This was the third holiday special for the Peanuts gang, based on characters by Charles M. Schulz and animated by Bill Melendez. The special was also nominated for an Emmy Award back in 1966. Remember Dolly Madison snacks? They were a longtime sponsor for the Peanuts series, I can still remember their Peanuts commercials starring an alter ego of Snoopy, the “Zinger Zapper”, who takes Zingers from the other Peanuts characters.
