It was a very enjoyable, really fast-paced and really touching Peanuts TV special. It had really nice animation, very good voice cast, great characters, really nice artwork, plenty of funny moments, really great music and a really good story. I haven't seen this TV special in a very long time. I really recommend this special to Peanuts fans of all ages.

Ah, love. Amor. The whole Peanuts gang is feeling the love in Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown. Everyone that is, except for everybody's favorite loveable loser, Charlie Brown. As the class prepares for its annual Valentines Day party, Charlie watches his mailbox, and even brings a briefcase to school in hopes that he'll get lots of valentines from the girls in his class. But of course, it's just not "in the cards" for Good Ole' Charlie Brown. Or is it? There's actually a little bit of a surprise ending to this beloved 1975 television special.

Charlie Brown isn't the only one who learns a rough lesson about love in this special. Linus Van pelt falls for his teacher, and buys her a big heart shaped box of chocolates, leading Sally to think that he got it for her. That only leads to bad results for both LInus and Sally. That childhood crush is something that so many children experience. It's one of the things that makes this feature so relateable and in turn, enjoyable almost forty years after its original debut.

The relateability of Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown isn't all that makes it so enjoyable. The animation of this feature is a throwback to an era when animated features were actually animated. They were created by the human hand, rather than via computers. It took time and heart to bring the Peanuts gang to life by hand, and then coordinate the aniamted characters with the then child voice actors. It brings back that sense of nostalgia for audiences of all ages. It reminds us all of our own childhoods; that time when we didn't have anything to worry about.

And now, thanks to the people at Warner Home Video, audiences of all ages can again enjoy this beloved special, along with a pair of other Peanuts originals in It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown and You're in Love, Charlie Brown. Combine those with a little history lesson behind the main feature, and audiences get what is one of the most enjoyable Peanuts features released to dvd/blu-ray yet. It's great for lovers of all ages, and whole families both on Valentines Day and any time of the year.

It's certainly different to see a valentine's special without a real happy ending...but it's also very good as were all the Peanuts Specials.

I found it agonizing watching Charlie Brown chase after that mysterious "red-haired girl" He never found her.
