All the votes have been tallied after a long and grueling tournament to find what is the number one all-time Christmas TV special determined by the screenagers. And we have our winner! We started with eight worthy competitors and this one stands tall above them all, defeating some tough competition.
We would like to thank everyone who voted and also want to encourage all of you to check back this week for our greatest Christmas Movie Tournament!
Okay, enough stalling! And the winner is…
A Charlie Brown Christmas is a 1965 animated television special, and is the first TV special based on the comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. Produced by Lee Mendelson and directed by Bill Melendez, the program made its debut on CBS on December 9, 1965. In this special, Charlie Brown finds himself depressed despite the onset of the cheerful holiday season. Lucy suggests he direct a neighborhood Christmas play, but his best efforts are ignored and mocked by his peers. After Linus tells Charlie Brown about the true meaning of Christmas, Charlie Brown cheers up, and the Peanuts gang unites to celebrate the Christmas season.
Well wasteoids, what do you think of the winner? Is it a yearly must watch for you? Do you think a different Special should have won?
