I can't believe they show this shit still.
John Hein fast forwards through a Charlie Brown Christmas. Because of the Jesus talk . . .
As long as people watch, they will continue to show it every year. Just like on Thanksgiving PIX shows "March of the Wooden Soldiers", and on Christmas TBS runs the "A Christmas Story" marathon.. on New Years PIX runs a "Honeymooners" marathon and SyFy runs a "Twilight Zone" marathon for about two days straight.
The Halloween special is the best one.
I may be an atheist, but for some reason, I still love the Charlie Brown holiday specials.
Yup. Especially the Christmas one.
Christmas has been secularized anyway. I can remember almost every Christmas from my childhood and religion and Jesus were never any part of it. I think we had some tree ornaments that had some religious themes, but they were all either gifted or inherited.
It's probably like that for most Americans. Same with the cartoons.
Remember when Lisa G was busting Howard's balls for a fruit basket as a Christmas present. And his reply was "Aren't you a Jew" . . .
Christmas has no religious connotations for me, or for anyone in my family as far a I know. It's just a good time to have a pine tree in the house, with it's good smell, and just be generally nice to each other for a while.
We can be less than nice 10 months out of the year, but November and December have good feelings.
And fuck you all you want to bring those thoughts down. I assume the insults will come.
I'm in my mid 30's and we try to get our nephews and nieces into the Charlie Brown specials and Rudolph (you know the classics) and shit when its babysitting time, but they watch for about ten minutes and want the cable cartoon shows back on, the nerve of the kids today....little bastards.
Little fuckers these days have no taste. Try to get them to watch Voltron, He-Man, and Thunder Cats. And they would rather see some other stupid shit . . .
Actually this is the Thanksgiving version:
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
cause it's a classic & better than 98% of the shit on TV today
What gets me is that it's still aired in the PC age. The whole Mayflower coming over and the rest is quite one sided.
I watched the This Is America Charlie Brown right after it (about the mayflower, 1st thankgiving etc.)
Squanto said he was thankful for the British for allowing him back to America after being enslaved by one of them.
My kids hate charlie brown and his bunch of unlikeable sociopathic friends.
I am seeing their point
Halloween/Christmas are both good, the others pretty much suck
