A Charlie Brown Valentine (2002)

Posted: February 14, 2011 in TV & Webisodes

A Charlie Brown Valentine was the first Peanuts special to be produced after the death of Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz in 2000. It also marked the first time a Peanuts special was animated with Digital ink and paint as opposed to Traditional cel animation. It also utilized the drawing style similar to the comic strip, with a white outline around Lucy’s hair and Snoopy’s ears (this was dropped in future specials).

The bulk of the music score is classic melodies composed by Vince Guaraldi, some tunes which had only be utilized once (“Heartburn Waltz”). Other more notable tunes, such as “Charlie Brown theme”, “Peppermint Patty” and a jazz/rock version of “Linus and Lucy”, were used as well.

A Charlie Brown Valentine also depicts the Little Red-Haired Girl in full view, though she remains unnamed in this special (in contrast to her first full-view appearance in It’s Your First Kiss, Charlie Brown when she was named Heather).
