    Thanks Bill- you made Christmas season that much more special. I still watch a Charlie Brown Christmas every year.

    Yep, a great American classic.

    I grew up loving Snoopy and the Peanuts gang and even now that I'm older I still love those comics and shows. I cried so hard when Charles Schulz died and now I'm sad all over again for Bill's death. I'm glad the cartoons, comics, and shows will all live on but he will definitely be missed. Thanks for the memories Bill. RIP
