“A Charlie Brown Christmas” first aired on the small screen on Dec. 9, 1965. Fifty years later, it’s still regularly broadcast and remains a beloved holiday program.
The animated special, which features Snoopy and the other timeless characters from Charles Schultz’s “Peanuts” comic strip, was brought to life by the animation of Bill Melendez and the jazz music of the Vince Guaraldi Trio. Despite the passing of five decades, the special remains an important holiday viewing tradition for millions of Americans who each December join Charlie Brown on his quest to find the true meaning of Christmas.
