Overview
'Tis the season to be jolly, but Charlie Brown, feeling that the Christmas message is lost amid all the seasonal glitter, has the blues. Psychiatrist Lucy suggests a cure: get involved with the Christmas play! When our hapless hero sets out to find a Christmas tree to use as a stage prop, he unknowingly takes a step toward discovering the holiday’s true meaning. The scraggly tree that thrives on a "little love" and a timely assist from Linus make the message of the season come shining through. Winner of the Emmy® and Peabody awards, 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' is digitally mastered for excellent sound and picture quality.

Bonus Feature: It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown
Snow on the ground, goodwill in the air and—good grief!—another Christmas play to perform! Have fun (and keep an eye out for a sidewalk Santa that looks suspiciously like a bearded beagle!)
