Monday night I watched "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," even though it was the day after Halloween. This time, however, I watched it on DVD, so I could watch it in its glorious entirety. Besides cutting out the scene with Snoopy and Schroeder, I also confirmed the fact that the network also axed a set piece featuring Lucy coaxing Charlie Brown to kick the football. Axing the most iconic trope in Peanutsdom! Good Grief!
One of these days, though I want to see an alternate ending wherein the Great Pumpkin does rise out of the pumpkin patch and give tons of toys and goodies to Linus and Sally--
And then inflict a violent vengeance on Lucy and the rest of the kids who didn't believe in his existence.
