On October 19, it was announced that Apple TV+ has teamed up with WildBrain, along with Peanuts Worldwide and Lee Mendelson Film Productions, to become the home for all things “Peanuts,” bringing together new original series and specials, along with beloved specials to fans around the world, all in one place. However, some folks aren’t happy about the content being exclusive to Apple.
So some Peanuts fans have started a petition to bring the Peanuts specials back to broadcast TV. It reads, in part: “Win or lose, we are telling Apple and Wildbrain Studios that we will not fall for their corporate greed. But our goal is to get our Peanuts back on television and bring back the tradition!” So far the petition has over 110,000 signatures.
