6. It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Let’s be perfectly frank on this point. Childhood is simply not childhood until you have watched It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Linus’ belief in the Great Pumpkin, who never comes, is a wonderful jumping off point for any level of discussion. The earlier, as well as the more often, you can watch this show growing up, the better. Not only will you get great comedy (“I got a rock…”), you will also get one of the most mature discussions of faith ever put on television. Either way, almost anything would be worse to watch on Halloween.
