With no kids of my own, I really have no idea if It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is appreciated by modern audiences or if it’s just my generation that gathers around the TV each Halloween season to watch it one more time. If your kids (or the kid inside you) complain there’s nothing “cool” to watch, how about checking out Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space?
NBC is airing Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space on October 28th, and according to Collider, the special features the voices of Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogen, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett, Kiefer Sutherland, and Rainn Wilson, all of whom appeared in the original film.
A montage of five clips from the show follows the synopsis:
Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space is produced by Latifa Ouaou and directed by Peter Ramsey from a screenplay by Adam F. Goldberg. The story continues after the events of Monsters vs. Aliens, as Susan Murphy (Witherspoon) and the Monsters now work with the U.S. government as special operatives. When an alien presence is detected in Susan’s hometown of Modesto, California — right before Halloween — the team is dispatched to investigate. Everything appears normal, right down to the jack-o-lanterns peering out from every doorstep and windowsill. But when Halloween arrives, those innocent-looking carved pumpkins are revealed for what they really are — mutant aliens. The altered pumpkins then start to implement their fiendish plan to take over Earth. The Monsters are there to combat the mutant gourds and try to smash their wicked scheme.
