Peace, Love and Woodstock
Early on, birds appeared in Peanuts, but a very special bird arrived in the later 1960s, capturing hearts with his unique personality and eccentric ways. Named for the 1969 music festival in rural New York, Woodstock may be the smallest Peanuts character, but he has a huge presence. From typing up Snoopy’s correspondence to helping him lead the Beagle Scouts, his devotion to Snoopy became a foundation of the strip. In celebration of the music festival’s 50th anniversary, take a trip through the life of Woodstock—from namesake to nest—and see why Woodstock is the friend everyone wishes they had. Fri.-Sun.
