  • The famous Peanuts music is most famously heard in the TV special A Charlie Brown Christmas, but it first appeared the previous year in a documentary about the comic called A Boy Named Charlie Brown. The song was included on the soundtrack to that documentary, which contained a clever, but somewhat disturbing, album cover showing Vince Guaraldi's head on Schroeder's body.

  • Patrick from Wahiawa, HiOn duty at Sears, Roebuck Ala Moana in December, I slipped the "Happy Anniversary, Charlie Brown!" CD into a player that otherwise played sub-par "Xmas Muzak." As Japanese tourists passed the camping setup, "Linus and Lucy" played, and they happily called out: "Charlie Brown!"
