Should Charlie Brown have been arrested? (see inside)
A Charlie Brown Christmas was first aired in 1965 and has been a Christmas icon for the last 50 plus years. Of those 50 years, I have watched its rerun each year for at least the last 25 years. Out of all those years of watching, I never noticed that Charlie Brown never paid for his scrawny Christmas tree. He just picked it up off the lot and took off with it to his home. Question: was this just a blooper in this cartoon by Mr. Shultz or is it too late to file charges for theft, against Charlie Brown? Or, should we just pretend that we saw nothing and let it go. Ho Ho Ho!
