The Thanksgiving classic: “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” will be airing this year the night before Thanksgiving on ABC on Wednesday, November 27. The holiday special first aired in 1973 before becoming a perennial, beloved holiday tradition for generations of families.
Following “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” ABC will be airing a bonus Charlie Brown feature, an episode from This Is America, Charlie Brown: “The Mayflower Voyagers,” which recounts the story of the Pilgrims’ first Thanksgiving. This animated short film shows Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang as Pilgrims in the year 1620 sailing to the New World aboard the Mayflower and enduring the first hard winter on Plymouth Plantation.
My kids and I got a copy of the DVD in advance featuring both specials from our local library and enjoyed watching the classic together in preparation for the holiday 🙂
