A Charlie Brown Christmas

PBS | 7:30 pm

When Charlie Brown complains about the materialism he sees around him during the holidays, Lucy suggests he direct the Christmas pageant. He accepts, but it proves to be a frustrating struggle. When his attempt to restore the proper spirit with a forlorn little fir tree fails, he needs Linus' help to learn the real meaning of Christmas in this charming animated classic — which is now one year short of its 50th anniversary. The memorable music score is by Vince Guaraldi.
