Following the 50th Anniversary Special, ABC will air “A Charlie Brown Christmas”...

“A Charlie Brown Christmas” – Celebrate the joy of the holidays with the classic animated Christmas-themed PEANUTS special, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” created by the late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz. In the digitally re-mastered 1965 special, Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism that he sees everywhere during the Christmas season. Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant and Charlie Brown accepts, but it proves to be a frustrating struggle. When an attempt to restore the proper spirit with a forlorn little fir Christmas tree fails, Charlie Brown needs Linus’ help to learn what the real meaning of Christmas is. (9:00-10:00 p.m.  eastern standard time)

  1. When I was growing up, the Charlie Brown Christmas special was the most anticipated show of the year, at least for me it was. 46 years later and I am still not tired of it. I think it's even more fun to watch it with my children.
