Today is the 40th anniversary of the It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown! Halloween special!
Today is also the 67th Birthday of the wonderful John Cleese. According to his bio in IMDB he "refused the British Honour of the C.B.E. (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in 1996." Which would explain why it's not Sir John Cleese. That's Ok, he'll always be The Black Knight, head of the Ministry of Silly Walks to me.
Happy Anniversary Charlie Brown and Happy Birthday John!
