One of our favorite podcasts has a new episode online! This week's episode is about A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, the 1973 Emmy Award-winning prime-time animated TV special based upon the popular comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. Currently, the special is aired every November in prime time on the ABC network.




A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (1973)





The Retroist is a fantastic podcast, and it's long-been a personal favorite among the Atari I/O Moderators for many years. I hope you'll find the time this weekend to maybe put on a great game, tune in and listen to this great podcast. Maybe it'll become a weekend routine!

Here's what The Retroist had to say about the episode:



Retroist Podcast – Episode 195 – A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving


View this episode at The Retroist


On today’s show I talk all about the holiday classic, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. I have tried to release this episode during past Thanksgiving seasons, but it never came together. I hope you enjoy it. I start off talking about how special this holiday is when it is spent with the people who make it special, then I move onto the special. I talk about the creator of the Peanuts, the producers, directors, animators, plot, voice talent, music and much more.


Music on the show was provided by Peachy (the Burt Bacharach of Wales), if you have musical needs, why not contact and “like” him on his Facebook Page.


If you have a moment please stop by iTunes or wherever you might download the show and perhaps give the show a quick rating. It is very much appreciated.


If you have any suggestions for topics you would like for me to cover in the future, email them to me at retroist@retroist.com. If you would like more retro fun, you can also follow me on the Twitter and on the Facebook.

The original thee "Christmas", "Great Pumpkin", and "Thanksgiving" are classics.  They have a charm you don't see anymore.  Very comic-strippy -- moving from gag to gag.
