Blessing Snoopy Alarm Clock, 1970-1980

Summary

Snoopy was just an ordinary dog when the "Peanuts" comic strip started in 1950. But that didn't last for long. He soon became almost human, walking on two legs, showing a rebellious streak, and daydreaming about being anywhere but his doghouse. Increasingly, the public related so well to Snoopy's persona that he became a popular figure on Peanuts-related merchandising products.
