Peanuts: A Charlie Brown Christmas (12/9/1965)

“A special that is really special

— one that bears repeating.” —TIME

’Tis the season to be

jolly, but Charlie Brown,

feeling that the

Christmas message

is lost amid all the

seasonal glitter, has

the blues. Psychiatrist

Lucy suggests a cure:

get involved with the Christmas play! When our

hapless hero sets out to find a Christmas tree

to use a stage prop, he unknowingly takes a

step toward discovering the holiday’s true

meaning. The scraggly tree that thrives on a

“little love” and a timely assist from Linus make

the message of the season come shining

through. Winner of the Emmy® and Peabody

awards, A Charlie Brown Christmas has

been digitally remastered for excellent sound

and picture quality.

DEAR SANTA CLAUS,

HOW HAVE YOU BEEN?

DID YOU HAVE

A NICE SUMMER?

HOW IS YOUR WIFE?

I HAVE BEEN

EXTRA GOOD THIS YEAR,

THAT’S WHY I HAVE A LONG LIST

OF PRESENTS THAT I WANT.

                                                       OH, BROTHER.

PLEASE NOTE

THE SIZE AND COLOR

OF EACH ITEM.

SEND AS MANY

AS POSSIBLE.

IF IT’S TOO COMPLICATED,

MAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF.

JUST SEND MONEY.

HOW ABOUT 10s AND 20s?

10s AND 20s?

OH!

ALL I WANT

IS WHAT I HAVE

COMING TO ME--

ALL I WANT IS

MY FAIR SHARE.

           ALL RIGHT.

QUIET, EVERYBODY.

WILL BE HERE ANY MINUTE,

AND WE’LL START REHEARSAL.

DIRECTOR?

WHAT DIRECTOR?

CHARLIE BROWN.

OH, NO!

WE’RE DOOMED!

THIS WILL BE THE WORST

CHRISTMAS PLAY EVER.

HERE HE COMES.

ATTENTION, EVERYONE!

HERE’S OUR DIRECTOR.

A GOOD PERFORMANCE…

IS STRICT ATTENTION

MY DIRECTIONS SIMPLE.

IF I MAKE

A REVOLVING MOTION

WITH MY HAND,

IT MEANS

PICK UP THE TEMPO.

IF I SPREAD MY HANDS APART,

IT MEANS SLOW DOWN.

I SAID, “AM I RIGHT?”

D  I  R  E  C  T  O  R

STOP THE MUSIC!

WE’RE GOING

TO DO THIS PLAY,

AND WE’RE GOING

TO DO IT RIGHT.

LUCY, GET THOSE

COSTUMES AND SCRIPTS

AND PASS THEM OUT.

THE SCRIPT GIRL WILL BE

HANDING OUT YOUR PARTS.

YOU’RE

THE INNKEEPER’S WIFE.

DO INNKEEPER’S WIVES

HAVE NATURALLY CURLY HAIR?

PIG PEN,

YOU’RE THE INNKEEPER.

IN SPITE OF

MY OUTWARD APPEARANCE,

I SHALL TRY TO RUN

A NEAT INN.

SHERMY,

YOU’RE A SHEPHERD.

EVERY CHRISTMAS

IT’S THE SAME.

I ALWAYS END UP

PLAYING A SHEPHERD.

SNOOPY,

YOU’LL HAVE TO BE

ALL THE ANIMALS

IN OUR PLAY.

CAN YOU BE A SHEEP?

                                                      BAAA.

HOW ABOUT A COW?

                                                      MOO.

HOW ABOUT A PENGUIN?

YES, HE’S EVEN

A GOOD PENGUIN.

RARRR.

NO, NO, NO!

LISTEN, ALL OF YOU!

YOU’VE GOT TO

TAKE DIRECTION!

YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE

DISCIPLINE!

YOU’VE GOT TO

HAVE RESPECT

FOR YOUR DIRECTOR!

I OUGHT TO SLUG YOU!

[SLURP]

I’VE BEEN KISSED

BY A DOG!

I HAVE DOG GERMS!

GET HOT WATER!

GET SOME DISINFECTANT!

GET SOME IODINE!

          ALL RIGHT!

ALL RIGHT, SCRIPT GIRL.

CONTINUE WITH THE SCRIPTS.

LINUS, YOU’VE GOT TO GET RID

OF THAT STUPID BLANKET.

AND HERE.

MEMORIZE THESE LINES.

I CAN’T MEMORIZE

THESE LINES.

THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

MEMORIZE

AND BE READY TO RECITE

WHEN YOUR CUE COMES.

I CAN’T MEMORIZE

SOMETHING SO QUICKLY.

WHY SHOULD I BE PUT

THROUGH SUCH AGONY?

GIVE ME ONE GOOD REASON

WHY I SHOULD

MEMORIZE THIS.

