[The movie starts with Linus and Lucy exiting their house, Linus finds an Apple on the ground, picks it up, and takes a bite, then throws it in the trash bin. Then Linus finds leaves on the ground and kicks them, then they stop at a pumpkin patch, Linus finds a small pumpkin and shows it to Lucy, Lucy shakes her head no, Linus finds a medium pumpkin and shows it to Lucy, Lucy shakes her hands no, and points to the pumpkins, Linus finds a large pumpkin and shows it to Lucy, Lucy Nods her head yes while patting the pumpkin, then they leave to their house and go through a fence, Linus can’t get the pumpkin through so he rolls the pumpkin around the fence, he tries to slow it down so he doesn’t hit Lucy, but he rolls with the pumpkin and crashes into their front steps, Lucy glares at him, she uses body language to tell him to bring it in, Linus brings the pumpkin in, and thuds it down on sheets of paper, he wipes his head saying “Whew!” Lucy comes in with a knife and stabs the pumpkin on the head and cuts it in a circle, and she takes one lair of the insides out]

Ohhhh! You didn’t tell me you were gonna kill it [cries]

[Scene fades to Lucy and the gang going trick-or-treating, Bats come out of a old house, floating pumpkins surrounded them, skeletons appear behind them, a black cat appears in front of them, and a witch is chasing them, the gang run into a pumpkin patch and hide, they look up to see if it’s safe]

[“It’s the great pumpkin Charlie Brown” title appears, “Written by Charles M. Schulz” title appears, a owl then flies toward the screen, blackout] [scene fades to Snoopy blowing on a leaf and blowing it into a pile of other leaves]

Charlie Brown:
Thanks, old pal!

[Snoopy wags his tail, scene cuts to Linus Licking a Yellow Spiraled Sucker, and he looks at the off-screen pile of leaves]


[Linus then runs toward the pile of leaves, he jumps real, high, and lands in the leaves butt first]

Never jump in a pile of leaves with a wet sucker

[Charlie Brown eye rolls and gives Linus a waving fist]

[Lucy stops by with a football]

Say, Charlie Brown, I got a football! How ‘bout practicing a few place kicks? I’ll hold the ball, and you come running and kick it.

Charlie Brown:
Oh brother, I don’t mind the dishonesty, have as much mind your opinion of me! You must think I’m stupid!

Oh, come on, Charlie Brown!

Charlie Brown:

I’ll hold it steady!

[Charlie Brown walks to the other side]

Charlie Brown:


Charlie Brown:
You just want me to come running up to kick that ball, so you can pull it away and see me land flat on my back and kill myself!

This time you can trust me! See? Here’s a signed document testifying that I promise not to pull it away!

Charlie Brown:
It is signed [he walks away] it’s a signed document, I guess if you have a signed document in your position, you can’t go wrong! [he stops walking] This year I’m really gonna kick that football!

[Charlie Brown runs up, tries to kick the football, but Lucy pull’s it away (again) Charlie Brown goes flying in the air screaming and drops the document, and lands on his back with a big THUD!!!]

[Lucy Catches the document]

Peculiar thing about this document, it was never notarized!

[Scene fades to the Van Pelt’s house]

[Writing] “Dear, Great Pumpkin, I’m looking forward to your arrival on Halloween night. I hope you bring me lots of presents”

[Charlie Brown enters]

Charlie Brown:
Who are you writing to Linus?

This is the time of year to write to the great pumpkin! On Halloween night the great pumpkin rises out of his pumpkin patch and flies through the air with his bag of toys to all the children!
