Following the news that fans of the Peanuts holiday specials would not be shown on broadcast television for the first time in 50 years, fans are fighting back by launching a petition to bring them back.

The iconic specials which include “It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”, and of course “A Charlie Brown Christmas”. While the specials switched networks throughout the decades, they have been a beloved tradition for families.

The Change.org petition started by Michael Nebbia says the following:

“Obviously we can’t let this stand. We can not let Apple take the football away from us like Lucy always does to Charlie Brown!” Nebbia writes in the petition’s description. “It’s time for us Peanuts fans to stand up to Apple and Wildbrain Studios (current owners of Peanuts) and show them they’re making a mistake. With this petition, we are making a statement – the statement that #AppleHatesTradition and that the tradition of watching the Peanuts holiday specials should be renewed as soon as possible! All we have to do is sign this, send it off and share it.”

It should be noted that Apple has said that its streaming service will offer the holiday specials for free and has already made “Great Pumpkin” available.
