25 Days of Winter Holiday Trivia: Day 1

Last year, in addition to my weekly Friday 80s Flashback posts, I shared one holiday song per day from December 1 through December 25 (in 2012's 25 Days of Holiday Music). This year, for a change of pace, I will be sharing one trivia per day from now through December 25.

As it took me some time to decide on the holiday theme, I'm kicking off this new feature rather late on December 1. So we'll start with a relatively simple question.

Vince Guaraldi Trio's "Linus and Lucy" had its television debut on the very first animated Peanuts special: A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965). The song has since been a part of just about every Peanuts television show (and a whole host of other Peanuts-related media appearances). However, the tune was not composed for A Charlie Brown Christmas.

So, what was the project for which Vince Guaraldi originally wrote and recorded "Linus and Lucy"? Feel free to submit your answer in the comments!

It was composed for a studio album by the Vince Guaraldi Trio. The title was something like "Impressions of a Boy named Charlie Brown."
