It’s the great pumpkin, Charlie BrownThe picture release was a historic moment for Peanuts fans, as it was the first time Lucy’s signature soccer ball had been moved on Charlie Brown – pulling the soccer ball away at the last second to send him in the air -. As shown in the book It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: The Making of a Classic TV, Scholes revealed that the titular Great Pumpkin was making fun of Santa Claus.
“First of all, we forget that there are hundreds of thousands of poor children in this world lucky if they get a gift or two at Christmas time. And here they have heard a lot about Santa Claus and all the gifts that he gives. It must be very difficult for a lot of families. … a lot of children, “Schulze said, he says CBR. “And second, when the child finally discovers that there is no Santa Claus, he must wonder how many other things he has been told are not true.”
The cartoonist admitted he might be “far” from Santa Claus, “but the Great Pumpkin is really a kind of mockery of Santa Claus, because Linus of course writes for gifts and expects to receive them. And when he’s not the Great Pumpkin Linus has been broken. You can’t always get what you wished for but you can still survive … and you can still keep trying. Linus never gives up, just like Charlie Brown. “
