One of America’s most influential cartoonists, Schulz is most famous for his comic strip “Peanuts” and its beloved characters including Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Pig Pen and of course Snoopy.

Along with the comic strip Schulz also created 2 of the best television holiday specials ever – “A Charlie Brown Christmas ” and “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”. In fact ” A Charlie Brown Christmas” will be shown this Tuesday Nov. 28, at 8pm/ET on ABC.

Today is a special day for us “Charlie Browniacs” and join us as we celebrate with a little music, specifically what has become the signature tune of the Peanuts TV specials – “Linus and Lucy.” Here is a nice interpretation of the tune by the group The Divine Comedy. I found this on Youtube. Enjoy.
