It’s Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown!
I have recently received a letter from Lee Mendelson (Lee Mendelson Film Productions, Inc) that I am very excited and humbled about sharing:
“We are pleased to let you know that we wish to re-use your voicing of Lucy from “The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show ep. 10″ to be included in “It’s Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown!”
I am excited and honored to be a part of the 50 Years-A Charlie Brown Christmas.
For the past 6 years since I had my lil peanut Emma, Brad Kesten (Charlie Brown from the series) and I have been doing comic conventions representing Charlie Brown and Lucy. It is always beyond a privilege to meet thousands and thousands of strangers who are so excited to talk to us and share their stories of appreciation from growing up with Charlie Brown. They say how they watched it as a child, and now share it with their kids and grandchildren. They bring cherished souvenirs for us to sign, and tell us it not only is a fond memory of their childhood but continue to love and share as an adult.
It never ceases to amaze me that I got the opportunity to be part of something so cherished and loved by all.
Note: As a child, Angela worked on many Lee Mendelson productions including Garfield and Friends, and is the longest running voice actor to play Lucy Van Pelt on the Saturday morning cartoon series “The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show” (1983-1985).
