Christmas and Halloween are surely the most hyped festivals of the year but let’s not ignore the delightful time Thanksgiving brings every year. Firstly, there’s food and secondly, what more do you need to chill? For me, food is quite enough to spend quality time with my family while watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. But where can we watch it? Is it airing on TV? Or streaming on OTT platforms? Let’s cover all about it.
Today it is more like a tradition to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving with your family. It has been almost 50 years and people still love to watch it again and again. The movie was released in 1973 on CBS and since then it has been airing on the same channel for decades (literally). However, something happened last year that shook all the fans of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.
In 2001, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving moved from airing on CBS to ABC and till 2019 it only aired on ABC. Last year, ABC lost all its rights to air the classic Peanuts movie meanwhile Apple TV+ managed to secure its rights, and hence 2020 was the first year when A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving was not aired on TV, rather it was available to be watched on Apple TV+.
Is A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on TV this year?
Let’s just hope that we can watch it on TV this time. It was crazy when no one could watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on TV. PBS and PBS Kids can manage to air the movie, so there’s a possibility. Along with this Thanksgiving movie, 2020 was also the first time when The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, and all the Peanuts movies weren’t aired at all. This time Apple TV+ will be streaming the Peanuts content and we just have to wait for the official release date.
