Apple TV+ is proud to be the new home for all things Peanuts and will be introducing a new holiday special, “For Auld Lang Syne,” on December 10. After Grandma can’t visit for Christmas, a disappointed Lucy decides to throw herself the best New Year’s Eve party ever.
Meanwhile, Charlie Brown is trying to complete just one of his New Year’s resolutions before midnight. Sounds like it could be good and I’m curious to see how they decide to animate this new special.
I remember watching these specials every year and though I do miss watching the 80s ads from that old VHS tape my family had recorded them all on, it is nice that they are continuing the tradition of airing these classic holiday specials.
If this doesn’t sound like your thing, then you can still enjoy the classic Peanuts holiday specials on Apple TV+ or you can watch them when they broadcast again on PBS. You can watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” which will air on PBS and PBS KIDS on Sunday, October 24 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings), “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” will air on PBS and PBS KIDS on Sunday, November 21 at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT (check local listings) and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” will air on PBS and PBS KIDS on Sunday, December 19 at 7:30 p.m. (check local listings).
Which one is your favorite? Will you be checking out the new one?
