Snoopy’s Ringing for Charity

Hallmark’s Spotlight on Snoopy ornament series rarely focuses on Christmas.  Yes, there are the exceptions, but most of the time, we get Snoopy involved in some career or hobby, many of them inspired by things he’s done in the Peanuts comic strip over the years.  We get a rare Christmas themed entry in Bell Ringer Snoopy, the newest addition to the series.

As the name says, Snoopy is taking a turn as a Salvation Army bell ringer.  At least it’s my assumption that he’s working for the Salvation Army.  We don’t see the collection bucket, but we do see Snoopy with a bell in his right hand.  He’s dressed like Santa, complete with a red hat and coat and a fake white beard.  Woodstock is doing his part as well.  No, he’s not ringing a bell.  He has a little tuba he’s blowing.  He’s dressed as an elf with a green hat and coat with red trim.

Since this ties directly to Christmas, this one is extra fun.  Plus, it looks great.  Snoopy and Woodstock are festive, and both are obviously in the middle of ringing the bell and blowing the trombone.

Snoopy and Woodstock are standing in just enough white snow to provide a nice base.  You can set this ornament out to be displayed if you’d like.  And you’ll find the 21 in a Christmas tree series marker on the bottom as well.  This series is getting to be one of Hallmark’s longer running series.

Or, you can choose to hang the ornament on your tree.  The ring is attached to Snoopy’s hat, and you’ll find that the ornament tips slightly to the right, but that should be easy enough to hide with tree branches.

It’s wonderful to see this series still coming up with great ideas for Snoopy and Woodstock.  Collectors will be mostly delighted with Bell Ringer Snoopy.

Don't miss the rest of the Spotlight on Snoopy series.
