Jelly Beans: A Versatile Foodstuff

Watched A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving tonight. It is so very much the most underrated of the Peanuts holiday specials. Those heartless fucks at ABC cut the crap out of it to add in more commercials for shit like Extreme Makeover Extra Maudlin Home Edition. They removed the entirety of the Snoopy/Woodstock carnivorous/cannibalistic feast! Feh.

Not much to say about this that hasn't been said before, but I did want to take a second to give some recognition to the fact that this show contains what is probably the greatest toast sequence you'll ever see in any entertainment medium ever.

Oh, Woodstock. How can you not tell that you've grabbed Snoopy's ear instead of a slice of bread? It is an absurdity!

One question is weighing heavily on my mind and it's this: Why is Franklin made to sit on one side of the table all by himself? That's not right. You can have a dog serving jellybeans, but the black kid can't bump elbows with Whitey? Is that how it is? For shame, Chuck. For shame.
