As Charlie Brown says: “We’ve got another holiday to worry about.”

But Peanuts fans can rejoice this holiday season! The classic specials “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” are coming to PBS.

Earlier this year, Apple announced its streaming service, Apple TV+, as the exclusive home for the beloved specials. Now, PBS and Apple are partnering to return the programs to traditional TV for a special ad-free broadcast so families can enjoy Lucy yanking the football away from Charlie Brown.

“A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” will air on Sunday, November 22 at 7:30 p.m. on VPM PBS and VPM PBS KIDS. It will also be available for free on Apple TV+ from November 25 through November 27.

“A Charlie Brown Christmas” will air on Sunday, December 13 at 7:30 p.m. on VPM PBS and VPM PBS KIDS. It also will be available for free on Apple TV+ from December 11 through December 13.
