It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Question: There is something I don't understand about Linus in this special. He is flattered when Sally flirts with him by saying he says the cutest things, and that he's so intelligent. Linus usually rejects Sally's feelings whenever she flirts him. Why should this be any different?

Answer: From what I've seen, usually Sally is often annoying Linus with her flirting when he has nothing in common with her, or he's just trying to do something to help her and she tries to make it into more. Here, Sally's comments make Linus think she believes in the Great Pumpkin too, or is at least interested in hearing more about it. It's more that he's excited she likes the same thing as he does. Later in the pumpkin patch, he's happy she's there because he wants to share the experience with someone, not because he has any feeling towards Sally.

Except he's never basked in her flattery in the past.

Continuity mistake: When Charlie Brown holds the door for Snoopy before the gang leaves to trick or treat, his costume doesn't have all the extra holes in it like it does in the scenes before and after.

Trivia: Just after Linus seals his letter to the Great Pumpkin in an envelope, he walks past Lucy who is sitting on the floor watching TV. In her hands, Lucy is holding an issue of TV Guide Magazine. On the cover? Lucy, sitting on the floor in the same position, wearing the same blue dress. (00:07:00)
