CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - It has been 50 years since Charlie Brown dragged that hapless tree back to his school's production stage. And now, the U.S. Postal Service will help commemorate "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

A booklet of 20 stamps will be released Thursday and features ten still frames from the classic TV holiday special.

"A Charlie Brown Christmas" features characters from Charles Schulz's "Peanuts" comic strip, which was first published in the Chicago Tribune!

In November, an all new special will also air called "It's your 50th Birthday, Charlie Brown," where Hollywood stars will describe what the holiday special means to them.
