It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966) Poster

Alternate Versions

The version of the show broadcast on TV and older video releases are edited; they leave out a several of the "I got a rock!" scenes. (Some older video releases also cut the scene where Snoopy dances along to Schroeder's piano music.) The Paramount video release is unedited.
The original 1966 version had longer opening credits to acknowledge the sponsors. Modern broadcast versions and home video releases have the opening fade away after an owl approaches. One scene that followed was the gang, in their Halloween costumes, being frightened by a ghost dancing on a pumpkin. They run away, and the "ghost" then throws off his white sheet, and we see it was actually Snoopy, who continues dancing.
When recently aired on TV, these changes were made:
  • The scene where Charlie attempts to kick the football and Lucy pulls it away, even though she claims she has a signed document that prevents her from doing so was edited;
  • The trick or treating scene was extended. At the first house Lucy requests more candy for Linus; they visit three houses and at all three, Charlie Brown gets rocks.
