Whether you're actually excited for Valentine's Day or are already loathing the impending holiday, you can at least celebrate the fact that V-Day brings along another Charlie Brown special. So when does Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown air? You'll be able to watch and still go out on Valentine's Day, if that's something you want to do.
ABC is airing the popular V-Day special on Friday, Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. ET, along with the more recent 2002 special, A Charlie Brown Valentine. That gives viewers a full hour of Charlie Brown fun and nostalgia. Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown will start the hour and in case you somehow haven't seen it since it's release in 1975, the special shows Charlie once again in a state of woe. He keeps a vigil by his mailbox, waiting for a Valentine. Meanwhile, Sally mistakenly think Linus' got a gift for her when really it's for his teacher. Then there's Lucy who demands attention from Schroeder.
The following special finds the gang in similar predicaments, as they all look for love. Chuck longs for a little red-haired girl while Sally once again looks for Linus' affection. (Linus is still reluctant to give in.) Snoopy spends the episode attempting to write the perfect poem on his typewriter and Peppermint Patty competes for Charlie's affections. Does anyone else think these kids are a little young to have all this drama? No, just me? Alright.
So if you have a Valentine you can snuggle up close to and watch these two funny specials on Friday, then great. But even if you don't and are rocking the single life, you can still grab some wine and enjoy watching kids go through their own love struggles. Alternatively, you can also watch it with your kids since they are the intended audience after all. No matter how you watch it or with whom, these specials are sure to be fun to watch, which is probably why they've stuck around for so long.
If you can't catch the special on Friday, make sure to set your DVR so you don't miss out or if you're really in love with the special, you could always purchase the deluxe edition of Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown on iTunes or Amazon Video, which comes with two bonus Charlie Brown episodes.
However, if you want to watch it live, make sure to tune in to ABC on Friday, Feb. 10 at 8 p.m. ET to see the full one-hour special and fall in love with the Peanuts gang all over again.
