Arthur is an American/Canadian animated educational television series for children, created by Cookie Jar Group (formerly known as Cinar) and WGBH for the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). The show is set in the fictional American city of Elwood City, and revolves around the lives of 8-year-old Arthur Read, an anthropomorphic aardvark, his friends and family, and their daily interactions with each other. There is a strong emphasis on the educational value of books and libraries as well as relationships with friends and family members. The series is often noted for dealing with social and health-related issues that affect young children, such as the death of a pet, dyslexia, and more recently cancer, Asperger syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease.
Since its debut, the show has broadcast 360 full and mini-episodes in 180 30-minute long episodes, and will be airing a 15th season from October 2011. Seasons 16 and 17 are currently being produced. With 180 episodes, Arthur is one of the longest-running TV shows on PBS Kids.
