A Charlie Brown Christmas Preview: Airing On ABC Tuesday Night

Tomorrow night ABC will air the classic Charles Schulz Christmas special, A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Whether it’s to expose your children to the wonderful world of Peanuts or because your own inner child requires at least one viewing of the special each year, if you love this little animated movie, check out ABC tomorrow night. And, if you want to watch it again (or you’re reading this after Tuesday), A Charlie Brown Christmas will re-air on December 16th.

Below is ABC’s description for the film and further down are a couple of clips.

In the digitally-remastered 1965 special, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism that he sees everywhere during the Christmas season. Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant, and Charlie Brown accepts, but it proves to be a frustrating struggle. When an attempt to restore the proper spirit with a forlorn little fir Christmas tree fails, Charlie Brown needs Linus' help to learn what the real meaning of Christmas is.

A Charlie Brown Christmas will air on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. It will re-air on Thursday, December 16 from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET.
