No matter how often we see it, we'll still be happy to wait in the pumpkin patch with Linus, and wait-for-it when Lucy pulls the football away from Charlie Brown, and delight when Snoopy is on the other end of the apple when Lucy goes bobbing.

May not be one of the better Charlie Brown specials but it sure is a great celebration of not just the Autumn season, but of Halloween and what a little faith in the tradition can do to a young child...

Cinema Crazed

Director Bill Melendez concentrates on atmosphere more than anything else; he sets up unrelated jokes, or simply enjoys watching the autumn leaves fall gently to the ground.

Audience Reviews for It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Perfect little film for families of all ages. This simple tale as some of the most memorable characters in history, "The Peanut Gang." This group of kids have a blast together, and it is a blast to watch them go about their days/nights in these holiday specials. Here, Linus believes that there is a Great Pumpkin that deliver's toys to children on Halloween night, just as Santa does for Christmas. It's a sweet little tale that really broadens the views that children have on the spirit of the holidays (of many kinds). There is even a few sweet and tender moments (albeit funny) that will have your heart screaming with joy. I love these short stories, and this is definitely not one to miss. As far as kids shorts go, this one is perfect!

This is probably my favourite Charlie Brown movie, it's very unique, I mean who had ever heard of the "great pumpkin" before? It's very funny as usual in the classic Charlie Brown way. If you like the comics and haven't seen the movies this is a good one to start with, especially around Halloween time.

I think I like watching Charlie Brown than actually reading the comics. The characters always do the cutest things, like dancing silently and pinking up. There's something about animation that allows it to manifest the most hard-to-describe emotions. Linus is my favorite with his neverending perseverance.
