Bill Melendez: 1916-2008

Bill Melendez, the director of many cartoons including A Charlie Brown Christmas as well as the voice of Snoopy and Woodstock, has passed away at age 91. He was the only person Charles M. Schulz authorized to animate his characters.

Melendez won an Oscar and six Emmys, he animated Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny, and he founded a very successful animation company. But all I can think of is A Charlie Brown Christmas. I know A Charlie Brown Christmas better than any 30 minutes of real life.
