Grateful Giveaways #1: The Peanuts Prize Package

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 25, 2011 · 1,068 comments


Happiness is ... starting off today's awesome giveaways with Snoopy and the Gang!! This one will be sure to put a smile on the face any Snoopy or Peanuts fan ... or anyone who has fond memories of the saying, "Good Grief Charlie Brown"!

The Peanuts comic strip by Charles Schulz that began in 1950 and lasted for 50 years, went way beyond the newspaper. Snoopy has become one of the most beloved comic strip characters, along with Charlie Brown and the whole gang of Peanuts characters. Holiday TV Specials such as A Charlie Brown Christmas and It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown have become timeless classics, and must-see shows during holiday time, and they continue to delight each year.

Also- be sure to check out Peanuts.com ... a wonderful collection of everything from Vintage Snoopy to current Peanuts Gang happenings. This comic strip that has warmed the hearts of so many children and grown ups alike, continues to do so today.

What more can you say about The Peanuts? I grew up watching the Charlie Brown holiday specials every year growing up, and it's a tradition that I now get to share with my own kids. I love that they look forward to them as much as I do!

We watched the new Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown DVD last night as a family, and it was absolutely adorable. And the coffee table book is absolutely amazing. There are so many little surprised tucked in it -- my kids have spent hours paging through it.

Peanuts Worldwide is giving, one lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a prize package that includes The Peanuts Collection Coffee Table Book, a Hallmark Happiness is Hanging Out Together Figurine, a Hallmark Happiness is a Full Tummy Lunch Bag, Snoopy t-shirt and a Blue-Ray/DVD called Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown.

My favorite memory is thinking how crazy Lucy was with all her “advice”, but now I think I do the same thing  But I don’t charge.

I learned that Lucy's psychiatric help sign went from .05 to .47...I thought it always stayed at .05.

My favorite memory of the Peanuts has been watching it every year with my papa bear (dad). We would sit and watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, The Charlie Brown Christmas Special, The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Its the Easter Beagle Charlie Brown etc. However, we would not watch it only once...no, no, no, we would watch them every time/night the episodes were on. From doing this I can quote and pretty much recite the lines from the movies. I don't think I can choose just one scene or episode, i love all of the shows as a whole. However, the parts that make me chuckle the most are:

During the Christmas Special the Charlie Brown tree never has the same amount of limbs, first it at three, then it has five and the number fluctuates every time it appears. Also, same show, Lucy's psychiatrist booth sign. Always says something different "The doctor is in" "The doctor is really in" The is in really"
Another part of this show would be when Charlie Browns baby sister, Sally Brown is creating her Christmas list and at the end she says "All I want is what I have coming to me. All I want is my fair share."
And of course when Charlie Brown learns the lesson about Christmas. "That's what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown."

The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown:
When Linus is so very dedicated and wholeheartedly searching for the Great Pumpkin. Example: "Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see."
It is simply the cutest part.

Those are of course only brief portions of my favorites. The list could read for awhile.

Charlie Brown is by far the best show growing up with, not to mention the memories and traditions the shows have started between my father and I.

***Happiness is morning and evening, daytime and nighttime too. For happiness is anyone and anything at all that's loved by you.*** <3

I know it is probably the most common memory, but I will always remember the scene with Charlie Brown's Christmas tree!
