It's time for a happy dance! Learn how to draw Snoopy from Peanuts, dancing, with the help of this easy cartoon drawing tutorial.

Snoopy's original artist described him this way: "He can win or lose, be a disaster, a hero, or anything, and yet it all works out. I like the fact that when he's in real trouble, he can retreat into a fantasy." In other words, Snoopy is a bit like you and me.

Did you know? Snoopy made his first comic appearance in 1950. Since then, he's often been seen in the middle of a "happy dance." Why does Snoopy dance for joy? Charlie Brown explained, "Some days, Snoopy loves life so much he can't express it." So he dances!

You don't need your dancing shoes to draw Snoopy at his finest. All you need is a pencil and a sheet of paper.
