Bust out your festive bunny ears and load up on chocolate eggs because you can watch It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown a couple ways this year. Debuted in 1974, the 30-minute, springtime Peanuts holiday special is a classic. And while it won’t air on TV in 2021 like it has in years past, you can easily stream it.
In It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown, Linus is excitedly waiting for the arrival of the Easter Beagle, a beagle who hands out Easter eggs each year and suspiciously looks a lot like Snoopy. Unfortunately, none of the other children believe him. Can you blame them after what happened when the Great Pumpkin never showed up? Meanwhile, Charlie, Lucy, Sally, and Marcy are getting ready for the Easter holiday by attempting to color eggs, but of course there are a few hiccups along the way. See? A Peanuts classic. So here is everything you need to know to watch It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown this year.
