A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

tags: , , , , ,
If you are like me, you do not have a television, so you are missing all the special holiday programming. This sweet video is a late one created by the late, great Charles M. Schulz about celebrating Thanksgiving on a ping-pong table. Of course, it includes really fine jazz as background music — does anyone know who wrote and performed the background music and how I can get it? [20:18].

If that video was deleted by YouTube, this one probably survived, because it is a condensed version [4:55];


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

  1. That would be the Vince Guaraldi Trio, which did the music for all those early Charlie Brown animated specials. I can’t find a recording with just the Thanksgiving music, but at least some of it appears to be included on Charlie Brown’s Holiday Hits.
    I can personally recommend A Charlie Brown Christmas; when my wife hauls out the Christmas recordings for non-stop play in order to instill the proper amount of holiday cheer, that one’s my favorite.

    I believe all the Peanuts jazz pieces were done by Vince Guaraldi and his trio.
