Final cut available on Vimeo: vimeo.com/308488838
A Charlie Brown Christmas has been hailed as a staple of the Christmas season for decades since it aired in '65, and launched a legacy for Peanuts as a franchise and a generation of animators. Ironically, it was commissioned by The Coca-Cola Company, and if not for this mega-corporation, this anti-commercialization-of-Christmas special would not exist. Their sponsorship tags would be cut from subsequent broadcasts, although the studio also used this to their benefit to correct the clearest and most fixable
animation errors they could notice (while adding a few more in, ironically), the end result having been a disaster in the eyes of Melendez and New York executives in the first place.
The version that has been broadcast and remastered since is the revised version, while the original print would not be screened ever again except during special screenings from an vintage 16mm print. One of these prints was offered to ParamountCartoons, member of the Internet Animation Database forums, who dissected as much as he could from this version, and the print was soon shared as an MKV at the Lost Media Wiki for all to enjoy and dissect, and in this video will be compared in split-screen with the changes made in the final cut.

4:41 it makes more sense without the music than with it because music is supposed to interrupt him.

The customer is always right...except when Chuck Norris owns the business.
You know where I can watch all of it now?
This is awesome! Thanks for sharing. I hope more original Peanuts specials, or any original cuts of cartoons for that matter, are surfaced and compared.
Thank you for putting this on. Is there a way to get the original video, or does anyone have the original video online somewhere?
Anyone who proposes to do good must not expect people to roll stones out of his way, but must accept his lot calmly if they even roll a few more upon it.
Is it me or dose the original print version sounds more clear?
Excellent video! Really fascinating! With all the 'touch-ups' they did, I'm surprised they didn't eliminate the second Linus that appears with the other kids after Linus #1 says, "That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown", and Charlie Brown picks up his little tree and walks away from him past the others (where we see Linus #2). I'm also disappointed that they didn't let the original audio of the ending of "Hark!" play out over the 'The End' card.
