Arthur’s Snow Biz; Bugged
Program Number

803; 106A; 109A

Series Description

Each of the Arthur episodes consists of two independent stories that focus on themes and events central to children's lives. 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 dilemmas with imagination, kindness and a lot of humor. "What children love about Arthur is that he feels real to them," says Carol Greenwald, WGBH executive producer. "The emotions he experiences are universal. When Arthur triumphs over something, kids think they can, too. "The series will build on that sense of empowerment by showing how Arthur and his friends use effective, age-appropriate, problem-solving skills. Bringing a book-based series like Arthur to public television will also promote reading and writing skills. Series release date: 10/1996

Winter hits Elwood City and Arthur sees dollar signs! His snow-shoveling business is booming -- that is, until Buster decides to get in on the action. As the temperature drops, the competition heats up ... and the boys battle to be the best on the block.


Sure, Brain can be a know-it-all, and sometimes he really bugs people. But when Brain wakes up one morning to discover that he's a cockroach, he can't believe it! Is this a dream ... or has he finally become a real pest?!