I’LL GIVE YOU

FIVE GOOD REASONS--

ONE, TWO,

THREE, FOUR, FIVE.

THOSE ARE GOOD REASONS.

CHRISTMAS IS NOT ONLY

GETTING TOO COMMERCIAL,

IT’S GETTING

TOO DANGEROUS.

GET RID OF THAT

STUPID BLANKET!

WHAT’S A CHRISTMAS SHEPHERD

GOING TO LOOK LIKE…

HOLDING

A STUPID BLANKET

LIKE THAT?

THIS IS ONE

CHRISTMAS SHEPHERD

WHO’S GOING TO KEEP

HIS TRUSTY BLANKET.

SEE? YOU WOULDN’T

HIT AN INNOCENT

SHEPHERD, WOULD YOU?

O.K.,

MR. DIRECTOR,

THE CAST IS SET.

TAKE OVER.

SCHROEDER, SET THE MOOD

FOR THE FIRST SCENE.

♪♪ [ JAZZY ]

CUT! CUT! NO, NO, NO!

LOOK, THE REHEARSE

THE SCENE AT THE INN.

FRIEDA, THIS--

           I CAN’T GO ON.

THERE’S TOO MUCH DUST.

IT’S TAKING THE CURL OUT OF

MY NATURALLY CURLY HAIR.

DON’T THINK OF IT

AS DUST.

THINK OF IT

AS MAYBE THE SOIL…

OF SOME GREAT

PAST CIVILIZATION,

MAYBE THE SOIL

OF ANCIENT BABYLON.

IT STAGGERS

THE IMAGINATION.

HE MAY BE CARRYING SOIL

THAT WAS TROD UPON

BY SOLOMON

OR EVEN NEBUCHADNEZZAR.

MAKES YOU

WANT TO TREAT ME

WITH MORE RESPECT,

DOESN’T IT?

YOU’RE AN ABSOLUTE MESS.

JUST LOOK AT YOURSELF.

ON THE CONTRARY.

I DIDN’T THINK

I LOOKED THAT GOOD.

SALLY, COME HERE.

WHAT DO YOU

WANT HER FOR?

SHE’S GOING

TO BE YOUR WIFE.

WE’VE

WITH OUR PLAY.

THAT’S RIGHT.

WHAT ABOUT MY PART?

WHAT ABOUT THE

CHRISTMAS QUEEN, HMM?

ARE YOU GOING TO LET

ALL THIS BEAUTY

GO TO WASTE?

YOU DO THINK

I’M BEAUTIFUL,

DON’T YOU, CHARLIE BROWN?

YOU DIDN’T

ANSWER RIGHT AWAY.

YOU HAD TO THINK

ABOUT IT FIRST.

IF YOU THOUGHT

I WAS BEAUTIFUL,

YOU WOULD’VE SPOKEN UP.

I KNOW WHEN I’VE

BEEN INSULTED!

I KNOW WHEN I’VE

BEEN INSULTED!

GOOD GRIEF.

ALL RIGHT. LET’S TAKE IT

FROM THE TOP AGAIN.

PLACES. ACTION.

♪♪ [ JAZZY ]

CHARLIE BROWN,

ISN’T IT A GREAT PLAY?

THAT DOES IT!

IF WE’RE EVER TO GET

THIS PLAY OFF THE GROUND,

WE’VE GOT TO HAVE

SOME COOPERATION.

WHAT’S THE MATTER,

CHARLIE BROWN?

D  I  R  E  C  T  O  R

DON’T YOU THINK

IT’S GREAT?

C  T  O  R

IT’S ALL WRONG.

C  T  O  R

LOOK, CHARLIE,

LET’S FACE IT.

WE KNOW

CHRISTMAS IS A BIG

COMMERCIAL RACKET.

IT’S RUN BY AN

EASTERN SYNDICATE.

C  T  O  R

WELL, THIS PLAY

WON’T BE COMMERCIAL.

LOOK, WHAT DO YOU WANT?

E  C  T  O  R

THE PROPER MOOD.

WE NEED A CHRISTMAS TREE.

E  C  T  O  R

HEY. PERHAPS A TREE.

E  C  T  O  R

A GREAT BIG SHINY

ALUMINUM CHRISTMAS TREE.

THAT’S IT,

CHARLIE BROWN.

YOU GET THE TREE.

I’LL HANDLE THIS CROWD.

OKAY, I’LL TAKE

LINUS WITH ME.

D  I  R  E

THE REST OF YOU

PRACTICE YOUR LINES.

GET THE BIGGEST

ALUMINUM TREE

YOU CAN FIND,

MAYBE PAINTED PINK.

DO SOMETHING RIGHT

FOR A CHANGE,

CHARLIE BROWN.

D  I  R  E

D  I  R  E  C  T  O  R

I DON’T KNOW, LINUS.

I JUST DON’T KNOW.

I GUESS WE’D

BETTER CONCENTRATE

ON FINDING A NICE

CHRISTMAS TREE.

