Coming on the heels of the New York Times best-selling PEANUTS: A GOLDEN CELEBRATION, this is the 40th anniversary deluxe edition of America’s most popular TV Christmas special, featuring never-before-published original (digitized) animation art, the complete script, the behind-the-scenes making of the cartoon, and Vince Guaraldi’s original score and production notes.

The most popular Christmas TV special of all time, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is viewed every year by millions, young and old. Especially poignant this year both because of the show’s anniversary and the recent death of creator Charles “Sparky” Schulz on the day of his official farewell Sunday strip, the 40th anniversary of this heartwarming, moving, often hilariously funny and sophisticated animated cartoon will be marked by the publication of our four-color gift book, A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Featuring more than 150 never-before-reproduced in book form four-color frames from the animated cartoon, the original script, pieces of Vince Guaraldi’s musical score with handwritten behind-the-scenes production notes, interviews with some of the original “child” actors (who had lent their voices to the first-ever animated cartoon to feature real children), an introduction by the cartoon’s executive producer Lee Mendelson, reminiscences by original Peanuts animator Bill Melendez, and much more. A Charlie Brown Christmas is a fitting salute to the artist who forever changed the face of cartooning, and to the annual Christmas event that the Peanuts gang have celebrated for the last 35 years. It is a must-have for all Peanuts fans, young and old.
Charles M. Schulz, the most popular cartoonist in the world with strips in 2,600 newspapers, retired in February 2000, and passed away the day of this final farewell Sunday Peanuts strip on February 13th. He lived in Santa Rosa, California.
