It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Guest post from: Issac Bird

Charlie_Brown_pumpkin_patch It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is a great children’s Halloween program to watch that is often shown on satellite TV from This movie is very popular for both children and adults to watch because children love the cartoon characters and their parents remember Charlie Brown when they were young kids. There is nothing better than snuggling on a couch during a cool fall night watching this movie.

There are many popular characters in this movie that most parents remember including Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and Pigpen. The plot of the story is about a tale that is going around the neighborhood about a mysterious pumpkin. None of the friends believe in the tale except for Linus.
