When I was a kid, there was not much on the TV that I looked forward to more than the airing of Charlie Brown specials. It was one of those things – like carving a pumpkin or decorating the tree – that signalled the change of the seasons and holidays. There was a special section in our TV Guide just for airings of kids TV specials – and in typing that I realized it just dated me in so many ways it’s not even funny!!
I can just hear my kids saying, “Paper printed tv listings? And you mean that there weren’t kids shows on ALL THE TIME? Wow, mom, was the car invented when you were little?!”
What’s worse, is that somehow my own kids don’t have the same appreciation for Charlie Brown that I always have. They think he and the Peanuts gang are old fashioned and boring. That makes me a little sad, but I’ll share a little secret with you – I watch them anyway. Shhh – don’t tell anyone!
So, it is with pleasure that I get to share with you the latest set of coloring pages I’ve drawn up – six scenes from It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! And just to save a little face, the animated special was made before I was born. *wink*
