The Thanksgiving classic will also be available to stream for free on Apple TV from November 25th-27th, according to a press release obtained by Fox News.

Peanuts fans will have even more ways to watch Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the gang on their holiday adventures as Apple and PBS team up for special, ad-free broadcasts of "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas".

Last month, Apple TV+ became the new home to the beloved Peanuts holiday specials.

"A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" will air on PBS and PBS Kids on November 22 at 7:30 p.m. ET, while "A Charlie Brown Christmas" will air on the stations December 13 at 7:30 p.m., according to a news release.

While "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" was on only Apple TV+ this year, "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas" will air on PBS and PBS Kids - as well as on Apple TV+ - as part of the deal, Deadline said. Prior to that, the specials aired on CBS.

After hundreds of thousands signed protest petitions online, Apple reversed course. The special will be available for free on the platform from November 25 through November 27. Nonsubscribers should mark their calendars because this is the only special that does not air during the actual holiday; it is scheduled to be free from December 11 to December 13.

Earlier in the day, Apple TV+ announced another holiday treat in the form of Mariah Carey's upcoming holiday special, which is appropriately titled Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving will be airing on November 22 at 7:30 pm EST. To see more, visit 91.7 WVXU.
