What soft drink company initially sponsored "A Charlie Brown Christmas"?

  • Dr. Pepper
  • Pepsi-Cola
  • Coca-Cola correct

    We've all seen "A Charlie Brown Christmas" at least once. This holiday classic first aired on Dec. 9, 1965 and has been on television every year since. But it almost didn't make it. Coca-Cola had already rejected a program that centered on Charlie Brown's baseball team, and creater Charles Schulz had to work quickly to get the Christmas special ready in time for the holiday.
