line drawing of Snoopy by Charles Schultz spacer
figure 1


Snoopy. Charles Schultz's beagle, a character from the well-known comic strip, Peanuts. His visage is probably one of the most recognizable in the world.

Snoopy lives a rather Walter Mitty life of the imagination. His many fantasies include being a World War I flying ace, a figure skater, and a famous author. Schulz describes his character's role in the comic strip this way: “He has to retreat into his fanciful world in order to survive. Otherwise, he leads kind of a dull, miserable life. I don't envy dogs the lives they have to live. They're trapped living with families that they never knew anything about and so Snoopy survives by living this extra life.”reference 1
