I thought this was interesting:

Bill Melendez tried to talk Charles M. Schulz out of using Biblical references (especially Linus's speech) in this special. Schulz reportedly won him over by saying, "If we don't do it, who will?" As it turned out, Linus' recitation was hailed as one of the most powerful moments in the highly acclaimed special.

To add more to the trivia: Coke and CBS hated the show. They aired it anyway because they had already committed to airing the special. They planned to air it one time and never show it again. It was a shock to everyone involved that A Charlie Brown Christmas was number 2 in the ratings and lauded by critics everywhere. Thus a Christmas classic was born...

The original airing of A Charlie Brown Christmas has not been seen on TV since the 1960s. Small edits had been taking place for years before ABC came along. While most of the original show can be found on DVD, the ad placements for Coke have been removed, including a shot during the opening (where Linus lands after Snoopy lets go) and a cut during the song at the end.

I am obsessed with A Charlie Brown Christmas.

A friend of mine pointed out they are missing alot of parts. THere is also another Peanuts movie that they do not show anymore and it involved Charlie Brown going to NYC in search of Snoopy. Apparently it had way too much mention of Jesus and stuff like that. It was set during the New Years season and all I can say is, I am really getting tired of all this PC stuff.

A Charlie Brown Christmas is my favorite Christmas special. I noticed some things were missing too. Is the DVD version the official unedited version? If it is I may think about buying it.

The original unedited broadcast aired from '65 to '68 when Dolly Madison became a sponsor. But the DVD contains the special that most people remember.
