Snoopy and the Peanuts gang celebrate A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving


Snoopy and the Peanuts gang celebrate A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Every year. Every holiday. It never feels special or real until we get word from Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the Peanuts gang. This year, the Thanksgiving episode finds a home directly on turkey day, hitting ABC on Thursday, November 24th, at 8pm. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, the classic half hour animated special, was created by Charles M. Schulz back in 1973, which means we’re nearing the 40th anniversary of the toon. Featuring the usual sweet story that we’ve come to expect from the Peanuts gang, as well as perfectly matching with Vince Guaraldi’s musical score, this Emmy Award winning cartoon is a childhood classic for generations of childhoods.

Once again, Charlie Brown is in a sticky situation. His friends (who aren’t always that friendly to him, in the first place) demand that he host a memorable and perfect Thanksgiving feast. And even though he’s likely perfectly capable of preparing the day, he lives in such utter fear of failing and being called a Blockhead. So, it’s up to Snoopy and Woodstock to save the day, and the holiday – even with toast and popcorn. Marcie’s persuasive powers and Linus’s ability to impart the true meaning of Thanksgiving help ease things over.

But wait, there’s more!

Immediately following the Thanksgiving special, the Peanuts gang returns in a second half hour special called This is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers. The year is 1620, and the Pilgrims are in view of America’s shores, with Charlie Brown and the Peanuts crew along the ride, experiencing history firsthand.
