The ABC Television Network will celebrate the joy of the holidays with the the full, uncut version of the holiday Peanuts special “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” created by late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, tonight at 8 p.m. The hour will also include “Prep & Landing: Operation Secret Santa,” the seven-minute animated short featuring the voice of Betty White as Mrs. Claus.

In the digitally-remastered 1965 special, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” 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.

What a truly classic television show that keeps getting shown year after year. Some truly great family television with all the unfortunate trash we have to put up with on a nightly basis. Shame that is can’t be that way all year

That’s right…and bring back the Three Stooges/Amos and Andy/Pete and Gladys/The Hathaways shows too.
That’s right. It ain’t the 1950’s no more…but at least that time era had class and didn’t ride on the shoulders of others hard work, just to turn it around into a “Laugh Track Show” with 5 minutes of show…and 7 minutes of commercials!

Hey Guest 3130, you are right, it isn’t 1950, but that doesn’t mean some of us don’t appreciate good quality TV. Better than the trash that is on these days. If you don’t know how to appreciate good tv, then don’t watch it, watch what you want to, just give it up when some of us want to watch it.

You are correct!
Do as I do when the Nielsen Ratings group sends me the 2 bucks by Snail Mail. Shred the survey…and use the cash for gas in the car :-)

Amos & Andy, the NAACP would be up in arms.

Casey Jones, with Alan Hale, Jr, probably the railway union would want something.

Howdy Doodey — wood carvers would be in arms.

Sgt Bilko, Bald People of America or BPA would be up in arms along with weight watchers.

How about Soupy Sales with his pie in the face?

How about Paul Winchell with Jerry Mahoney & Nucklehead Smith? Every program ended with a lesson for youngsters.

I could go on. But there are 4 to start with.

3 Stooges are on already.

“Amos & Andy, the NAACP would be up in arms”….
Well…on the flip side of that scenario…there is Archie Bunker too. :-)
