Captures the magic, 9 December 2003
Author: RNMorton from West Chester, Pa

Charles Schulz is terribly missed by all of us Peanuts fans. This is an excellent posthumous work. Main theme is Rerun's search for a dog for Christmas, but we get to see each of the main Peanuts characters doing their thing in a Christmas setting. Not all the Charlie Brown specials have been outstanding through the years, but this one can be put right up there with the best. Kudos. 9/10
