It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown - Peanuts Easter Prize-Pack Giveaway! #EasterBeagle

Easter is right around the corner, and that means if you have little ones in your house – the Easter Bunny will be paying you a visit! Of course, Easter is another one of those holidays that gets us all a little nostalgic – and whenever I think of the Easter Bunny, I also think of the Easter Beagle and Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang. Snoopy is practically a member of the family around here – so it wouldn’t be a holiday in our home without a Peanuts theme!

Every spring Snoopy came hopping down the bunny trail (or Beagle trail) with big floppy ears and a basket full of goodies on the holiday special, It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown. And, every year after that it became a family tradition in our house to gather around the television and watch the adorable Easter Beagle. I like to say that we are watching the holiday special for the kids – but I secretly enjoy it just as much as they do!

It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown - Peanuts Easter Prize-Pack Giveaway! #EasterBeagleBefore the special began airing on television, Snoopy actually made his debut as the Easter Beagle back in 1968 in Charles Schulz iconic comic strip. The Easter Beagle would make his rounds and hand deliver eggs to the whole gang – sadly he ran out of eggs before he made it to Charlie Brown in the 1972 comic strip. The next year Charlie Brown did receive an egg, Snoopy’s assistant Woodstock hand-delivered it.

And, like the theme in many other Peanuts holiday specials – there was one member of the gang who had witnessed the magical character, and everyone else doubted the Easter Beagle’s existence. In the comic strip, Linus was lucky enough to witness the Easter Beagle, and his pals were cynical. In our family, we’ve never had any doubters. Who would want to question a magical bunny that leaves us baskets full of treats and toys in the middle of the night?

It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown had the whole gang in the holiday special – Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Sally, and Peppermint Patty.

In our house we dye Easter eggs the night before the big magical bunny comes to leave us sweet treats. We usually wind up making a huge mess, and they never turn out as fancy as the pictures of Easter eggs on Pinterest that we try to duplicate, but we are always much more successful than Peppermint Patty. Who could forget Patty’s hilarious attempts at making Easter eggs, and trying to roast them like marshmallows?! And, how cute was Linus when he was sounding the alarm to let the Peanuts gang know that the Easter Beagle was near!
