Western Animation: Why, Charlie Brown, Why?
Aired in 1990, this Peanuts special's main subject is cancer, which made Peanuts the first animated series to handle the issue. Ironically, Charles Schulz, the creator of the series, would lose his own battle with cancer a decade later, but his approach to the topic was a brave move. On an autumn day, Linus notices Janice is getting a lot of bruises, and he convinces her to see the nurse. When he learns about Janice and her cancer diagnosis, Linus starts to go through a change. As Janice's treatment for cancer progresses, the seasons changes to symbolize this, and Linus becomes stronger for being emotionally affected by the issues, even going as far as standing up to people.
