Is it even Halloween if you haven’t watched the Charlie Brown Halloween movie?!
The ultimate Halloween movie is back on PBS!
It’s just not Halloween without at least one viewing of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! So you guys had better get your popcorn (and your pumpkin carving kits 🎃) ready, because this beloved classic is making a comeback this year after being tragically absent from the networks in 2020.
The Charlie Brown Halloween movie follows Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts gang while they celebrate Halloween and wait for the Great Pumpkin to emerge from the patch. It’s one of the most treasured Halloween movies ever, and if you haven’t seen it yet, this is the year to tune in!
Luckily, Apple and PBS are teaming up this year to broadcast a special, ad-free showing of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Unfortunately, this won’t be available to stream over the PBS.org website or the PBS App. But you can still catch it on PBS and PBS KIDS channels at 7:30 / 6:30C p.m. on October 24th!
If your local cable company doesn’t support the PBS KIDS channel, no worries! You can still access it via YouTube TV.
It looks like PBS and PBS KIDS will only be streaming this It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown for that one night, but you can always stream it whenever you want with an Apple TV subscription!
And hopefully, this isn’t the only time Apple and PBS are teaming up in 2021! While they didn’t show the Charlie Brown Halloween movie last year, they did come together to bring us A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and A Charlie Brown Christmas! We’re fully in the holiday spirit, so hopefully we’ll get treated to those classics this year as well. ❤️
