A Charlie Brown Christmas was originally telecast in December 1965 and was an instant hit with audiences who connected with Peanuts creator Charles M. Schultz's cast of characters – especially with its rounded-headed hero Charlie Brown, his woefully scrawny Christmas tree, and his typewriter-wielding dog Snoopy. Nearly given the ax by CBS studios at the time of its release, this beloved holiday classic about the commercialization of the season still resonates with both children and adults of every generation. The musical score for A Charlie Brown Christmas, composed by the late Vince Guaraldi, is every bit as touching as the story and includes the hugely popular hit "Linus and Lucy". His gentle jazz riffs established musical trademarks will certainly prompt smiles of recognition.
