Snoopy is one of the main characters of the Peanuts comic strip. He is owned and cared for by Charlie Brown. Snoopy is blessed with a rich, Walter Mitty-like fantasy life. At times it is not clear who is in charge. Snoopy first appeared in the October 4, 1950 strip. At that point, he was more like a regular dog. Soon, however, he became much more in his imagination. This began with impersonations of animals and other characters in the strip, but soon expanded to such characterizations as a lawyer, a writer, a college student who's too cool for classes ("Joe Cool"), and, most famously, a World War I flying ace, trying to snuff out the famous Red Baron (The doghouse served as a surrogate Sopwith Camel). Snoopy also began walking on his hind legs, sleeping on top of his doghouse, and even playing shortstop on Charlie Brown's baseball team. The interior of Snoopy's doghouse also began to be described (but never seen in the comics) as far larger and more elaborate than its exterior would suggest (like Doctor Who's TARDIS). Snoopy kept books, a TV, a phonograph, a pool table, and a Van Gogh painting in his house, losing them when his house burned down (in a story arc starting from the September 19, 1966 strip). Charlie Brown rebuilt it, adding a staircase and replacing the Van Gogh with an Andrew Wyeth.

Snoopy has some little bird friends, the most loyal of which is Woodstock. Snoopy also has seven siblings, Spike, Belle, Marbles, Olaf, Andy, and two others named in the special "Snoopy's Reunion" as Molly and Rover. These eight puppies were born on the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm. Snoopy has recalled his family going to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm's chapel every day, and being part of a fifty-beagle choir. He also taught Sunday school there, a fact Charlie Brown sometimes forgets.

At an early age, Snoopy was taken in by a girl named Lila, but when she was unable to keep him, he was returned to the farm, where Charlie Brown picked him up. This fact came into light when Lila was in the hospital and wrote to Snoopy, asking him to come and visit her. Linus did some rescarch and learned of this, sharing his information with Charlie Brown when Snoopy returned.

Snoopy appears to like Charlie Brown. Once when Charlie Brown came home from camp, Snoopy made a welcome home banner and was wating outside Charlie Brown's house with cake. However, the banner said "Welcome home, Round-headed Kid." Snoopy often referred to Charlie Brown as "Round-Headed Kid" not out of spite, but simply because he could not remember his name. It's also been showcased many times that his favorite beverage is root beer.

His filming voice is Chris Wedge


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Snoopy is a fictional character in the long-running comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. He is Charlie Brown's pet beagle. Snoopy began his life in the strip as a fairly ordinary dog, but eventually evolved into perhaps the strip's most dynamic character — and among the most recognizable comic characters in the world. The original drawings of Snoopy were "slightly patterned" after Spike, one of Schulz's childhood dogs.
