Behold the power of a petition. Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving and Christmas specials will air on TV thanks to fans stepping up and speaking out. Apple TV+ recently acquired the rights to the Peanuts holiday specials and announced that people would have to subscribe to the service to watch the annual specials. Apple changed course and has now announced a deal with PBS after thousands called for the specials to air on broadcast TV.
Apple announced a new team-up with PBS for ad-free broadcasts of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on November 22 and A Charlie Brown Christmas on December 13 at 7:30 pm local time.
