SNOOPY—THE MASCOT OF THE APOLLO X LM CREW—SIGNED
Snoopy Astronaut doll, produced in China by Determined Distributions of San Francisco for United Feature Syndicate, 1969. Made from plastic and textile, 10 inches tall. With original red and blue display box.

INSCRIBED and SIGNED by TOM STAFFORD: "Snoopy, LM-4 Call Sign, Tom Stafford, Apollo X Cdr, May 69" on the back of Snoopy's helmet.

The Peanuts comic strip character Snoopy in a space suit and helmet. Snoopy was adopted by NASA with the full blessing of creator Charles Shultz as the Manned Flight Awareness (MFA) Program mascot. The program used Snoopy as a "spokesperson" to emphasize such topics as flight safety and good quality control during spacecraft manufacturing.

The Apollo X LM crew of Stafford and Cernan named their Lunar Module Snoopy partly to bring greater recognition to the MFA program. Apollo X Command Module Pilot John Young named his spacecraft Charlie Brown.
