Cartoonist Charles M. Schulz created a comic strip that appeared in newspapers for fifty years. Readers identified with Schulz's pint-sized characters, who became part of modern American culture. In the 1960s, the beagle featured on the stamp climbed on top of his dog house and into his own fantasy. He became a World War I ace pilot pursuing the infamous enemy flyer, the Red Baron.
