Il Grande Cocomero e altre storie dei Peanuts 31.10.15

10 curiosità sugli special halloweeniani e natalizi dei Peanuts, A Charlie Brown Christmas e It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

Lee Mendelson hadn't planned on a career in animation. But when television sponsors saw the filmmaker's documentary about cartoonist Charles Schulz, they asked if the two could team up to produce a Christmas special based on Schulz's Peanuts strip. The result, A Charlie Brown Christmas, was seen by roughly half of all households watching television during its premiere on CBS on December 9, 1965.

Mendelson went on to produce other Peanuts primetime specials, but 1966's It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown remains one of the most endearing. As you prepare annual sympathy for poor ol' Chuck ("I got a rock"), check out some facts about naked composers, vomiting voice actors, and CBS's bizarre ultimatum.
