Tonight's the Night!


A Charlie Brown Christmas is on ABC tonight.

Linus has always been my favorite, though apparently when I was three I insisted on being called Sally. I love Linus' s peculiar clear voice and the way he says “Charlie Brown,” with the syllables coming right from the front of his mouth.

Also, Peanuts on TV always makes me think of the old CBS Special Presentation promo and commercials for Peppermint Patties and Mounds and Almond Joy -- I think Peter & Paul sponsored the show. Does anyone remember these ads? “A York Peppermint Pattie gives me the sensation of a cool breeze...” Those were the days.

When I was a kid, my mother taped me the Charlie Brown Christmas Special off the tv, so I had all the old comericals and such on the tape...I had 'em all memorized. It was awesome.

I always think of Tollhouse cookies when I watch Charlie Brown.
