Snoopy's original artist described him this way: "He can win or lose, be a disaster, a hero, or anything, and yet it all works out. I like the fact that when he's in real trouble, he can retreat into a fantasy." In other words, Snoopy is a bit like you and me.

Did you know? Snoopy made his first comic appearance in 1950. Since then, he's often been seen in the middle of a "happy dance." Why does Snoopy dance for joy? Charlie Brown explained, "Some days, Snoopy loves life so much he can't express it." So he dances!

You don't need your dancing shoes to draw Snoopy at his finest. All you need is a pencil and a sheet of paper.

Pinats - BRANDSHOP - LiveJournal

In October 1950, the American four-picture comic debuted and became one of the most widely read stories. Dubbed the controversial Peanuts, it was about Charlie Brown, Snoopy the dog, and his friends. Over the years, the Pinats have expanded beyond the dailies, the ultimate in their creator Charles Schultz's wildest dreams. Later, a full book, an animated series, and a lot of merchandising were released. This is a favorite subject for Vans collaborations, which each season prepare new surprises with recognizable characters.

The story of Charles Schultz

Charles Schultz was better at drawing than many children even in kindergarten. Even teachers told him about the talents of the future artist. "People don't seem to understand that someone could be born to draw comics, but I think that's what I was," Schultz said.

Charles' parents enrolled him in art school, where the shy student mailed his work, for which he never received an A. After the war, in the late 1940s, he worked for a Catholic magazine describing other people's drawings. But ambition and growing self-confidence paid off when Schultz sold several comics under the name "L'il Folks". The fruit of his creativity and labor were Charlie Brown and Shermy. Before long, respected editor Jim Freeman offered him a full-length strip, which the United Feature Syndicate comic book syndicate fell in love with. Having signed a contract with them, Charles began his successful career. K 19In the 1980s, he was on the Forbes list as the highest paid comic book creator.

Peanuts characters

Unfortunately, the name "L'il Folks" had to be changed at the very beginning, as it already existed. Schultz is still unhappy with the name change, but the fact remains. The stories became "Peanuts", which can be translated as "pot-bellied trifle".

The comic focuses around young children where adults exist but are rarely seen. The main character, Charlie Brown, is mild-mannered, nervous, and often insecure. He can't handle a kite, win a baseball game, or kick a soccer ball from his hot-tempered girlfriend Lucy, Linus's sister.

Charlie is said to be the alter ego of Charles' creator. These are not just naive stories about a child, but a philosophical, psychologically complex story of the artist about himself. The interaction of the characters formed a tangle of relationships that led the Pinats forward and due to which they received an unprecedented response from readers. The comic became a reflection of the pop culture of the 50s. He achieved incredible success, thanks in part to subsequent television specials, including "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and "It's a Giant Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." The episodes were nominated for an Emmy Award and are still broadcast on holidays in the US. And the silver Snoopy, designed by Schultz himself, has even flown into space as a security charm.

Many of the characters were inspired by real people and events. The beagle dog Snoopy, who became one of the early characters in the comic, was created from the artist's memories of the real dog Spike. The name Snoopy was coined by his mother as a child for the future pet they wanted to have.

While still at school in Minneapolis, Schultz met the real Charlie Brown, whose name he took as the basis for the main character. And the artist's first love was the red-haired Donna Johnson, in whose image Charles created Peppermint Patty.

In 1968, after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. , Schultz introduced the first African-American character, Franklin. His father was a soldier in the Vietnam War. Another hero, a yellow bird named Woodstock, was named after the iconic 1969 music festival.

In 2002, the Charles M. Schultz Museum and Research Center was opened in Sonoma County, California, where the artist lived and worked for four decades. In addition to the museum's Peanuts collections, Schultz's working studio and life-size Snoopy's house have been recreated here.

Vans x Peanuts

The history of the Peanuts team is about good adventures that are enjoyed not only by children, but also by adults. Heroes fight fictional characters and find themselves in situations that are quite ordinary for children. Charlie's famous "Good grief!" have become a reflection of his character and are now emblazoned on the caps of the Vans x Peanuts collection.

This is not the first time the team has released clothes, shoes and backpacks with their favorite characters. So at the beginning of autumn we saw a new set of designs for classic Vans models. Among them are plaid slip-ons, a whole comic strip on Vans Authentic and Snoopy dancing on monochrome Old Skool. The collection also included t-shirts, sweatshirts, backpacks and more for small and big Pinats fans.

By the way, on the eve of Christmas and New Year holidays, Vans is preparing another surprise. In honor of one of the most iconic "A Charlie Brown Christmas" series, the brand offers classic slip-ons, sweatshirts, t-shirts, socks and caps featuring Snoopy and Charlie Brown trying to find the true meaning of Christmas.
