“Yes, that’s correct Charlie Brown. You and your gang are admired by millions of folks out there-thus-Collectible!
When I was 11 years old back in the ’60s, I would save my babysitting money, walk a mile to the local corner store, and purchase the latest version of Charles Schulz “Peanuts” comic strip paperback books.
I was always so excited to see what Charlie Brown and his Peanuts gang might be up to next.
Somehow, I identified with the main animated Peanuts character, Charlie Brown. He made me feel like I wasn’t alone with the ups and downs of being a child. My father was in the military, so our family had been relocated to several cities when I was growing up. Relocating, changing schools and making new friends can be problematic to a child, but reading about the endeavors of Charlie Brown, made it seem a bit easier to cope with. Charlie Brown’s: “I get knocked down, but I get up again” attitude towards life was priceless.
I loved the Peanuts so much, my nickname became “Peppermint Patty” to friends and family members.
Another one of my favorite cartoon characters in the Peanuts comic strip is Charlie Brown’s infamous conceited and creative dog, Snoopy.
Snoopy, by far, has definitely reached celebrity status in the world of cartoon characters. Ever since his 1950s appearance in the Peanuts comic strip, he has become an American icon. His desire to become an ace airplane pilot with dreams of taking down the “Red Baron” helped him to become an official NASA mascot for safety for the Apollo Program. He also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Not too bad for a cute cartoon Beagle doggy.
Because of the popularity of the Charles Schulz “Peanuts” comic strip, collectors of their merchandise abound.
Here are some valuable vintage Peanuts merchandise concerned quite collectible today:
1958 Hungerford toy figures-Schroader and the 1956 Snoopy, can sell for over $500!
This but a few collectible items; there are also, vintage piggy banks, lunchboxes, posters, toys, apparel items and more, which can be just as valuable based on age, condition and rarity.
I live you with this famous quote from Charles M. Schulz-the creator of the “Peanuts” characters and comic strip:
