    I wish this came on regualr TV, we looked forward to this every year as a family tradition.

      We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for any other ways to watch, rn404. 🤞 If you happen to have a DVD player, you might scoop it up on Amazon for under $10 to have on hand each year. 🎃 I’ve done this with other classics when I’ve no longer been able to find them on local channels. 🤗

      Yes. I had bought the DVD thankfully. I think it’s terrible that they did this.

    I checked my DVR to see what channel it was on when I recorded it in October 2021.
    Looks like it was on PBS WHYY. Maybe again this year.

    It really is unfortunate. Especially because its the almost the only good thing on Apple TV. I wasn’t impressed by any of the programs up there.

      Sorry to hear you didn’t care for any of their other content, Chelsea. Hoping you’ll be able to watch and enjoy the Charlie Brown Halloween movie. ❤️🎃
