May 12, 1953: Snoopy's duplex


This strip is a variant of those previous sight-gag strips in which Snoopy's house had a TV antenna and where he lived in a hotel.

It's funny, but it also slowly pushes the edge on what is seen as "normal" in the Peanuts world. Snoopy's growth into his vibrant later personality is gradual, the change accomplished slowly through strips like this.


  1. I think this strip reinforces the theory that Snoopy was just a stray mutt in town before Charlie Brown took over as his owner.
