Charlie Brown ‘Great Pumpkin’ Special A Cause For Concern Among Parents?

Once again, really? Are we really having this discussion? It may be a holiday classic, but some parents are saying “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” should be retired from the airwaves.

Parents are concerned that the show sends the wrong message to children because of its “continuous teasing and bullying.”

“The show is riddled with the kids calling each other stupid, dumb, and blockheads,” Bishop wrote. “Charlie Brown is supposed to be the hero. Instead, he is kicked and demeaned at every turn, even by the adults giving out candy.”

The show’s antiquated acceptance of schoolyard teasing and how the bullying children are never held to account.

Charlie Brown is always given a rock while trick-or-treating shows that even the adults are joining in on the bullying.

Some parents say that it’s better that children first encounter bullying through a TV show than on the playground. What do you think? Retire the show or this is crazy, its a classic. Stop messing with my childhood?
