Peanuts: a Charlie Brown Christmas

Original Broadcast Date: December 9, 1965

It's bound to be a white Christmas with this classic!

From creator Charles M. Shulz and producer Bill Melendez, it's A Charlie Brown Christmas. Not only does this timeless special have the distinction of warming hearts young and old, but it has won both an Emmy and a Peabody Award.

Whether you are seeing this holiday masterpiece for the first time or the first time in years, you have doubtless heard of that ol' blockhead Charlie Brown and the little tree that could. Filled with mythology as the gang tries to put on a holiday play, kids big and small will end up with a pretty decent dance party, a lesson for the ages and some good old-fashioned fun.

As for the tree—it's amazing what a little love can do when the real meaning of Christmas works its magic once again.
