A Charlie Brown Christmas is the first prime-time animated TV special based upon the comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. It was produced & directed by animator Bill Melendez, who also supplied the voice for the character of Snoopy. The special debuted on CBS in 1965, & has been aired in the USA during the Christmas season every year since. It touches on the over-commercialization & secularism of Christmas, & serves to remind viewers of the true meaning of Christmas
