It’s enough to flip your gourd.
Um… Linus, isn’t a pumpkin a squash?
A bit touchy there, aren’t we, Linus ?
Last Night? Was that you? I’m so embarrassed.
Did you ever get the feeling Schulz intended Marcie to know exactly what she was saying (“squash” instead of “pumpkin”) and to do so intentionally to harass (or tease) Linus? Same thing with calling Peppermint Patty “Sir” – perhaps it wasn’t dullness on Marcie’s part but was a way of teasing PP.
Pumpkin, squash, gourd, they’re all the same
Hey Linus, why don’t you carve up some pumpkins into some neat Jack-O-Lanterns? Or does that cut into the “Great Pumpkin”?

The Great Pumpkin did not show – it was scooped up by a giant Apple.
I think he feels a little squashed there, Marcie!
Linus, if you cut open the pumpkin and scoop out the pumpkin meat. You can then make a custard and put in a pie-shell. Bake it and you get Great Pumpkin pie.
Marcie “squashed” Linus’s illusion.
Oh, but his hopes were squashed!
In a 1977 Peanuts strip, Marcie called the Great Pumpkin the “Great Grape”.
Oh Great Pumpkin, where are you?
Happy Halloween to my fellow ‘Peanuts’ fans.

Linus is a bit touchy when his imaginary idols stand him up.
I wrote a fanmake of the “Great Pumpkin” special inorporating newer “Peanuts” characters into the story, including Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Franklin, Rerun and Woodstock…https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5466442/1/It-s-the-Great-Pumpkin-Charlie-Brown-New-Version
How about some Great Pumpkin Spice?
And that’s sarcasm, Linus.

Years ago, I saw a cartoon of the Great Pumpkin, drunk, trying to pickup a girl at a bar and saying, “You know, I REALLY need to meet this kid in a pumpkin patch, but I’m getting more from you now!”
Ever since the watermelon
