Kudos to the parents at Apple TV+ for sharing the Peanuts pleasure: Although they’d purchased unique rights to all the enduring Charlie Brown vacation specials, they’ve now agreed to let two of the classics air on PBS this yr.
“A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” will broadcast Sunday evening, Nov. 22; “A Charlie Brown Christmas” on Sunday, Dec. 13.
To be truthful, the streaming platform was additionally providing free entry to every present for 3 days within the run-up to their respective holidays, so nobody needed to subscribe to view any of the exhibits.
However households with no web entry had been nonetheless out of luck — and so missed out on “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” this Halloween.
However now Apple’s relented — good for them.
So, whereas we’re nonetheless going through a vacation season of restricted journey, quarantined family members and outlawed events, separated households can nonetheless share an previous custom by tuning in to neglect about this yr’s chaos and benefit from the nostalgia of a “Peanuts’” vacation.
