Few things scream HALLOWEEN more than the Peanuts TV special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which is as synonymous with the holiday as A Christmas Story is to Christmas. For countless people around the world, Halloween just isn’t Halloween until they’ve revisited the 1966 animated classic, and if you’re one of those people, you are going to LOVE Funko’s latest offering.
Just in time for Halloween, Funko’s brand spankin’ new wave of Peanuts vinyl toys pay tribute to It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, bringing the beloved characters – in their Halloween costumes – into your POP! collection for the very first time. The set includes four toys: Snoopy as the Flying Ace, Charlie Brown in his mask, Lucy Van Pelt as a witch, and perhaps coolest of all, “Ghost Charlie Brown.”
From what we gather, the toys are now available exclusively at Walgreens, and will likely hit other retailers in the near future. They’ve already been spotted out there in the wild, so if you have a Walgreens near you, be sure to stop in and poke around!
In the animated special, the gang celebrates Halloween while Linus waits for the Great Pumpkin.
