Everyone knows that Charlie Brown’s nemesis is a kite-eating tree. But the “Peanuts” hero hopes to cool that kind of rivalry as we head into Earth Day and Arbor Day.

A new “Peanuts” special debuting on Apple TV+ on Friday celebrates the environment and highlights that even tiny changes can help the Earth.

“It’s the Small Things, Charlie Brown” also has an original new song by Ben Folds.

In the 40-minute film, Charlie Brown’s hope to finally win the neighborhood championship baseball game is derailed when his little sister, Sally, tries to protect a dandelion growing on the pitcher’s mound.
