ABC To Air A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving The Night Before The Holiday

A Thanksgiving Holiday classic will kick off one day early.

ABC will air A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on Wednesday Nov. 26 at 8 p.m. ET. Following the 30 minute animated special is a bonus Peanuts cartoon, This Is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers.

In A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown wants to do something special for the gang. However, the dinner he arranges is a disaster when the caterers, Snoopy and Woodstock, prepare toast and popcorn as the main dish. Humiliated, it will take all of Marcie's persuasive powers to salvage the holiday for Charlie Brown.

In This Is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers the year is 1620. After 65 grueling, sea-tossed days, the Pilgrims are in view of America's shores – and Charlie Brown and the Peanuts crew are with them as they experience firsthand the lifestyle of the early settlers and celebrate the first Thanksgiving.


Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang are based on the popular PEANUTS comic strip created by Charles M. Shulz.
