Peanuts
It’s coming to be that time of year. The only time of year where it is acceptable for kids to accept candy from strangers. For the more mature crowd, it is a time for costume parties and fun. If you happen to be into Peanuts comics, and really who isn’t, then there’s an Android app to help get you into the spirit.

The app is called It’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. It has quite a bit of content for a game that will only really be popular one month out of the year. To start, there are over a million costume combinations. So right out of the gate you’re going to be busy personalizing your avatar. Some of the other fun stuff you can do includes:

  • Go trick-or-treating with Charlie Brown and the gang
  • Carve your own pumpkin, bob for apples and play Schroeder’s piano
  • Go trick-or-treating with Charlie Brown and the gang
  • Carve your own pumpkin, bob for apples and play Schroeder’s piano
  • Touch and drag objects to make them “spring” to life or tilt to watch them slide and move
  • Objects magically pop out of the page to delight little and big kids

Does the game stay true to the Peanuts classic?

You bet it does. There is a lot of content for fans of the Peanuts gang. It has the original dialogue from the classic 1966 animated classic. The narration is done by Peter Robbins, the original voice actor for Charlie Brown. If that isn’t enough, the soundtrack and sound effects come straight from the Peanuts classic.

Peanuts in general has been delighting fans for over 60 years. The Peanuts Halloween special still clocks in at around half a century. It’s definitely a fun way to get in touch with the classics and even introduce them to the kids. Has anyone given a try yet? If not, and you want to, you can download the app from the Google Play Store.
