"Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown is one of the best of the TV specials, featuring a strong storyline laced with lots of ironic comedy based around unfulfilled expectations. ~~ Ricadus
"A worthy addition to the Peanuts pantheon of prime-time holiday specials. As with all of the best Peanuts videos, this one works on (at least) two levels: Plenty of kid-friendly humor and hijinx, as well as wry dialogue for the more sophisticated viewers." ~~ D. Anderson

How horrible is it that Charlie Brown doesn't receive a single, solitary Valentine's day Card?
I have to admit that I had not seen Be Mine, Charlie Brown since I was a child, if I did see it then. I watched it today and I was horrified to discover that Charlie Brown didn't receive a single solitary Valentine's Day card. I was incredulous. My lower jaw hung slack. How could this happen to anyone? How could this be the central part of a children's cartoon?
What do you think about Charlie Brown not receiving a single solitary Valentine's Day card?
