A Charlie Brown Christmas

Charlie Brown1

On December 9, 1965, millions of Americans learned what Christmas is all about. That evening, A Charlie Brown Christmas, the first animated special featuring characters from Charles Schulz’s beloved comic strip Peanuts, aired on CBS. Over the years, watching the understated ode to the holiday season has become an annual tradition for many families. The program now airs every year on ABC.

This booklet of 20 stamps features 10 still frames from A Charlie Brown Christmas (two of each design). They include: Charlie Brown holding the sapling that eventually becomes his Christmas tree, Charlie Brown and Pigpen with a snowman, Snoopy and children ice skating, the cast of the program gathering around the Christmas tree, Linus kneeling by the sparsely decorated Christmas tree, Charlie Brown checking his mailbox for a Christmas card, Charlie Brown and Linus leaning on a snowy brick wall, Charlie Brown and Linus standing by the tree, a frustrated Charlie Brown standing in front of Snoopy’s doghouse, and Charlie Brown decorating the tree in front of the prize-winning lights display on Snoopy’s doghouse.

The stamp is now available for purchase at usps.com/stamps, the Postal Store, at 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724) and at Post Offices nationwide.
