Charles Schulz created Snoopy’s World War I flying ace comic strip on October 10, 1965. It displayed the classic beagle character in one of his alter-egos—the Flying Ace—in pursuit of the Red Barron on his aircraft-imagined doghouse. Many people credit this World War I tribute to Schulz’ service as a sergeant in the United States Army stationed in Europe during World War II and his desire to create adventure comics.
