What's wrong with A Charlie Brown Christmas? It's produced by a private company, broadcast over a privately owned network. The people who own the network and the people who own Peanuts have freedom of speech, don't they? Even if someone disagrees with the special, said person should respect the owner's rights.
Also, I can't believe that people are getting their panties all in a bunch over Charlie Brown Christmas! Wait, scratch that--you never see the old claymation Christmas Special "Little Drummer Boy" on TV any more. What's wrong with that? If you don't want to watch something, then you can always change the channel. It's what I do when sports come on. We should have the freedom to have Christmas specials that are, you know, actually about Christmas. It's not all Santa Claus, people. Sorry if I got a little fussy, this is just one of the things that irks me.
P.S. The Little Drummer Boy used stop motion, but it wasn't claymation; it was armature animation. O.K. pointless technical comment out of the way.
