It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is a 1966 American prime time animated television special based on the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz.


A Halloween special, it was the third Peanuts special (and second holiday-themed special, following A Charlie Brown Christmas to be produced and animated by Bill Melendez. Its initial broadcast took place on October 27, 1966, on CBS, preempting My Three Sons. CBS re-aired the special annually through 2000, with ABC picking up the rights beginning in 2001, where it now airs annually at Halloween, followed by You're Not Elected, Charlie Brown, as if to emphasize the proximity between Halloween and Election Day; furthermore, the latter includes mention of the "Great Pumpkin" as well.

The program was nominated for an Emmy award. It has been issued on home video several times, including a Remastered Deluxe Edition of the special released by Warner Home Video on September 2, 2008, with the bonus feature It's Magic, Charlie Brown which was released in 1981.
