Most kids grew up watching “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” whether it was on the last day of school before Thanksgiving break or as a family tradition.

The Peanuts gang have long been a fixture in American popular culture, and so have the various holiday specials that the gang starred in through the years. “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” is one such example of this. Although the special has aired on cable television for many years, it stopped airing on television last year and went straight to streaming instead.

Most kids grew up watching “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving,” whether it was on the last day of school before Thanksgiving break or as a family tradition. No matter what age you are, the message of “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” remains the same: being grateful is one of the most important parts of being human.

The film opens with the infamous football gag. For those unfamiliar with the Peanuts cartoons, Lucy attempts to talk Charlie Brown into kicking a football. Charlie Brown obliges, and he hurts himself. After Charlie rights himself, he meets Sally and Linus. Sally expresses her dismay at the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

Here, Charlie Brown reveals the main conflict in the story. Charlie Brown and Sally agreed to be at their grandmother’s house on Thanksgiving Day but also agreed to have friends over that day.

Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the gang kick into action to prepare a Thanksgiving feast, which ultimately consisted of popcorn, jelly beans, and toast. Peppermint Patty hates this, and demands to go somewhere she can get proper food.
