It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown

Nothing says holiday like a Charlie Brown special, and I managed to catch the Easter one over...uh...Easter.
Linus claims that nobody need bother purchasing or painting eggs as The Easter Beagle will do all that (a situation very reminiscent of It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown). Naturally everybody ignores him and goes about their Easter business. Lucy plants some eggs she has made and notes their location so she can win the egg hunt, Snoopy buys Woodstock a birdhouse (which he then decorates with some funky 70's funiture, before Snoopy trashes the place with his nose) and Peppermint Pattie and Marcie attempt to make some Easter eggs (they fail miserably as Marcie cannot boil an egg. Fry, grill, roast, waffle and even turn into a soup, but boil, no). Eventually Snoopy pinches Lucy's eggs and distributes them to all, thus making Linus' loony prophecy come true. All in all, a pleasantly whimsical way to while away half an hour over the Easter break.
