A Charlie Brown Feast: Apple TV+ has thrown us a nostalgia lifeline to be thankful for, celebrating the 50th anniversary of “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.”
The streaming giant joyfully declared that the cherished holiday gem will be up for grabs on Apple TV+ for free on Saturday, Nov. 18, and Sunday, Nov. 19.
“In the Peanuts time-honored classic, Peppermint Patty extends the invite to everyone at Charlie Brown’s for Thanksgiving, even though he’s off to visit his grandma,” a streamer press release happily reveals. “Snoopy takes charge, crafting his unique Thanksgiving feast with a little help from his pals.”
This Emmy-laden holiday special, showcasing the antics of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the whole gang, initially graced screens on November 20, 1973.
This special treat followed other holiday must-sees, such as the debut of “A Charlie Brown Christmas” in 1965 and “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” in 1966.
“Peanuts,” the syndicated comic strip crafted by the genius Charles M. Schulz, garnered widespread love. Running from 1950 to 2000, its legacy continued through republishing previous strips after its conclusion.
Schulz, the maestro behind Peanuts, bid adieu in 2000, leaving a timeless legacy at the age of 77.
