Sunday, January 4, 1953: The Cookie-Hound


Snoopy at his cutest harasses the hapless Linus for his cookies. Eating a whole box of the things probably isn't very good for either of them.

Question for you. If Linus weren't on the scene yet, would it be suitable to use this same strip, all other things being equal, with Lucy when she was an infant? Even with her put-upon early personality, it doesn't quite seem like it would be a suitable strip for her, which indicates that the characters' do have a developed personality at this point.

  1. I particularly like Snoopy's indignant look in panel 6. The whole strip underscores how dog-like Snoopy still is at this point, as it's a scene that any dog owner can relate to.
