Lady and the Tramp
With the full Disney repertoire to choose from, there are plenty of stories of love, friendship, and family to watch on Valentine’s Day but our favorite has to be Lady and the Tramp. Kids will love watching Lady and Tramp’s adventures, and the spaghetti-sharing scene is iconic. The 50th anniversary version of the film, complete with bonus content, is available through Amazon Prime.
An Extremely Goofy Movie
Max and his dad, Goofy, both return to college and both get new girlfriends in this family-friendly Valentine’s Day movie. Kids will laugh at just how goofy love can make you act, and parents will love that disco scene! This family-friendly movie is streaming on Netflix.
Beauty and the Beast
Belle’s love for her father leads her to trade places with him as prisoner in an enchanted castle. While there, Belle teaches the Beast the importance of patience, trust, and love, complete with big musical numbers. Currently only the live-action Beauty and the Beast is streaming on Netflix, but the animated 1991 film is available on Amazon Prime.
Charlie Brown Valentine’s Day Specials
Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown usually airs on local television on or around Valentine’s Day, but you can also stream the show on Amazon Prime in a set of three love-themed Charlie Brown short films: Be My Valentine, It’s Your First Kiss, and You’re In Love. Each special is 30 minutes long, so you can watch all three back to back. It also comes with a bonus documentary about the Peanuts’ comic, Unlucky in Love.
Monster High: Why Do Ghouls Fall in Love
This 2012 release is available on Netflix and is a fun feature-length introduction to the Monster High crew. In this special, Draculaura is trying to choose who to take to her Sweet 1600 party. The rest of Monster High is also falling in and out of love and getting in and out of trouble—at one point, they almost fall into the Pit of Eternal Body Odor. Yikes! This movie is perfect for Netflix users with grade school-age children.
