I love this time of year as we get ready to celebrate Halloween and if you have kids make sure you have to the TV on tonight as ABC gets ready to make Halloween official with the airing of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, tonight starting at 8 p.m., according to ABC 7.

As a kid, I always remember loving to watch It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown on TV, one because it meant that we were really close to trick or treating and free candy, and two, most importantly, I got to stay up past my bed time to watch.

Kids today are not so lucky. LOL. If you don't want the kids staying up past their bedtime make sure you set your DVR for 8 p.m. tonight to record the Halloween classic.

ABC will air another Halloween special at 8:30 p.m. tonight as well. The Toy Story Halloween special called Toy Story OF TERROR! starts right after Charlie Brown.

If you do miss it, ABC will re air the special on Sunday night October 29th at 8 p.m.
