Have a great Easter from Peanuts! Win a Easter Beagle Peanuts prize pack! #Giveaway‪ #‎EasterBeagle‬






Spring is just around the corner, which means we’ll soon be treated to the appearance of daffodils, cherry blossoms—and the Easter Beagle! Yes, our favorite chameleon beagle will be happily hopping from yard to yard, beagle-ears flapping, delivering brightly colored Easter eggs (and a beagle kiss or two) from his Easter basket. As a 2016 Peanuts Ambassador I have some fun Peanuts Easter items to share with you these will make any Peanuts fan happy. 

Sure the Peanuts Easter merchandise is terrific, but I have something even cooler to share with you…. Here are some fun facts about the history of the Easter Beagle*:   Snoopy first appeared as “the Easter Bunny” on April 14, 1968, but Charles Schulz did not give the character the name “the Easter Beagle” until three years later. 

In that first 1968 strip, Linus was the only one to witness “the Easter Bunny” dancing around the front yard and hiding eggs in the bushes—Lucy was too busy watching television to notice. On Sunday, April 11, 1971, the Easter Beagle made his official comic-strip debut. Again, Linus was the first one to interact with him (although it’s Lucy who gets the Beagle kiss!).  Here is one of my favorite cool facts, Charles Schulz once said in an interview that the Easter Beagle was his favorite of all of Snoopy's alter egos.

A TV Star Is Born, the Easter Beagle made his television debut on April 9, 1974, when CBS first aired It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown. This was the 12th animated special to be based on the Peanuts comic strip, and the fourth to be associated with a holiday (the others are A Charlie Brown Christmas, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, and A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving). Much of the special concerns Peppermint Patty’s disastrous (and hilarious) attempts to make Easter eggs—she tries roasting them, toasting them, and putting them in a waffle maker before trying to boil them (and making egg soup!). 

Linus sounds the alert, letting everyone know that the Easter Beagle is coming. Sally, however, is a little suspicious, since the last time she believed Linus’s reports on a famous holiday character, she missed all the trick or treating while waiting with Linus in a pumpkin patch for the non-arrival of the Great Pumpkin. This year, It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown will air on ABC. (Date and time to be announced.)
              
Show your love to the special someone, with some Peanuts style! Every year, Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang can be found on hundreds of different Easter gifts, including cards, plush, books, candy and much more.  
What Did the Easter Beagle Bring You? This year, the Easter Beagle will have a variety of goodies for you in his overflowing Easter basket! The generous folks at Peanuts are giving one of Susan’s Disney Family readers a chance to win a great Peanuts prize pack including: An irresistible Easter Beagle porch greeter, delivering happiness to every household.
