    Charles Schulz Peanuts Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 6-25-60 (United Feature Syndicate, 1960). As every Peanuts reader knows, Snoopy is no average hound dog. According to lore, Snoopy was inspired by Charles Schulz's childhood pet, Spike, "Snoopy's not a real dog of course -- he's an image of what people would like a dog to be. But he has his origins in Spike, my dog that I had when I was a kid. White with black spots. He was the wildest and smartest dog I've ever encountered. Smart? Why, he had a vocabulary of at least 50 words. I mean it. I'd tell him to go down to the basement and bring up a potato and he'd do it." As the beloved beagle grew in popularity, so did the success of Peanuts. With panels starring Charlie Brown, Lucy Van Pelt, and Snoopy from a peak period, this episode, which was often reproduced in calendars, memorabilia, and collections, is sure to be a showpiece of any Peanuts art collection. The image area of this sixties daily measures 27" x 5.5". As usual, the paper was folded between panels two and three; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.
