"A Charlie Brown Christmas"

Tomorrow night, at 8:00, ABC will air one of my favorite short films: A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Wanting to know more about the 30-minute cartoon, I did some reading about the movie and found a conversation with producer, Lee Mendelson.

He talks about an interview with Time magazine where the Peanuts characters make an appearance on the cover and stirs up interest from advertisers. That leads to the special we know and love today.

Once it was animated, voiced, and put together, Time got a sneak preview. Their review was much different from what the network thought of it.

Great, behind-the-scenes conversation here.
