Watch Arthur

Arthur is an animated American television show designed for children about the adventures of an eight year old aardvark called Arthur Read. The show revolves around Arthur's friends and family taking on issues that could be faced by most children in their everyday lives; the majority of issues tackled are based on health problems, such as cancer and social issues including the birth of a sibling.

The second longest running animated show in the U.S. behind The Simpson's, Arthur is a co-production between Canadian production company Cookie Jar and U.S. station WGBH. In the U.S. the show is aired on the Public Broadcasting System network; around the world Arthur is shown on networks including Australia's Nickleodeon and the BBC in the U.K. Over 180 episodes have been animated since the show was first broadcast in 1996.

Children's author and illustrator Marc Brown created the fictional town of Elwood City and the Read family for a series of children's books that form the basis of the Arthur show. A number of spin offs from the Arthur books and television shows have been produced using the characters in the Arthur books, including Arthur's classmates Buster and Muffy. Elwood City is frequently visited by celebrity guests, such as Lance Armstrong and Neil Gaiman. Arthur and his friends do not age in the television show, remaining eight years old throughout in the elementary school class taught by Mr. Ratburn. The world around Arthur and his community changes to include modern technology and current events, including the changing figure of the U.S. President.
