After finally settling for “Snoopy”, Charles Schultz originally wanted his famous beagle to be called what?
Snoopy was one of Charles Schulz’s earliest Peanuts characters, appearing for the first time on October 4, 1950, just two days after the comic strip’s debut. Schulz loosely based Snoopy on a black-and-white dog he had as a teenager. The cartoonist originally planned to call his cartoon dog Sniffy, but shortly before the comic strip launched Schulz was passing a newsstand and noticed a comic magazine featuring a dog with the same name. Finding himself in need of a new name, Schulz remembered his mother’s suggestion that the family should name their next dog “Snoopy.”
