In Charles Schultz' Peanuts comic strip, the Red Baron (based on the real World War I fighter pilot) was a main antagonist of Snoopy's imaginary adventures. First introduced in October 1965, the feud between Snoopy and the Red Baron was popular with audiences and was featured in comics, TV specials, and inspired the song “Snoopy vs. the Red Baron” by The Royal Guardsmen in 1966. The Red Baron's initial popularity is from the 1960s, which coincided with large scale advertising of Snoopy on cards, figurines, NASA gear, and buttons.
