Who knew? (I did not) In 1961, four years before the first animated Peanuts TV special (the Christmas special), Charlie Brown and the whole Peanuts gang did car commercials for Ford Motor Company. It would be many years later that Met Life would have Snoopy on their blimp or use any of the Peanuts gang in their TV spots.

Thanks to RoadandTrack.com, you can check out the (2 MINUTE) TV commercial they did in 1961, for the first birthday of the Ford Falcon.

Pretty cool.
