Marcie, You've Made Egg Soup

It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown
CBS (1974)
My favorite springtime television special is celebrating its 50th holiday season this weekend.  It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown premiered on CBS on April 9th, 1974, which was five days before Easter that year.  It aired for free on broadcast television every year from 1974 until 2021 when the tradition came to an end.  This is because Apple obtained rights to the Peanuts cartoon library for its Apple TV+ streaming service.  This is the perfect example of why it's best to own a physical copy of your favorite shows, movies, and music.

Happy Easter, everybody, and if you plan on dying some eggs today, I wouldn't recommend taking any tips from Marcie.
