Charles Schultz introduced the world to Snoopy and his friends in 1950. Of course the main character is the owner of this funny beagle, Charlie Brown but often times good old Snoopy would steal the show. To be precise: on October 2, 1950 this now famous comic strip made its debut in 9 American newspapers as a daily feature in the funny papers. Snoopy first appeared on October 4, 1950 which was the third strip in the papers. Many of the characters that became main characters did not start to appear until 1951. There was a Patty in the very first strip for instance, but it was not Peppermint Patty until 1966. Similarly, Lucy Van Pelt did not make her first appearance until 1952.
