I WANT A DOG FOR CHRISTMAS, CHARLIE BROWN! - This holiday season, ABC will again air the PEANUTS Christmas special “I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown,” produced and animated by the same team that gave us the other, now classic cartoon specials based on Charles M. SchulzÕs famed comic strip. “I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown” will air as part of Disney|ABCÕs special “25 Days of Christmas” programming event, FRIDAY, DEC. 21 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network. “I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown!” centers on ReRun, the lovable but ever-skeptical younger brother of Linus and Lucy. It’s Christmas vacation and, as usual, ReRunÕs big sister is stressing him out, so he decides to turn to his best friend, Snoopy, for amusement and holiday cheer. However his faithful but unpredictable beagle companion has plans of his own, giving ReRun reason to ask Snoopy to invite his canine brother Spike for a visit. When Spike shows up, it looks like ReRun will have a dog for Christmas after allÉ but then the real trouble begins. (© 2003 United Feature Syndicate Inc.)
