People of a certain age will remember ‘It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.’ The animated television special debuted in 1966,1 way back when there were only a few channels and you had to get out of your seat to change them from one to another! Here are a few fun facts about the show:

• It was the first time an animated Lucy snatched the football from Charlie Brown (she had previously done so in the comic strip). She convinced him to try the kick by saying, “This time you can trust me. See? I have a signed document testifying that I promise not to pull it away.”1, 2

• Linus confused Halloween and Christmas. He explains, “Tonight the Great Pumpkin will rise out of the pumpkin patch. He flies through the air and brings toys to all the children of the world.”2

• People sent bags of candy for Charlie Brown to Charles Schultz’s office after Charlie’s trick-or-treating garnered an unfavorable result. “I don't understand it. I went trick-or-treating and all I got was a bag full of rocks.”1, 2

While some of the show’s characters find Halloween fulfilling, others are sadly disappointed. If you think about it, there are some parallels to retirement. Some people will have the financial resources to enjoy retirement, while others won’t. If you would like to talk about your retirement, give us a call. We’re here to help.

We wish you a Happy Halloween full of treats and good old-fashioned fun!
