In the Peanuts special "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown," which character tries to convince everyone that the easter beagle will take care of everything?

And the answer: Linus.

"It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown" was the 12th animated primetime TV special based on the comic strip Peanuts by Charles M Schulz. It debuted in April 1974 and received an Emmy nomination in 1975 for Outstanding Children's Special.

Like the Great Pumpkin, lovable Linus has lots of peculiar beliefs. The Easter Beagle made his first appearance in a 1968 comic strip, where Snoopy imitates the Easter Bunny by dancing around with a basket of eggs. In the TV special "It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown," Linus tries to convince everybody that the Easter Beagle will come, much as he tries to convince everyone that a Halloween gift-giver is coming in "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." And sure enough, come he does! However, when it's poor Charlie Brown's turn, no eggs are left.

Linus is a steadfast feature of the Peanuts crew since 1952. Always equipped with his blue blanket, Linus is the middle child of the van Pelt family, alongside Lucy and Rerun. As Charlie Brown's best friend, the pair is often seen supporting each other, talking about their problems, and even arguing with each other (usually about the "Great Pumpkin").

Fun fact!

It is said that Linus’ failure to be elected class president is due to his insistence on speaking about his belief in the Great Pumpkin. But I say: stay true to you, Linus.
