Since 1966, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown half hour animation special has aired on national television annually, just before Halloween. As part of the PEANUTS video and comic strip library, the brilliant creator Charles M. Schultz has the gang celebrate Halloween. Charlie Brown goes to a costume party, Snoopy battles The Red Barron from atop his doghouse, all while Linus and Sally wait for the arrival of The Great Pumpkin in the pumpkin patch.
No matter how old or young you are, this is a Halloween staple. Get into the Halloween spirit by gathering friends and family to watch this special tonight, Tuesday October 27th, and tomorrow night, Wednesday October 28th, on ABC at 9pm. You can even celebrate The Great Pumpkin with this delicious recipe!
