I have long been a fan of all the Peanuts gang and love to see how Charlie Brown gets on in life. My favorite of all the characters is his dog Snoopy. I believe a lot of you know about Charlie Brown and Snoopy because they have been popular for a very long time. This comic strip was created by Charles M. Schultz and you can also view their cartoons on YouTube. When I was in my teens I discovered a funny pop song which told about Snoopy’s fantasy to fight the Red Baron. I have posted it here for you to listen to. I know when I was growing up a lot of kids had big or small Snoopy stuffed dolls but somehow I never asked for one. It is always interesting to me to see a comic about small children that goes on for years but the children never grow up. Of course, the reason is that the story is about these children and not about them as grown-ups. Another favorite is a little yellow bird who becomes friends with Snoopy and his name is Woodstock. What is interesting is that the story about Charlie Brown began in 1950 at which time supposedly this drawn character was four years old. This is the only drawn character I know that has become older because by 1957 it was thought that he was six years old and finally in 1979 he was 8 ½ and at that age he has remained. Are you a fan of Charlie Brown? Did you have a plush Snoopy? Source on CB age: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie_Brown
