| Yes, Virginia, there is a Charlie Brown
Peanuts director Bill Melendez takes a time-out with this Xmas special based on a true story, but doesn't stray too far from the Peanuts style. He doesn't stray at all, as a matter of fact.

Virginia is a little girl living in New York City in 1897. She is mocked by her classmates for still believing in Santa Claus so she writes a letter to a newspaper editor asking for confirmation. He replies with a resoundingly 'yes'.

It looks and sounds a LOT like Peanuts with the simple animation and phonetic dialogue. I could swear I saw ol' Chuck among those kids too. File this somewhere in the middle of your Xmas viewing list.
