On This Date in TWISTED-HISTORY.com! in 1952, Charles Schultz’s cartoon about a little boy and his Walter Mitty-ish dog debuted in Sunday papers across the United States. The Soviet Union immediately banned it and claimed that it was stolen from them and ‘their’ cartoon “Nemnogo Pryshch” which was about a little boy and his Communist Party dog constantly standing in line waiting to either buy vodka, white bread or toilet paper. The little boy “Ivan” was always hoping it would be toilet paper and the dog, “Boris” would say, “Yes, toilet paper. Good Russian toilet paper. Nothing like that effeminate soft paper that those capitalistic American pig consumers buy. Damn them.”
