How to Watch It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown on PBS
October 24, 2021
Tonight, PBS will show It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown on their TV stations. This will be the first time since 2019 the show has aired on TV. I really liked the show growing up and watched it every year, but I was disappointed and upset when it didn’t air on TV in 2020. Fortunately, I already own my own copy of the show on DVD, so I could still watch it. I’m very excited to watch the show again, except on TV instead of on DVD.
Last week, while researching what time the show will be on, I discovered not all PBS platforms will carry it. The PBS stations for over the air TV and cable will air the special. The channels are the original PBS station and on their station that airs only children’s programs, PBS Kids. Even the over the air and cable PBS channels will air the show, the online streaming services and apps for PBS and PBS Kids will not be showing it. And this is why I’m writing this post!
In order to make sure you will be able to watch the show, please read this article on PBS’ website. Also, check the times when the show will air. Last year, I learned that the hard way when I tried to watch the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special. Some stations will air the show at different times on different channels. So, make sure to pick a channel to watch and double check what time the show will air.
