‘Charlie Brown’ Celebrates Black History Month on ‘Kimmel’

Franklin Charlie Brown

Ever since 1965’s ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas‘ kicked it all off, the ‘Peanuts’ gang has been known for their calender-themed TV specials. Over the years, they’ve had animated shows dedicated to Halloween, Easter, Thanksgiving and the Super Bowl. And who could forget the 1976 classic ‘It’s Arbor Day, Charlie Brown’? (This really happened.)

But, so far, Charlie Brown and company have never recognized Black History Month. An oversight comedian David Alan Grier did his best to rectify during an appearance on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’

We’ve always felt a little bad for Franklin, being that he is the only black kid in town. But now that we think of him as the only chip in the cookie — well, that doesn’t sound so bad.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time an iconic TV show was able to use cookies to shed light on race relations. Fans of ‘Seinfeld’ will remember the famous “black & white cookie” accord, which you can watch below.
