Perfect cutoff point on the clip, too
I have a CD someone from Starbucks gave me of the music from this special. It has Charlie Brown and the gang, and a big 'ol Starbucks logo on it... ("Have yourself, a very corporate Christmas") ... I was like "meh ok thanks"... and put it away for a few years, still shrinkwrapped.
One year I happened to think of it, and I busted it out and played it on Christmas morning and it was unbelievably perfect. It made Christmas feel like when I was a kid again. Whoever did the music for this is a damn genius. For reals. 5 stars for that alone. Another 5 stars for awesome childhood nostalgia.
Grab this CD before Christmas, and put it on while you're unwrapping gifts. Make everyone cocoa for mega bonus points.
cognitivedissonance, that is fucking awesome. Considering the guy died so young and is one of my musical heroes I am truly happy that you were able to witness such a thing.
One of my favorite things from the comic strip or the TV specials was always the parts with Charlie Brown ruminating under a starry sky.
Yeah.. remember when you were a kid and you could actually see stars in the sky at night? Now I have to drive 100 miles away to see them.
Also, did anyone else read the title as "Leenoose Explains Christmas", as in Torvalds? I have to go re-evaluate my life now. Bye!
The two pronunciations are always superpositioned over one another until observation causes one of the waveforms to emerge.

How does this voice acting just feel so perfect.
Linus then wound up changing his name to Garrison and moved on to a successful stint in radio.
The stuff of legend.
This is Epic.
Funnily enough, the Scrubs version of this is also Epic, even though I don't like that show.
Anybody remember the Rwandan genocide in the 90's?
Were you dropped on your head as a baby or something?
As close to a perfect Christmas special as you're ever likely to see. To me this forms a holy trinity of Christmas specials with Mickey's Christmas Carol and Chuck Jones' Grinch, which get watched each year at my house.
