3. SpongeBob Squarepants: “Valentine’s Day”
Episode Synopsis: Adults and kids alike enjoy the sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea!
In this episode, SpongeBob and Sandy get together to give Patrick the best Valentine’s Day gift. While Sandy works on the gift SpongeBob keeps Patrick distracted with activities. The two end up going to the carnival. But Patrick grows more and more impatient and chaos follows which includes an attack of chocolate-eating scallops and wreaking havoc at the carnival when he thinks SpongeBob didn’t give him anything. Before he really loses, Sandy appears with his chocolate hot-air balloon.
4. Rugrats: “Be My Valentine”
Episode Synopsis: This may be one of a few Rugrats episodes where you will see Susie and Angelica in the same clip together with genuine smiles. But it has nothing to do with their arguably complicated friendship. In the two-part episode, the girls are battling out over their crush. Angelica dresses up as a cupid, while Tommy, Chucky, and the other babies look for a valentine for their dog, Spike and the adults dress up in some pretty wild costumes for the Valentine’s Day “Love through the Ages” dance. Sounds like a way to keep the love going.

5. The Proud Family: “The Legend of Johnny Lovely”
Episode Synopsis: This particular episode is not necessarily characterized as a Valentine’s one, but the charisma of the one-time guest character makes it on. It’s also one of the few episodes you will hear Papi sing. In the season two episode, a guy named Johnny Lovely comes to town and Penny and her friends are immediately enticed by him. But Penny thinks Johnny is too good to be true. After all, nobody is perfect and could possibly look good and be good on the inside too. But it turned out, he really was a genuinely nice person. And it didn’t hurt that he wasn’t too bad to look at either!
