Here’s “Beau” Snoopy Pajama Bag of the Foreign Legion marching across the desert. Find out where to find this Snoopy Foreign Legionnaire Pajama Bag on the full Patreon article.
What I Love – There’s not much to collect when it comes to Snoopy French Foreign Legionnaire items. There’s this, the Simon Simple pinback button, and a Kaboom comic book. If there’s more, I can’t remember and neither did the Google image search. You know me, I love something peculiar to add to a collection. While not too difficult to find this 1969 Pajama bag by Simon Simple, it will certainly be a stand-out from the 1000’s of Flying Aces and Joe Cools you can collect.
I wonder where Schulz got the inspiration to do a Snoopy French Foreign Legionnaire. He’s obviously evoking the movie/book Beau Geste in this comic strip series. Snoopy first appeared wearing a foreign legionnaire hat in August 1965, a full year before the 1966 Beau Geste movie would be released. Perhaps both were in response to increased interest in the Foreign Legion? I don’t know, I wasn’t around then. If anyone has thoughts on this, let me know.
