Heartwarming / It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
- Snoopy helping Charlie Brown rake the leaves, and their shared irritation with Linus when he ruins the leaf pile.
- Charlie Brown narrating Snoopy's World War I Flying Ace narration, showing that he does show interest in his dog's fantasies occasionally.
- Lucy getting up and going to retrieve Linus from the pumpkin patch.
- Somewhat of a Real Life example: After the special first aired, children from all over the world sent bags of candy to Charlie Brown out of sympathy.
