts”.  Some of my earliest memories involve Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and Lucy.  In fact, my very first memory of anything in life involves Snoopy.  When I was two years old, I had my first surgery.  After waking up in the recovery room I remember turning to my right and seeing a stuffed Snoopy sitting next to me.  He was wearing one of those scrub hats doctors wear.  Apparently I took him into the operating room with me, but I don’t remember that part.

As for cards, “Peanuts” doesn’t have too many.  In 1965, Panini produced an “I Love Snoopy” sticker, and there is a 33-card set featuring all the “Peanuts” characters.  That set contains randomly inserted Charles Schulz autographs.  I think Schulz deserves a cut signature made.

Fun Fact: Did you know 1:4 grown men still have a stuffed animal?
