This one never packed the emotional wallop of the iconic Christmas show, even though some of the music gets recycled. But it has its moments.

The whole notion of pumpkin patch sincerity is Schulz at his best.

And it's always good to hear Charlie Brown say, “I got a rock.”

This might have offered the most dramatic illustration of the fact that “Peanuts” was an adult-free zone — a big part of its magic. When Linus falls asleep out in the pumpkin patch on Halloween night, no parents check on him. It's his sister who brings him inside.
