It's the end of October, and all the kids in the neighborhood are preparing to go out trick-or-treating during Halloween...all the kids, but Linus. Linus is the sole believe of The Great Pumpkin ("It must be tough to be 2nd against Santa", Linus says, "You just don't get as much publicity".), who gives toys to every kid in the world on Halloween night. Linus believes that the Great Pumpkin will come to his pumpkin patch because his is the most pure and innocent. Everyone else had their doubts, but Linus eventually gets everyone to celebrate the true spirit of Halloween -- The Great Pumpkin.
