I just can't imagine any of the Peanuts cartoons having a laugh track. To me it would take away it's true essence. It's sad that he had a fight while he was alive; to prevent it from happening. But, at least he won! I will always love Peanuts just the way they are.

I love the Charlie Brown Halloween and Christmas movie; the Thanksgiving one not so much; however, I can't imagine any of these 3 being "laughable" to require a laugh track. They are simply heart-warming, put a smile on your face short movies.

I have to agree, they are classics. A laugh track on them would have been just awful.

I wonder why only 5 years? Perhaps after that another network will air them or they will wait 5 years to renegotiate contract.

I couldn't agree more with all the above posts !!! A laugh track would have been just horrible !! I love these specials as much now as I did when I was little.

Even though "Sparky" had to fight so much, I'm glad he did! A laugh track would've been awful!

I LOVE the CB Christmas and Halloween specials. Not too fond of the Thanksgiving one. I LOVE Snoopy and Woodstock but the overall storyline is just "eh" IMO.

I just hope ABC does not get politically correct in the next couple of years and make an attempt to eliminate the Christmas message that Linus delievers near the end. In these times and the way things are going, it wouldn't surprise me if we eventually see them censor it sometime in the future. Of course, a discussion of this caliber belongs in the "war on Christmas" thread, but I'm just making an observation and hope that does not come to pass.
