The audience took to ABC to watch The Peanuts Gang in "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving". Despite being officially released on November 20, 1973, the episode still appeals to many as part of their Thanksgiving tradition that manifested on the network's ratings.

According to Screener, ABC's broadcast of "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" ended on top of the chart with a 1.9 rating in adults that ages 18 to 49. Many have grown up with the episode and have treated it a longstanding tradition, regardless if it is on DVD or not. It also has been an activity that families do together during the Thanksgiving eve.

The program itself is a significant part of The Peanuts tradition, which earned its creator Charles M. Schulz an Emmy award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Children's Programming the year after its release. The show's producer, Lee Mendelson, and animator Bill Melendez were also nominated for an Emmy the same year.

There were also notable scenes particular to this special. As posted on Heavy, the scene where Snoopy struggles with a lawn chair that Bill Littlejohn animated was a tribute to the early Walt Disney animated shorts from Schulz.

It is also remarkable that this special does not include any adult presence. Adults are usually not animated into the story, but they are signified by the trademark sound "WAH- WAH -WAH" reated by Vince Guardi.

The show never gets old with time, an executive producer once remarked the popularity of Charlie Brown how the people relates and identify with. Charlie Brown's character is often shown with struggles, but he remains resilient and gets back on his feet. Add that to the great humor of Charles Schulz and everything is a done deal!

For the upcoming Christmas, people can be with the gang again with "A Charlie Brown Christmas" that features the Little Red Haired Girl.
