Storyline

It's Valentine's Day again and Charlie Brown dreams the seemingly hopeless dream to receiving a valentine from anyone. All the while, the rest of the gang have their own trials whether it be Linus' struggle to get the biggest card he can for his beloved teacher, or Lucy trying to get some token from Schroeder while Snoopy and Woodstock are having fun spearing valentines on each other's nose.

Depressing Valentine's Day Special
18 February 2009 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

I saw "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown" for the first time in years and I thought it was a very depressing Valentine's Day special. Poor Charlie Brown, he never gets any valentines and he sits by the mailbox hoping to finally receive one but unfortunately it remains empty. Linus buys a heart-shaped box of candy for his teacher, Miss Othmar, but she leaves with her boyfriend and never gets the box although Sally, who has a huge crush on Linus thinks the candy is hers. Then there's Lucy, who tries to get Schroeder to notice her, a repetitive theme throughout the comic strip but ends up destroying his piano in frustration.

Even worse, in school where Charlie Brown's class has a valentine box and all the valentines are distributed with our hero not receiving a single one. How sad and thoughtless until the next day, Violet and some of the girls, finally give him a valentine.

if you enjoy Valentine's Day with someone special, watch a romantic movie instead. This cartoon will give you a broken heart.
