  • News Story - You're a classic, Charlie Brown - Santa Rosa PressDemo 12/6/05

    Charlie Brown Fans, I thought you would like to read this story... From Charles Schultz's Hometown Newspaper...

    You're a classic, Charlie Brown
    Santa Rosa Press Democrat - 12/6/05

    You're a classic, Charlie Brown

    Schulz's holiday delight almost wasn't aired

    Tuesday, December 6, 2005

    THE PRESS DEMOCRAT


    And behold, in slunk a little round-faced kid toting a scraggly Christmas tree. And a dog danced and a little girl said all she wanted from Santa was real estate. Then a bunch of kids sang and a star appeared and, forever more, millions tuned in and hummed along.

    The late Charles M. Schulz was pleased with what he created in 1965 when "A Charlie Brown Christmas" first aired on TV. His collaborators weren't so sure.

    Executive producer Lee Mendelson and animator Bill Melendez were worried.

    "We thought we had ruined Charlie Brown. We thought the show was too slow. People were used to 'Tom and Jerry,' fast-action cartoons," Mendelson said. "But Sparky (Schulz) liked it. And one of the crew told us 'You're nuts to worry. This will run for 50 years.' "


    So far, so good. Tonight's airing on ABC marks the 40th anniversary of the animated "Peanuts" special. It has become as much a holiday classic as "It's a Wonderful Life" or "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." Some say it's even bigger.

    "This show has maybe another good century" to go, said Robert Thompson of Syracuse University's Center for the Study of Popular Television, who praises its "jaw-dropping Zen-like simplicity" and "E.B. White linguistic economy."
