What Christmas Is All About
Written by Charles M. Schulz and directed by Bill Melendez, A Charlie Brown Christmas was a TV movie that debuted in 1965. Everyone’s favorite round-headed kid, Charlie Brown, becomes depressed when he realizes that everyone around him is focused on sending cards and getting gifts. At Lucy’s suggestion, Charlie Brown takes on directing the school Christmas play, but his frustration continues when none of the children listen to him. To get everyone in the Christmas spirit, Charlie Brown picks out a sad little Christmas tree, but everyone laughs at his choice. Linus reminds a depressed Charlie Brown that the true meaning of Christmas isn’t about Christmas lights and fancy presents. CBS executives objected to the show’s religious message and the absence of a canned laugh track. They also objected to Guaraldi’s jazz soundtrack. The show’s ratings proved them wrong. Audiences loved the story and the music and made A Charlie Brown Christmas a holiday classic. The critically-acclaimed show won an Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Program in 1966. Other awards for the program include a Grammy for Best Recording for Children and a Peabody Award. In 2013, Tams-Witmark licensed this official stage adaptation. The show has been a favorite of community theater companies and school productions ever since.
