TV Quote of the Day (Charlie Brown and Lucy, on ‘All This Christmas Business’)

Lucy Van Pelt [voice of Tracy Stratford]: “I know how you feel about all this Christmas business, getting depressed and all that. It happens to me every year. I never get what I really want. I always get a lot of stupid toys or a bicycle or clothes or something like that.”

Charlie Brown [voice of Peter Robbins]: “What is it you want?”

Lucy: “Real estate.”— A Charlie Brown Christmas, air date Dec. 9, 1965, teleplay by Charles M. Schulz, directed by Bill Melendez

From five years ago, my post on the first airing of this iconic special.

As I researched this current post, I realized, with a start, that the actors whose voices were used for the children in the show are now in their late 50s and early 60s. My, how time flies!
