Those that were upset with Apple’s acquisition of the Peanuts holiday specials (making Apple TV+ the only place to stream the historic specials) will sleep better knowing that they are coming back to broadcast television.

With specials like A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and A Charlie Brown Christmas airing for free in a tradition that dates back to 1965, hundreds of thousands petitioned for the return of the animated specials — without the reruns taking place near the holidays, it just wouldn’t feel right.

Apple, hearing the outcry, has now joined with PBS for a partnership that will bring both specials back to free television broadcast. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving will run on PBS and PBS KIDS on November 22 at 6:30 p.m. CT while A Charlie Brown Christmas will air on December 13, 6:30 p.m. CT.
