Everyone is familiar with the original Thanksgiving special from Peanuts, but few are familiar with the mini-series that aired from 1988-1989 entitled “This is America, Charlie Brown”. The series took several important historical events in our nation’s history and retold them using the Peanuts gang.

The first of the series took on the task of telling the tale of the pilgrims and their voyage to America. Later episodes looked at the birth of the constitution, the birth of flight, and even took on space.

The annual tradition is with the original special, but why not give this episode from the mini-series a chance?
