It’s the Great Pumpkin!

Remember watching this in October when you were a kid?  It still never seems like Halloween until we do.  I wonder if kids still watch this, or if it’s just nostalgic parents (or parents-to-be, in our case).  I remember watching this show with my folks and thinking, “How come I’ve never heard of the Great Pumpkin? Who is this guy, anyway? Is this guy affiliated with Santa Claus, or is this more of an Easter Bunny kind of thing?” I would ponder these things, with my patented squinty one-eyebrow raised look of a suspiciously contemplative individual for oh, probably a minute and a half.  And then, in the excitement of a be-costumed Halloween, I would forget….until the next year.
