Happy Birthday, Great Pumpkin!

40 years ago today, “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” first aired on CBS. That network isn’t showing it this year.

Good Grief!!

But wait! ABC apparently owns it now, and they will appropriately show it tonight at 8 Eastern, 7 Central. All is right with the world, Halloween Harry is happy.

What? You’ve never heard of the Great Pumpkin? Which rises each Halloween from the best pumpkin patch and brings treats to the children who have been nice that year? Sounds vaguely familiar, somehow. But Charles Schultz made it work.

    You mean the most sincere pumpkin patch… BTW, for the second year in a row, I’ve got the Great Pumpkin Waltz playing on my myspace page to commemorate Halloween.
