In 1975 - ten years after A Charlie Brown Christmas
, the first Charlie Brown/Peanuts TV special, originally aired - the folks at CBS aired two more specials: the 13th and 14th in a long line of classic installments. The early '75 installment was the holiday special Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown
. But in October of that year we were introduced to one of the most popular non-holiday specials made for the Charlie Brown/Peanuts series: You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown
