“Happiness” – You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown
Music and Lyrics: Clark Gesner
Comic strip Peanuts by Charles Schulz first ran on this day in 1950 introducing the world to the good-natured but hopeless Charlie Brown and his friends, upon which this show is based. The gang describe what happiness means to them in this sweet number which tops off this musical like a cherry on a sundae. Surround yourself with the little things that make you happy today because after all, that’s what life is all about.
