Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Charles Schulz

The most influential cartoonist in history, Charles Schulz, is best known for creating the Peanuts comic strip, featuring Snoopy, Charlie Brown and others. In more than 50 years he drew more than 17,000 Peanuts strips, producing more than $1 billion every year. NASA named the Apollo 10 command module Charlie Brown and the lunar module Snoopy. There is a Camp Snoopy at Knott’s Berry Farm, a Jean and Charles Schulz Information Center at Sonoma State University and they named their county airport Charles Schulz Sonoma County Airport. Their logo has Snoopy in goggles and scarf taking off from the top of a red doghouse. You have probably seen the giant Snoopy balloon in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. And of course, no holiday would be complete without “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
