Hammond’s Notes
Peanuts special(s)
Originally sponsored by coke. The scene of Linus hitting a coke machine at the start has been cut.

I have watched Snow Days. A Dog for Christmas. And the 1992 Christmas Special. They all feel like 3 or 4 panel comics brought to life.
Not sure how I like the pacing of the later ones.

Were these meant for kids? Sophisticated themes and music. Even more deep than Rocky and Bullwinkle.

I Want A Dog For Christmas Charlie Brown – Rerun, Linus and Lucy’s little Brother.
