It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown to air October 19 & 28, 2016 on ABC

ABC will be broadcasting It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown twice this October: an edited version on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 from 8:00 - 8:30 PM (Eastern/Pacific), and the full unedited version together with You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown on Friday, October 28, 2016 from 8:00 - 9:00 PM (Eastern/Pacific).

This October is the 50th anniversary of the It's the Great Pumpkin - it was first broadcast on October 27, 1966.  As far as we know, there will be no special TV commemoration of the anniversary; but at least the original unedited special will air 50 years and 1 day after it first aired!

Glad to see this is on, but it should have "You're Not Elected" playing with it during the first airing, and a 50th Anniversary Celebration Special for the 2nd airing. It would be nice if a Celebration Special aired, along with the Great Pumpkin short from the "Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show." I'm sure not many viewers would remember that one, but I bet many would appreciate it.

Good news! ABC has added a second unedited showing, together with "You're Not Elected" on October 28. I've updated the blog post.
