    It's February, and love is in the air--especially on Saturday morning! In honor of Valentine's Day, we figured we showcase a selection of romances you could find in our first even installment of

The Saturday Morning Dating Game

He is a 1000-year-old gargoyle who only comes out at night and tends to tangle with evil businessmen, closed-minded thugs and mythological figures. She’s a no-nonsense police detective that helped him get acclimated to a new century and kick some tail. Don’t sit there like a stone, give it up for Goliath and Elisa Maza!

He was a ruthless businessman that took many illegal and underhanded methods to get what he wanted. She was one of the facilitators of those illegal methods until their business relationship became a personal one. Even bad guys need love, too—let’s hear it for David Xanatos and Fox!

She is a neurodivergent teenager from the Human Realm who wanted nothing more than to live in a fantasy world like her favorite witch character. She actually lived in that fantasy world and was two kinds of witches until meeting her favorite human left her as only the magical kind. Let’s show some Lumity love for Luz Noceda and Amity Blight!

She is a chaotic magical princess from another dimension. He’s a “misunderstood bad boy” who likes to keep things organized and controlled. Opposites sure attracted, because here is Starco: Star Butterfly and Marco Diaz!

He was your average nerd until a freak computer accident turned him into a chaotic lunatic. She is his classmate, and while she can’t stand the before she certainly has no problem with the after. Big hugbees for Freakazoid and Steff!

She is the only female of legal age in the entire village (even though she was technically created a short time ago through magic). They’re a village full of similarly handsome young men eager to woo her with their particular name-represented skills. Give a Smurfy welcome to Smurfette and the Smurfs!

He’s a rough and tumble sailing man with an affinity for leafy greens. She’s a fickle damsel in distress who usually ends up regretting running away with another man. Toot your pipes for Popeye and Olive Oyl!

He’s an oblivious scientist with a strong interest in spores, molds, fungus and ghosts. She’s a no-nonsense resident of Queens who would go to great lengths to get him to notice her. Who ya gonna call? Dr. Egon Spengler and Janine Melnitz!

She is a wealthy socialite with a little black book bigger than most phone books (kids, ask your parents). She is the sweet and loving girl next door with an impressive list of talents and skills. He is the klutzy average teenager who tries (and fails) to juggle relationships with both of them. Give it up for the eternal triangle of Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper and Archie Andrews!

He is the king of Atlantis and friend to all sea life. She was the queen from a similar alternate dimension until she was usurped and banished. All hail King Aquaman and Queen Mera of Atlantis!

He is the embodiment of vengeance that protects the streets of Gotham by night. She is the feline-themed thief who managed to steal his heart. Here is a truly dynamic duo: Batman and Catwoman!

He is the tree-slamming king of the jungle. She is his mate, whose name he can never seem to remember (too many falls out of their treehouse, probably). Let’s hear it for the mighty George of the Jungle and fella—er, Ursula!

He is a mighty warrior dedicated to keeping evil technology at bay. She is his loyal wife, trusted partner, and mother to their son. Welcome the out of this world couple of Zandor and Tara!

He is a world-renowned superhero when not doing his day job of being a mild-mannered reporter. She’s a hard-hitting journalist who happily puts herself into danger just to get the story. All the way from Metropolis it’s Superman and Lois Lane!

He was a nerd whose life was changed when he was bitten by a spider. She’s a fun-loving model/actress that apparently has a thing for arachnids. Let’s give an amazingly sensational welcome to the spectacular Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson!

He’s a shiftless layabout that spends all day playing with swords and trains. She’s a femme fatale who loves to tend to her lethal garden of man-eating plants. They’re creepy. They’re kooky. They’re Gomez and Morticia Addams!

She’s a modern Stone Age teenaged girl. He’s her super-strong life-long best friend, bandmate and next door neighbor. Together, they’re Pebbles Flintstone and Bamm-Bamm Rubble!

He is the well-intentioned patriarch that manages to louse up all the lessons he tries to teach his children. She is the wise matriarch who comes in and picks up the pieces to ensure the lesson makes it through intact. Welcome Papa Bear and Mama Bear!

