I removed the "racism" stuff because there's no proof, just some assumption that the kids not helping Franklin up when he slid down his chair meant that they were racist. 16:29, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

Sparky's discussion of the Franklin character would seem to argue against racism. Glad you removed it. user:PurpleChez — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:45, 12 November 2013 (UTC)


How come Lucy is missing from almost all of this episode? (talk) 05:07, 20 November 2010 (UTC)


In addition to the popcorn etc served at the pingpong table, each place setting includes a sundae in a large wine glass -- most likely jello topped with cool whip and a cherry.- (talk) 15:18, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

'Thus, when "A Charlie Brown Christmas" debuted in December 1965, it did more than reunite Schulz, Mendelson, Melendez and Guaraldi, all of whom quickly turned the Peanuts franchise into a television institution. That first special also shot Guaraldi to greater fame, and he became irreplaceably welded to all subsequent Peanuts shows. Many of his earliest Peanuts tunes -- "Linus and Lucy", "Red Baron" and "Great Pumpkin Waltz", among others -- became signature themes that turned up in later specials... On February 6, 1976, while waiting in a motel room between sets at Menlo Park's Butterfield's nightclub, Guaraldi died of a sudden heart-attack. He was only 47 years old... A few weeks later, on March 16, "It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown" debuted on television. It was the 15th, and last, Peanuts television special to boast Guaraldi's original music. He had just finished recording his portion of the soundtrack on the very afternoon of the day he died... Those who followed in Guaraldi's Peanuts-themed footsteps -- Ed Bogas, Desiree Goyette, Judy Munsen and others -- found the shoes impossible to fill. Not one produced a song or theme anywhere near as catchy as the Master, and several of the specials from the late 1970s and '80s consequently lacked a certain zip.'

Please add soundtrack details. What is the name of the Vince Guaraldi theme song? It seems to be the same or similar in many of the CB animations -- how many, which ones? Is it always personally performed by VG? Is a custom version re-recorded for each animation, or do they just keep pasting in the same original recording into each soundtrack? Did they go on re-using the original recording after VG died, or have others performed "his" music?- (talk) 21:54, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Broadcast history[edit]

the list introduced as examples of scenes cut to create more time for commercials also includes several continuity errors. Not only are these misplaced, but finding continuity errors in a Peanuts cartoon is like shooting fish in a barrel. (And I say that despite my great love of Peanuts cartoons....) user:PurpleChez — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:48, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Vince Guaraldi vocalist - sings "Little Birdie"[edit]

Televisionary: Composer-musician Vince Guaraldi, who wrote and played the classic Peanuts music, also handled the vocal duties on "Joe Cool" (1972's You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown) and "Little Birdie" (1973's A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving).

Ok - and? What is your point with this post? It's common knowledge that Guaraldi sang this part. Ckruschke (talk) 16:46, 29 November 2016 (UTC)Ckruschke
