Wit and wisdom every child needs
Snoopy and the whole Peanuts gang. Been a collector for 37 of my 40 years on this planet. I have so many - I can't count them. My childhood bedroom was professionally painted with comic strips (before it became the posh way to decorate a kidís room) and life-size drawings of the peanuts gang, especially snoopy who looked over the room from atop his dog house fighting off the red baron and ghosts in the night. Snoopy and his way of looking at the world around him and have counselled me through many life ventures. Today - he is the base for all my computer passwords when developing programming spreadsheets. To Snoopy and his faithful master Charlie Brown, may you live forever delivering the wit and wisdom every child needs.

Definitely the brains
I love Snoopy! Who else combines such round cuteness with gently biting wit and a historical mission? ("Curse you, Red Baron!") When I went 2,500 miles away to college, my stuffed Snoopy and Woodstock came with me. At my wedding, Snoopy wore a tuxedo and a tag that said "Best Beagle". I never understood why all the Peanuts were so hard on Charlie Brown, but I knew that in Snoopy, mean old Lucy had met her match! The beagle was definitely the brains of the whole outfit.

Positive, uplifting spirit
Snoopy is one of my favourite cartoon characters because he is sooooooo cute and he has this positive, uplifting spirit about him. He is not violent like other cartoon characters, still he is incomparably funny! I love him and his friends!

Think warm fuzzies
Think Snoopy. Think warm fuzzies. Snoopy engenders the most human emotions Ė affection and humour. We can relate to this little fellow and his quirky behaviour and he makes us feel good right through from his soft rounded body to his cheery optimism. You just canít help the feeling when you think about Snoopy - everybodyís friend and I think, a rather special Lovemark.

Activates warm and positive feelings in me
Snoopy appeals to both the child and the adult in me. His physiognomy (round shapes, big black nose) activates warm and positive feelings in me on a visceral level. Additionally, the humor and wit that Snoopy expresses in the Peanuts comic strip is very clever and recognizable, which activates a positive response on an intellectual level. Hence, Snoopy is both cute and smart. Even though he's just a beagle, he stands for everything that is good in people but never in a schmalzy or contrived way. And that's why I Love him.
