Its bound to be a white Christmas with this classic! From creator Charles M. Shultz and producer Bill Melendez, its 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 ... its amazing what a little love can do. A Charlie Brown Christmas originally aired on television on December 9th, 1965.
