Just as we have our must-see romance movies, there are also Valentine’s Day episodes for kids on February 14th. Of course, most kids aren’t too fond of the soft romance that comes with the holidays. While adults worry about the chaos of booking restaurants and babysitters, little ones may be more concerned about those cheesy character-themed cards for classmates and those heart-shaped candies. Even so, many kids’ shows celebrated Valentine’s Day, or the general subject of love, with cute themed episodes.
Most of the episodes featured on this list deal with school crushes, familial love, and platonic friendships. After all, how many best friends do you know who will make you a giant edible chocolate balloon or bake you a huge cookie? There are also valuable lessons to learn, like the ultimate cure for a broken heart and the do’s and don’ts of getting your dog a valentine. Also, who knew Arnold Shortman from Hi Arnold! could be such a Casanova? And no matter how mean the world may seem, there are good people, pretty faces and all.
