It's the Great Pumpkin Rap, Charlie Brown!

It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! So, pump it!

Given my strong feelings about the fall holidays, um, representing, I feel a bit bummed that I missed the chance to watch It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown with my daughter tonight.  I didn’t know it was on!  But I suppose I should have, since ABC was pimping the show with a fierce Great Pumpkin rap, performed by the hottest new MC, “Charlie B.”  I’m probably the worst person in the world to be saying this, since I put the ill in my own illustrious rap career, but does everything need to be rapped nowadays?  I mean, really.  (Or do I mean forshizzle?)

There’s no worse way to try to make hip a retro 60’s cartoon like this than to shill it to an 80’s beat.  What’s next?  Will we see the Grinch rapping this Christmas?  Will the Grinch’s long-suffering dog beatbox while little Cindy Lou Who spits Yahoo Doray as the Whos down in Whoville breakdance?  (Is that what that song is even called?)  So many questions, but it’s late, and I have to get up early tomorrow to yell at everyone who’s going out to buy their Christmas presents two months in advance, so, I’m out, yo.  Peace, dawg.  (I’m lookin’ at you, Snoopy.)
