Thanksgiving 2013 is shaping up to be a TV filled day in the U.S. From the excitement of the parade to the three football games airing on turkey day to the evening holiday programming, the kids will be fighting for that remote all day. One thing no holiday would be complete without is the classic peanuts special, "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving." Created by Charles M. Schulz, the "Peanuts" cartoon strip and cartoon shorts have become American classics. The "Peanuts" characters have become so popular that they was given their own balloon and float in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

"A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" will air Thursday Nov. 28 at 8pm ET on ABC. This will mark the 40th anniversary of the beloved "Peanuts" special. First airing in 1973, "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" features favorite characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy as they try to prepare a Thanksgiving feast for Peppermint Patty, Linus, Lucy, Sally, Marcie and Franklin. Of course it wouldn't be a Charlie Brown special without the kids making Charlie feel bad about something, and Peppermint Patty does just that.

Unhappy with the meal of toast, popcorn and candy that Snoopy and Woodstock prepared, the kids demand to know where the turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes are? To the creator of Charlie Brown, the character represents each and every one of us. He is the bullied kid who just wants to please everyone. Charlie is able to salvage Thanksgiving and invites all of the kids to his grandmother's house for a turkey dinner. "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" won an Emmy for Outstanding Children's Special in 1974.
