Weekend - Charlie Brown specials to air on PBS”

The Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and Christmas specials are going to air for free on broadcast TV after all - right here on WJCT Public Television.

A Charlie Brown Christmas and A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving will be airing on PBS Kids at specific dates and times during the holiday season, but not It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, the iconic Halloween classic.

After Apple TV+ acquired the rights to the beloved Peanuts holiday specials, online petitions came pouring in from viewers who were used to watching the animated specials on network TV.

Because of the backlash, AppleTV+ has decided maybe they made a mistake and are allowing both holiday specials to be shown on PBS- "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" special will air on Sunday, November 22 at 7:30pm ET, while the Christmas one will air on December 13.

Earlier in the day, Apple TV+ announced another holiday treat in the form of Mariah Carey's upcoming holiday special, which is appropriately titled Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special.

A Charlie Brown Christmas premiered 55 years ago on CBS on December 9, 1965. While it's too late for "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", fans can rejoice to know that the other two holiday classics will be free to watch this year. The special will be available for free on the platform from November 25 through November 27. The Peanuts gang will also deck the halls with the premiere of "A Charlie Brown Christmas", streaming on Apple TV+ on December 4. It will be available for free from December 11 through December 13. It won a Peabody Award and an Emmy award, and spawned dozens of "Peanuts" TV specials, series and movies.
