A very 'Special' retro T-shirt


We don't plan to do much Black Friday shopping, but our morning RSS crawl turned up a gift we must have right this second.

Thursday, we engaged in a little "Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" nostalgia, and shared our fond memories of the "CBS Special Presentation" promo that aired from the early 1970s to early 1990s. It signaled it was time for old-fashioned fun with Snoopy and the gang.

Well, the Web site Retroist reports that you can actually own a shirt modeled on the CBS special animation.

It ain't cheap, at $28, but who can resist the pitch:


You can almost hear the drums and horns break in as the family gathers around the TV for a night of holiday specials. (Think Frosty or Rudolph.)


The shirt is available from Wire and Twine. And watch the intro here.
