Those who were irritated by Apple’s purchase of the Peanuts holiday specials, which made Apply TV+ the only place to see them, were able to rest easier now that they announce their return to mainstream television.
Hundreds of millions petitioned for the reinstatement of animated specials like “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” which have been airing for free since 1965. Without seeing any reruns near the holidays, it just did not feel right to most people. After hearing the public outrage, Apple has partnered with PBS to bring both specials back to free television broadcast. Last year on November, PBS and PBS KIDS began to broadcast “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.” “A Charlie Brown Christmas” also aired late last year on December 13.
