‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ Facts:













Just before her remarks about Christmas being a big commercial racket, Lucy refers to Charlie Brown simply as Charlie. This is the only time she does this in any of the TV specials: every other time it’s Charlie Brown.

Whenever the ornament makes the tree fall it actually represents commercialism taking over Christmases true meaning. But when the kids fix it then it means the meaning has been found.

The special broke many of the rules prevalent for animated holiday specials during the 1960s: it didn’t make use of a laugh track; real children were used for the character voices instead of adult actors imitating children’s voices; and Biblical references were used to illustrate the true meaning of Christmas.

Jefferson Airplane wanted autographs from all the kids who voiced the characters.

The version of the show broadcast on CBS-TV until 1997 and older video releases are edited: they leave out a scene where the gang throws snowballs at a can on a fence. The Paramount and Warner video releases are complete and unedited.

None of the children who voiced the characters received credit at the end. A version with a laugh track was produced but later discarded after the success of the broadcast version.

Kathy Steinberg, who did the voice of Sally Brown, had not yet learned to read at the time of production, so she had to be fed her lines, often a word or syllable at a time, which explains the rather choppy delivery of the line “All I want is what I have coming to me. All I want is my fair share”.

Break Your Holiday Budget

A new survey found 78% of us have gone over-budget on Christmas before and the average person ends up spending $218 more than they planned to. 54% of us have re-gifted something to save money. Here are the top reasons we go over-budget: 

Trying to buy someone the “perfect gift.” 65% of people said they’ve overspent because they wanted a gift to be perfect. 

Forgetting to include people on your list. So you end up buying extra presents you weren’t planning to buy, 57%. 

Buying things for yourself while you’re shopping for other people. 49% of us have done it and ended up spending too much. 

Overspending on small things, like cards, wrapping paper, and stocking stuffers, 25%. Or forgetting to factor stuff like that into your budget in the first place. 

The survey also found 27% of us expect to pay off our holiday bills within a month. 14% say it’ll take three months and 7% say it’ll take at least six months to catch up.

Phil out of L.A.Guns

Phil Lewis has announced his departure from L.A. Guns. His official statement on the matter reads as follows:

 "Dear friends and fans, with a heavy heart, I have to inform you that as of January 1, 2017 I will no longer be a member of this lineup. I feel I have gone as far as I can in this band, and unless I get out and focus on myself and something new that has a future, I'm going to stagnate.

 "For the last five years, I've been enthusiastic to record a new record. 'Hollywood Forever' really recharged my batteries and made me feel very proud to be in this band, but it feels like so long ago now. At this stage, I want to walk away with at least a little dignity. "I want to thank you all for your solid support throughout the last 15 years. We've had the pleasure and honor of playing so many wonderful countries, and I've always made a point of getting out and meeting some of the best, most loyal fans in the business. Your smiling faces will always be a huge part of my adventure, and I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. What's the point of making records or playing shows if you don't have fans for feedback, and I feel blessed to have so many cool people who treasure the music as much as I do as a part of our fan base.

 "I will continue writing, recording, and performing in the future. I have some solid plans, and I'm also open to where fate will take me on my musical adventure, and I sincerely hope if I'm anywhere near you, you'll come out and say hi and hear what I'm doing. "I love rock and roll, it's been my religion and salvation for many decades, and I feel the fire burning in my soul to do more. I have no plans on slowing down or retiring anytime soon, so please don't be sad. 

 "Wish me luck and please stay in touch. Goodbye."

~Phil~
