Charlie Brown Christmas Special


Charlie Brown Christmas Special – A Charlie Brown Christmas aired last night on ABC.The 1965 animated tale of Charlie Brown’s search for the true meaning of Christmas originally aired on CBS from its debut in 1965 through 2000,but has been broadcast on ABC since 2001.Here is a brief presentation of the animated TV special:

On their way to join the rest of the Peanuts gang all skating on a frozen pond, Charlie Brown confides in Linus that even though Christmas is approaching he still feels depressed despite all the presents and cards and tree decorating.Ultimately, Charlie Brown visits Lucy in her psychiatric booth. On her advice, he gets involved in directing a school play about the Nativity. She also sympathizes with Charlie Brown about holiday depression, always getting “a lot of stupid toys” instead of what she really wants: real estate.
Charlie Brown now realizes he does not have to let commercialism ruin his Christmas. With a newly found sense of inspiration, he quietly picks up the little tree and walks out of the auditorium, intending to take the tree home to decorate and show the others it will work in the play.
Linus goes up to the little tree and gently props the drooping branch back to its upright position, ornament and all. After they add the remaining decorations from Snoopy’s doghouse to the tree, the kids then start humming the Christmas carol, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”. When Charlie Brown returns, he demands to know what’s going on. When he sees what they have done with the tree, he cannot believe his eyes, and the kids give him a rousing “Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!” before singing “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” as the end credits roll.
