Table of Contents Before
the advent of YouTube and other video sharing venue via the Internet, broadcast television was THE medium for visual
entertainment other than an occasional jaunt to the movie theater. You either watched shows when they first aired or
hope to catch them on reruns. TV Guide was THE
go-to publication for all things television. Out of print now, it was for many of us the schedule setter
for Saturday morning cartoons and Prime Time comedy shows.
crossword puzzles were always my mother's favorite Sunday evening pastime. It's not that she couldn't handle the
New York Times' notoriously challenging crossword, it's just that
The Evening Capital newspaper
didn't have a Sunday edition so we didn't get the puzzle. My father worked as the classified advertising manager at
The Evening Capital so we received a free subscription tot he paper.
This particular crossword puzzle
appeared in the edition of TV Guide that featured the first-ever airing of "A Charlie Brown Christmas"
which I bought on eBay, so I figured I might as well scan and post it. Enjoy!

avid crossword puzzler, but I am now a daily worker of crossword puzzles and once a week I even create a custom crossword
