- Ballad of Buster Baxter; Buster Baxter, Cat Saver
- 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
- Program Description
301: The Ballad of Buster Baxter: Art Garfunkel lends his voice and likeness to the guitar-strumming moose minstrel who sings The Ballad of Buster Baxter -- the story of how Buster feels when he comes home to Elwood City. It seems to Buster, not only have his friends changed while he was gone, but they've forgotten all about him! Will he ever fit in again?
206: Buster Baxter, Cat Saver: A cat gets stuck in a tree and Buster Baxter saves the day! Risking life and limb! (Well, actually, the cat just jumped and landed on him.) It's not every day that your best friend is lionized, canonized and just plain admired... and Arthur, for one, is sick of it.
