Today we'll talk about The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!
If Charlie Brown had seen this monster pumpkin he would have sworn it was the Great Pumpkin! This Jack-O-Lantern is the world’s largest carved pumpkin. Guinness recorded the huge pumpkin for its Book of World records in October of 2005 and there haven’t been any larger ones carved since.
This monster weighed in at 1,469 pounds! It was Scott Cully who carved the orange beastie in Northern Cambria, Pennsylvania, USA. It took him several days and the results were amazing.
