Tonight in Prime Time
‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’
The annual airing of the classic 1966 animated special seems like the perfect capper to an evening of trick-or-treating. Lucy will pull the football away at the last minute, Snoopy will fight the Red Baron and Linus will spend the night in the pumpkin patch. Some things never change. 8 p.m. Thursday on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
