    I always feel so stupid to still be watching Arthur, but what is it that hooks us all in?

    I think its that even though its a kids show, arthur really doesnt act like a 9 year old. He acts more like, 12ish. And DW acts like shes a few years older too. This factor makes it a little easier for younger and older kids to watch and I personally grew up with arthur (I've been watching it since it began, so I was probably around 5 years old) Also a lot of the characters are pretty funny, and they throw in a lot of stuff that little kids wouldnt get, like, they just wouldnt make any note of it, but older kids get it and its sort of funny. Like, there was an episode when Arthur and Buster are watching a movie called "Children of the Beans" and thats off of Steven King's movie  "children of the corn." So like, a little kid wouldnt understand that because they wouldnt have seen a Steven King movie, but an older kid would probably find it funny they threw that in there.

    I know exacly what you mean. Sometimes when The Simpsons come on i watch Arthur instead. But i dont feel stupid about it lol. I bet its becuase we have memories watching it as a kid.

    I think it's beause it's a very believable show.  Children are like this.  And you can learn from it too.

    Its a show that has pretty nice lessons, and they are realistic, unlike other kids shows I see on PBSKids.
    Plus, the animation is pretty nice.

    Why call yourself 'stupid' for watching it? It's a funny show, Arthur is very sweet. The characters may be animals, but they have better personalities than a lot of people.

    There are two reasons why I like the show. 1; I liked it when I was a kid. 2; The show has realistic views on things.

    Plus, Arthur is a good role model, along with everyone else on the show.
