TCC TV: A Charlie Brown Christmas

Posted in TCC Films, TCC TV | Under , , , , , |

A Charlie Brown Christmas

We recommend the animated television specialA Charlie Brown Christmas, based on the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz. Schulz insisted that the characters be voiced by real children, that the laugh track be replaced by a jazz score, and that the story end with the Biblical account of the Christmas story. His changes made A Charlie Brown Christmas a surprisingly-moving classic. The show debuted in 1965 and continues to remind viewers of the true meaning of Christmas. Watch a clip after the jump:

romney-friday-night-lights.jpeg-1280x960 TCC’s own, Anna Keating, recommends that you watch all 76 episodes of Friday Night Lights on Netflix. Not only because Friday Night Lights depicts the best marriage ever written for television, but because the show so often gets life in community and in small town America right.
