31 days of Halloween: It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown

It’s very hard to find the full show.

 

With autumn already in full swing, the Peanuts gang prepares for Halloween. Linus van Pelt writes his annual letter to The Great Pumpkin, despite Charlie Brown’s disbelief, Snoopy’s laughter, Patty’s assurance that the Great Pumpkin is a fake, and even his own sister’s violent threat to make her brother stop. When Linus goes out to mail the letter but cannot reach the mailbox, Lucy refuses to help him; so he uses his blanket to open the box, and throws the letter in.

On Halloween night, the gang, including Charlie Brown’s younger sister Sally, goes trick-or-treating. On the way, they stop at the pumpkin patch to ridicule Linus’ missing the festivities, just as he did last year; but Linus is convinced that the Great Pumpkin, recognizing the sincerity of his patch, will come, and even persuades Sally to stay and wait with him. The gang goes off, leaving Linus and Sally behind. During trick-or-treating, everyone gets assorted candy, apples, gum, cookies, money, and popcorn balls except for Charlie Brown, who gets a rock from every house they visit. After trick-or-treating, and another visit to the pumpkin patch, the gang goes off to Violet Gray’s Halloween party. Meanwhile, Snoopy, wearing his World War I flying ace gear, climbs aboard his Sopwith Camel (his doghouse) to fight with the Red Baron. After a fierce but losing battle, Snoopy makes his way across the countryside to briefly crash the Halloween party, where he is entertained by Schroeder’s playing of World War I tunes on his piano, and then goes to the pumpkin patch. When Linus sees a shadowy figure rising from the moonlit patch, he believes the Great Pumpkin has arrived, and faints. When Sally sees that it is only Snoopy, she angrily scolds Linus for making her miss the trick-or-treating festivities as well as the Halloween party as the kids come to take her away with them. As they leave, and still convinced that the Great Pumpkin will show up, Linus promises to put in a good word for them.

At 4:00 AM the next morning, Lucy wakes up and sees that Linus is not in his bed. She finds her brother asleep in the pumpkin patch, brings him home, takes his shoes off, and puts him to bed. Later, Charlie Brown and Linus are at a rock wall, commiserating about the previous night’s disappointments. When Charlie Brown says that he has done stupid things in his life also, Linus angrily vows to him that the Great Pumpkin will come to the pumpkin patch next year

31 days of Halloween: Positively Nerdy’s Twilight Zone

#19 – The Twilight Zone

Welcome to Positively Nerdy! This special Halloween episode comes to you directly from the Twilight Zone. While the Twilight Zone may not have anything specific to do with Halloween, this seemed as good a time as any to discuss the landmark series. It’s impossible to discuss The Twilight Zone alone so I went and found some help by way of Twilight Zone-super fan, Suine Hallock and Pixel Dan! Suine, Dan and I discuss our connection to and history with the series and our choices for the stand-out, must-see episodes the series has to offer. And since that’s not enough we wrap things up by revealing our personal favorite episodes! The Twilight Zone is an institution in popular culture and genre entertainment and that’s why we celebrate it!
