A Coca-Cola advertisement at the end of A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Status: Partially Found

Coca-Cola commissioned A Charlie Brown Christmas which that special included product placement for the soft drink, most notably sponsor ID's with a unique animated sequence.[1][2] Footage of Linus crashing into the Coca-Cola sign exists on YouTube as well as subsequent specials, including reissue tags incorporating Dolly Madison snack cakes. According to TV Guide advertisements and Lee Mendelson's website, the first new special to be sponsored by Dolly Madison with Coca-Cola is He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown.

The end credits music fades early in the current version because "best wishes" were given to the sponsors of that year's broadcasts, although A Charlie Brown Christmas had "Merry Christmas from the people who bottle Coca-Cola".

It is unclear when the special sequences stopped. However, standard sponsor tags have been shown annually until CBS stopped showing Peanuts specials in 2000.
