Scoop: A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS on ABC - Today, November 28, 2012
TODAY, NOVEMBER 28 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET; OAD 12/8/08): ABC will celebrate the joy of the holidays with the classic animated Christmas-themed PEANUTS special, "A Charlie Brown Christmas," created by late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz. In the digitally-remastered 1965 special, "A Charlie Brown Christmas," Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism that he sees everywhere during the Christmas season. Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant, and Charlie Brown accepts, but it proves to be a frustrating struggle. When an attempt to restore the proper spirit with a forlorn little fir Christmas tree fails, Charlie Brown needs Linus' help to learn what the real meaning of Christmas is. The hour will also include "Prep & Landing: Operation Secret Santa," a seven-minute animated short featuring the voice of Betty White as Mrs. Claus.
