    Description

    Charles Schulz Peanuts Snoopy and Charlie Brown Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 8-15-55 (United Feature Syndicate, 1955). Good Grief -- the things a dog has to do just to get a treat! Charles Schulz elaborated on the roots 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 the early Snoopy episodes is the much more "realistic" behavior of the beloved beagle. This uproarious daily has an image area of 27" x 5". The strip has been professionally cleaned to Excellent condition. Also included with this lot is the original envelope that Schulz used to send the strip to a fan back in 1956!
