Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown is an animated television special that originally aired on CBS on January 28, 1975. The show is based on the popular comic strip Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz and was produced by Lee Mendelson and Bill Melendez. The story follows the beloved characters of the Peanuts gang as they prepare for Valentine's Day. Charlie Brown is hoping that this year he will finally receive a Valentine from the Little Red-Haired Girl, whom he has a crush on. Meanwhile, Lucy is looking for love and asks Schroeder to be her Valentine, much to his displeasure. Sally is excited to receive a Valentine from Linus, whom she has a crush on, but is disappointed when she finds out that he has made a card for his teacher instead.

Throughout the special, the characters navigate the ups and downs of love and friendship, culminating in a Valentine's Day dance. The animation is charming and captures the spirit of the Peanuts gang perfectly. The dialogue is witty and poignant, touching on themes of unrequited love, platonic friendship, and the importance of showing appreciation for the people in our lives.

One particularly memorable scene involves Charlie Brown visiting Lucy's psychiatric booth, where she provides him with love advice for a nickel. The scene is classic Peanuts, with Lucy dispensing comically unhelpful advice and Charlie Brown mulling over his romantic woes.

Another notable aspect of the special is the music, composed by Vince Guaraldi. Guaraldi's jazzy score is the perfect accompaniment to the whimsical world of Peanuts, and several of the songs have become holiday classics in their own right. Highlights include "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown", performed by the show's child voice cast, and "Joe Cool", a groovy tune that accompanies Snoopy's antics.

Overall, Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown is a heartwarming and charming addition to the Peanuts canon. It captures the essence of Schulz's beloved characters and provides a gentle reminder that even amidst the turmoil of love and friendship, there is always an opportunity for appreciation and connection.
