It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown to air Thursday, October 31, 2013 on ABC

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown will make its annual visit to television screens on Halloween night, Thursday, October 31, 2013 from 8-9 PM (Eastern/Pacific) on ABC.

Happily, unlike last year, ABC is giving the classic Peanuts special an hour-long time slot, so it will air unedited together with a shortened version of You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown.

If you missed the show, you can watch it online at hulu.com during the first couple of weeks of November.

Have to wonder why they aren't airing it earlier as well--plenty of kids will still be out trick-or-treating or at parties at 8 p.m. Seems like in the past they usually air it twice--?

ABC has only aired it twice in two years: 2009 and 2010. It is too bad the special isn't airing a couple of days beforehand, but on the other hand, you can imagine that airing it on Halloween seems to make sense to the programmers.

Thanks for this info ! I'm going to have to set the DVR because I'll be out trick or treating. I'm going as Rick Springfield this year. Happy Halloween !!!

You're welcome, Big Snoopy. Going trick or treating as Rick Springfield will make it hard to not talk to strangers... :-)

"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" will air from 7-8 PM Central Time. If you're still not sure when it will air in your part of the country, check your local TV listings.
