Where to Join the Peanuts Gang to Watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving in 2020

The longtime ABC holiday staple is moving to a streaming platform but Peanuts fans can catch it on PBS and PBS Kids too!

Thanksgiving is upon us and the perennial favorite starring Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang will be making it's annual appearance with A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! The Thanksgiving episode is the 10th holiday special in the Charlie Brown collection, and features everyone's favorite people pleaser trying to accommodate his friends who invite themselves over for Turkey Day. Bonus: Linus gives viewers historical context and of course, Snoopy is up to his usual shenanigans.

The beloved Charles M. Schulz special is a holiday tradition for almost half a century, and this year, the viewing options are a bit different. Instead of catching the special on ABC as viewers have done for years now, the Charlie Brown collection has primarily moved to streaming.
