In 1965, the world was blessed with one of the best Christmas movies of all time, a gem that never gets old. A Charlie Brown Christmas was created by the legendary Charles M. Schultz and is based on the characters from the famous Peanuts Comic Strip. On top of being a classic Christmas movie, it also provided one of the best Christmas soundtracks of all time. When the piano starts playing the jazzy theme song from the film almost everyone of all ages can’t help but dance around like the characters 3,4 and 5.

In the animated movie, Charlie Brown is depressed and begins to question the meaning of Christmas. He feels Christmas has lost its luster to commercialism. Throughout the movie, we meet some classic Peanuts Characters as well as some new ones in the “dance scene” which is the highlight moment in the film. Here is the full list of characters that appeared in A Charlie Brown Christmas.
