The U.S. Post Office is celebrating the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas by issuing a set of stamps depicting scenes from the holiday classic.

The Charlie Brown Christmas Forever stamps will be available on October 1st and the booklets will contain 20 stamps (two of each design) featuring 10 still frames of the Emmy and Peabody-winning 1965 special that instantly became a Christmas staple in American households.


The stamp images include:
Charlie Brown holding the sapling that eventually becomes his Christmas tree; Charlie Brown and Pigpen with a snowman; Snoopy and children ice skating; the cast of the program gathered around the Christmas tree; Linus kneeling by the sparsely decorated Christmas tree; Charlie Brown checking his mailbox for a Christmas card; Charlie Brown and Linus leaning on a snowy brick wall; Charlie Brown and Linus standing by the Christmas tree; a frustrated Charlie Brown standing in front of Snoopy’s doghouse; and, Charlie Brown decorating the tree in front of the prize-winning lights display on Snoopy's doghouse.

Customers may pre-order the stamps now for delivery shortly after Oct. 1.
