If you want to buy the classic Peanuts Holiday favorites in any physical media you better get in line and grab some cash. ABC has sold the rights to Apple TV and will no longer play these on regular networks. I bought the Blu-Ray set last year for around $10 and now they are bidding around $50 and up. And they say us physical media collectors are out of touch?

We are out of touch. The majority of the world has moved onto streaming.

We are out of touch with the times, but we don’t pay $50 for physical media when we had plenty of time to buy it at regular price.

There will always be people with disposable who want the physical object.

Sadly we're becoming the haves and haves nots. All these streaming services are buying up properties to fill out their catalogue. These should be available on over the air television. Not every family is going to have Apple +. In fact most wont and will grow in up a era where they won't experience these classics . I can't imagine growing up never seen Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Art, music, literature are very important in the development of a child. Not everything, especially classic entertainment should be hidden behind a paywall for the privileged. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer was profoundly important to me growing up. I'd hate to see that on a premium only service where underprivileged kids couldn't see it.

Apple is magnanimously making it avail to everyone (with a computer/internet service) for free for a short windows...
Thanks for nothing Apple.

I have these on DVD, which Seems sufficient for animation, but I looked at the prices for Blu-Ray on eBay, and OMG!
The trio will set you back a minimum of $60, and I saw it as high as $170 for the set. Yeesh...

Those people that are paying outrageous prices for this set always had the thought that these cartoons would be on major networks every season. I think if they would wait till Black Friday deals, then they are really going to be kicking themselves for paying that much on something for $20 or less.

When you think about it, it's not at all dissimilar to how Nestle is working incessantly to commodify drinking water.
It won't be happy until every nation has to buy their bottled water at the store.

I agree with you about art, music, and literature, but that doesn't mean that Peanuts and Rankin Bass holiday specials should be guaranteed airtime on network TV in perpetuity. Humanity got by without them for millennia.

Network TV may not even exist in a few years. In fact, I wasn't sure until this thread that it still did exist.

I write this as someone who loves those shows, incidentally.

I'd hate to deny any child the existential torment of Peanuts.

Charlie Brown summed up my life philosophy. I was a lot like him (minus--Linus?--the "baldy sour" haircut) when I was a kid, only I didn't realize it until I became an adult.

I see that the Peanuts 1960s Collection DVD--not even Blu-ray--is going for large money these days. I got it for $12.49 new back in 2015.

It's important to remember that poor kids today with internet access, on any night of the week, can listen to any composition by Thelonious Monk, see every Frank Lloyd Wright building, and read any poem by Frank O'Hara.

I did not have access to that kind of culture when I was watching Peanuts specials on network TV.

I just hope these hordes of intellectually-curious children don't stumble upon It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown before they do the Christmas special.

Apple TV has the rights for Charlie Brown Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas episodes.
