It's hobgoblins and treats galore. Join the "Peanuts" gang as they await the arrival of the legendary Great Pumpkin who is bringing gifts for good little boys and girls. How will Charlie Brown come out? See more »

At the beginning when Lucy and Linus are headed to the pumpkin patch, Linus has his blanket with him. When they pick out a pumpkin and head back, Linus no longer has his blanket. See more »

Linus and Charlie Brown are at the wall and Charlie tells Linus that he's done stupid things in his life, too. Then Linus keeps on shouting during the credits about how sitting and waiting in a pumpkin patch wasn't stupid. See more »
Brings back a flood of memories every time I watch it...
I grew up with this and all the other Peanuts specials. I remember sitting up until 8:00pm (late for me at that age) and loving it. I remember the Mounds and Almond Joy ads. I even remember the catchy CBS "Special Presentation" intro. What can be said for this classic that hasn't been said before? From Linus and Sally in the pumpkin patch all night to the still quoted "I got a rock!" line, not many holiday specials that don't involve Charlie Brown and the gang bring a smile to my face like It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Thanks for the memories, Mr. Schulz.
My grade: A+
