A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and A Charlie Brown Christmas

Last year, the internet was up in arms when Apple TV+ announced it would have the exclusive rights to the Peanuts holiday specials, essentially removing them from traditional broadcast TV.

Apple TV+ will continue to stream “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” as well as make them available for free on PBS.

Those iconic specials will air this year on PBS and PBS Kids at the following times:

  • “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” will air on Sunday, Nov. 21 at 6:30 p.m. CT
  • “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will air on Sunday, Dec. 19 at 6:30 p.m. CT.

Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang will also celebrate the holidays with a new TV special this year.

Apple TV+ is creating a special for New year’s Eve called “For Auld Lang Syne,” the first Peanuts TV special without Charlie Brown’s or Snoopy’s names in the title, Variety reported.

Premiering on Dec. 10, the new special is the second New Year’s Eve-themed Peanuts installment after “Happy New Year, Charlie Brown,” which debuted on CBS in 1986.
