Hopefully you didn’t forget Monday is Valentine’s Day, and you can celebrate with the Peanuts gang. The 1975 special Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown is available to stream on Apple TV+.

Unlike the new Peanuts shows and specials on Apple’s streaming service, this one was written by Charles Schultz himself.

Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown is old-school Peanuts

The classic special is mostly a collection of vignettes. Including one about Lucy discovering that there’s more audience participation in one of Snoopy’s pawpet shows that she expected.

But the main storyline of Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown follows Linus buying an over-the-top present for his teacher Miss Othmar that Sally mistakes as a gift from her Sweet Babboo.

For a taste of the fun, watch Snoopy showing off his epic Valentine card making skills to Sally and Charlie Brown in a Twitter post.

A just-in-case SPOILER for parents thinking about watching this with children: this is classic Peanuts where there are few happy holidays. This one gets a little dark.

How to watch

Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown is available now on Apple TV+. It is included in the $4.99-a-month subscription.

And there’s plenty more, including The Snoopy Show. Plus there’s Pretzel and the Puppies, and the new reboot of Fraggle Rock. There’s also the Emmy-winning Ghostwriter, and Helpsters from Sesame Workshop, Wolfboy and the Everything Factory from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the Peabody-winning series Stillwater and many more.

And, of course, there’s plenty for adults, too, including thrillers, comedies, sci-fi, documentaries and more.
