"I got a rock!
Ha ha ha! Poor Charlie Brown. House after house after -- huh? Network broadcasters have edited the Halloween special It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown -- so that Charlie Brown only gets one rock.

Other TV edits detected by fans...

  • Snoopy dancing to Schroeder's piano music.
  • The opening scene where Lucy holds the football and Charlie Brown runs up to kick it. (Now we'll never know if he kicked it...)
Of course, the special still ends with Charlie Brown complaining that "all I got was a bag full of rocks."

When the special originally aired, "children all over the country sent candy to Charlie Brown out of sympathy."
