This popular children’s series, based on the books by Marc Brown, features Arthur the Aardvark and his friends using language, communication, and problem-solving skills at school, at play, and in interpersonal relationships. Designed to encourage reading, writing, and cooperative problem solving, the programs outline dilemmas faced by elementary children—from a “bad hair day” to the temptation to cheat—and show Arthur and friends working together to figure out what is the right thing to do.

Each regular half-hour episode includes two complete animated stories, plus an interstitial segment featuring real kids and built on a specific theme.
