A Petition To Bring 'Peanuts' Specials Back To Television Has Over 160k Signatures

One of the best parts of the holiday seasons is participating in the traditions that we do every single year — decorating our homes, spending time with family, making sure our husbands don't drown themselves in the gravy boat, and watching the movies we all know and love on television.

We already might have to adjust our family plans this year, but it's clear that people do not want their television messed with.

One of the best parts of this time of year is watching the *Peanuts* specials on TV.

There's the Halloween classic, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, followed by A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and A Charlie Brown Christmas, which have aired on TV every year for over 50 years. They're a staple of the holiday season!

This year, though, things might look a little different.

Apple TV now owns the rights to the Peanuts specials, and when they announced that instead of airing on broadcast television, the specials would be streaming exclusively on their platform, they probably didn't expect anyone to put up a fight.

They should have known better when it comes to messing with our TV and our holiday plans — our two most important things!

An online petition was created to bring the *Peanuts* specials back to where they belong!

"For over 50 years, we have celebrated the holidays with the airings of the Peanuts holiday specials on TV," reads the petition. "To our shock and dismay, last night it was announced that Apple had swiped the football from us and claimed the specials for their Apple TV platform, leaving us devoted fans who have grown up with Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang in the dark, unable to watch."

"Obviously we can't let this stand. We can not let Apple take the football away from us like Lucy always does to Charlie Brown!"

"With this petition, we are making a statement - the statement that #AppleHatesTradition and that the tradition of watching the Peanuts holiday specials should be renewed as soon as possible!"

Over 160k people have signed the petition already! Are you going to be one of them? Let us know in the comments!
