As reported by MacRumors, a petition to watch Peanuts specials on TV again has 100,000 signatures. The specials that previously aired on public television channels were recently released as Apple TV + exclusives.
All peanut specials, including It’s the big pumpkin, Charlie Brown, Ein Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and A Charlie Brown Christmas, are currently broadcast exclusively on Apple TV + this year. Apple had signed a deal with Wildbrain, the company behind the Peanuts franchise, to bring all of its specials, as well as new original series, to the streaming platform.
The petition tells Apple and WIldbrain to make the specials available again on public TV as many say they will not be able to watch the specials if they stay exclusively on Apple TV +.
We’ve been celebrating the holidays for over 50 years with the Peanuts Christmas specials broadcast on television – first on CBS, then on ABC. To our shock and dismay, it was announced last night that Apple had stolen the soccer ball from us and claimed the specials on their Apple TV platform, which kept us in the dark as avid fans who grew up with Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang left see.
It’s the big pumpkin, Charlie Brown has already debuted on Apple TV + for paid subscribers, but Apple has announced that the special will be available to stream for free between October 30th and November 1st.

Ein Charlie Brown Thanksgiving will premiere on November 18th, but will also be available for free between November 25th and 27th. A Charlie Brown Christmas will debut on December 4th but will be streamed for free between December 11th and 13th.
It’s good that Apple is making these specials free for a limited time, but the timing makes Peanuts fans unhappy too. Many usually watch A Charlie Brown Christmas on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, but the special can only be streamed for free more than a week in advance.
Viewers must still have an Apple TV + compatible device to stream. The streaming service is currently available on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, as well as some smart TVs and streaming sticks. While this covers many, there are still those who might miss the specials entirely if they don’t have one of these gadgets.
