First Snoopy thought balloon: 5/27/52
I was wrong. Snoopy’s doghouse with a TV antenna was 11/19/51
First appearance of the doghouse was 9/4/51.https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/peanuts/images/d/d2/19510904.gif/revision/latest/scale-to-width-down/500?cb=20151114081657
The doghouse has appeared before, but I think this is the first time that there’s any indication that it’s anything other than a typical wooden box. And I think we’ve seen Snoops think before, but that this is the longest to date.

Okay, now he’s just messin’ with us.
I wondered the same thing.
