Lee Mendelson (1933-2019)

Legendary producer of the iconic animated Peanuts specials, the most famous of which is A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965), for which he wrote the lyrics to the show's signature song and now seasonal standard, “Christmas Time Is Here.” Having significantly impacted the nature of holiday television programming, Mendelson fittingly left us on Christmas Day.
