And lookit this, ABC isn’t done with the animated specials! In the midst of the 8-9 hour that features Prep & Landing, you’ve got perhaps the most popular animated holiday classic of them all: A Charlie Brown Christmas. December 7th is a popular one, huh! The special, featuring the lovable creations of Charles M. Schulz, is a digitally-remastered version of the classic 1965 special, with Charlie Brown upset over the materialism on the holiday, turning to Lucy, Linus, Snoopy and the gang for meaning in the Christmas pageant.
“Sure Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about…”
The cast includes Peter Robbins as Charlie Brown, Christopher Shea as Linus, Tracy Stratford as Lucy, Chris Doran as Schroeder, and Sally Dryer as Violet. Produced by Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez, written by Charles M. Schulz, and given musical composition by Vince Guaraldi.
