Here's another triple shot of Peanuts on DVD. There are three complete Peanuts specials on this disc and the quality of the three varies greatly. First up is "A Charlie Brown Valentine" from 2002. This is not to be confused with the more entertaining "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown" from 1975 which is on another DVD collection. "A Charlie Brown Valentine" was produced after Charles Schulz' death and like most of the latter day Peanuts specials, it's not much to get excited about. It's not really bad, like "The Pied Piper" or "It Was My Best Birthday" though. There's really no story line other than that it's near Valentines day. All of the little "skits" contained in this half hour cartoon are lifted straight from the Peanuts comic strip, a la "The Charlie Brown & Snoopy Show" TV series from the 1980s. Since a lot of the strips that it represents were good, it doesn't fall flat on it's face, but it's still pretty lame compared to the shows from the glory days. I'd give it 2 stars.
The second offering on this disc is much, much better, as it was produced during the first decade of Peanuts specials. While it's no "Charlie Brown Christmas" or "Great Pumpkin", this 1973 cartoon, "There's No Time For Love, Charlie Brown" is a keeper. It has a lot of the "classic" Peanuts bits like Marcie calling Peppermint Patty "sir" and a Snoopy segment that includes his "Joe Cool" theme song. Like "A Charlie Brown Valentine" the first several minutes of "No Time For Love" is a lot of gags lifted from the comic pages, this time dealing with school. "No Time For Love" was produced shortly before "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" and is of the same quality. I'd give it a strong 4 stars.
Up next is a 1981 effort called "Someday You'll Find Her, Charlie Brown". It's an interesting story but isn't executed very well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not a classic! February 19, 2004
By A Customer
I mistakenly bought this at the store where they didn't have "Be My Valentine C. B.", so I wasn't aware that this was different. I thought I'd replace our old video, but, as it turns out, the old classic with the briefcases, the heart-shaped shaving lotion, Snoopy clipping a music box Valentine, and Linus hurling chocolates into Snoopy's mouth is not on this DVD. With 2 little ones with me, I did not take the time to read the back. This is for an older crowd. My preschoolers still beg for the old video, while my school kids DO enjoy this DVD (but no contest, the other one wins). I would regret my mistake except that it has 3 "shows" on it and supplements the original quite nicely. Just know that the original is not on here and you'll probably be more pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love is in the air- especially toward this DVD. January 9, 2004
Love is in the air: Lucy loves Schroeder, Peppermint Patty and Marcie love Charlie Brown, Sally loves Linus, and, of course, Charlie Brown loves the little Red Haired Girl. This delightful love triangle (or would that be quadrilateral?) features the music of David Benoit, which is almost as good as original composer Vince Guaraldi. The only things that could make this show better are the voices (especially Sally's- any higher and she'd break your TV screen) and the design of the Little Red Haired Girl. Since Schulz died before this was made, I doubt he designed the little Red Haired Girl, so they should have stayed consistent with her design in "It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown" and "Happy New Year, Charlie Brown." Schulz didn't design that one, but I think that is a cuter design.
"There's no time for love, Charlie Brown" features original Guaraldi music and many brief sketches that make me laugh. I enjoy the grocery store version of "Joe Cool" and the silliness of the fact that the kids are in the supermarket but think it's an art museum. But the opening title sure is retro!
"Someday you'll find her, Charlie Brown" is terrible! I don't think it's even written by Schulz, the music is bad because it isn't by Benoit or Guaraldi, and they show adults! In it Linus meets the girl of Charlie Brown's dreams: compare it to "Happy New Year, Charlie Brown." Linus is a girlthief!
But "A Charlie Brown Valentine" is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST Peanut's Valentine's Special September 3, 2009
I actually prefer this one over the 'Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown' Peanuts special,
it's funnier & has a better story line - in my opinion.

Although, no matter which one you prefer,
you can never go wrong with Peanuts.
