Peanuts—detail April 30, 1968

(Santa Rosa, CA) Snoopy’s most famous road trips will be revisited in Hit the Road, Snoopy!, the newest exhibition at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California from November 30, 2011 to April 2, 2012.  Fifty six original Peanuts strips capture that determined beagle and his numerous travels—including striking out for a visit with Spike in Needles, California; walking south with Woodstock during the migration season; and his ill-fated travels to the Grenoble Olympics in France.

Along with the exhibition, the full-length animated feature, Snoopy, Come Home!, will run concurrently with this exhibition in the Museum’s Theater.

If you would like any of the images from Hit the Road, Snoopy! to print in a publication, contact Gina Huntsinger at or (707) 284-1268.
