    Love the VCR tape deck on the TV. Just like mine from that era. Missing the DVD or Blu-ray under the flat screen. At least that’s where mine is.

    It’s one of those movies you know exactly what is going to happen and what they are going to say, but it doesn’t matter, it is not Christmas without a Charlie Brown Christmas…

    It was wholly atypical from the type of cartoons normally shown to kids at that time. CBS didn’t want to air it because of Linus’s speech.but they had nothing else to fill a half-hour. After it aired,the network got a wave of phone calls praising the show. And a classic was born.

    Ain’t it the truth. If anyone doubts that Schulz was a genius, aluminum Christmas trees may have gone the way of disco, but that special is still as popular as ever.

    Lord, I miss that man…

    Since most of us still had black and white TVs in 1965, perhaps that first panel should be in black and white! That show always reminds me of going into the deep woods with my father to get a “Charlie Brown tree” every year. I cry every year when I watch it because I miss my father, even after thirty years.

    I feel it would have added to the authenticity if the VCR was flashing 12:00.

    @Maridozi We didn’t get a color TV until 1971.

    Maridozi is right, and the screen in 1965 should be round.

    Charlie Brown Christmas and the Grinch are the top two on my list.

    Our family really liked “Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”.

    Round screen in 1965? Not that common. My family had a b/w TV in 1965, but my wife’s family already had their first color TV. The fad for aluminum trees might have just run its course, but Charlie Brown’s Christmas came out in 1965, and by 1967 no one was manufacturing aluminum trees anymore. Many feel Charlie Brown killed aluminum trees. A few years back I was a member of a service organization that ran a Christmas Tree lot as a fund raiser. Every year we had a few people come in looking for a “Charlie Brown Tree.”
