20 Cartoon Dogs Who Stole Our Hearts Forever
National General Pictures
Whether you have watched their remarkable stories as a child, or with a child, these fictional dogs have taught us some of the most important lessons in life and love, changing our world for the better and stealing our hearts forever.
Here’s a list of the 20 most influential, memorable, and loveable dogs in the history of cartoons.
One of the most popular and best loved cartoon dogs ever, Snoopy is a childishly happy beagle who either indulges in his own fantasies or dances around in perfect joy. Wildly imaginative, Snoopy doesn’t need to know how to talk in order to pretend to be someone or something else. He withdraws to his fanciful world, and though he can never be what he imagined, the overly-confident beagle never stops trying.
Created by Charles M. Schulz, the super famous dog is Charlie Brown’s pet dog in the comic strip Peanuts, the most popular and influential comic strip of all time. Due to its unprecedented fame, Snoopy has received all sorts of honors: a United States Air Force B-58 Hustler bomb, a special NASA honor, an Apollo lunar module, three airships, a remotely operated underwater vehicle and a 280-degree tributary loop in Vietnam’s Mekong River were all named after him. Impressive, right?
