When I was growing up, you used to show It’s The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown every year. Why have you stopped? Why has it been four years since you last aired one of the best Charlie Brown holiday specials? You still show It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and I watch every October but It’s The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown is just as important. Easter Beagle concludes the story that starts in The Great Pumpkin. In Easter Beagle, Linus is finally proven right. Even if he missed the Great Pumpkin, he still gets to meet the Easter Beagle and he even gets an egg. The Easter Beagle has eggs for almost everyone.
Next year will be the 40th anniversary of the first airing of It’s The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown. Please don’t let that year pass without giving everyone a chance to laugh at Peppermint Patty trying to teach Marcy how to paint eggs or a chance to watch scenes like this one that I love:
Next year, ABC, I hope you will air It’s The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown and allow audiences new and old to enjoy it. As Lucy put it, “It’s the gift getting season,” and this would be a perfect gift to us.
