Snoopy the Flying Ace
Back in my more youthful days when I would read Snoopy comics, I had no clue about either Carleton Place or Roy Brown.
Now that I do know more, I observe that Snoopy was dressed authentically for battle, flew the correct Sopwith Camel, and chased the Baron in his Fokker (if you'll pardon my German).
The hound had many adventures with the Baron and with varying degrees of success ... such as this comic strip.
This flying ace adventures also made it to television such as in this Halloween special, which I can only link and not embed. Strange that.
Our hero also showed up at Christmas
And don't forget the song, which I did forget until I was reminded. This version is by the Irish Rovers.
So, there ya go with a little trip down memory lane for vintage people such as I. I think I like being called vintage; there are worse names for this stage of life, I think you must admit.
