It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown is the 12th prime-time animated TV special based on the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schultz. In the United States, it debuted on CBS on April 9, 1974 at 8 PM. Thereafter, CBS aired it each Easter season from 1974 to 2000. ABC repeated the special in some years during the period 2001 through 2014.


Marcie: What do we do with the Easter eggs now that we have them, sir?
Peppermint Patty: We eat them. We put a little salt on them, and we eat them.
Marcie: [eats her egg, still with the shell on, and gulps down] Tastes terrible, sir!

Peppermint Patty: Now look, kid: these eggs are *not* to be fried. Nor are they to be roasted, toasted, or waffled.
Marcie: Yes, sir.
Peppermint Patty: These eggs got to be boiled. You boil them, then I'll show you how to paint them.
Marcie: Yes, sir. I'll boil them, sir. Then you'll paint them.
Peppermint Patty: (whistles) When the water comes to a boil, let me know. Put the eggs in now.
Marcie: Okay, sir. In they go. (cracks eggs into a pot) Okay, sir. All the eggs are in.
Peppermint: Good, Marcie. Let 'em boil a good long time and then I'll show you how to paint 'em.
The water boils
Marcie: They look done, sir. Wanna look at 'em?
Peppermint Patty: Okay, Marcie, let me look. That's funny. (sniffs) It smells like soup. (looks at the eggs that boil) Oh! (turns red with anger) MARCIE! You made egg soup!? (Marcie jumps back in fear) AAUGH!!

Sally Brown: It's Easter, and they already have the Christmas decorations up.
Charlie Brown: Good grief.
Linus: I can't believe it.
Lucy: I told you. It's the *gift* getting season.

Sally Brown: See? Linus was right. There *is* an Easter Beagle.
Lucy van Pelt: Some Easter Beagle! He gave me my own egg!

Linus van Pelt: You'll see. The Easter Beagle won't let us down.
Sally Brown: I know he won't, but how about you?

Linus van Pelt: Every Easter the Easter Beagle comes dancing along with his basket full of eggs, which he hands out to all the good little children.
Sally Brown: That sounds faintly familiar. I remember sitting out in a stupid pumpkin patch all night waiting for The Great Pumpkin to come. And you know something ? He never came! That was the worst night of my life.
Linus van Pelt: But this is different. That was Halloween. This is Easter.

Charlie Brown: [seeing Sally and Snoopy laugh as they try on hats] Okay, you two, let's get on with it. It's shoes you need, not hats.

Lucy van Pelt: [to Charlie Brown and Sally Brown] We're on our way to the store. We got to get ready for Easter. You know, we need Easter baskets, eggs, candy, the works. Want to join us?
Linus van Pelt: I told you it's a waste of time. The Easter Beagle does all that.
Lucy van Pelt: Ooh, Linus, you drive me crazy!
Sally Brown: [baffled] Easter Beagle?
Linus van Pelt: Sure, Sally, we don't need to go to all this trouble. On Easter Sunday, the Easter Beagle passes colored eggs to all the good little kids.
Sally Brown: The Easter Beagle? Are you *sure*, Linus?
Linus van Pelt: Of course.
Charlie Brown: Come on, Sally, I thought you wanted to get some new shoes.

Sally Brown: It's almost Easter, and I have nothing to wear. Look at these shoes! How can I celebrate Easter properly in these shoes?
