From the Peanuts comic strip, the beagle Snoopy in a space suit and helmet. Peanuts creator Charles Schulz gave his full blessing to NASA for Snoopy to be adopted as the mascot for the Manned Flight Awareness (MFA) Program. MFA 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 Commander Tom Stafford and Gene Cernan named their Lunar Module Snoopy partly to bring greater recognition to the MFA program. In the same spirit, Apollo X Command Module Pilot John Young named his spacecraft Charlie Brown.
