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

508: Bitzi's Beau: Buster and his mom are very close -- they like the same movies, the same food, the same boyfriends... wait, what?! Actually Buster hasn't yet met Bitzi's new boyfriend, but he fears the worst. Is he an alien? Is he Mr. Ratburn? Or worst of all... is he a Mom-stealer?

507: Pet Peeved: Binky volunteers to look after Francine's cat, Nemo, for the weekend. Boy, this'll be great... all fun and games and surprise toys! But when Binky ignores Francine's cat-sitting instructions, Nemo has a few surprises in store of his own.
