If you’re looking for Charlie Brown’s Halloween special, you won’t find it on TV. Here’s how you can still watch for free without any streaming subscriptions.
WASHINGTON — While you won’t find “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” on TV this year, everyone can watch the classic Halloween special this weekend for free.
Apple TV+ once again makes Peanuts special available to watch for free from October 28 through October 31, 2022.
Back in 2020, Apple TV+ became the new home for all things Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang, including beloved holiday specials. It sparked an outcry when viewers learned it meant specials wouldn’t be airing on TV for the first time in decades.
Although Halloween 2020 came and went without the appearance of “Fantastic Pumpkin” on TV, Apple later partnered with PBS to air ad-free “Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving” and “Christmas” Charlie Brown’s Birth”.
Last year, all three Peanuts holiday specials aired again on PBS. This year, however, that won’t happen.
PBS confirmed in an e-mail that it does not have the right to distribute Peanuts specials this year.
So if you’re searching for “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” or “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” you’ll need to switch to Apple TV+.
Those without an Apple TV+ subscription can still watch each special for a limited time during the holidays.
“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” will be available to watch for free from October 28 through October 31; “Thanksgiving Charlie Brown” will run from November 23 to November 27; and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will be available from December 22 to December 25.
“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” premiered on CBS in 1966, then moved to ABC in 2001, where it aired annually until 2020.
