"Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown," the 1975 special produced and animated by the same team that gave the world the now classic holiday specials - and taken directly from the late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz's famed comic strip - will air with the classic "A Charlie Brown Valentine," Friday, Feb. 12 (8-9 p.m. EST) on ABC.

In "Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown," hearts are fluttering on Valentine's Day at Birchwood School, and Linus has brought a huge box of candy for his homeroom teacher. Thinking the candy is for her, Sally reciprocates with a homemade card for Linus. Meanwhile, Lucy demands some affection from Schroeder, and Charlie Brown waits for his cards in the mail ... and waits ... and waits. ...

"A Charlie Brown Valentine" marked the first newly created programming from the Peanuts team in several years. In this special, Charlie Brown finally works up the courage to call the little red-haired girl to ask her to the Valentine's Day dance. But once again he ends up broken-hearted and empty-handed when he dials the wrong number and reaches Peppermint Patty instead.
