"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" is only available on Apple TV+.

“It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” is a Halloween staple for generations of viewers. But even though it returned to public TV  last year, it won’t be the same this time around.

The beloved annual Halloween special premiered on CBS in 1966, one year after the popular Peanuts crew starred in another holiday favorite, “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” The Halloween special moved to ABC in 2001.

But public outrange ensued when “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and the other Peanuts holiday specials were moved to AppleTV+ as part of a corporate deal in 2020, marking the first time it wouldn’t be shown on public TV since its debut more than 50 years ago. A sense of normalcy was reached in 2021 when the special was aired on PBS
