You’ve come a long way, Snoopy!
The world’s most famous beagle was honored with the 2,563rd star on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles Monday (Nov. 2), just four days before his feature film, “The Peanuts Movie,” hits theaters.
Snoopy’s star is located at 7021 on the iconic boulevard, near Sycamore Avenue, purposely located right next to “Peanuts” creator Charles M. Schulz’s star.
Schulz’s son Craig, a writer-producer of “The Peanuts Movie,” and Paul Feig, a producer of the film, were present for the ceremony, along with a life-sized version of the beloved dog.
“No one is more deserving than Snoopy to have a star on the Walk of Fame next my dad’s, and my dad would be so honored to have all you folks here to come out to wish Snoopy the best,” Craig said at the star’s unveiling ceremony. “Snoopy, you deserve it. I’m gonna give you a dog bone when we get home.”
WIth this honor, Snoopy joins the high ranks of famous Hollywood dogs alongside Lassie and Rin Tin Tin, plus other iconic animal characters such as Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck and Winnie-the Pooh.
“The Peanuts Movie” opens nationwide on Friday, Nov. 6.
