Snoopy gets a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Author:

Snoopy now has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The lovable Beagle created by St. Paul-native Charles Schulz is the 2,563rd star on the walk, the Walk of Fame website says, and the first beagle to receive a star.

Snoopy's star was unveiled Monday next to Charles Schulz's star at 7021 Hollywood Blvd.

Craig Schulz, Charles Schulz's son and the writer and producer of the Peanuts' gang's latest film "The Peanuts Movie," accepted the star along with the dog.

Since being created in 1950, Snoopy has been in 45 TV specials, four motion pictures and one Saturday morning TV show, the Walk of Fame website notes.

This year marks the 65th anniversary of the debut of the "Peanuts" comic strip and the 50th anniversary of "A Charlie Brown Christmas". Last month, St. Paul paid tribute to Snoopy's creator, declaring Oct. 20 Charles M. Schulz Day in honor of the cartoonist.

"The Peanuts Movie" opens in theaters across the country Friday.

Getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame isn't a cakewalk. It includes being nominated and paying a $30,000 sponsorship fee – for details courtesy of Time, click here.
