When I was young I thought Arthur was a "bear" but as I grew older he is an "aardvark." Great show as long as PBS kids could keep it running. So far my fav show is Francine's bad hair day and my worst show is D.W the Copycat. Although I'm 16 I still watch this show and will remember it as a classic.
Its just great! Im 18 and I still watch it when I have days of work! I began watching it in its first year, so I was about 8, and I loved it. You just can\'t help but love the show, the titles grab your attenion cause its such a catchy song [which im not ashamed to admit I have on my mp3!! hahaha ok so Im a little ashamed!] and the storylines are perfect for the age group they are aimed at [I would change them slightly but hey im 18 so im ment to find the storylines a tad cheesy!]
I have to admit that sometimes Arthur gets on my nerves but all in all I love the show :D
I have watched this for some time and I still do and I'm 18 now I just think it is so cute. Not bad like some shows I know of just some kids trying to be kids and grow up in a strange world. I started watching this when I was like maybe 8 or 9 and I have liked it since. My sis watches it all the time so I just watch it with her. I just love Arthur he is so cool with his big glasses and D.W. her goal to bug Arthur at all odds posibble. Such a classic
I remember when I've seen this show when I was a kid. I really liked it a lot! This show rocks and never gets boring, even though some episodes can be. The episodes are almost always very interesting. My favorite character would have to be Sue Ellen. One of my favorite episodes are Muffy Goes Metropolitan. I also don't think that Postcards from Buster is such a bad show.
I'm 21 years old. I first watched Arthur when I was 14 or 15. Just one episode of Arthur was enough to make it a favorite of mine.
This show literally shows us what it can be like to a kid, especially when you've got a younger sibling always pestering ya. And I know we have all, even adults, experienced something from all of the episodes.
Arthur is lovable by not just children, even older people like it. Watch just 1 episode. I guarantee you'll like it.
Well, this one's a little complicated. It all started back in 1997, after NTV7 has cancelled Rugrats. I started looking for a replacement show to like, and someone pointed me in the direction of Arthur and dispite the totally different format, I decided to give it a shot. And so, when NTV7 bringed in Arthur in 1998, I decided to take a sample in it, and what follows could practically be called love at first sight. I started following the show relegiously, and actually grew to like D.W. Then, the inevitable came. NTV7 cancelled Arthur. They only aired season 1. Then, the next year, I caught a season 2 episode in Singapore. Of course, I kept telling myself that NTV7 would one day bring it back, but then, totally lost it when they cancelled Caillou as well. I wrote in, and they replied me in a snobbish tone that they won't. Fumed, I started what would be an ongoing boycott against the channel.
NTV7 eventually brought in episodes up to Season 4, but by then Disney Asia has already aired up to Season 5. Disney ceased airing Arthur in 2003, and when I recently wrote in to them, they did not reply, apparently they're not interested in doing so.
*Sigh* I'd do anything just to be able to watch Arthur again. Singapore recently aired Season 9 according to one of my correspondents, but as usual I could expect to not get to watch it.
This is one of the best shows on PBS Kids! I hope that it continues to be a great show!!!!! I am in highschool in my sophmore year and I still really enjoy this. Even my parents whatch it and enjoy it. My favorite one is when "Busters Breathless" because I allso have asthma and I can totally relate to the whole show.
a show about 3rd grade kids and their wild adventures with arthur D.W. and buster as main characters. This show is educational and sets a good example for young kids. it is also funny the idea of this show came from Marc brown also the author of the Arthu
well what i can say is that this show is well thought out. It's seems kids can understand it. the idea is very clever and uniqe. what's uniqe about it is that it's kids who are animals now you don't see that every day?
The idea and plot of the show I gave a thumbs up because it just plain good, and not all kids shows as good as this one are educational.
I loved this show ever since it first aired on my birthday in 1996. I used to watch this show since I was back in kindergarten. I still enjoy watching it sometimes on my free time. I like the newer seasons of this T.V. series because I never get bored of watching them over and over again.
