Produced on the cheap-and-quick for Creator/{{CBS}} in [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfAnimation 1965]] (a careful viewer will notice that it's rife with [[OffModel animation errors]] due to its rushed production), '''''A Charlie Brown Christmas''''' has nonetheless gone on to become one of the most iconic Christmas works of all time. It's also one of the most ''successful'' of all time, having been reliably on TV from its debut to the modern day. In fact, if you're from a Christmas-celebrating household, chances are you've already watched this more times than you can count and we don't have to tell you ''anything'' about the plot. But then again, where's the fun in that?

And yet... there's a ''[[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments reason]]'' this 25-minute cartoon has aired on network TV every December for 50 years, originally on CBS and now on Creator/{{ABC}}. The special's perennial appeal is so strong that when it was edited for time with the greater number of commercials allowed in recent years, fans raised such a stink that it was later regularly broadcast with the original length in an hour timeslot with a new segment, ''Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales'', being commissioned to fill up the remaining time [[note]]Of course, the fact that the network could then sell twice as many commercial spots with a consistently good rated rerun was appealing as well.[[/note]]. Furthermore, the special, that originally no one had faith in, getting the anniversary treatment on this year's 50th anniversary with a two hour special called ''Itís Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown.'' Better yet, this was only the first of many specials focusing on the ''Peanuts'' gang.
