If you haven’t already marked your calendars and set your DVRs for Thursday night’s airing of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” ABC has come up with a, um, "hip" way to remind you. As in, hip-hop.
In a “Pumpkin Rap” performed by “Charlie B and the Peanuts Posse,” a voice that we can only assume belongs to Charlie Brown's rhyming alter-ego tells viewers, “raking leaves and rolling on a pumpkin/trick or treat, then the party gets thumpin.’”
No, we’re not making this up.
Charlie B. continues the rap, “But where is Linus/this party is posh/he’s waiting in the field/for a mythical squash.”
It has been 44 years since the animated short first aired, so we suppose ABC had to find some way to keep it fresh...although we're not sure if this was the way to do it.
