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.

Quotes

Charlie Brown: I guess I let Schroeder down, but it was my first valentine, you know.
Linus van Pelt: I didn't do too well, either. Miss Othmar went off with her boyfriend. She never even knew I had a Valentine's gift for her.
Charlie Brown: Well, maybe it wasn't a total flop for me. At least they *were* a showing a little thought for me, even if it was a used valentine. At least they care a *little* bit about me. Hey, maybe this is the start of a trend. Maybe this is a whole new trend for old Charlie Brown. Maybe this is the start of ...

Many Broken Hearts
12 February 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

No one seems to have a good time or find love in this Peanuts TV special. Charlie gets no Valentine cards, Linus misses out on his opportunity to give chocolates to his favorite teacher and Shroeder vows to never marry Lucy, much to her anger.

It's kinda downbeat for a Valentine's TV special. So much so that kids from all over America sent Charlie Brown a Valentine's card out of sympathy. Which is quite sweet when you think about it. As long as they were all girls.

Still, it's another funny and timeless TV special that you should definitely make the effort of watching if it comes on this Feb 14th. Though it might depress you if you yourself do not receive any Valentine's card.
