60th Anniversary for Snoopy

snoopy 60 anniversary peanuts

The popular Peanuts comics by American cartoonist Charles M. Schulz turns 60 in 2010! The story of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy and the rest of the Peanuts gang debuted on 2 October, 1950 and what started as a comic strip turned TV show and book, gained worldwide adoration. The most notable of the bunch is of course Snoopy, the pet beagle of Charlie Brown. To celebrate this momentous occasion, displays have been set up around the world to showcase this lovable children’s cartoon character with the help of various designers. Vidafine was at New Town Plaza in Hong Kong this week and wanted to share with you some of the cool designs that were on display.

To give you a bit of background on Snoopy’s character, he was a fictional character created by Schulz but his features resembled that of Schulz’s own childhood dog Spike. For the first two years of his existence, Snoopy was merely a silent character in the Peanuts comic strip. Later, his thoughts were verbalized in thought bubbles with simple words and sounds. The Peanuts characters would then read his thoughts and respond to them. He was a true companion for Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang, I guess it is true when they say a ‘Dog is a Man’s best friend’.

Here’s a look at some of the awesome designs that we came across including ones from Vivienne Westwood; British Fashion designer, Simone Legno; Italian designer of the Tokidoki brand, Nathan Jurevicius; Australian illustrator known for his ScaryGirl characters and Chico Hayasaki; Japanese illustrator.
