Product Details

Product Description


Charlie Brown gets rocks in his trick-or-treat bag, Linus awaits a visitation from the Great Pumpkin in his terribly sincere pumpkin patch (while the adoring little Sally sits tight with him), Snoopy falls asleep, Lucy harasses Schroeder, and Pig-Pen kicks up a dust storm even beneath his costume in this classic television broadcast. Funny stuff, but also graced with Charles Schultz's more poignant and gently satiric themes from the 1960s on the influence of faith, failure, and hope in our lives. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Dated, Yet Still Tons of Fun; A True Classic! Nov. 2 2003
By A Customer
Yes, you read correctly: four stars. Not five. Why, might you ask? Am I crazy? No, I am not. At least I don't think I am :)
I am a huge fan of Peanuts. Every year, I look forward to the holiday specials on television. IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN is one of them. Yet, I must admit: much like A CHARLIE BROWN THANKSGIVING and IT'S THE EASTER BEAGLE, CHARLIE BROWN, this show is kind of dated. I do still love it -- the characters and classic Peanuts gags we have all come to cherish. But truth be told, the animation in these earlier specials is sort of crude and the timing between a lot of the dialogue is very very very offbeat. So much so that it can actually get boring at times.
Yet I still love them. There is just something about these shows that we can all relate to again and again. Yes, the later films, tv shows and specials are all better drawn, and the timing is right on the dot; and some have a much smoother feel.
But these, I think, contain a certain nostalgic feeling. And that's why they are "classics."

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Great All These Decades Later! Oct. 27 2003
Format:VHS Tape
What's not to like about this treasured Halloween "Peanuts" tale? There's the fabulous piano music score. ... Linus and his blanket keeping watch in the nearby pumpkin patch, awaiting the infamous "Great Pumpkin". ... Sally getting gypped out of "Tricks or Treats". ... Snoopy dueling the Red Baron atop his doghouse. ... And, of course, the hilarity (and sadness at the same time) of watching Charlie Brown accumulate a bagful of rocks on Halloween Night.
These indelible set-pieces make up one of the most endearing, and timeless, holiday classics ever broadcast on television.
"It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", first telecast way back in 1966, will forever be a holiday favorite...whether it be on broadcast TV (remember the original TV commercials for Coca-Cola, McDonald's, and Dolly Madison Cakes?), VHS Video, or DVD.
Now ... if only some kindly neighbor could just toss a Snicker's Bar (or maybe even a fresh Dolly Madison Cupcake) into Charlie Brown's bag, I think we'd all feel better. :-)

Have you heard of dvd, and wonder what dvd looks like, have you seen cds or games for computers like Gateway2000? If you have, that is what a dvd looks like, and in my opinion the best thing about dvds is, that when you come to the end of a movie or (have a favorite part in a movie) you don't even have to rewind the dvd or even fast foward from the end to the begining or rewind or fast foward to your favorite part. Charlie Brown (Peter Robbins) has got an invation to a halloween party and he and most of the other kids are going trick or treating and then to the halloween party. Expect for Charlie Brown's best freind Linus (Chris Shea) and Charlie brown's little sister (Katy Steinberg) remain in the pumkin patch waiting for the Great Pumkin. Linus (of course) is the only one of the kids that believes in the Great Pumkin and everybody (expect for Charlie Brown's little sister) laughs at Linus and tells him the Great Pumkin is a f-a-k-e. If you are a nig Peanuts fan this is just the special to buy and watch every halloween.

5.0 out of 5 stars The #1 Halloween Classic! Nov. 21 2002
The Halloween Special never caught on quite as strongly as the Christmas Special over the past few decades, but there was a time when they were something many of us looked forward to annually, and today some of them are now considered just as much classics as their Christmas counterparts. There was the Garfield Halloween Special, the live-action specials "The Worst Witch" and "The Halloween That Almost Wasn't" (known as 'The Night Dracula Saved the World' on VHS), Bugs Bunny's Halloween Special, "Raggedy Ann and Andy and the Pumpkin Who Couldn't Smile," and a few others. The king of the Halloween Specials, of course, was the 1960's classic, "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!"
It's Halloween, and everyone is getting ready to go trick or treating, followed by the big Halloween party at Violet's house. Somehow, Charlie Brown has recieved an invitation too! Everyone is excited! But Linus has different plans. Linus is a firm believer in The Great Pumpkin, Halloween's answer to Santa Claus. It seems that every Halloween Night, the Great Pumpkin flies through the sky in search of the most sincere pumpkin patch around, and when he finds it, the lucky kids who are waiting there for him will get tons of presents and candy! Everyone thinks Linus must be crazy! But Charlie Brown's little sister, Sally, has a huge crush on Linus, and has decided to take a chance on him. She agrees to give up trick or treats and spend the night sitting in the pumpkin patch with Linus, waiting for The Great Pumpkin to arrive.
"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," is loads of Halloween fun with our favorite group of sassy comic strip kids. Snoopy performs his legendary WW1 reenactments, Lucy is meaner than ever, and Charlie Brown couldn't be Charlie Brownier.

5.0 out of 5 stars You the Man, Charlie Brown. Nov. 10 2002
By tvtv3
When you think of Halloween movies, there really aren't many Halloween movies that the whole family can watch and enjoy. Most Halloween pictures are horror movies not suitable for anyone younger than sixteen. There's GHOSTBUSTERS, but many parents won't let young children watch that because the ghosts are too scary. E.T. takes place at Halloween, but nobody really considers E.T. to be a Halloween movie. The only Halloween picture that the whole family can enjoy is the little 30 minute cartoon that was made for television, IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN.
Out of all the Charlie Brown cartoon specials, this one probably focuses on Charlie the least. Instead, the central character is Linus VanPelt and his sincere and patient wait for The Great Pumpkin. They sure don't make them like this anymore.
The DVD includes the bonus feature, YOU'RE NOT ELECTED, CHARLIE BROWN. The class election is about to be held and Linus thinks Charlie would be a great class president. However, Lucy takes a poll and finds that only 2% of the student body would even consider voting for Chuck. But a lot of people think Linus would make a good president. That is until he makes a speech the day before the election about The Great Pumpkin. The cartoon isn't as memorable as IT'S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN, but with it's focus more on Linus and reference to the Great Pumpkin, it makes a nice supplement.
