Description:
Charles Schulz Peanuts Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 10-20-68 (United Feature Syndicate, 1968). Charles Schulz often recounted the development of Snoopy: "I'd always been drawing little dogs in the (Li'l Folks) strip, so I named one Snoopy, the one I would be using the most. The real dog who was the forerunner of Snoopy was named Spike. He was bigger than the beagle that Snoopy turned out to be, but he was kind of a wild dog marked in a way similar to Snoopy." Part of the charm of this prime-time sixties movie matinee rib-tickler is the "I'm just one of the kids" behavior of the beloved beagle. This peak-period Sunday has an image area of 22.5" x 15", and it has been matted to an overall size of 28.5" x 21.5". The strip is in Excellent condition. This art is sure to be hotly pursued, so get your bids in early.

Schulz, Charles:Schulz, Charles is the creator of Peanuts, an renowned American comic strip. He served in the army during World War II, later becoming an art school instructor and then a free-lance cartoonist for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and the Saturday Evening Post.

American cartoonist, illustrator, and author, 1922-2000
