A Charlie Brown Christmas reborn as a mobile and tablet app


Whether you have a mobile phone, tablet, iPhone or Android device, you can get yourself a copy of A Charlie Brown Christmas. Yes, the classic 1960s festive animation is back for the modern era.

Yes, you can help Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the entire Peanuts gang find the true meaning of Christmas with this official app, narrated by Peter Robbins, the original voice of Charlie Brown and using original dialogue and digitally remastered illustrations, animation, and music, all optimised for mobile devices.

But obviously this isn't the original film, this one throws in some interactivity. That includes the option to decorate your own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree, participate in the Lights and Display Contest to unlock rewards, play Schroeder's piano, finger paint with the gang, go carolling with the Peanuts choir and much more.

'Big' kids might find the educational aspects a little basic, but if you have kids, that's just another reason to indulge. Another downside might be the price. As apps go, this isn't cheap – £4.99 is the price. A promo video below.
