A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving – Broadcast Twice This Year
In the Greg “Splashin’” McShea household, we love all those Charlie Brown holiday TV shows, and ’tis the season for “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”. The show was first broadcast in 1973, and it’s back twice this year!
According to ABC-TV:
“ABC Television Network will celebrate the start of the holiday season with the classic half-hour animated Thanksgiving-themed PEANUTS special, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, created by late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) AND THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 22 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
A special bonus cartoon from Charles M. Schulz, This Is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers, will air with the PEANUTS classic. In it, history comes to animated screen life in a captivating and informative program about the Mayflower voyagers.”
