I saw a commercial last night for “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and was immediately transported to my childhood. I haven’t seen this TV special in years. Now I have a tiny excuse to watch — a pre-schooler. I wonder if my son will enjoy it, if he will get the storyline. Although I’m probably over thinking it. He LOVES “Cars” and understands enough of that storyline, so I’m sure lil’ ‘ol Charlie Brown won’t be too hard to comprehend.
This show has been around since 1966 — that’s 42 years! Amazing that something like this can be a delight to so many generations.
It doesn’t come on until 8:00 p.m. (ABC) so I’ll probably record it and we’ll watch it tomorrow at an earlier hour. It’s the perfect show to get into the spirit of Halloween and fall.
