This is America, Charlie Brown is an eight-part educational animated cartoon series featuring characters from the Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz. The series originally aired on CBS from October 21, 1988 to May 23, 1989.

The series featured the Peanuts characters learning about events and people from American history. Due to the necessity of depicting important historical characters, This is America, Charlie Brown is one of the few Peanuts animated cartoons, along with the movie Bon Voyage, Charlie Brown (And Don't Come Back!!) and the TV specials What Have We Learned, Charlie Brown?, It's the Girl in the Red Truck, Charlie Brown, Snoopy's Reunion and It's the Pied Piper, Charlie Brown, to depict adults' faces; something that never happened in the Peanuts comic strip.

Most episodes of the series have not been rerun on television in the United States. However, since 2008, the first episode, The Mayflower Voyagers, has been aired immediately following A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.
