I’ve been writing a bunch of Rankin/Bass reviews lately, including one covering ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (1974), which I discussed last Monday. Well, we’re mixing things up today with a Christmas special that was not made by Rankin/Bass, It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown from 1992, a short and succinct title if there ever was one. Unlike the much-loved A Charlie Brown Christmas from 1965, there is a good reason why this one is not as fondly remembered.Continue reading It’s Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown (1992) Review
It may be March, but Mother Duck and I decided to work our way through a Christmas special marathon over the previous weekend. The vast majority were Rankin/Bass, along with two Charlie Brown Christmas shorts. Since I had so much fun reviewing The Year Without a Santa Claus and A Miser Brothers’ Christmas, reviews for many of these Christmas specials are imminent (I mean, they might not be ready right away, but they’re coming…). The movies/shorts that I’ll be discussing are all ones we had never seen before. Some weren’t too bad, while others were…kind of painful. Ah yes, nothing quite screams “Christmas spirit” like writing critical reviews about Christmas specials that aren’t even intended for my age group…several months after December!
