"A Charlie Brown Christmas"

I LOVE Peanuts, and being that t'was the holidays, I went and recently bought "A Charlie Brown Christmas." I believe I have seen it when I was very young, but I don't remember much, so it was like seeing it for the first time. It is beyond amazing. Having been first aired in 1965, it still holds up as an example of masterful story telling and character development. Hats off to our man Schulz, animator/director/former Disney artist Bill Melendez and the melodious jazzy genius of Vince Guaraldi.

"I know nobody likes me. Why do we have to have a holiday season to emphasize it?" -Charlie Brown

Charlie Brown flips out upon realizing his own baby sister has succumbed to the commercialization of Christmas.
