As the holidays begin to roll around, one of the most popular and classic series that always appears on television is Charlie Brown. The Peanuts gang has been around for so many years, and it is easy to see why. With family-friendly themes and storylines, kids from all ages can enjoy the characters and the plots. At its peak, Peanuts ran in over 2,600 newspapers, with a readership of 355 million in 75 countries, and was translated into 21 languages!
Peanuts has a great YouTube channel, where you can find tons of clips from some of the most popular Charlie Brown episodes. In honor of Thanksgiving, I have posted some clips from Thanksgiving episodes of Charlie Brown. Here are a couple of clips that kids and adults can watch together over Thanksgiving break.
This video shows Charlie Brown, Linus and Snoopy as they prepare for their Thanksgiving dinner. Kids will love watching the gang in the kitchen and can get an idea of the time and dedication many people spend on preparing the food for this holiday..
This video shows Charlie Brown, Linus and Sally discuss their plans for Thanksgiving. It lets kids see the different views that some people have on different holidays. It also lets them get a little explanation on the holiday, from Linus, who many can relate to.
