- Program Number
703; 96A; 100A
- 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
"Ants in Arthur's Pants" To excel in science, Mr. Ratburn's class has to prove that they have P.A.N.T.S. -- the ability to be patient, attentive, nosy, thoughtful, and systematic. And Arthur's certain he's got 'em to ace his ant project ... until the crawly creatures end up everywhere but in their ant-farm! Can Arthur's P.A.N.T.S. save his project -- and save the ants from the exterminator?
"Don't Ask Muffy" Muffy starts an advice column in the school newspaper to launch her career as a rich and famous talk-show host. There's only one problem -- the kids are ignoring her, and flocking to a mystery advice-giver instead! If Muffy wants to be as popular as Hoprah Linseed, she'll have to learn a few lessons about competition and what really makes a good listener.
