    I wonder if Snoopy’s siblings can do the “Beagle.”

    Snoopy would rock “Dancing with the Stars.” I’ll bet all the female pros would fight over who got to be his partner!

    I can just hear the Guaraldi “Linus and Lucy” theme in my head.

    What a wonderful gift you gave the world, Sparky! ‘Thanks’ doesn’t quite cover it…

    Nicholas Brendon does a mean Snoopy dance. You can see a bit of it on the Buffy ep “The Replacement”, fifth season.

    I always love his face in the 3rd panel with his little smile.

    I call him ‘Helicopter Snoopy’ when his ears wave around.

    LOL xxx

    Chubby Checker (or maybe James Brown) might have made some serious money on doing the “Beagle”, if they got the rights from Sparky of course..

    @RobertNowell and anyone else who thinks that any bird in Peanuts just has to be Woodstock…

    I grew up in the ‘60s and early ’70s. When I first got into the Peanuts comics in the mid-60s, there were few strips that even used birds. The Peanuts books that had a bird that would become Woodstock did not come out until around 1968. Even then, the bird was seen only sporadically. I remember the name didn’t come until later. There are birds of many different colors and not every bird in this strip is Woodstock.

    From Wikipedia:

    “Snoopy began befriending birds in the early 1960s, when they started using his doghouse for various purposes: a rest stop during migrations, a nesting site, or a place to play cards. None of these birds were ever given names, or even used speech balloons; they simply looked at Snoopy and he understood them. What set Woodstock apart from all these earlier birds was the fact that he attached himself to Snoopy and assumed the role of Snoopy’s sidekick and assistant. There had been no recurring relationships between Snoopy and the earlier birds who visited the yard of the Brown family, and Snoopy was as often as not more hostile than friendly toward those birds. But, in the April 4, 1967 Peanuts daily comic strip, a single bird flew in after a long flight while Snoopy was lying on top of his dog house. He chose Snoopy’s nose as a good place to rest, and Snoopy uncharacteristically accepted this intrusion. Over the next two days, Charles Schulz began to establish character traits for Snoopy’s new friend by revealing that he could talk (more accurately that he could complain, in the form of repetitive sounds in word form—”gripe, gripe, gripe, gripe", “complain, complain, …”), that, unlike normal birds, he didn’t like to fly south every winter, and that his flying skills were not quite up to snuff. By the end of this four-strip sequence, Snoopy, in character as the World War I Flying Ace, learns that the bird is his new mechanic — Woodstock’s first supporting role. After this introduction, the unnamed Woodstock is seen with Snoopy on occasion, and other birds continue to appear as they had for years. But Woodstock is singled out as the bird who befriended Snoopy, in part by continuing references to him as the Flying Ace’s mechanic (July 12, 1967; June 12–14, 1968). Finally, on June 14, 1968, fourteen months after his first landing on Snoopy and after a second appearance as a supporting character for Snoopy (his wrist wrestling partner on April 25, 1968), the most important aspect of Woodstock’s relationship with Snoopy is made clear—Snoopy first refers to this bird as his buddy. That identification was more than enough for readers to know, if they hadn’t already figured it out, that this little bird, name or no name, had assumed the role of a regular character in the Peanuts cast.

    “Schulz did not give him a name until June 22, 1970. Schulz acknowledged in several print and TV interviews in the mid-1970s that he took Woodstock’s name from the rock festival. (The festival’s logo showed a bird perched on a guitar.)”
