Just dug up my copy of this. After many years of collecting I believe I may have all of these fawcett paperback collections. This one was a collection of mid-50's strips. Snoopy still had long ears. Eventually his whole body, including his ears, got smaller. I always preferred the earlier, more playful, long eared snoopy, although I believe I'm in the minority. I wasn't overly fond of his later smugness.

How could you not love the Snoopy dance? Way back, in the '60s and '70s, Snoopy would dance often. In Schulz's later years, as I recall, the Snoopy dance was rare. But it always gave me a little joy.

Force of habit, Bill--you ascribe this book to Gold Medal, when the Peanuts collections were all Crest offers...we are crestfallen to not have them about any longer, though the Fantagraphics collections are handsome...

Thanks for the correction, Todd. Force of habit is a bad thing.
