Sleepy Hollow

by Deborah Harter Williams



Sleepy Hollow (FOX, Monday 9 p.m.) is a fantasy mystery drama based on the 1820 short story by Washington Irving. If your remembrance of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow involves a pumpkin and an awkward, scrawny Ichabod Crane, be prepared for a whole new way of looking at things.

Pumpkins frequently appear in literature, too, and here are just a few instances. There is of course, Cinderella and her grand pumpkin carriage. For many years Charles M. Schulz delighted us with his Peanuts cartoon strip and Linus’ belief in the Great Pumpkin. There is the pumpkin throwing Headless Horseman in Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hallow. And most recently pumpkins have appeared in the Harry Potter books and movies where the students of Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry partake of a favorite beverage, pumpkin juice.
