As incredible as it seems, CBS head man James Aubrey originally vetoed his network's presentation of the animated A Charlie Brown Christmas on the grounds that Charles M.

Overview

As incredible as it seems, CBS head man James Aubrey originally vetoed his network's presentation of the animated A Charlie Brown Christmas on the grounds that Charles M. Schultz's round-headed protagonist was a "loser" who wouldn't attract an audience! The story proposes that Charlie Brown is convinced that the true meaning of Christmas has been forgotten by his Peanuts friends, not to mention the rest of the world. "Psychiatrist" Lucy advises Charlie Brown to get into the holiday spirit by directing the kids' upcoming Christmas play. Despite his utter lack of control over his cast, Charlie Brown takes his job seriously, even setting out to find a genuine Christmas tree to decorate the set instead of the usual aluminum job. But Charlie Brown's tree is a scrawny, pathetic thing, and all seems lost. That is, until the rest of the Peanuts gang decide to pitch in and decorate the woebegone tree. An instant hit when first telecast December 9, 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas has been rebroadcast virtually every year since. It was produced by Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez, the latter providing the squeals and growls of Charlie Brown's hyper-intelligent dog, Snoopy.

    I Love Peanuts!

    I am a HUGE Charlie Brown fan. This is one of the best box sets for Charlie Brown. I have watched Charlie Brown ever since I was 3 or 4 and still love it. (I am 10 right now) I recommend this for people ages 3-100. It is wonderful to watch.

    The Ultimate Holiday Season Kids Gift

    Talk about seasonal gifts! From September School Elections to Halloween to Valentine's day, with everything in between, this box is a holiday all in itself. With every single Peanuts TV Special, I can't wait to watch them with my kids. It will be like sharing my childhood with them! Good Grief, why didn't Barnes & Noble sell this sooner!?
