Postcards from Buster

Spring 2008 Television
Ages: 8 - 10 yrs.
Network: PBS
Review:
This long-running spin-off of Arthur continues to charm and educate. Buster Baxter, of course, is an animated rabbit, and each week he ventures off to some exotic location and/or meets interesting new people. Along the way, he learns some gentle lessons that leave him just a hare, er, hair wiser. The production team behind Buster delivers a show that is hip, edited in a whip-fast fashion, and complemented by thumping hip-hop and rap songs, as well as snippets of live-action footage of the many places Buster visits.
