It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
Originally aired October 27, 1966. The Peanuts gang celebrates by trick-or-treating and attending the big Halloween party, while Linus and Sally spend the evening in the pumpkin patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin to arrive. "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" is, without a doubt, the most cherished Halloween special of all time. It was a special occasion to catch this on TV every year. While TV commercials tend to annoy me, I actually looked forward to those that accompanied this Halloween special: candy ads for Mounds and Almond Joy, Caramello, Peppermint Patties, and others. Enjoy watching the famous CBS spinning logo, a couple of 80s sponsor announcements, and then a link to the TV special itself.
