Turkey Day just isn’t the same without “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” and the special wasn’t going to air on TV this year. Luckily, a new deal puts it on PBS for one night, and it’s available to watch for free online for a limited time. 

After a petition demanding the specials return to TV garnered over 250,000 signatures, Apple TV+ teamed up with PBS to air “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. EDT. 

For those who prefer streaming, “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” will be available Apple TV+ for free from November 25 until November 27. That gives Peanuts fans three days, which includes Thanksgiving and Black Friday, to watch the special.

“A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” debuted on Apple TV+ on Nov. 18, and the special is available to subscribers year-round. Subscriptions to Apple TV+ start with a free 7-day trial and cost $4.99 a month after that.

The Emmy Award-winning special follows Charlie Brown on Thanksgiving. As he prepares to head to his grandmother’s house, Peppermint Patty suddenly invites herself over with Marcie and Franklin, expecting a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Can Charlie Brown handle two Thanksgivings?

The 1973 special joins “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” as an Apple exclusive. Last month, the streamer made the Halloween special free to watch for a few days. In December, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” starts streaming on Dec. 4 for subscribers. Once again, the holiday special will be free to view for a few days from Dec. 11 until Dec. 13 while PBS will air it on Dec. 13.

2020 marks the first year in decades that the Charlie Brown holiday specials aren’t on broadcast TV. They aired on CBS until 2001, at which point ABC grabbed the rights. Now Apple TV+ holds the exclusive rights to the Peanuts specials.
