It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Okay, so this may technically be a show and not a movie, and maybe you can’t actually stream it, but if you think we’re going to put out a list of Halloween content and not include Charlie Brown, you’re outta your mind. We just couldn’t call this list complete without it. So, you have to actually catch it on your local ABC station or buy it as it isn’t available for streaming ANYWHERE. I, for one, am in favor of buying the DVD. You can get the 50th deluxe edition of it here, or buy a special set that includes all 3 Charlie Brown holiday movies here. The special set includes Halloween, Thanksgiving, and my personal favorite Christmas!
