One of the shortest run times on the list at 35 minutes with three episodes, Cat in the Hat: Hurray!

A Chipmunk Valentine (2007)

Love and Mischief are in the air with Alvin and the Chipmunks: A Chipmunk Valentine. This is another musical adventure, perhaps not as heavily so as the Barney special, but the Chipmunks are famous for their voices.  After Brittany rejects his invitation to the Valentine Ball, Alvin develops an alter ego, Captain Chipmunk. Brittany is quickly won over and accepts Captain Chipmunk’s offer to the Valentine Ball. Fun and enjoyable consequences follow when Alvin wakes up at the dance and realizes he’s not the dashing Captain Chipmunk, but rather regular ole Alvin. This episode headlines the following few episodes and this collection is one you’re sure to fall in love with. With imagery perfect for the holiday, and characters that always give viewers a great time, A Chipmunk Valentine is sure to please kids and many parents, too. It is one of Felipe Femur’s top three picks for Valentine’s day. If you enjoy this one, check out the I Love the Chipmunk Valentine’s Special (1984) for a similar experience.

Gnomeo & Juliet (2011)

An interesting retelling of Shakespeare’s famous Romeo and Juliet using lawn ornaments. Gnomeo & Juliet is a tale about Mrs. Montague and Mr. Capulet, who are two elderly neighbors who also happen to despise one another. Whenever they leave their respective gardens, their garden gnomes come to life. The Montague garden is filled with blue-hat gnomes and the Capulet garden is populated with red-hatted gnomes and thus the classic feud begins. Like their human gardeners, the gnomes also despise each other, and the 3D animation follows Gnomeo and Juliet as they fall in love. The film is rated G and the ending is quite a bit lighter and happier than the classic telling, so this is a perfect one for all ages and also one of Felipe Femur’s top picks.

Madly Madagascar (2013)

Another short one at 22 minutes, Madly Madagascar is good for a quick Valentine’s Day fix. It’s perfect for those who have a hard time sitting still for a long period of time that many of the full length options on this list would demand. If you purchase the DVD you’ll also have access to the Over the Hedge short as well as the short titled First flight. Madly Madagascar is certainly Valentine’s Day themed and has all your favorite characters from the feature length movies, so it is a safe pick for kids.

Two main themes run through the short holiday special–one featuring Alex the lion, and the other Marty the Zebra. Valentine’s Day is revealed to be one of Alex’s favorite holidays back in the zoo, as he was showered with Valentines gifts from admirers, but now that he’s stranded in Africa, he’s finding that Valentine’s Day is not what he was used to. Meanwhile, Marty meets a girl who he likes, but she’s not that interested until Marty finds a love potion. Unfortunately, while she does becomes interested, so do most everyone else.

Sesame Street – Elmo Loves You! (2009)

Arguably the most lovable of the Sesame Street characters, Elmo stars in this direct-to-video compilation. He takes viewers on a Valentine’s Day card learning adventure from crafting the card, to learning about how a kiss expresses love and what to put on his card, to who to give it to. Other characters such as Bert and Ernie, Cookie Monster, and Grover make appearances and there are several musical numbers throughout the collection. R.E.M make a guest appearance. Overall, the viewer feel included while viewing. Kids will learn something about love, card making, and Valentine’s Day in general.

Generally best for the younger kids, not so much older kids and teens.

Veggie Tales: Lettuce Love One Another (2013)

A Veggie Tales trio of episodes that focus on the theme of loving others. While it is not specifically Valentine’s Related, the episodes do capture the important part of the holiday: love. The three episodes included are King George and Ducky, Abe and the Amazing Promise, and Big River Rescue.

King George and Ducky is a retelling of David and Bathsheba from the Book of Second Samuel using 3D animated vegetables, as is typical of Veggie Tales. Abe and the Amazing Promise is a retelling of Abraham, and Big River Rescue is also known as Tomato Sawyer and Huckleberry Larry’s Big River Rescue, so the source story doesn’t seem to be the Bible like most Veggie Tales but rather Mark Twain.

Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You (1999)

It’s hard to dislike Winnie the Pooh and his friends, and that makes this one of Felipe Femur’s top picks for the Valentine’s Day movies for kids and teens list. The Disney wiki describes it well and so the following is their synopsis:

“When Pooh and his friends discover that Christopher Robin has fallen in love with a girl, they believe that he won’t have time for them anymore. After Owl tells them about the ‘love bug,’ the gang decides to find one to cure Christopher Robin of his ‘love-sickness.’ But Pooh decides to let the bug go so Christopher Robin can be happy with who he has now. The next morning however, Pooh and his friends receive Valentine cards from Christopher Robin and they learn there’s room in the heart for friends both old and new.”

Edward Scissorhands (1990)

With its PG-13 rating, this movie is not for the youngest of viewers. Edward Scissorhands is a romantic dark fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp. The film follows a man named Edward, who was made artificially by a scientist in a castle on a hill, and remains an unfinished creation who has scissors for hands. Edward is taken in by a suburban family and falls in love with their teenage daughter Kim, leading to an unlikely romance. Full of engaging visuals and humor, the film is a classic. It may not be your typical Valentine’s Day movie, but for those atypical couples and quirky singles, it may just prove to be the perfect pick.

Romeo + Juliet (1996)

With its PG-13 rating and liberal use of gun violence, Romeo + Juliet does not equal the best choice for young children. It is, however, a great modern retelling of William Shakespeare’s famous play, Romeo and Juliet. It stars Hollywood big names Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes and quite a few others you’ll most certainly recognize. While it retains the original Shakespearean dialogue of the classic play (a unique aspect of the film),  the Capulets and the Montagues are represented as warring mafia empires instead of blood families. Furthermore, swords are replaced with firearms.

 It does maintain the tragedy element of the story, so it might prove to be a little dark for some. For most is will be a romantic, modernization of the classic, and with a talented cast. and exciting scenes with gun play and beautiful sets.
