We're hopeless for Charlie Brown!

Charlie Brown Christmas Forever stamps will be available through the United States Postal Service starting Oct. 1.

USPS announced the stamps celebrating the holiday season will come in a booklet of 20 and feature 10 still frames from the 1965 TV special "A Charlie Brown Christmas" in honor of the classic's 50th anniversary. 

According to USPS, the stamp images were designed by Art Director Antonia Alcala Alexandria VA and include:

  • Charlie Brown holding the sapling that eventually becomes his Christmas tree
  • Charlie Brown and Pigpen with a snowman
  • Snoopy and children ice skating
  • Charlie Brown and friends gathered around the Christmas tree
  • Linus kneeling by the sparsely decorated Christmas tree
  • Charlie Brown checking his mailbox for a Christmas card
  • Charlie Brown and Linus leaning on a snowy brick wall
  • Charlie Brown and Linus standing by the Christmas tree
  • A frustrated Charlie Brown standing in front of Snoopy’s doghouse
  • Charlie Brown decorating the tree in front of the prize-winning lights display on Snoopy's doghouse

USPS said the early October release of the stamps coincide with the Peanuts comic strip debut in seven newspapers on Oct. 2, 1950.
