While the rest of the Peanuts gang are preparing for their usual Halloween rituals, Linus is busy writing his letter to 'The Great Pumpkin', a figure who is seems to be a cross between Santa Claus and Pumpkinhead who he believes gives Halloween presents only to kids that really deserve it. He is ridiculed by everyone apart from Sally who is the only one who will join him in the pumpkin patch.

The trick-or-treating goes well for everyone apart from poor Charlie Brown who is only given rocks. That's probably what would happen to me if I went trick-or-treating as a child. Meanwhile, Snoopy dresses up as a WWI fighter pilot and pretends to be shot down behind enemy lines. But there's not enough of Pigpen, who is my favorite character.

A great TV special indeed. Kids back in 1966 didn't know how good they had it. With all of today's CGI technology I guess we have forgotten that, sometimes, the simple stories and animation can be the most endearing.

Also included on the Blu Ray is It's Magic, Charlie Brown. Annoyed at Snoopy for just sleeping all day Charlie Brown gives him a library card and tells him to go educate himself. The book he comes home with is full of magic tricks which he practices live in front a bunch of Chuck's friends. Some of the tricks work, others don't. But once the show is over Chuck is turned invisible as some kind of weird side-effect. Now with the powers of invisibility Chuck's only desire is to kick a football without Lucy yanking it out of the way at the last minute, as she so often does.

I think a lot more could have been done with this story. As soon as Charlie Brown goes invisible he orders Snoopy to fix him. Why not have more fun playing jokes on people? There was a lot of potential here but it's mainly wasted. Fun though.

By E. A. Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 May 2011
Format: DVD
Anybody who's read or watched Peanuts knows that Linus Van Pelt believes in the Great Pumpkin, who (allegedly) rises from the most sincere pumpkin patch in the world and gives presents to all the world's children. So you can guess what happens in "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," an enchanting little Halloween tale with lots of rocks, pumpkins and a World War I flying ace.

Autumn has come, and the Peanuts gang is embracing the season -- carving jack-o-lanterns, jumping into leaf piles (with wet suckers), and Charlie Brown kicking the football. It also means that Linus is writing his yearly letter to the Great Pumpkin and planning to sit in the pumpkin patch being sincere while all the other kids are out trick-or-treating. Since Sally has a crush on him, she plans to sit out there as well.

So while Sally and Linus are out there being sincere (much to the scorn of Lucy), the other kids congregate for a round of rather disappointing trick-or-treating ("I got a rock") before going on to an equally disappointing party. Meanwhile, the World War I flying ace (aka Snoopy) is shot down over enemy lines, and wanders through the French countryside. The real question is: will the Great Pumpkin appear?

"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" is one of those delightful Peanuts specials that everybody has seen, but somehow they never get stale or boring. And though nothing major or groundbreaking happens here, the humor is in the little running jokes that Charles Schulz littered his series with -- particularly in Linus' deep, devout belief in the Great Pumpkin.

So there's lots of funny dialogue ("You didn't tell me you were gonna kill it!" Linus howls when Lucy starts scooping out pumpkin goop), hilarious scenes (guess who all the little ghosts are!

love Peanuts. There, I said it, and I am not embarrassed either! I grew up with the antics of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the Peanuts gang making regular appearances on my childhood bedding, my Mom's kitchenware, in the daily newspaper comic strip, and a special coloured edition of the strip on Sundays in the Sunday paper. Then there were the holidays and specials...guaranteed to have an award winning Bill Melendez produced Peanuts prime time family special! Halloween was anticipated not only for the goodies at the school classroom party where we all got to dress up in our costumes, nor for the treats handed out by neighbours who admired our costumes as we came Trick or Treating (always politely, mind!). No, while that was loads of fun, the bigger treat was the anticipation.

The planning of what costume to wear, selecting a pumpkin to carve, the route to take for Trick or Treating , and the pre- excitement of the local children's parties. All these rather neatly summed up with deadly accuracy by Charles Schultz, when he created "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie, Brown". This was was a special so hotly anticipated for this holiday event that you simply did not make plans to watch any other channels, or to go anywhere. Mom and Dad sat down with children all across America, and sat and watched a humorously retold vignette of childhood. Not that trick or treating is an American invention. Oh no, that honour goes to the Scots, who carved neeps (turnips) and went guising (and still do) door to door for treats, before bringing their tradition to the US and Canada, where the pumpkin found favour as the lantern of choice!
