15. A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
It’s hard to believe this movie is over 50-years old. It’s even harder to think that the legendary “Peanuts” creator, Charles M. Schulz, is no longer with us. His legacy lives on in the hands of Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the gang.
“A Charlie Brown Christmas,” is an animated feature starring the voice talents of Sally Dryer, Peter Robbins, Christopher Shea, and Tracy Stratford. Written by Schultz and directed by Bill Melendez, along with Phil Roman – this movie is an amusing and entertaining tale.
Charlie Brown earns himself the directorship of the annual school Christmas play, after moaning about the materialistic nature of the Christmas season. Co-coordinating the event turns out to be a struggle for Charlie, and along the way, he gets advice from Linus on the meaning of Christmas. It’s an excellent movie your kids will love and gives pause to remind us to be grateful for what we have during the festive season.
