The one show that you may not remember is The Young Astronauts. The reason? This animated series about a family in space was withdrawn following the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster on January 28. A Star Comics comic book series from Marvel Comics was planned to tie into the cartoon, but was also withdrawn following the disaster.No Comments
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is a 1966 American prime time animated television special based on the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz.
A Halloween special, it was the third Peanuts special (and second holiday-themed special, following A Charlie Brown Christmas) to be produced and animated by Bill Melendez. Its initial broadcast took place on October 27, 1966, on CBS, preempting My Three Sons. CBS re-aired the special annually through 2000, with ABC picking up the rights beginning in 2001, where it now airs annually at Halloween, followed by You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown, as if to emphasize the proximity between Halloween and Election Day; furthermore, the latter includes mention of the “Great Pumpkin” as well.
