I mostly blogged classic media but now I'm turning more into television in general. What can I say? I have a love affair with quality programming!?!

Happy Birthday Snoopy
Snoopy is here! Go on google search and type in Snoopy's birthday. It says its today. Although in reality it probably is not really his birthday and this is not really when he first came out but still....for some reason it's his birthday and I think it's because of one of the comic strips content. August 28, 1951 is for some reason considered by mostly everyone to be Snoopy's birthday but if you wikipedia Snoopy's history this shows not to be the case.
Snoopy, whose fictional birthday has been established as October 4, made his first appearance in the strip of October 4, 1950, two days after the strip premiered. He was first identified by name on November 10.Snoopy's name could have also been Sniffy if the name had not been already taken. May 27, 1952 Snoopy had a thought bubble, where short one words were often expressed such as FOOD.
However we all know that we adore this little dog. Beagle or whatever (he first claims he is not a beagle). I love this dog sooo much and love the early comic strips. I just want to cuddle him all day long! So cool, so cute, so awesome, tha'ts Snoopy.
THis is one of my personal favorites and it is often used to show that at first Snoopy did not talk but instead had thought bubbles like a question mark.
