Peanuts Classic ‘It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ Not on Broadcast TV This Year – Screamin’ Scott
For many years, fans of the comic favorite Peanuts have always looked forward to a tradition of the TV classic
“It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” It looks like again, Apple TV+ is holding it hostage from children everywhere.
Last year PBS heard the outcry from fans, but this year, confirmed it will not be the case this year. Apple TV+ will be available for free from Oct. 28 through the 31st. Other than that, you’ve got to pay for it.
PBS took to Twitter and said, “We’ll all have to watch for a different pumpkin patch this year. PBS does not have the right to show it anymore.”
“The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” started its run back in 1965. It’s part of my childhood forever. Sure, I could throw on the DVD easily any time of the year. But who plays DVDs much anymore? My DVD player has dust on it. Another reason I loved the Halloween special was the music soundtrack by jazz great Vince Guaraldi. Vince cornered the market on Halloween and Christmas music that is so recognizable to the ears when you listen you know it’s the Peanuts music. So this year, we are going to really feel like Charlie Brown, as we are getting a rock this Halloween.
