This special debuted on CBS in 1965 to critical and commercial success, much to the surprise of the network executives. It was produced on a shoestring budget, resulting in many quirks and flaws, like choppy animation and poor sound quality. Creator Charles Schultz believed that this only added to the charm and authenticity of the special and refused offers to have these “problems” fixed.
