It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown Goes Off The Air

Since its debut 57 years ago, the special aired on either CBS or ABC every year until 2020 when Apple TV+ acquired the rights to all the Peanuts catalog. There was a public outcry that year after it was announced that It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown would not air on television for the first time, even though it was available to stream on Apple TV+.

In 2021, Apple TV+ teamed up with PBS and PBS Kids to air the holiday special on TV, which delights the Peanuts gang fans!
