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.

Getting right to the point, it’s not Halloween until Snoopy says so. The same can be said for several other holidays, from Christmas to Thanksgiving. And no matter what kind of argument you use against the point, the fact remains: the holiday just doesn’t feel like the holiday unless you get to experience the Peanuts special, just like you did the year before, and the year before that, and the year before that. Once again, ABC is happy to help us out on the quest, as the classic Peanuts Halloween special, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, will air on Thursday, October 27th, at 8pm.

One of the most memorable visuals of the Peanuts crew is the attachment between Linus and his blanket. As one of Charlie Brown and Snoopy’s good friends, you can find Linus in most every adventure for the Charles M. Schulz group of kids, always side by side (or sometimes even adorned in) his baby blue blanket. But in the new hour long special, Happiness Is A Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, the task is to help Linus separate from his security blanket when his grandmother comes for a visit. No easy task! But with time ticking down, everyone is focusing in on this security situation! Take a look at the teaser trailer for the special, then be sure to TOON in to fox on November 24th for the full presentation.

The Peanuts crew may now be worth $175 million (thanks to United Media) but the group of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Woodstock, and more aren’t just resting back! With summer in full swing, the Peanuts Gang are back at it with a new baseball themed special: Lucy Must Be Traded, Charlie Brown. The episode reaches the ABC network on Wednesday, July 14th, at 8pm. Created by Charles M. Schulz, the characters started life in comic strips before moving to regular seasonal appearances on ABC, all featuring original music by Vince Guaraldi and David Benoit. After a whopping 900 losses, baseball team manager Charlie Brown will do anything for a win. The opportunity to trade Lucy might be his lucky ticket… but can new player Marcie finally lead the team to victory?
