    Charles Schulz - Peanuts Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 3-19-66 (United Feature Syndicate, 1966). Birds have always tried Snoopy's patience, but he finally made a fast friend in Woodstock in 1970. Before that, Snoopy began befriending birds in the early sixties, when they started using his doghouse for various purposes -- a rest stop during migrations, a nesting site, or a place to play cards. In the beginning, none of these birds were ever given names, or even used speech balloons, they simply looked at Snoopy and he understood them. What makes this daily remarkable is that this is the only strip in which one of these birds actually has a speech balloon, and he startles Snoopy with a heartfelt expression of "Bleah!" When Charles Schulz returned from the army to Minneapolis in 1945, he took a job as an art teacher at Art Instruction, Inc. (from which he had taken correspondence courses before he was drafted). This delightful daily was a gift to the sons of Thomas A. Shallbetter, a contributing writer to Art Instruction, Inc. textbooks and this strip came to the current consignor through inheritance. Charles Schulz inscribed and signed this daily in the upper border, "For Tim, Todd, and Paul -- Best wishes, Charles M. Schulz." This daily has an image area that measures approximately 27" x 5.5". The art was folded between the second and third panels; otherwise it is in Excellent condition.