I love Arthur it is my faviorte show on PBSKids. I been watching it since when I was little. This show is much better than these babyish Nick Jr shows like Dora the Explorer, Go Dieago Go, Blue Clues, Little Bill, Oswald, Rubbadubbers, Miss Spider, Lazytown, The Backyardigains, etc. It also better than watching Barney, Teletubbies & Boohbah. This show revoles around a Arrbark named Arthur who has to deal with problems in school & at home & also have to deal with his little sister D.W. Arthur friends are Buster Baxter, Binky, Francine, Muffy, & The Brain. Man, I love this show It rules. I give it a 10.0
Ever since I played the PC game of arthur and discovering this show, I've really liked this show. What I love about this series is the different animal charater's based on people and sometimes a few celebritie's or well known charaters e.g. It showed one of the peanut's gang(charlie brown) as an animal at christmas(forget what he was). What I also love about this show is the theme tune that is really catchy. It's like bob marley has come back from the grave to sing this great song. overal a true classic that could go on for years to come as it's almost been 10 years since it first came on television.
I\'ve been watching this show for about 10 years! Its addictive because of its information and life lessons. I\'m sure this can\'t be classified as a toddler show because of the character Brain and the vocabulary the characters are using. And seeing how long its been going on, I don\'t think its going downhill. I give this show 2 thumbs up!
This show rocks. I've watched for ages & haven't gotten tired of it. This is what a kids show should be like. Teletubbies & Boohbah are corrupting the children everywhere. Arthur & Thomas & Friends are two better shows than those other two. If your child is watching Teletubbies or Boohbah, then make them stop watching them right now before their lives are ruined from mindless dribble. Arthur is better choice.
When I first watched this show, I was four years old. I immediately took a liking to it then and "Arthur" became one of my favorite cartoons. However, a few years later, it became a distant memory to me, as new shows at the time like "Digimon" and "Sailor Moon" took its place. I am now thirteen years old, nine years after I was first exposed to Arthur. So when my six-year-old younger sister came home one day with a DVD of six episodes of the show from Blockbuster, I was expecting the worst. As I was babysitting, I decided to endure watching it, automatically assuming that simply because I had grown older, that the show would be an absolute pain to watch and that I would wonder why I had ever liked it in the first place. But after watching the episodes on the DVD, I found that my assumption was quite wrong! "Arthur" is a show that anyone of any age can like if you think that a show about an eight-year-old aardvark dealing with life in the city sounds interesting.
Yes, the show is based on the books originally written by Marc Brown, but it can stand quite well on its own, and I've often found that the episodes that are not based on one of the books are the ones that I enjoy the most. Be forewarned that if you are looking for an extensive plot, this is NOT the show for you--Arthur likes to keep things simple by mostly keeping to a different story (and sometimes even a different point of view) every episode. Rarely will you see an event from one episode mentioned in another.
The only downside that I can really find in this show is the music. The same background music has been used since the beginning of the show; you would think that there would be room for at least a little new music every now and then. The theme song is okay, but most songs that are found in the actual episodes will make older viewers cringe.
Overall, if you are looking for a good show for a toddler or preschooler to watch, Arthur is definetly a must. The overall morals and themes of the story will definetly win over a young child, and perhaps even you yourself!
When I was little I didn't know what Arthur was, I asked my mother but hillariously enough, she didn't know either. For the longest time I thought he was a cat. The point I'm Trying to make is I think an aardvark is just to confusing for little kids. It's not exactly an animal reapeated over and over in school.
I love Arthur! I watch it everytime it airs on C N! This show is perfect for anyone! You don't have to be old or young to like this show! I just hope it lsts another 5 years! It's awesome and deserves it ! Since every show is getting cancelled!
Arthur is an okay show. But on Mr. Ratburn's chalkboard there are so many numbers and problems. It scared me and my cousins about 3rd grade. When it first came on I was almost two so I didn't know much about the show. I understood almost every word on there.
As I got older I would watch it after daycare and school.
When I entered kindergarden it came on at 5 so I would get to watch it.
