ABC will be airing two Peanuts animated specials this November, starting with A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (in HD and with Spanish audio) on Wednesday, November 21 at 8p and This is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers the next day, November 22 at the same time. The specials were executive produced by Lee Mendelson and created and written by Charles M. Schulz himself. Bill Melendez is the producer and director and Vince Guaraldi composed the music.
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving follows Peppermint Patty as she invites herself and her friends over to Charlie Brown’s for Thankgiving. With the help of Linus, Snoopy, and Woodstock, Charlie attempts to throw together a Thanksgiving dinner.
In This is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers, the Peanuts gang take the voyage to the new world, where they learn about planting, building, diseases, and how to grow corn. They eventually have the first Thanksgiving.
