News and interesting stuff about the world of Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts
Sounds like good news but there's something that bother me.What made ABC decide to air this special and Great Pumpkin the day before the actual holiday?
To PeruAlonso1:Wait until ABC announces that "A Charlie Brown Christmas" will air on Tuesday, December 23, 2014.
PeruAlonso1:When "It's the Great Pumpkin" and "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" were first shown, neither was broadcast on the holiday that they celebrate. "It's the Great Pumpkin" was first aired on October 27, 1966, and "Thanksgiving" aired on November 20, 1973 (Thanksgiving was the 22nd that year). So ABC is not breaking with tradition.And in the years when ABC has shown them on the exact holidays, I've heard from some people who aren't happy about that, because they're busy doing other things, like trick-or-treating or visiting with family. So there's no firm precedent, and it's hard to say which choice is better for ABC to make since people have different preferences!
