With all the excitement around the launch of Great Pumpkin Island I thought I’d pass along the news that the TV special it’s based on, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, will air here in the USA on ABC-TV on Thursday, October 28 at 8 pm. The original 1966 TV special will air first and will then be followed by another special called, You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown. It’s an election-day special in which Linus runs for class president. It originally aired in 1972.
So tune in on Thursday October 28 to watch a full hour of the Peanuts and see how good a job the Poptropica creators did in bringing the TV special to life on Great Pumpkin Island.
And don’t forget: Great Pumpkin Island opens up for everyone on Poptropica this week on October 14.
