Linus believes that The Great Pumpkin will bring toys to all the children who believe in him on Halloween night. Lucy, Snoopy, Sally, Pigpen and just about everyone else except maybe Charlie Brown, think he is making a fool out of himself. They go out for Trick or Treat for candy but Linus and Sally stay in the pumpkin patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin to come.
There is hope, faith, expectation and caring. Hey, either you belive in Santa, The Easter Bunny or the Great Pumpkin, or you don't! We even have Snoopy, the W.W.I. flying ace in a dog fight with The Red Baron behind enemy lines.
This is arguably one of the 2 or possibly 3 best Peanut features Charles Schulz ever created. It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown has wit and wisdom that not only children can relate to, but adults can understand also.
The bonus feature: You're not elected, Charlie Brown is another 25 minute feature. Linus is running for student body president and it's a close race. Charlie Brown is his campaign manager and of course he has help from Lucy, Snoopy, Woodstock and all the rest. During the debate with his opponent, Linus is on a role until he brings up the subject of the Great Pumpkin (that's the tie in with the other feature.) Of course, the election results are a surprise. Certainly not as good as the first feature, but entertaining none the less.
Watching the Peanuts Classics with my family are some of my most cherished memories. Since there was no such thing as home PC's, VCR's etc. You had to make sure you were home since these only aired once a year. So we prepared ahead of time snacks, drinks our favorite chair (I laid on the carpeted floor in front of our new "color" tv) glued to the screen remembering each scene by heart but just as excited as seeing the show for the very first time.
This may seem crazy but I always hope Charlie Brown actually gets to kick the ball and I always feel sorry for Sally every time I watch the show, hoping she will finally wise up and go off trick or treating with the other kids but of course she's stuck in time to sit in the Pumpkin Patch smitten by the love bug with Linus whose only interested in presents from the Great Pumpkin.
Now that I own my own DVD I will watch "Its The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" through out the year when ever the urge hits. My only complaint with any of the Peanuts Classics is that they are way to short in length.
I remember these from when I was young. Charlie Brown is always some clean movies for kids and are fun to watch too. The way that Linus stays thinking that the great pumpkin is coming is classic. Great Halloween movie for kids. There is also another old Charlie Brown movie along with the this one. It has only been available on video double feature until now. It is a magic one staring snoopy. I have been looking for that one forever.
one of my favorite charlie brown movies.this dvd is packed with good humor,great music,and all the classic antics of good 'ol charlie brown,pluss the part where snoopy imagines he's a wwII flying ace keeps my kids in stitches,no matter how many times they've seen it.A plus family entertainment1
When I was a kid I anxiously awaited every year for the Halloween specials to come on prime time TV. Charlie Brown Halloween was one of my favorites.
Now it's on DVD for my kids to see anytime they want.
This is a Halloween Classic that deserves to be a part of your Child's dvd collection.
I still think it's sad that Charlie Brown gets rocks for trick or treating and not candy like the other kids.
