It’s Christmas, Charlie Brown

Filed under: Uncategorized — Carly J Hallman @ 4:43 pm

A pathetic tree. A lovable loser named Charlie. Not the ingredients for a spectacular Christmas, except maybe at Bukowski’s house. Yet, Charles Schultz not only made this bizarre pairing work, but made it into a Christmas classic. A Charlie Brown Christmas first aired in 1965 on CBS, where it aired every year since until 2000. Since 2001, ABC has aired the special at least twice per Christmas season.

This year, A Charlie Brown Christmas will air on Tuesday, December 8 at 7 p.m. Central Time.

To tide you over until then, here’s a classic scene set to one of Vince Guaraldi’s timeless compositions.

  2. Always did love Charlie Brown.

    I knew him after he grew up, and posted about him on my blog today. The boy overcame rejection in a big way.
