Roses are red, Kanamits are scary, I’ve often wondered if Venusians are hairy.

Do you remember exchanging Valentines in public school? Every kid likes February 14th when they’re that young (well, unless you’re Charlie Brown!) because it means two things: 1) No real school work, and 2) Arts, crafts, and candy!
Peanuts Valentine's DayI never cared about the candy/chocolate (I’ve never liked chocolate!), or the fun Valentine’s Day-themed word puzzles and colouring pages. No, I was more anxious to get my hands on that little brown paper bag, the red and pink construction paper, and the glitter. Because few things were more satisfying than taping that fancy little arted-up Valentine “mailbox” to the side of my desk.

Vintage Unicorn Valentine

I ask you, what’s more fun than vintage Valentines? They’re colourful, cute and clever, and are often adorned with sickening sugary puns. No, come on! They aren’t sickening at all! That’s all part of their charm. But picking out just the right one for each classmate was a chore — making sure not to send any unintentional “signals” by making a poor choice. Because there was always that one design in every box that was just a little TOO suggestive to give to the kid you secretly (or not so secretly) couldn’t stand. Or the kid that your best friend had a crush on. Girls just know not to go there. Even when she’s 8.

You know what else is great about vintage Valentines? Because of their fun, quirky nature, you’d be amazed at the kinds of mash-ups you can create. Like what I have for you today. Submitted for your perusal, my Twilight Zone Valentines!

Serling Valentine

“Chesterfield King Extra Length? Sure!”

I had to laugh when I came across some authentic vintage Valentines whose TZ potential was blatantly obvious. Blog/Twitter friend Mike actually brought up the idea of TZ-esque Valentines a few years ago when Paul and I had some fun with the hashtag #BeMyTZValentine. And once I got started with these, it was hard to stop!

I paired each legitimate Valentine with a single episode of the Twilight Zone that I thought it best suited, and I didn’t do any episode cross-overs with the receiver/sender — both are characters from that specific episode.

So if our favourite TZ characters exchanged Valentines? I suspect it would look a little something like this. Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day!