She’s a record producer that moonlights as the biggest pop act at her label. He’s the road manager and engineer torn between two women he doesn’t even realize is the same one. It’s showtime for Jerrica Benton/Jem and Rio!

He is the mightiest rodent in the world. She is his girlfriend and, unbeknownst to her, also his secret identity’s boss. Here they come to save the day, Mighty Mouse and Pearl Pureheart are on the way!

He is the city’s greatest rhyming hero when he’s not busy shining shoes. She’s a reporter that often ends up needing rescuing from that week’s villain. There’s no need to fear, Underdog and Polly Purebred are here!

She’s the sweetest, most popular girl in school and the head cheerleader. He’s a conniving con man who would do anything to get ahead and for his friends. Meet Bayside power couple Kelly Kapowski and Zack Morris!

He’s the captain of the wrestling team and an army brat. She’s an enlightened feminist that thinks he’s a pig. Never has there been a more mismatched pairing than A.C. Slater and Jesse Spano!

He’s a plumber from Brooklyn stuck in an alternate world full of fungus. She’s a princess who can’t seem to shake a sinister lizard. Set out some pasta for Mario and Princess Toadstool!

He runs around all night in a high-tech suit protecting Neo-Gotham. She’s just trying to finish school and get a handle on why her boyfriend keeps disappearing at random times. Let’s hear it for the schway couple of Terry McGinnis and Dana Tan!

He is the terror that flaps in the night. She’s a mixed-up spell-caster once from the wrong side of the law. Let’s get dangerous with Darkwing Duck and Morgana MacCawber!

He is the face that launched a multibillion-dollar empire. She’s the one who stuck by his side through thick, thin and Pegleg Pete. They’re the ones that are friends to you and me, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse!

She is a once-powerful agent of chaos that now molds young minds with her own school. They are a powerful Bard who hates being the center of attention in public but led a rebellion against a corrupt regime from within. No need for a requiem when you’ve got Eda Clawthorne and Raine Whispers!

She is a powerful plant witch once hindered by her own self-doubts. He was a zealot who was saved when he made the friends he didn’t know he needed. Say hello to Huntlow: Willow Park and Hunter!

She’s a lovable nerd who’s been forced into trying new things for the fate of the world. He’s her…not-too-bright best friend along for the ride that she must eventually give in to her feelings for (y’know, to save the world and stuff). E komo mai to Hailey Banks and Scott Denoga!

He is a brash and headstrong Brooklyn native that runs as hot as his power. She’s equally brash and headstrong, but her love and loyalty to those she cares about is as powerful as the wind. The world is in good hands with the likes of Wheeler and Linka!

He was originally brainwashed to destroy the very people that would become his family. She was a replacement that came into her own. Give a morphinomical welcome to Tommy Oliver and Katherine Hillard!

He’s the chili dog-scarfing, way past cool hero of the planet Mobius. She’s the rightful ruler and leader of the resistance movement. Give it up for Sonic the Hedgehog and Princess Sally Acorn!

He’s the stalwart leader of the X-Men. She’s a powerful telepath with a tendency to pass out. He’s a wild man from up north that likes to play by his own rules. Let’s hear it for the marvelous mutant triangle of Cyclops, Jean Grey and Wolverine.

He’s the hero of planet Mobius stranded in our world. She’s can be a bit bossy and stubborn, but she loves her speedy acquaintance. Taking a break from their quest to get back home, it’s Sonic the Hedgehog and Amy Rose!

She is the cheerful best friend of a ghost dedicated to enhappifying the world. He also enjoys enhappifying the world, but he comes from a family of ghost hunters. Raise your turnips for Molly McGee and Ollie Chen!

And finally, he’s an enthusiastic young frog that often bounces headfirst into trouble. She is an energetic frog that enjoys “ambushing” sprig and playfully sparring with him. Let’s hear it for Sprivy: Sprig Plantar and Ivy Sundew!
