Our take: According to a parenting blog, the classic Halloween show "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" needs to be retired. The blogger talks about how times have changed since the show first aired and says today's kids should not be exposed to the show's "continuous teasing and bullying." Is it time to say goodbye to one of America's classic Halloween shows?

Times have changed since our parents were kids. Our parents flew on planes with smoking sections, car seats didnít exist, and "Itís The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" was a slice of Americana.

Now smoking is banned most everywhere, parents need to buy three different car seats over the course of a childís life, and Charlie Brown is no longer appropriate.

My boys are 5 and 2. Young kids.
