Cartoonist Charles M. Schultz debuted his Peanuts comic strip way back in 1950, and by 1965 the strip had become so popular it spawned the first of a long series of TV specials, including A Charlie Brown Christmas and, in 1967, the musical stage play You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. When Schultz died in 2000 so did the beloved comic strip that centered on a bungling beagle dog named Snoopy - the final original strip appeared on the day of Schultz’s passing as a tribute to his great career.
Christmas With The Gang
A Charlie Brown Christmas finds Charlie Brown unhappy that it's Christmastime again. He doesn't think anybody likes him, especially since he hasn’t received a single Christmas card. Lucy tries to cheer him up by getting him involved in the annual Christmas play by asking him to direct it. Naturally, Charlie Brown takes his newfound responsibility way too seriously, and everybody thinks the play is going to be a complete failure.
Lucy thinks the play needs a modern spirit of Christmas and sends Charlie Brown out for an aluminum Christmas tree, but our hero resists and instead buys a small real one. The result is a lasting lesson about the true meaning of Christmas.
