“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” won’t air on TV this year. On Monday, it was revealed that ABC lost the airing rights to Apple TV+. Luckily, the streaming service will offer a chance to see the Halloween special for free.

While Apple TV+ is normally $4.99 per month, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” will stream for free from Oct. 30 to Nov. 1. Those who pay for the service, however, have access to watch the Peanuts Halloween special whenever they want.

“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” made in 1966, follows a Halloween with the Peanuts characters. Linus believes in the Great Pumpkin, a magical being who rises from the pumpkin patch on Oct. 31 to deliver toys to children. Meanwhile, Charlie Brown attends a costume party, but he wasn’t invited for his personality.

Apple TV+ will do the same free streaming period for the rest of the 2020 Charlie Brown holiday specials.

“A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” releases on Nov. 18, but the free streaming period is Nov. 25 until Nov. 27. “A Charlie Brown Christmas” launches on December 4. The holiday special can be watched online for free from Dec. 11 until Dec. 13. 

The Charlie Brown holiday specials have aired on TV every year since 1965, Vulture reports. They used to air on CBS until ABC won the rights in 2001.

Apple TV+ has already had success with Peanuts characters. The streaming service released “Snoopy in Space” last year on the day the platform launched. It was well-received, even earning a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Short-Format Children's Program.
