When Valentine's Day comes around, all of the Peanuts charcters try to seek love. The special begins with Charlie Brown sitting under the mailbox. Lucy asks what he is doing, and he tells her he is waiting for a valentine. She wishes him good luck, and he thanks her. But true to normal, as she walks away, she adds, "You're gonna need it!". Lucy tries to get Schroeder to like her. Sally, thinking that Linus gave her a gift, tries to get him something great so that he will love her, Linus tries to tell his teacher, Miss Othmar, that he loves her, and Charlie Brown desperately wants to get a valentine. In the end, everybody is disappointed, only Charlie Brown is cheered up when he gets a used valentine from Violet the next day.
Other components include a Valentine's fair and a puppet show (with effects). References to romantic literature as Linus in frustration throws chocolates off a bridge include "Elizabeth Barrett Browning" and "How do I love thee?". The joys and tribulations of homemade valentines. (Unbeknownst to Linus, Snoopy and Woodstock are down below, so the chocolates do not go to waste.)
