LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- The Parents Television Council is angry after the Charlie Brown Halloween special transitioned to a very steamy sex scene at the start of the show Scandal.

The show went from It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown to the beginning of the show Scandal which started with a scandalous scene involving the main character Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and her two love interests.

"Shame on ABC for putting a peep show next to a playground," said PTC president Tim Winter. "In less than 26 seconds, we were taken from the Peanuts pumpkin patch to a steamy Scandal sex scene. Twenty-six seconds, boom."

The tweets started flooding in from many people who were amused by the jump but some who were angry their children were exposed to non-friendly television for their kids.

The PTC has demanded that ABC apologize for the transition and avoid such incidents in the future.
