Apple TV is the new home of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and other animated Peanuts shows including It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and A Charlie Brown Christmas. But you will still be able to watch the childhood classics for free during a small period of time.

The streaming service, which normally costs $6.99 a month, will allow non-subscribers to watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving for free from November 23 through November 27. A Charlie Brown Christmas will be available for free from December 22 through December 25. (It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown was available for free from October 28 through October 31.)

Current Apple TV+ subscribers can watch the three shows at any time, along with several new original children’s shows and classics that Apple acquired earlier this year. (The Charlie Brown holiday specials have run for years on free networks such as ABC and PBS.)

On December 2, Apple TV+ subscribers will also be able to stream two other classic Peanuts holiday specials: I Want a Dog for Christmas and Charlie Brown’s Christmas Tales, and a new original Peanuts series, The Snoopy Show, in which the famous beagle solves all problems while confounding his young master.

In A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, Peppermint Patty invites everyone to Charlie Brown’s for Thanksgiving, even though he’s going to see his grandmother. Snoopy decides to cook his own version of a Thanksgiving meal with help from his friends.
