It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown* airs tonight, Tuesday, April 7th 2009 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. I just thought I’d remind you, I know how you’d kick yourself if you missed it.

This special weaves together several sub-plots into an Iliad proportioned drama which echoes Linus’ beliefs in the Great Pumpkin. Which not unlike Scientology has a strong belief that the Easter Beagle will solve the world's woes.

During this parable, our favorite lesbian couple Peppermint Patty and Marcie struggle with their feminist roles. Whilst Lucy follows her belief that Easter is another reason to receive gifts from the tortured musician, Schroeder. Who, in about 20 years will be playing show tunes on an Atlantis cruise. The pinnacle scene being when a rabid dog pelts small children with eggs, and if that isn’t the true meaning of Easter, I just don’t know what to tell you.

* side effects may include an overwhelming urge to dance with bunnies.
