The Peanuts gang returns in It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown


The Peanuts gang returns in It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Getting right to the point, it’s not Halloween until Snoopy says so. The same can be said for several other holidays, from Christmas to Thanksgiving. And no matter what kind of argument you use against the point, the fact remains: the holiday just doesn’t feel like the holiday unless you get to experience the Peanuts special, just like you did the year before, and the year before that, and the year before that. Once again, ABC is happy to help us out on the quest, as the classic Peanuts Halloween special, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, will air on Thursday, October 27th, at 8pm.

Created by late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz, the Halloween special first ran in 1966, showcasing how the Peanuts gang celebrates the spooky day. Linus takes center stage, hoping that he will finally be visited by the Great Pumpkin in the pumpkin patch. Meanwhile, Charlie Brown’s big hope is a successful night at a Halloween costume party.

As an additional bonus, ABC will follow the Great Pumpkin’s story with another Peanuts special, You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown. Written, of course, by Charles M. Schulz, this election-based special features Linus running for class president, with Lucy and Charlie Brown managing his campaign.

ABOUT PEANUTS
On October 2, 1950 the PEANUTS comic strip launched in seven American newspapers. Who would have guessed the impact the brand would have around the world for decades to come. Nearly 60 years later, the comic strip appears in over 2,200 newspapers, in 75 countries and 21 languages. PEANUTS animated specials have become a seasonal tradition and thousands of consumer products are available in virtually all retail channels. Charlie Brown kicking the football, Linus and his blanket and Lucy leaning over Schroeder’s piano are images to which everyone can relate. Such phrases as Security Blanket and Good Grief have become a part of the global vernacular. Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez’s association with Charles Schulz stretches back to 1965 with A Charlie Brown Christmas, which debuted on CBS in 1965 with Mendelson as executive producer and Bill Melendez as animator and director. The three men continued their long-term association until Schulz’s death, working together on 50 PEANUTS network specials and four feature films. The network specials won five Emmys, two Peabodys and 18 other Emmy nominations.
