A Charlie Brown Christmas
A Charlie Brown Christmas is a 1965 animated television special based on the comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz.
Christmastime is here. Happiness and cheer. And for Peanuts fans everywhere, it just wouldn't be Christmas without this classic holiday delight. Christmas lights may be twinkling red and green, but Charlie Brown has the Yuletide blues. To get in the holiday spirit, he takes Lucy's advice and directs the Christmas play. And what's a Christmas play without a Christmas tree? But everyone makes fun of the short, spindly nevergreen Charlie Brown brings back - until the real meaning of Christmas works its magic once again.
Why it Rocks
- Simplistic and sweet-natured story.
- Decent animation.
- Beautiful music. Mostly notably, Christmastime is Here.
- Funny and hilarious moments.
- The scene where Linus explains the true meaning of Christmas is pretty heartwarming and memorable.
- The tree in the movie became a symbol of minimalist Christmas decorating.
- The ending was pretty heartwarming.
- One of those rare times where Charlie Brown gets a happy ending.
- Kicked off the start of the Peanuts specials.
The Only Bad Quality
- Everyone (Except Linus) was very unlikable in the scene where they made fun of Charlie Brown and his Christmas tree.
