“The Easter Beagle” is Coming! #EasterBeagle #PeanutsInsiders #PeanutsAmbassador

I received this product to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

Snoopy-Easter-Eggs

The snow has finally all melted here in Chicago and the grass is slowly regaining its green color. My kids ask everyday if its springtime yet and I feel like its just around the corner!

Spring is not just the season for daffodils and cherry blossoms but also the Easter Beagle! Yes I’m talking about that silly black and white dog also known as Snoopy. Back in 1968, Snoopy first appeared as “the Easter Bunny” with Charles Schulz giving the name “the Easter Beagle” to him three years later.

Here are some silly Easter facts:

  • In that first 1968 strip, Linus was the only one to witness “the Easter Bunny” dancing around the front yard and hiding eggs in the bushes—Lucy was too busy watching television to notice.
  • On Sunday, April 11, 1971, the Easter Beagle made his official comic-strip debut. Again, Linus was the first one to interact with him (although it’s Lucy who gets the Beagle kiss!).

  • As with the Great Pumpkin, Linus is often the Easter Beagle’s messenger in the comic strips, alerting the other characters to the upcoming appearance of the Easter Beagle.
  • During his April 2, 1972 appearance, the Easter Beagle delivers eggs to the members of the Peanuts gang…but discovers his basket is empty when he gets to Charlie Brown. This idea was adapted into the animated television special.
  • Fortunately, the following year, on April 22, 1973, Charlie Brown does receive an Easter egg—this time from the Easter Beagle’s assistant: Woodstock!
  • After two more Easter Beagle strips in 1975 and 1976, the character made his last appearance on April 7, 1985—when Sally got the Charlie Brown treatment.
  • Charles Schulz once said in an interview that the Easter Beagle was his favorite of all of Snoopy’s alter egos.
