Peanuts Halloween 1961: The Great Pumpkin arrives (in New Jersey)

Poor Linus can't catch a break.  He spent every day leading up to Halloween in 1961, trying to convince others that the Great Pumpkin was real, only to miss him in the end.  After being ridiculed by Sally, Violet and Lucy, Charlie Brown and Snoopy took turns hanging out with him in the pumpkin patch. When the big night came, Charlie Brown confirmed that the Great Pumpkin did arrive while Linus was asleep - but he "appeared in a very sincere pumpkin patch owned by someone named Freeman in New Jersey".
