Charlie Brown’s holiday special about the overcommercialization of Christmas had too many commercials
Since 1950, the comic strip and TV show Peanuts have been captivating viewers with its unique philosophy. Even in Charlie Brown’s holiday special about Christmas, the memorable animated series invited people to think critically about serious problems of the time.
This episode discussed how the overcommercialization of Christmas had taken away from the holiday’s original purpose. Even though it sounds like a powerful message that everyone should learn, ABC chose to air more commercials by cutting scenes from the show. The irony is heavy here.
