“There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.” – Linus van Pelt

In the world of Peanuts, no one is a greater tease than the Great Pumpkin. Every year on Halloween night, Linus waits for the Great Pumpkin to rise from the pumpkin patch and hand out toys to the best behaved children. And every year Linus gets stood up like a cheap date. But Linus still stubbornly believes in the Great Pumpkin and does everything he can to ensure the Great Pumpkin’s arrival.

So what would happen when the Great Pumpkin finally makes an appearance? Would Linus triumphantly wave his security blanket in the air and tell his friends “I told you so!”?  Thanks to Francesco Marciuliano, the author of the webcomic Medium Large, we have our answer.
