For the first time in 50 years, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and A Charlie Brown Christmas won't air on ABC. Instead, the Peanuts specials will be exclusive to Apple TV+.

That headline again: I won't be able to see the Peanuts specials this year.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

This is just another case of a company locking a beloved IP behind a paywall. AT&T did it with Sesame Street.

^Sesame Street still sends new episodes to PBS, just not until a little while after HBO. And that was done to preserve the show's production budget; the Peanuts specials don't have a production budget anymore.

Why didn't you just tell them "I'm bored of these specials, no thank you."

Just because something you don't like is on television doesn't mean others don't like it. All you need to do is vote with your feet and tell them "no" then not watch them. Are they forcing you to?

wait people like things that I don't?!?! you don't say!

It's just on at parties dude, in the background. It's not a big deal. I just change the channel to football usually. More party friendly. They're a sucker for those peanuts though. I'll never understand it. Usually not my house it's my parent's house and my dad is on the same wavelength as me. BIG BLUE.
