Charlie Brown holiday films won't be shown on TV in 2020 — but here's how you can still watch


"Peanuts" films are a staple of the holiday season.

Every season the whole family gathers around to watch classic like "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," and "A Charlie Brown Christmas."

But sadly, in 2020 you won't find them on broadcast television for the first time in decades.

Instead, they'll be exclusively available to watch on Apple TV+ following an expanded partnership with WildBrain, Peanuts Worldwide and Lee Mendelson Film Productions, the press release notes.

Don't worry if you don't have access to Apple TV+ as the streaming service is offering windows of time where the films can be viewed for free. To celebrate the spooky season, "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" can be watched free of charge on on October 30 and November 1.

Fans can watch "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" from November 25 through November 27, while "A Charle Brown Christmas" will be available from December 11 through December 13.

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the comic book, Apple TV+ is releasing a trailer for its upcoming animated series “The Snoopy Show.”

The series reunites the whole “Peanuts” clan – Woodstock, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Franklin, Schroeder, and Peppermint Patty – as they go on some memorable adventures.
