Developed from Marc Brown's beloved books, Arthur reminds us all of how it feels to be 8 years old. Just like your average kid, he overcomes the dreaded obstacles of third-grade life, such as his tough teacher, Mr. Ratburn, bullies, and mountains of homework. At home, everything between him and his little sister, Dora Winifred or D. W. for short. is a struggle: who gets control of the television remote, who can play their Crazy Bus CD, and whose hobbies are dumber? Will Arthur ever win one of these pointless arguments? Probably never, because not only is D. W. fiercely independent, she's also very smart. But despite it all, they are still brother and sister, and when they're not arguing, they can accomplish great things together. His helpful friends - an assortment of colorful animal cohorts always provide sound advice and a few laughs too. They are Francine Frensky (a tomboy who would rather play sports than go to the mall), Buster Baxter (an enthusiastic gourmand), Alan "The Brain" Powers (a bona-fide third grade genius who even writes computer programs in his spare time), Muffy Crosswire (the rich girl with a real heart of gold), and Sue Ellen Armstrong (a traveler of the world and geography expert). Arthur can also sometimes be seen with Fern Walters (a soft-spoken musician with semi-hidden goth interests), Binky Barnes (acts like a bully, but enjoys pastimes such as ballet and clarinet), George Lundgren (a somewhat shy boy who be truly entertaining when he tries), Prunella Deegan (who was supposed psychic powers and is actually in the fourth grade), and Jenna Morgan (a rarely seen girl). And of course, who could forget Pal, Arthur's lovable, loyal pet dog?

Ratburn: "Shall I repeat the question Sue Ellen?"
Sue Ellen: "Red! The answer is red!"
Ratburn: "No. 12 times 12 is not "red", It's 128. However, if I had asked what color your cheeks are turning, "red" would have been the correct answer."
