Peanuts: Charlie Brown and his friends together with Snoopy bring you a special episode for Halloween.

Note: in the beginning they don't speak, but they will later.

- Ohh. You didn't tell me you were gonna kill it.
- Ahhh.

- Thanks old pal.
- Charge!
- Never jump into a pile of leaves with a wet sucker.

- Say, Charlie Brown I've got a football. How about practicing a few place kicks. I'll hold the ball and you come running and kick it.
- Oh, brother. I don't mind your dishonesty half as much as I mind your opinion of me. You must think I'm stupid.
- Oh come on, Charlie Brown.
- No.
- I'll hold it steady.
- No.
- Please.
- You just want me to come running up to kick that ball so you can pull it away and see me land flat on my back and kill myself.
- This time you can trust me. See, here's a signed document testifying that I promise not to pull it away. It is signed.
- It's a signed document. I guess if you have a signed document in your possession you can't go wrong. This year I'm really gonna kick that football. Augh!!
- Peculiar thing about this document. It was never notarized.

- Dear Great Pumpkin. I'm looking forward to your arrival on Halloween night. I hope you will bring me lots of presents.
- Who are you writing to, Linus?
- This is the time of the year to write to the Great Pumpkin. On Halloween night the Great Pumpkin rises out of his pumpkin patch and flies through the air with his bag of toys for all the children.
- You must be crazy. When are you going to stop believing in something that isn't true.
- When you stop believing in that fellow with the red suit and white beard who goes ho ho ho.
- We are obviously separated by denominational differences.
- You must get discouraged because more people believe in Santa Claus than in you. Well, let's face it, Santa Claus has had more publicity But being number two, perhaps you try harder.

- Not again! Writing a letter to a stupid pumpkin?? You make me the laughing stock of the neighbourhood. All they talk about is my little brother who always writes to the Great Pumpkin. You better cut it out right now or I'll pound you.
- There are three things I have learned: never to discuss with people religion, politics and the Great Pumpkin.
- You're wasting your time, The Great Pumpkin is a fake.
- Everyone tells me you are a fake but I believe in you. P.S. If you really are a fake don't tell me, I don't want to know.
- What are you doing Linus?
- I'd rather not say you might laugh
- Oh, I'd never laugh at you Linus, you're so intelligent.
- I'm writing to the Great Pumpkin
- You say the cutest things.
- On Halloween night the 'Great Pumpkin' rises out of the pumpkin patch. Then flies through the air to bring toys to all the good little children everywhere. Wouldn't you like to sit with me in the pumpkin patch on Halloween night and wait for the Great Pumpkin?
- Oh, I'd love to, Linus.
- What's going on here? What are you trying to do to my little sister?

- And how do you think you're gonna mail that letter? You can't possibly reach the mailbox and I'm not gonna help you.
- Hey, I got an invitation to a Halloween party.
- Is the invitation to Violet's party Charlie Brown?
- Yes, it's the first time I've ever been invited to a party.
- Charlie Brown if you got an invitation it was a mistake. There were two lists Charlie Brown, one to invite and one not to invite. You must have been put on the wrong list.
 
- A person should always choose a costume which is in direct contrast to her own personality.
- Is Linus taking me to the party?
- That stupid blockhead of a brother of mine is out in the pumpkin patch making his yearly fool of himself.
- Boy, is he strange,
- But maybe there is a 'Great Pumpkin'.
- Every year Linus misses tricks or treats and then the Halloween party.
- He'll never learn.
- Do I get to go trick or treating this year, big brother?
- Sure Sally.
- Oh boy. Oh boy.Oh boy. How do we do it?
- All you have to do is walk up to a house, ring the doorbell and say 'tricks or treats'.
- Are you sure it's legal?
- Of course it's legal.
- I wouldn't want to be accused of taking part in a rumble.
- Oh, good grief!
- Is that you Patty?
- No.
- Where is Charlie Brown?
- Here I am. I had a little trouble with the scissors.
- They'll never guess it's me under here.
- Hello, Pig Pen glad you could make it?
- How did you know it was me?
- What in the world kind of a costume is that?
- He's a World War I flying ace.
- Now I've heard everything. All right everybody we'll go trick or treating and then over to Violet's for the big Halloween party.


- Hey, have you come to sing pumpkin carols?
- You blockhead you're gonna miss all the fun just like last year.
- Don't talk like that, The Great Pumpkin knows which kids have been good and which kids have been bad. you'll be sorry
- Oh good grief!
- He'll come here because I have the most sincere pumpkin patch and he respects sincerity.
- Do you really think he'll come?
- Tonight the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch. He flies through the air and brings toys to all the children of the world
- That's a good story.
- You don't believe the story of the Great Pumpkin?
- I thought little girls always believed everything that was told to them I thought little girls were innocent and trusting.
- Welcome to the twentieth century.
- All right. Once and for all, are you coming or are you staying? We can't waste all night.
- I'm glad you came back, Sally. We'll just sit here in this pumpkin patch and you'll see the Great Pumpkin with your own eyes.
- If you try to hold my hand I'll slug you.
- Each year the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's got to pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look all around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.

