The debut of Apple TV+ last year also came with the new streaming service being the exclusive home to the Peanuts gang, with For Auld Lang Syne set to debut on Apple TV+ later this year, marking the first Peanuts TV special in a decade and the very first that doesn’t feature either “Charlie Brown” or “Snoopy” in its title. This isn’t the first Peanuts special that honors New Year’s, however, as fans were given Happy New Year, Charlie Brown back in 1986. For Auld Lang Syne is currently set to debut on Apple TV+ on December 10th.
Per press release, “Apple and PBS once again come together to spread holiday cheer with broadcast airings of classic Peanuts specials It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and “A Charlie Brown Christmas. Apple today announced that For Auld Lang Syne — the first new original holiday special to come from Apple’s expanded partnership with WildBrain — will premiere globally on Friday, December 10 on Apple TV+. In the special, after the Peanuts gang experience a disappointing Christmas because Grandma can’t visit, Lucy resolves to throw herself the best New Year’s Eve party ever, while Charlie Brown struggles to accomplish just one of his resolutions before the clock strikes twelve.
“The festive tradition of gathering to watch the classic adventures of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and friends continues this holiday season with Apple and PBS again teaming up to offer multiple ways to view ad-free airings of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and A Charlie Brown Christmas.
