Snoopy and Woodstock


Percy's Fast Food Toy Story



Did you know?

Snoopy began befriending birds way back in the early 1960s. When Snoopy started using his doghouse for various purposes: a rest stop during migrations, a nesting site, a community hall, or a place to play cards. One of these birds named, Woodstock, attached himself to Snoopy and assumed the role of Snoopy's sidekick and assistant. It was in April 4, 1967, Peanuts daily comic strip, started featuring a single bird flew in after a long flight while Snoopy was lying on top of his dog house. He chose Snoopy's nose as a good place to rest, and Snoopy uncharacteristically accepted this intrusion. Over the next two days, Charles Schulz began to establish character traits for Snoopy's new friend by revealing that he could talk (more accurately that he could complain, in the form of repetitive sounds in word form—"gripe, gripe, gripe, gripe", "complain, complain, ..."), that, unlike normal birds, he didn't like to fly south every winter, and that his flying skills were not quite up to snuff. By the end of this four-strip sequence, Snoopy, in character as the World War I Flying Ace, learns that the bird is his new mechanic — Woodstock's first supporting role.

Percy's Fast Food Toy Story



Did  you know?

Building Blocks interlocking stud and tube system similar to Lego blocks. Cobi is a Polish toy company with its headquarters in Warsaw, Poland. Cobi blocks are sold primarily in Poland and central Europe. The building blocks don't use very many special pieces and are reminiscent of older Lego sets from the 70s and 80s. The mini figures look similar to Lego figures, except most figures have a head with a nose sticking out. The most notable distinction from Lego is that Cobi has four military and para-military themes, with more than two thirds of the sets belonging to one of these four themes. Their WW2-themed toys have been controversial, with at least one Swedish retailer refusing to stock them; the company responded to the criticism by saying they are a way for children to learn about Europe's history.

Did you know?

Jollibee's humble beginning was a simple Ice cream parlor. In 1975, Tony Tan Caktiong and his family opened a Magnolia Ice Cream parlor in Cubao, Quezon City. In 1978, he and his siblings engaged the services of a management consultant, Manuel C. Lumba, who shifted the business focus from ice cream to hot dogs after his studies showed a much larger market waiting to be served. Lumba was Tan's last business and management mentor. Jollibee experienced rapid growth. It was able to withstand the entry of McDonald's in the Philippines in 1981 by focusing on the specific tastes of the Filipino market, which differed from the American fast food company.