- Tricks or treats money or eats.
- Could I have an extra piece of candy for my stupid brother? He couldn't come with us because he's sitting in a pumpkin patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin. It's so embarrassing to have to ask for something extra for that blockhead, Linus.
- I got five pieces of candy.
- I got a chocolate bar.
- I got a quarter.
- I got a rock.
- Trick or treat.
- Gee, I got a candy bar.
- Boy, I got three cookies.
- Hey, I got a package of gum.
- I got a rock.
- Trick or treat.
- I got a popcorn ball.
- I got a fudge bar.
- I got a pack of gum.
- I got a rock.
- By the way. what ever happened to the World War l flying ace?
- Oh, he's probably getting ready to take off in his Sopwith Camel on the next dawn patrol. His mission is. to find the red Baron and shoot him down. Here's the World War I flying ace climbing into the cockpit of his Sopwith Camel. 'Contact', he shouts. Here's the World War I flying ace.

- Imagine he's down behind enemy land making his way across the front countryside.

- Come on. Let's get going. It's time for the Halloween party.
- Has the Great pumpkin been by? Ha, ha, ha, ha.
- What blockheads, sitting in a pumpkin patch in the middle of the night.
- You've missed trick or treats and now you're going to miss the Halloween party.
- What a way to spend Halloween.
- Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
- You think you're so smart. Just wait until the Great pumpkin comes. He'll be here, You can bet on that.
- Linus knows what he's talking about, Linus knows what he's doing.
- All right, where is he?
- He'll be here.
- I hope so I have my reputation to think of, you know. And just think of all the fun we're missing.
- Just look. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.
- Charlie Brown, you'll have to model for us.
- Me? You want me to model??
- Sure, Charlie Brown, You'll be the perfect model.
- Turn him around.
- If we shape the eyes like this. and the nose like this. and a mouth like this. Yes, that's the way. Thank you Charlie Brown, you were a perfect model.

- All right. all right. Let's bob for apples.
- This is the way to do it.
- Yeah Lucy, you should be good at this, you have the perfect mouth for it.
- Augh. My lips touched dog lips. Bleah. Augh. Poisoned dog lips. Bleah. Augh.

- If anyone had told me I'd be waiting in a pumpkin patch on Halloween night, I'd have said they were crazy.
- Just think, Sally, when the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch, He'll be here to see him. What's that? What's that? I hear the Great Pumpkin.  There he is. There he is. It's the Great Pumpkin. He's rising up out of the pumpkin patch.
- Ohhhhhh.
- What happened?? Did I faint? When did he leave us? Did he leave us any toys?
- I was robbed. I spent the whole night waiting for the Great Pumpkin when I could have been out for tricks or treats. Halloween is over... I've missed it, You blockhead! You've kept me up all night waiting for the Great Pumpkin and all that came was a beagle. I didn't get a chance to go out for tricks or treats and it was all your fault. I'll sue. What a fool I was. I could have had candy and apples and gum and cookies and money and all sorts of things. But no,
I had to listen to you. You blockhead. What a fool I was. Tricks or treats come only once a year and I missed it by sitting in a pumpkin patch with a blockhead. You owe me restitution.
- You've heard about fury and a woman scorned haven't you?
- Yes, I guess I have.
- Well, that's nothing compared to the fury of a woman who has been cheated out of tricks or treats.
- Hey. aren't you going to wait and greet the Great Pumpkin, uh? It won't be long now. If the Great Pumpkin comes, I'll still put in a good word for you.
Good grief. I said "if". I meant when he comes. I'm doomed. One little slip like that can cause the Great Pumpkin to pass you by. Oh Great Pumpkin where are you?

- Well, another Halloween has come and gone.
- Yes, Charlie Brown.
- I don't understand it. I went trick or treating and all I got was a bagful of rocks. I suppose you spent all night in the pumpkin patch and the Great Pumpkin never showed up?
- Nope.
- Well, don't take it too hard, Linus. I've done a lot of stupid things in my life too.
- Stupid?!?!? What do you mean stupid?? Just wait till next year, Charlie Brown. You'll see... next year at this same time I'll find a pumpkin patch that is real sincere and I'll sit in that pumpkin patch until the 'Great Pumpkin' appears. He'll rise out of that pumpkin patch and he'll fly through the air with his bag of toys. The Great Pumpkin will appear and I'll be waiting for him. I'll be there. I'll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch and I'll see the Great Pumpkin. Just wait and see Charlie Brown. I'll see the Great Pumpkin. I'll see the Great Pumpkin. Just wait Charlie Brown. The Great Pumpkin will appear and I'll be waiting for him...
