Funny: A Charlie Brown Christmas
  • "Real estate!"
    • Ruined in the Polish translation, which translated this line simply as "Something valuable!".
    • The original Finnish dub misses the joke completely: Sally says that she wants reality for Christmas.
  • Schroeder trying to play Jingle Bells to Lucy's satisfaction.
    • Not to mention him playing an extremely simple version with a glare on his face, then having Lucy scream "THAT'S IT!!!", sending him flying.
    • His first attempt has his piano sounding like a regular grand piano, his second attempt has it sounding like an organ, and his exasperated attempt actually sounds like a toy piano.
  • Snoopy mocking Lucy's directing demands and gestures, then ducking her fist and licking her in retaliation.
    • Lucy: "Yes, he's even a good penguin."
    • Better yet, Snoopy does an imitation of all the animals Lucy wants him to do and after she says the above-mentioned line, he jumps onto her head, imitating a vulture.
  • Linus gets a lot of good lines:
    "Christmas is not only getting too commercial, it's getting too dangerous."
    "Gee, do they still make wooden Christmas trees?"
    "You know, maybe Lucy's right — of all the Charlie Browns in the world, you're the Charlie Browniest."
  • Charlie Brown: "I've killed it..."
    • Actually, this scene counts as both this and a Tear Jerker.
  • The kids dancing, particularly Shermy doing the zombie walk and 5 doing...whatever he's doing.
    • And Violet's air-punching. What's up with that?
  • This Exchange:
    (Lucy & Linus are arguing over Linus having to memorize a script)
    LINUS: "Just give me one good reason why I should go through such agony!"
    LUCY: "I'll give you FIVE good reasons!" *holds up five fingers and makes, finger by finger, into a fist* "One! Two! Three! Four! FIVE!! "
    LINUS: "Those are good reasons! Christmas is not only getting too commercial, it's getting too dangerous!"
