A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING is Ratings Winner for ABC
ABC's airing of the Peanut's classic A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING proved to be a ratings winner for the network, holding up strongly against CBS' Survivor and Fox's The X-Factor last night. The 39-year-old animated special delivered its biggest audience in four years - 8.1 million viewers and a 2.2 rating in the adult demo, up 22 percent from last year.
Created by late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz in 1973 "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," features Charlie Brown as he attempts to do something special for the gang. However the dinner he arranges is a disaster when the caterers, Snoopy and Woodstock, prepare toast and popcorn as the main dish. Humiliated, it will take all of Marcie's persuasive powers to salvage the holiday for Charlie Brown.
The voice cast includes Todd Barbee as Charlie Brown, Robin Kohn as Lucy, Stephen Shea as Linus, Hilary Momberger as Sally, Kip DeFaria as Peppermint Patty, Jimmy Ahrens as Marcie and Robin Reed as Franklin.
