Over 40 countries license the Peanuts gang generating more than two billion dollars annually. Charles Shultz, the creator of Peanuts had pursued a career in cartooning after serving in WWII. He worked for the St. Paul Pioneer Press drawing a weekly comic strip and also for the Saturday Evening Post before he created Peanuts. On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts Gang debuted in seven newspapers nationally.
By 1965 Schulz was honored two times with the Reuben Award by the National Cartoonists Society. In 1999 when Schulz retired Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts characters were syndicated in more than 2,600 newspapers worldwide.
A half a decade after Peanuts was first printed as a comic strip was an international success with television specials and Snoopy was already an Internet search keyword of note worthy value. The peanuts characters adorned apparel including neckties and every other product imaginable became an instant success.
Peanuts became a worldwide phenomenon in part thanks to the cute beagle affectionately called Snoopy who became the most recognized canine on the planet. His friend Charlie Brown who was forever struck with bad luck and grief made a pair not unlike Hope and Crosby, Laurel and Hardy or even like someone everyone knew and his pet or vis-a-versa. Everyone could identify with Charlie Brown and Snoopy and that was what has made Peanuts cartoons so lovable. In 2000 Shortly after his death and the same day of the final Peanuts Sunday cartoon strip appeared the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center opened in Santa Rosa California. That site has become the archive of all of Schulz’s not unlike the foundations for master artists like Monet, or Van Gogh.
On April 23, 2010 Peanuts was sold for $175 Million Dollars 60 years after its creation. Peanuts is worth over two billion dollars a year in licensed merchandise. The goodwill that Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts characters offer will only grow bigger. Those Peanuts neckties are licensed collector items and many of our Snoopy ties are no longer made.
