Recently, it was announced that Apple TV acquired the rights to the Peanuts franchise, which means they own the Charlie Brown holiday specials we all know and love.

Along with this announcement, came the news that the Charlie Brown Christmas and Thanksgiving specials would not be aired on TV this year like they usually are *GASP*

After not airing “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” in October, chaos erupted as people longed to see the beloved Peanuts characters on their screens. Well, the influx of complaints ended up working because, drumroll please…
