Good grief! "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and other "Peanuts" holiday specials have found a new home.
Instead of airing on broadcast television, the "Peanuts" animated classics will be streaming on Apple TV+ as part of an expanded partnership with WildBrain, Peanuts Worldwide and Lee Mendelson Film Productions, according to reports.
Here's People.com's report on the news.
Apple TV+ announced Monday that new "Peanuts" series and specials as well as some of the franchise's classic programming are coming to the streaming service.
"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," which debuted on TV in 1966, is now on the service and will stream for free between Oct. 30 and Nov. 1.
"A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" will be available for viewing on the service on Nov. 18, while "A Charlie Brown Christmas" hits the platform on Dec. 4.
The fresh batch of original content includes new specials involving Charlie Brown, Snoopy and events such as the return to school, Mother's Day and Earth Day.
"The Snoopy Show" and a second season of "Snoopy in Space" will also stream on Apple TV+. The service also announced a documentary film celebrating the 70th anniversary of "Peanuts."
The new projects are being produced by WildBrain studio, which announced the news in a press release.
