Snoopy Toy Commemorating Apollo 11 Landing on Moon, 1969

Summary

Charlie Brown's dog Snoopy was no ordinary dog. He walked on two legs, showed a rebellious streak, and daydreamed of being "World Famous." Four months before a real man landed on the moon, Snoopy appeared in a "Peanuts" comic strip as "the World Famous Astronaut" walking on the moon. This Peanuts Pocket Doll commemorates the 1969 moon landing.
