Pumpkins Old & New

Tomorrow night, two Halloween specials are scheduled to air at 8pm EST. Set the DVRs!

One is the classic It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Like his best friend's never ending quest to kick the football, Linus once again attempts to bare witness to The Great Pumpkin. This 1/2 hour special may be over 40 years old, but does not show its age (unlike some folks I could name).

Also airing Wednesday night (twice in one hour), is the new special Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins From Outer Space featuring the characters (and the voices) from the hit animated movie released earlier this year. The plot has to do with alien mutant pumpkins attempting to take over the Earth. Could they be lead by none other than The Great Pumpkin? Doubtful, but I'll be watching anyway.
