ABC Announces New Year's Programming, Including CHARLIE BROWN, RUDOLPH, and More!
by TV News Desk - Dec 26, 2016

The ABC Television Network and the PEANUTS gang will ring in the new year with the half-hour animated PEANUTS special, 'Happy New Year, Charlie Brown,' created by late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz. In 'Happy New Year, Charlie Brown,' the PEANUTS gang is ringing in 1986 and Marcie and Peppermint Patty are throwing a big New Year's Eve bash. Charlie Brown plans to celebrate the holiday by curling up with a big book that weighs nearly as much as he does: Tolstoy's War and Peace. The book's weight doesn't stop him from lugging it to Lucy's pre-party dance class, where he cuts a mean rug with a rollicking Patty. With just 1131 pages to go, Charlie Brown takes another break, this time for the party, and summons the courage to invite his true love, the little red-haired girl. She doesn't respond, but hapless Chuck shows up anyway - with Tolstoy in tow. Then he settles down with the book - on a porch swing in a snowstorm, and in so doing, misses the evening's big surprise. This broadcast of 'Happy New Year, Charlie Brown' airs MONDAY, DECEMBER 26 (8:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m EST) on ABC. (more...)
