Reasons NOT to revisit childhood-It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

What a horrible show!

Depressing. Miserable. I get that the kids treat Charlie Brown like shit, but what’s up with the ADULTS giving him rocks? And of course Linus ends up miserable, alone and disillusioned by the Great Pumpkin, and with Sally hating him. WTF? I’m sure I watched this thing a ton of times when I was growing up, but now it just seems like the worst thing ever.

I’m not crazy about the inherent validation of the Jesus story in “Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown,” but at least there’s some love and affection for all the characters by the end of the story, even if it’s temporary.

This is just devastating. BLECH!

Even the Vince Guaraldi score doesn't help.
