Peanuts Halloween 1964: Never mix politics and the Great Pumpkin

Even though it's not technically a "Halloween" Peanuts comic, this strip from October 4, 1964, made it into "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" almost unchanged.

The Great Pumpkin returned to Peanuts on October 21, 1964, when Linus mentioned him during his campaign speech to be class President.  Poor Charlie Brown was to be his Vice President...

By October 27, the election fiasco had blown over, and Linus was back to the business of waiting for the Great Pumpkin.

Linus, although disappointed when the Great Pumpkin didn't show up, never gave up hope of seeing him in 1965...
