December 2014 TV broadcasts: A Charlie Brown Christmas will air twice along with two other Peanuts specials

As the Peanuts gang often notes, holiday time is fast approaching, so ABC has announced their holiday special broadcast plans.

They include two outings of the very first Peanuts TV special, A Charlie Brown Christmas. The initial broadcast of the 1965 classic will be on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 from 8:30 - 9:00 PM (Eastern/Pacific); this showing will be edited to fit into the half-hour timeslot.

The second showing of A Charlie Brown Christmas will be on Tuesday, December 16, 2014 from 8 - 9 PM (Eastern/Pacific). It will be unedited, and accompanied by the 2002 skit compilation Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales.

Also coming in December on ABC are I Want a Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown on Saturday, December 20, 2014 from 8 - 9 PM (Eastern/Pacific), and Happy New Year, Charlie Brown together with She's a Good Skate, Charlie Brown on Monday, December 29, 2014 from 8 - 9 PM (Eastern/Pacific).

Glad to see this line up return this year. I wonder if Fox will air "Happiness" again this year?

Looks like the answer to that is "probably," but nothing firm has been announced yet.

In addition, will Snoopy appear in the New York Macy's parade this year? If so, it would've been interesting to see, but where I am (southeastern Michigan), our NBC station (WDIV) preempts the live airing for their own production of our own Thanksgiving Day parade in Detroit.

Yes, the Snoopy and Woodstock balloon that debuted last year will be in the 2014 Macy's parade (see this blog post ). There's supposed to be a live stream of the parade on as well as the TV broadcast, so you could give that a try.
