ABC aired A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving as part of their pre-holiday programming, and fans had some issues with the classic special.
"Watching Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving is hard knowing they put my n— Franklin at the end of the table by himself," one Twitter user wrote.
The confusing seating arrangement for the dinner left many viewers concerned as to what message the vintage television special showed its younger audiences.
It has been reported in the past that Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz was an outspoken advocate for equal representation, though that does not seem to stop the comments from 2018 viewers of the program.
The comments sparked a debate on Twitter about A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving , with a lot of fans coming to the defense of the beloved special and saying viewers were overly sensitive about a plot point that was not on purpose.
In 2018, the special ran taking over the 8 p.m. timeslot from The Goldbergs and American Housewife , followed by reruns of Modern Family , Single Parents .
