This Peanuts DVD includes three love-related specials. The title feature, "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown" is the first of the three cartoons on the disc. This special aired on television in 1975 and was nominated for an Emmy. Mostly based around Schultz's original strips, the main story follows Charlie Brown as he survives Valentine's Day. The cartoon begins with Snoopy dancing around as cupid and trying to hit Charlie Brown and missing every single time. Charlie Brown faithfully checks his mailbox hoping to get a Valentine and brings a briefcase to school to carry home all the cards he plans to receive. Meanwhile, Linus has a crush on his teacher and buys her an expensive box of chocolates as a gift that Sally believes is for her.

The second special on the disc is "You're in Love, Charlie Brown". The school year is quickly approaching the end of the year and Charlie Brown finds himself head over heals in love with the cute little red-haired girl in his class. He fights to overcome his shyness to speak with the girl before the school year ends because after that, he won't be able to see her until the fall.

The third and final special on the DVD is "It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown". This time it's October and the school is gearing up for the big homecoming game and dance. During the homecoming parade, Charlie Brown is informed by Linus that he's going to be the queen's escort at the dance and he will have to kiss her on the cheek. The Queen is none other than the little red-haired girl and Charlie Brown finds himself more nervous than he's ever been before. Of course, before the homecoming dance there's the big homecoming football game.

Peanuts once again hits DVD with this collection of three animated specials focusing on love.
The disc starts off with "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown," which first aired in 1975. Valentine's Day is coming, and the gang's getting excited. Charlie Brown is hoping for lots of Valentines this year. Linus has a crush on his teacher and buys her a box of chocolate which Sally thinks is for her. And in the middle of all this, Snoopy puts on a special Pawpet Theater show involving love. Frankly, I found this story to be a little depressing, even for Peanuts and was surprised that The Little Red Haired Girl didn't even get mentioned.
Next comes 1967's "You're in Love, Charlie Brown." It's two days before school lets out for the summer, and Charlie Brown is trying to work up the nerve to talk to The Little Red Haired Girl. This is affecting every aspect of his life, leading to some embarrassing moments and potentially the worst last school day ever. This short was filled with the humor and warmth I usually associate with Peanuts.
The final selection is "It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown," from 1977. Charlie Brown is shocked to learn that part of his duties during Homecoming is to dance with the Homecoming Queen after kissing her. And the queen is none other then The Little Red Haired Girl, whose name we learn is Heather. But first, he must do his job as punter in the homecoming football game. This would be easy, except guess who's holding the football! This sweet story brought a smile to my face with the ending.
As with other Peanuts DVD's the three programs are the heart and sole of the disc. There is a computer game for another movie, and that's all. Still, the programs are ultimately what I bought it for. The picture is clear and sharp.

This DVD release has three classic Peanuts cartoon specials on it. All three were Valentine's Day related episodes. The episodes are "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown" (1975), "You're in Love, Charlie Brown" (1967), and "It's Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown" (1977). While the episodes vary in overall quality, it is always nice to have a collection of the Peanuts shorts.
First on the disc is "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown", and this may be the one that most people are familiar with. It is almost Valentine's Day and everyone is looking forward to the day. Charlie Brown brings a briefcase with him to school because he believes this is the day that he will get mounds of valentine's cards. Linus buys a big box of chocolates for his teacher and hopes to give it to her. Sally is waiting for a valentine from Linus. Lucy wants one from Schroeder (who would presumably want one from Beethoven). The theme of Peanuts, unfortunately is unrequited love, so nobody gets what they want. Charlie Brown is so desperate for a valentine that he is willing to take a used card with the original name scratched out because Patty felt bad when nobody gave poor Charlie Brown a valentine. This is the best episode of the disc.
The second episode is "You're in Love, Charlie Brown". This episode takes Charlie Brown on the last two days of the school year and he is trying to work up his nerve to talk to the Little Red Haired Girl. He talks to Linus and complains but he never can quite work up his nerve. Once again, we have the sadness of Charlie Brown not achieving his dreams, but the episode ends on a high note. When Charlie Brown finally decides that he is going to talk to the Little Red Haired Girl, he misses the opportunity in the press of students as school ends.
