These Snoopy Skate Decks Celebrate 50 Years Since Apollo 11

In light of Apollo 11’s groundbreaking missions in the late 1960s, era-specific companies were chomping at the bit to capitalize on NASA’s impending trip to the moon. Interestingly enough, Charles M. Schulz’s long-running American comic strip, “Peanuts,” was admitted for use by the space-faring agency — with the series’ heroic mutt, Snoopy, taking the helm of its spaceflight safety campaign. Now, to honor the mission’s 50th anniversary, The Skateroom has partnered with Peanuts’ accessory-loving canine for a space-themed deck collection.

Prior to the mission’s success in the latter half of the ‘60s, Snoopy’s likeness was used in everything from promotional posters, fashion pieces, and pins, all the way to specialized press releases fostered by the expeditionary space agency. To pay homage to NASA’s historic 1969 space mission, The Skateroom and Peanuts ‘Apollo’ Collection has adorned three Canadian maple wood decks in different lunar scenes from the series. The first illustration places our heroin on the surface of the satellite, dressed from head to toe in blue, space-faring garb, while the others — a subtle depiction of the canine embarking on his first mission amidst a black and blue backdrop (bag in tow), and a preparatory portrait of the beloved character as he states that “All Systems Are Go!” — round out the iconic collection. Head to Skateroom’s website to grab your own commemorative art piece for $165.
