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.

I Want to watch the original ‘65 print of A Charlie Brown Christmas where did you find this?
How did you get the original print version?

god created jesus toencourage peace when that didnt work he created Chuck Norris to enforce it
Can you link to the print version on the lost media wiki
Wow, thank you so much, I never seen the original print before, but thank you for showing everybody what's different about these versions.
Terrific comparison! You caught way more things than I did! One other thing I did catch, though, is that originally there was an error where there was no snow at first on Lucy's psychiatrist desk in the wide shot, then it suddenly has snow for her to brush off. Also, and I admit this is pedantic, but in a few cases, such as the pigpen scene, it isn't that it was "reanimated", but re-SHOT using the same animation and cels. Again, this is great, thanks for posting!

The world cares very little about what a man or woman knows; it is what a man or woman is able to do that counts.
Is the Original on DVD??
"Snoopy's howl is altered to sound less haunted" is a very accurate description but at the same time the sentence itself sounds hilarious for some reason. They de-ghostified Snoopy. (Thank you so much for this video, it is so cool to see the comparison side to side!)
