A classic Peanuts Christmas countdown on for 2021

Ho ho ho!'s annual tradition of counting down the days to Christmas with the Peanuts gang returns on Friday, November 26.

Our home page will feature a different seasonally themed comic each day through December 25.

Alas, new Christmas countdown panels are no longer being made, but once again we have reached into our expanded archives to bring you the 1993 panels, unseen (as far as we know) since their original run nearly 30 years ago.

(Research efforts last year by co-host Derrick Bang uncovered 12 years of previously lost countdown panels... 1993 being one of them. You can read all about his hunt in his blog post.)

Unfortunately, the sources for these panels weren't high quality and required a fair bit of cleanup, so they aren't as crisp or detailed as the panels from the late 1990's and 2000's.

But we hope you'll still find them as charming as we do, and visit our home page each day to enjoy these panels as the holiday approaches!

Snoopy in Space Season 2 now streaming on Apple TV+

A new 12-episode season of Snoopy in Space is now available to watch on the subscription streaming service Apple TV+.  Titled Snoopy in Space: The Search for Life, Apple describes this season as follows:

Join Snoopy on an epic interstellar road trip as our intrepid beagle tackles one of the most compelling mysteries of humankind: is there life out there in the universe? Snoopy and his friends bring NASA’s most exciting current research to life, from searching for traces of ice and ancient fossils on Mars, to drilling into oceans hidden inside of distant moons, and even seeking out exoplanets far beyond our own solar system. Of course, like any good road trip, Snoopy and Woodstock’s journey includes lots of extra adventures along the way, plus plenty of support from Charlie Brown, Franklin, Marcie, Linus and the rest of the Peanuts gang back at Johnson Space Center. Let the adventure begin!

You can watch the trailer for the new season here, and read the full press release here.  The episodes premiered on November 12, 2021.

As part of the season 2 launch, Apple has released a 6-minute video titled "DIY Snoopy Space Lab," with instructions for three space-themed activities for kids - making galaxy slime, building a satellite, and creating moon sand.  Watch it on YouTube here.

Other Peanuts shows available solely on Apple TV+ include the first season of Snoopy in Space; the first season of The Snoopy Show; several of the classic Peanuts holiday television specials; the documentary Who Are You, Charlie Brown?, and the upcoming new special For Auld Lang Syne.

Time for Macy's 95th Annual Thanksgiving Parade

Snoopy is back again!


Save the date!


New Yorkers and visitors once again will be able to enjoy the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in person. After nearly two years of intense social distancing, we’ve no doubt this will be one of the best-attended parades ever.


The balloon(s) will go up — literally! — on November 25th. Folks not able to attend the 95th annual Macy’s Parade in person, can watch all the fun from 9 a.m. to noon, all time zones, on NBC-TV.

Astronaut Snoopy will return for the third consecutive year, continuing the world-famous beagle’s record as the longest-running balloon character in the parade.  Snoopy is delighted to know his ground crew will be back, because being driven by a utility vehicle — last year, due to Covid restrictions — was simply not the same.
