Based on the best-selling children's books by Marc Brown and a Daytime Emmy Award-Winner for Outstanding Children's Animated Program, Arthur chronicles the adventures of the world's most famous aardvark, eight-year-old Arthur Read, and his family and friends. In episodes that never moralize or talk down to kids, Arthur and his friends encounter the joys and difficulties that all kids experience. From keeping secrets to going to the hospital, Arthur manages to handle each situation with imagination, kindness, and humor.
