How's it going my gumdrops? Have you decided on whether or not to create your own music playlist for Thanksgiving? If not, you really should. It would be a different and more interesting approach to celebrating Thanksgiving Day than ALWAYS listening to Christmas Music for 2-3 months nonstop.
After learning about our local radio stations playing Christmas Music on HALLOWEEN, I wanted to scream and punch someone for skipping over EVERY other holiday to rush Christmas. Halloween, Election Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Krampus Day, Saint Nicholas Day, Hanukkah, and Winter Solstice ALL come BEFORE Christmas Day.
And YET Christmas takes precedence over EVERY fall and winter holiday.
What was that saying? "It's always Marcia, Marcia, Marcia"? Yes, I really love you Christmas, but you are THE Marcia Brady of ALL the holidays; Christmas Day is the attention whore of all the holidays because it demands the most attention.
Hopefully, you were able to think of at least 1 thing, that you are thankful for. This is that time of season, when everybody rushes over to the supermarkets to buy turkeys, hams, ducks (if you love eating Duck a l'Orange like my mother), dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, cakes, pies, etc.
I will most likely be trying to sleep in, while my family worries me about helping to clean the house for 2 pretentious, opportunistic, attention whores to free load. We hope they will NOT self-invite other people to OUR house like they did the last 2-3 years in a row. You know the Peppermint Patty Routine from Peanuts, right?
Speaking of Peanuts, I know chances are highly great that ABC will be airing A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and This Is America, Charlie Brown sometime this week. Both of these Peanuts episodes have to deal with Thanksgiving Day, which would explain why ABC always airs them together, during this time of the year.
I grew up watching the Peanuts franchise on TV. As a child and adolescent from both the 1980's and '90s, I don't recall of EVER watching This Is America, Charlie Brown.
This Is America, Charlie Brown was supposedly an 8-episode miniseries on CBS from 1988 to 1989. Since it aired on CBS, this would explain why I have never seen, much less heard of it.
CBS was not a channel I frequently watched. Most of its shows were boring. In a way, the shows still are today except more contrived. However, I watch CBS now because of our local news and a few shows.
As I was saying, This Is America, Charlie Brown was an 8-episode miniseries during the late 1980's on CBS. "The Mayflower Voyagers" is episode 1 of this miniseries. It was not until 2008, that ABC began airing it after A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.
This sounds about right because I didn't see "The Mayflower Voyagers" episode, until my mid to late 20's. I always wondered where this episode came from. Now, we ALL know. If you were unaware of This Is America, Charlie Brown, do NOT feel bad.
I am sharing "The Mayflower Voyagers" episode because this is something obscure from the Peanuts franchise. Anyway, here's episode 1 of This Is America, Charlie Brown for today's Cartoon Sunday.
