The Peanuts gang gets play every day through syndication in 2,400 newspapers around the world. But the real money comes from licensing, a hefty piece of which goes to the Schulz estate.

This summer, China introduced a set of stamps featuring Snoopy in different locations throughout the country.

Some interesting folk on this list.
