Do you believe in the Great Pumpkin? Whether you are a true believer like Linus or a skeptic like Peppermint Patty, all Peanuts fans will be able to watch Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the gang celebrate Halloween this year. We've teamed up with Apple for a special, ad-free broadcast of “It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” on October 24. This program will not be available for streaming on the PBS App, but here is how you can watch:

Watch live on your local PBS station.

If you watch your local PBS station through one of your local cable companies (or YouTube TV), you are all set. Just tune in on October 24 (check your local listings to confirm the time.) Likewise, if you get PBS over the air with an antenna, you are set.

This program will not be available on your station's livestream on PBS.org or the PBS App.

Watch on your local PBS KIDS channel.

If your local PBS station offers a PBS KIDS channel, this program will air on that channel. Once again, if you access PBS KIDS through one of your local cable companies (or YouTube TV), you are all set. Just tune in on October 24 at 7:30 / 6:30C PM. Likewise, if you get PBS KIDS over the air with an antenna, you are set.

Please note that this program will not be available on pbskids.org or the PBS KIDS Video App.
