Snoopy, no doubt, is the most famous dog throughout the world. Here, some little notes of his funny biography.
It was created by Charles Schulz on October 4, 1950 (two days after the start of the strip). He is one of the main characters in the comic strip Peanuts.
He was to be called Sniffy, but it existed a previous character with this name in another comic strip. Snoopy is a Norwegian name that means ‘little nosy’.
It seems that Snoopy is a Beagle, although some people refer to him as an English Bull Terrier.
Her owner is Charlie Brown, a dull man with a dull life. Snoopy criticizes constantly him. Snoopy imagines that he could manage a fantastic existence. Some of the most memorable moments are when he imagines he is a writer: ‘It was a dark and stormy night …’
In 1997, Charles Schulz said: Snoopy ‘has to go into his fantasy world to survive. Otherwise, life would be dull, miserable. I don’t envy dogs the life they have to live.’
In its first two years of existence, Snoopy had many more similarities with real dogs: walked on four legs, was completely “silent” and not verbalized his thoughts to the reader in balloons.
Snoopy has become the NASA mascot. The U.S. space agency gives the Snoopy award to employees and contractors for achievements related to improving safety or success in a space mission. NASA also called Charlie Brown to the command module of the mission Apollo 10 and Snoopy to the Lunar Module.
Yes, no doubt, a fantastic main character and a great mascot, symbol of different schools, teams, companies, airports… Would you like to have a pet as Snoopy?
