"IT'S CHRISTMASTIME AGAIN, CHARLIE BROWN":
"It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown is a television special based off the comic strip Peanuts. It consists of several different Christmas-themed storylines adaptated from the strip:
Charlie Brown tries to sell wreaths door-to-door because he wants to buy Peggy Jean a nice pair of gloves.
Peppermint Patty worries about her Christmas book report.
The gang participates in a Christmas play, where Peppermint Patty reluctantly plays a sheep and Sally messes up her single line. (The line relegated to Sally was "Hark!", but instead she shouts "Hockey Stick!"-- which was taken from an 80s storyline in the comic strip)
Although it was first shown on CBS in 1992 (and would be the last Peanuts special to have its television premiere on that network), a VHS release was made available at Shell gas stations a few months prior, which would make this the first Peanuts special released directly to video. Paramount gave it another video release in 1996, and it can now also be seen as a bonus special on the DVD of A Charlie Brown Christmas. It was dubbed by Universal Studios.
ABC has combined It's Christmastime Again with A Charlie Brown Christmas in its most recent annual broadcasts, airing its separate stories directly afterwards but without the special's own title sequence. YTV still airs it as a stand alone special.
This is the first Peanuts TV special since It's Arbor Day, Charlie Brown to make use of the famous Vince Guaraldi music scores, even though he died in 1976. The old music was remixed into soft-rock versions for many of the 1990s Peanuts specials."
