The Halloween classic aired for the first just before Halloween 1966. The initial broadcast. on CBS, took place October 27, 1966. I was just one year old but I know I loved it then and still do now.

The Charles Schultz classic is part of our family's Halloween every year. It's just not October unless I see the "Great Pumpkin".

This year you can stream "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" on Apple TV. If you subscribe to Apple TV then you can stream Charlie and pals all month long!

Now I know not everyone has Apple TV and maybe you cannot stream the Great Pumpkin, but fear not the Halloween classic will be available for everyone this month!

This year "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" will air on "public" television. For the first time, the Halloween classic will air on PBS on Sunday, October 24th. "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown will air on PBS and PBS Kids on Oct. 24 at 7:30 ET/PT. This is the first time the Halloween special will air on the PBS platforms." This is according to a recent CNET article.

Be sure to put an alarm in your calendar for Sunday, October 24th at 7:30 pm on PBS so YOU don't miss the Great Pumpkin! My question is...will Linus finally meet the Great Pumpkin? HAPPY HALLOWEEN ~ Shawn
