the cover of Life March 17, 1967 issue.
          Ang “Peanuts” na nagtatampok sa mga popular comic strip characters na sina Charlie Brown at ang asong beagle na si Snoopy, ay isang syndicated American comic strip na isinulat at iginuhit ni Charles M. Schultz (1922-2000) at nailathala mula October 2, 1950 hanggang February 13, 2000, at umabot ng 17,897 ang bilang ng mga strips na nailathala. Sa kasikatan ng “Peanuts,” umabot ng humigit-kumulang 2,600 pahayagan ang naglalathala ng comic strip na ito at ang bilang ng mambabasang tumatangkilik ay tinatayang nasa 355 million sa mahigit 75 bansa at iniliwat sa 21 lengguwahe.
          Noong 1960 nagkaroon ito ng sariling linya ng mga greeting cards na gawa ng Hallmark. Nang ipagbawal ang pananalangin sa paaralan sa America bago magsimula ang klase noong 1963, tinalakay ito sa lingguhang “Peanuts” ni Schutz. Lumabas din sa cover ng Life Magazine sina Charlie Brown at Snoopy noong March 17, 1967 (Tignan ang kaakibat na larawan). Noon namang March 18, 1969, pinanganlang Charlie Brown at Snoopy ang command module at lunar module ng Apollo 10. Nauna rito, iginuhit na ni Schultz ang pag-landing ni Snoopy sa buwan, bago pa man nagkaroon ng lunar landing ang Apollo 10.