This show is awesome I enjoy every episode of it. I used to watch it whenever I have a day off from school. Some people think it is for babys but I don't. This show is real funny and I don't see anything wrong with watching this show I am not ashamed to admit that I watch this show. This show is cool.
Arthur is a loved one in my house. It\'s theme song is one of the best. I\'ve been watching this show since I was a little kid. It\'s issuse are true and gives goods ways for young viewers to solve them. Plus, I love the section when they go to kids classrooms. They never came to my school though!
Arthur is such a great show. All of the characters have their very on unique and funny personalities. Its so cool because his imagination is exactly how I remember mine being. Although I must say that Arthur and his friends seem much older than they really are. I guess that makes for a better show.
I maybe 13 but I think this show is wonderful!it's great for everyone! this show is sooo cool! i wish I'd have the time to watch it! it's really good! I can't believe I dumped this show it's better than ever! so when I get the time I watch this show. cuz it's the only good show on PBS kids.
It is the life a boy/aardvark named Arthur. It teaches how is like to deal with problems when we were young. These problems don't just happen to Arthur. It happen to be his friends or his family's problems too. It all started with Arthur having get glasse
Arthur may be a kid show, but I absolutely love it. It really show the true characteristics of real problems such as "bad hair day" and "Allergic to Peanuts" or even "the nightlight". The show Arthur is such an ispiring story in a way that can help kids deal with their own lives.
This show follows Arthur, an aardvark in grade three in Mr. Ratburn's class. It has been almost ten years that Arthur has been on the air, and it shows no signs of slowing down! It's a great kid show teaching good morals to children while adding a certain sense of humour that older children might enjoy. I am dissapointed that after a long time, the voice of Arthur has changed. I am sad because they replaced him twice now, and are doing voiceovers of old episodes with this new voice. Over the years, Arthur has gotten better and better and I wish it well next season.
Arthur is most definitely one of the best childrens' television shows out there. The characters are both vivid and hilarious. The lessons are poignant yet simple. As a lover of the Arthur book series, I have to admit that I like the television show even more than the books! Arthur is such an endearing underdog that it is impossible to not root for him. Francine is antagonistic, but it is still fun to watch her and Arthur's friendship overcome obstacles. It is also always fun to watch Muffy learn lessons about not being able to buy her way out of every situation, see Binky in his softer moments, and get annoyed with D.W. alongside our protagonist, Arthur.
Arthur premiered when I was just seven years old. Now I'm sixteen and I still watch it! But here's the problem, it's getting worse and worse. And it's not just because I'm getting older. It's because the people who create this series are desperately running out of ideas. Every episode nowadays seem to focus on a real life problem that kids seem to have. For example, Buster having asthma, George being dyslexic, Francine not having much money, Jenna being a bed wetter, and so on. The episodes from the first two or three seasons were great! But around 199, things quickly started to change and have only gotten worse. If you're a newcomer to this show, I reccommend that you watch the first few seasons before anything else.
I absolutely adore watchig Arthur. All the characters are intentionally funny. Everyone i know adores this show. The show is made for kids, but i do believe that most of the adults catch some spare time to watch this funny Cartoon.
My favourite character is DW. She always throws tantrums, even in public. She loves to annoy Arthur. She is an absolute adorable little brat.
There is one episode that really confuses me. It's the one where someone steals DW's Snowball. In some episodes, DW still continues to complain about her stolen Snowball. I really have no idea who stole it.
I'd like to say a big Thankyou to the creator of this wonderful Cartoon.
This show is extremely funny at times and very true because you can relate to the problems arthur and his friends are going through. Although i am 14 years of age, I still religously watch this show and I hope for many more seasons.
The world of arthur is filled with friendly betrayal at times, and intriguing for people at all ages. There is not one show that I look at and think that it was silly or stupid. Although the voice changes that took place about 2 seasons ago do not sound like the characters original voices I still watch the show every day and relate arthur to myself. The show's music is fun and motivating to any child watching the show. I would be disappointed if the show would cancel and I am always waiting for new seasons to come.
