    A pleasure to meet you, Woodstock. (How DID Sparky come up with that name anyway? Was the 1969 music festival happening at the time?)

    June 22, 1970, truly a momentous day in Peanuts history.

    Maybe “Woodstock” was a sly joke on his inability to fly straight. Was Schulz implying the birdie was high on some hemp seed?

    Possibly ingesting some of those Peyote seeds

    Before he had a name, he was simply called “Bird Hippie.”

    Schulz originally considered the bird to be a female but changed his mind after naming it in June 1970. In an interview in 1987 Schulz said; “I had been reading the Life magazine article about the Woodstock festival and I had the little bird in the strip. It was a she and she was Snoopy’s secretary and I was doing secretary jokes quite often so then I thought Woodstock would be a good name for this bird and also, it will get the attention of these people that liked that kind of thing. Suddenly she was not a secretary; she became Woodstock, the boy. It just happened. But that’s what’s good about a comic strip – you can just do it.” – from Peanuts WikiLove Woodstock’s smile!

    What’s in a name? That which we call a bird, by any other name would sound a tweet.

    The funny thing is that Snoopy and Woodstock were hanging out quite some time before this, like they were best friends prior to this strip where he found out the name and now all of a sudden he’s calling Woodstock stupid for no apparent reason. I feel like this strip could have been done much earlier than it was. (Before the two got to know each other.) Just my opinion.
