Default Peanuts to celebrate New Year's Eve on Apple TV+ with its first special in a decade

https://collider.com/new-peanuts-hol...syne-apple-tv/

For Auld Lang Syne, premiering Dec. 10, will mark the 46th Peanuts special since A Charlie Brown Christmas launched the Peanuts specials in 1965. The 45th special, Happiness Is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown, aired on Fox in 2011. For Auld Lang Syne will follow the Peanuts characters after a disappointing Christmas where grandma is unable to visit. To end the year on a positive note, Lucy decides to throw the greatest New Year’s Eve party ever, as Charlie Brown attempts to fulfill one of his resolutions before the year is over. This is the second Peanuts New Year’s Eve-themed special after Happy New Year, Charlie Brown!, which aired on CBS in 1986. For Auld Lang Syne is being made in partnership with WildBrain, the production company that is also behind Apple TV+'s Snoopy in Space, The Snoopy Show, and the Charles M. Schultz documentary, Who Are You, Charlie Brown?

How Peanuts' first special in a decade stacks up to the classics

Apple TV+'s Snoopy Presents: For Auld Lang Syne, the first Peanuts special since 2011, dropped on Friday. " In the new special, the existential crisis is transferred to, of all people, Lucy Van Pelt, the strip’s resident antagonist, who interprets her grandmother’s failure to come for Christmas as a sign she is not lovable; in a panic, she determines to throw a big New Year’s Eve party to prove otherwise," says Robert Lloyd, adding: "Although it lacks the handmade charm of the Lee Mendelson-produced, Bill Melendez-directed specials of old, the animation, by Canada’s WildBrain Studios, deftly captures (Charles) Schulz’s line, rounding out characters with subtle lighting effects, so that they handily inhabit a world appropriately more 2-D than three. Slapstick sequences, which Schulz had a gift for suggesting on the page, are smoothly executed."

The more recent Peanuts movie failed the characters IMHO by easing Charlie Brown's burden. The neighborhood kids invited him out to play (what?) and the little red-haired girl noticed him and said something nice (excuse me?). Totally ruins the premise. This one sounds like more of the same.
