Snoopy Sunday

Kimo: Go Giants! This is Snoopy (from da Peanuts comics). He is all over da town of Santa Rosa cuz da great cartoon artist Charles Schulz used to live in Santa Rosa. Mommakitty has been a Snoopy fan since she was a little gurl!

Sabi: Fer da last 3 years a Peanuts character has been chosen, and da local artists git sponsored to paint a big statue. Then they are placed around da town and it's like goin' on a scavenger hunt to find them all! Mommakitty & Daddykitty found a lots! Click on da collage below and see some more.

(click on collage to git to Flicker photo sets)

Kimo: Here is one that has a credit card in his paw cuz he is at da mall. Boy, Skeezix would really like this one - he's wearing pink, AND shopping (2 of Skeezix's favorite things)!

Sabi: Mommakitty used to ice skate wif da late great Charles Schulz at Snoopy's Home Ice Arena in Santa Rosa. Da ice arena is next door to da Schulz Museum. She also bought her first pair of ice skates from Mr. Schulz's daughter (who was in da Ice Capades). Another one of Mr. Schulz's daughter's boughted Mommakitty's parent's house which now gots a big Charlie Brown statue in da front yard painted like da Jolly Green Giant!

Kimo: I likes woofies and all, but one thing I was wonderin' . . . how come da Peanut's comics never hadded any cats?


Why did Snoopy quit the comic strip?
Because he was tired of working for peanuts!

Yer rite! I LOVE the Snoopy at the mall one the best, and I bet he shaves with a pink DAISY razer, just like Mr Tasty Face!

Daisy said...

I like Snoopy, but Woodstock is my favorite. Your mom was very lucky to get to meet Mr. Schultz!

Hey, my Mommie has a pink Daisy razor, too!

I always wondered why there were never any kitties too. But Snoopy and Woodstock are very cool. Thanks for showing us all of the cool photos.

MomBean loves Snoopy too! We've got cranes all around here that are painted different colors.

Snoopy is fantastic! They did a similar thing here with cows painted by local artists. Very cool.

How was the virgin voyage in the stoller? Ernest and I can't wait to hear!

Wowee, Kimo & Sabi, we have so much in common! You've got Snoopies and we've got Colts! Yes, it's definitely time to have painted kitties everywhere! My human artists would paint anything. One time when they lived in Las Vegas, they got a commission to paint fire hydrants all over the city.

Also, your mommakitty is famous for skating with Charles Schulz and mine is famous for having a date with Kenny Rogers!

Actually, there was a cat in the strip for a short time, long years ago. From a Abby Wasserman article, dated 1985:

Years ago, I tried to introduce a cat, and it turned it into a cat-and-dog strip, and spoiled Snoopy's special relationship with the kids.

Also, Wikipedia has a mention of Faron the cat. Most of the later strips, the cat was harassing Snoopy from off camera, usually after Snoopy started things.

Wow ... That is furry cool! Mom likes Woodstock 'cuz he's yellow.
