Movie Info

The story originally aired on television and like the other animated Peanuts specials, features a toe-tapping, wistful score by Vince Guaraldi and his trio.

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6)

  • Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang are always the right medicine for any and every holiday.

  • Witnessing the principle in action last night inspired some ready-made nostalgia and some ritualized pleasure. It affirmed the conviction that Charlie Brown is not just a good man, but a beautiful loser.

  • The Great Pumpkin may be infinitely memorable, but the Thanksgiving special has a better story and themes more meaningful for the holiday it is celebrating.

  • The third in the great trilogy of year-end "Charlie Brown" half-hour holiday specials, this one is just as inspired, with its makeshift dinner of toast, popcorn, pretzels and jelly beans.

    November 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • ...pleasant enough and clearly in the Peanuts tradition. However, it doesn't quite match the poignancy of the Christmas or Halloween specials.

    September 5, 2010 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • Classic turkey-day special for young and old.

Audience Reviews for A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

  • Nov 18, 2013
    A fun annual short film that is very popularly played around Thanksgiving each year and one most families watch together each year. Nothing spectacular but a fun short watch for the kids and families together.

    I enjoy this one probably more than the other Peanut's holidays.
