‘Charlie Brown Christmas’ leads holiday TV

(Posted November 29, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

LOS ANGELES - Good grief, network executives said when they first saw Charles Schulz’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”

“They thought it was too slow,” executive producer Lee Mendelson recalls being told by the powers-that-were at CBS in 1965.

But the special was an instant hit with critics and audiences. Forty years later, its ruminations on the spirit of Christmas, backed by a lilting jazz score by Vince Guaraldi, remain fresh and affecting.

"A Charlie Brown Christmas, will air on ABC Dec. 6 and Dec. 16 to commemorate the classic animated cartoon's 40th anniversary.