I SUGGEST WE TRY

THOSE SEARCHLIGHTS,

CHARLIE BROWN.

[CLANG CLANG]

THIS REALLY

BRINGS CHRISTMAS

CLOSE TO A PERSON.

FANTASTIC.

GEE, DO THEY STILL MAKE

WOODEN CHRISTMAS TREES?

THIS LITTLE GREEN ONE

SEEMS TO NEED A HOME.

I DON’T KNOW,

CHARLIE BROWN.

REMEMBER

WHAT LUCY SAID?

THIS DOESN’T

SEEM TO FIT

THE MODERN SPIRIT.

I DON’T CARE.

WE’LL DECORATE IT,

AND IT’LL BE JUST RIGHT

FOR OUR PLAY.

BESIDES,

I THINK IT NEEDS ME.

THIS IS THE MUSIC

I’VE SELECTED

FOR THE CHRISTMAS PLAY.

♪♪ [ CLASSICAL ]

WHAT KIND OF

CHRISTMAS MUSIC IS THAT?

BEETHOVEN

CHRISTMAS MUSIC.

WHAT HAS BEETHOVEN

GOT TO DO

WITH CHRISTMAS?

EVERYONE TALKS

ABOUT HOW GREAT

BEETHOVEN WAS.

BEETHOVEN

WASN’T SO GREAT.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN,

BEETHOVEN WASN’T

SO GREAT?

HE NEVER GOT HIS PICTURE

OF BUBBLEGUM CARDS.

HAVE YOU EVER

SEEN HIS PICTURE

ON A BUBBLEGUM CARD?

HOW CAN YOU SAY

SOMEONE’S GREAT

WHO’S NEVER HAD

HIS PICTURE ON BUBBLEGUM CARDS?

GOOD GRIEF.

YOU PLAY, “JINGLE BELLS”?

WE’RE BACK.

D    I    R    E    C    T    O    R

BOY, ARE YOU STUPID,

CHARLIE BROWN.

WHAT KIND OF TREE

           IS THAT?

YOU WERE SUPPOSED

TO GET A GOOD TREE.

CAN’T YOU EVEN TELL

A GOOD TREE FROM A POOR TREE?

I TOLD YOU

HE’D GOOF IT UP.

HE’S NOT THE KIND YOU CAN

DEPEND ON TO DO ANYTHING RIGHT.

YOU’RE HOPELESS,

CHARLIE BROWN.

COMPLETELY

HOPELESS.

RATS!

YOU’VE BEEN DUMB

BEFORE,

BUT THIS TIME

YOU REALLY

DID IT.

WHAT A TREE!

I GUESS YOU WERE

RIGHT, LINUS.

I SHOULDN’T HAVE

PICKED THIS LITTLE TREE.

EVERYTHING I DO

TURNS INTO A DISASTER.

I GUESS I REALLY DON’T KNOW

WHAT CHRISTMAS IS ALL ABOUT.

ISN’T THERE ANYONE

WHO KNOWS WHAT CHRISTMAS

IS ALL ABOUT?

SURE, CHARLIE BROWN.

I’LL TELL YOU

WHAT CHRISTMAS

IS ALL ABOUT.

LIGHTS, PLEASE.

AND THERE WERE IN THE SAME

            COUNTRY, SHEPHERDS,

ABIDING IN THE FIELD,

           KEEPING WATCH

OVER THEIR FLOCK BY NIGHT,

           AND LO, THE ANGEL

OF THE LORD CAME UPON THEM.

THE GLORY OF THE LORD

SHONE AROUND ABOUT THEM,

AND THEY WERE SO AFRAID.

           AND THE ANGEL

SAID UNTO THEM, “FEAR NOT,

“FOR BEHOLD, I BRING YOU

TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY,

“WHICH WILL BE

TO ALL PEOPLE,

“FOR UNTO YOU

IS BORN THIS DAY

“IN THE CITY OF DAVID

            “A SAVIOR,

JESUS CHRIST THE LORD,

“AND THIS SHALL BE

A SIGN UNTO YOU.

“YE SHALL FIND THE BABE

WRAPPED IN SWADDLING CLOTHES

LYING IN A MANGER.”

           AND SUDDENLY

THERE WAS WITH THE ANGEL

           A MULTITUDE OF THE

HEAVENLY HOST PRAISING GOD

AND SAYING, “GLORY TO GOD

           IN THE HIGHEST

AND ON EARTH PEACE,

GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN.”

THAT’S WHAT CHRISTMAS

IS ALL ABOUT, CHARLIE BROWN.

AND THIS SHALL BE

A SIGN UNTO YOU.

LINUS IS RIGHT.

I WON’T LET

ALL THIS COMMERCIALISM

RUIN MY CHRISTMAS.

I’LL TAKE THIS LITTLE TREE

HOME AND DECORATE IT.
