Halloween Triggers Charlie Brown and Peanuts Outburst on Twitter

With Halloween around the corner, costumes, candy, and Charlie Brown are at the top of people’s minds.

Waiting out the Great Pumpkin with the Peanuts gang has been a favorite holiday treat since the animated special first aired back in 1966. But in a modern twist, people are taking to Twitter with #RejectedPeanutsSpecials to bring Charlie Brown into 2011.

Top tweets include “It’s called depression, Charlie Brown”, “It’s Not the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. That’s Snookie,” and in a nod to Harold Camping’s off-base Apocalypse predictions, “It’s the Rapture, Charlie Brown! (postponed twice will now air 12/21/12).”
