3 Things I Have Learned Never To Discuss With People: Religion, Politics, & The Great Pumpkin

Today is the 40th anniversary of the beloved reality program, er... television special, "It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!". CBS aired this half-hour, Emmy-nominated animation for the first time on October 27, 1966, and the Charles M. Schultz Peanuts masterpiece has been rebroadcast every year since (it changed hands in 2001 when ABC picked up the rights).

This charming story of a boy and his enchanted delusions of benevolent gourds is a timeless treat that delivers a full-force dose of the warm fuzzies.

Watch it tonight with your Sopwith Camel and security blanket.
