    A Christmas Miracle! I was just about to call Bill Oreilly as this was all part of the war on Christmas.

    I believe your friend is mixed up. People like to claim their favorite old stuff is being "censored"; and if Peanuts went to Apple streaming (temporarily apprently) because of copyrights and corporate greed, that's great fuel for the conspiracy.

    Just did the same thing yesterday, the Peanuts Holiday Collection 4K box set was on special for $19.99 at Amazon.

    BTW, jazz pianist David Benoit has been doing a Charlie Brown Christmas concert small tour for many years along the west coast. I've seen the show maybe a half dozen times at The Carpenter Center at Long Beach State. He plays the Vince Guaraldi songs as well some other Christmas classics and a few of his own, with a small combo, a female singer, and a usually a boys choir. With no live concert this year, he's going to do it (probably more stripped down) on Youtube for Rick's Cafe on Sat Dec 5th.
    Info: David Benoit

    He also put out an album this year of the Charlie Brown (and other) Christmas material:

    I think you're probably right about that...

    I checked the DVR listings and you're right, PBS Kids is airing it in this market too...

    I forget the details, but the 4K set has bonus content that the BD set does not.

    I was a cartoon junkie as most kids were back then. I watched all of them: Hanna-Barbera, Harveytoons, Terrytoons, those King Features cartoons with Beetle Bailey, Krazy Kat and Snuffy Smith, Felix the Cat, Clutch Cargo, etc. Warner Bros. Cartoons were always my favorite and still are.

    I hated Casper. “Will you be my friend?” Ugh. No one wants a friend who’s that needy.

    I'll check and see if ours will have it on. We watched it on DVD last night but if it ends up being on regular PBS we will check it out again. Can never get enough Chuck Brown.

    Most PBS affiliates will be airing the Peanuts special at 7:30 Eastern. Even our PBS Kids will air it at the same time as the main affiliate.

    Looks like civilization as we know it will receive a one-year reprieve.
