|“||"You should let the Great Pumpkin eat you."||„|
|~ The Great Pumpkin pretends to be Lucy van Pelt.|
He was voiced by Abraham Benrubi who has also voiced other characters in the series, including CD and the show's version of Fidel Castro.
The Great Pumpkin has a pumpkin for a head, with his body made of vines in this version.
The Great Pumpkin is summoned by Linus Van Pelt, when Linus finally lost his patience and grew tired of waiting for him to give him presents. He brings him to life by using a chicken and a satanic ritual. However, the Pumpkin brutally murders him instead. He is buried the next day, and his (no longer still-living) lover, Sally Brown with him. Soon, the monster began to slaughter the other children including Lucy Van Pelt (and Snoopy) when she was in the middle of her psychiatrist meeting with Charlie Brown. The demon then tries to eat Charlie Brown himself, but the latter is saved by the Kite-Eating Tree, who devours and kills the Great Pumpkin. Charlie then wishes his slain friends eternal rest, but they are then shown dancing in Hell with Satan. This short was noteworthy, because it was rather dark and disturbing, and the Great Pumpkin was actually a very menacing villain who tried to kill the main characters, even if they were parodies.
