A Christmas Classic

[Excerpt from A Charlie Brown Christmas]:

Schroeder & Lucy

Schroeder: This is the music I’ve selected for the Christmas play.
[Schroeder plays Fur Elise]
Lucy: What kind of Christmas music is that?
Schroeder: Beethoven Christmas music.
Lucy: What has Beethoven got to do with Christmas? Everyone talks about how “great” Beethoven was. Beethoven wasn’t so great.
[Schroeder stops playing]
Schroeder: What do you mean Beethoven wasn’t so great?
Lucy: He never got his picture on bubblegum cards, did he? Have you ever seen his picture on a bubblegum card? Hmmm? How can you say someone is great who’s never had his picture on bubblegum cards?
Schroeder: Good grief.

Well Lucy, let’s just say it’s obvious you were speaking in 1965 and not 2009:

Beethoven on a Bubblegum Card!
2009 Allen and Ginter #83

MERRY CHRISTMAS, CHARLIE BROWN!
