The United States Postal Service has revealed the designs of their seasonal stamps which feature characters from Charles Schulz’s popular comic strip Peanuts, including Charlie Brown and Snoopy.

Set to be issued on 1 October at the Charles M. Schultz Museum and Research Center in California, the stamp set features ten still frames from A Charlie Brown Christmas, the animated special broadcast in the USA on 9 December, 1965.

A USPS spokesperson said:

‘Over the years, watching the beautifully understated ode to the holiday season has become an annual tradition. The program now airs every year on ABC.’

Snoopy the dog appeared on a US stamp of his own in May 2001, while the Peanuts characters have also been honoured on stamps from countries including Portugal, Japan and Gibraltar.
