Show Description:
ARTHUR is a daily animated children's series based on the popular books by Marc Brown. Each half-hour segment consists of two independent stories connected by a live-action segment featuring children responding to ARTHUR with letters, poems, music, and art. It is a show about growing up, exploring the world and finding your place in it. It is about that time when kids find inner strengths, learn to make choices for themselves and take responsibility for them. Whether it's facing down a bully, worrying about a new teacher, or being the very last person on earth to lose his baby teeth, Arthur and his friends manage to solve their third-grade crisis with imagination, kindness, and a lot of humor. In each show, Arthur guides us through energetic, emotional stories that deal with real "kid issues" - timeless difficulties and situations that children face. Above all, it's a comedy that tells its stories from a kid's point of view.
