Since it's more than relevant here is that the main to problem with Arthur is constantly change of the voice actors, especially Arthur. That said, blew me away that D.W. is voiced by little boys. Either way, I surprised this show is still running.

A lot of these 20-year anniversaries have made me feel vaguely uncomfortable but this is the first one that straight-up messed up my brain.

I'm stunned that this show is on still. I thought it'd be canceled at this point.

@LordofEvil96 Every since my childhood days the way that we update our furniture and materials to the point where we have never seen these shows in long years that i thought Arthur would be canceled on PBS by then. But.. i guess not.

I swear this show's animation and voice acting gets worse over the year, I dislike the extremely robotic movements of the current seasons from what I seen. I will always prefer the day when they have those living books

@HienFan Moving from Traditional to Flash is usually a pain. It is because the production moved from Cookie Jar to 9 Story.

@thomwim Considering the work of 9 Story...

@HienFan 9 Story Entertainment did a good job with Wild Kratts. Like, really good. But with the first 7 episodes of Pound Puppies and other cartoons? Not so much.

I love this show. I thought it was extremely funny, when Arthur tried to get Francine's uncle to perform at the library, while D.W. gets YoYo ma to perform there and an argument starts between them. Finally D.W. replies to Arthur by saying "Well it's too late Yo-Mama says he's coming" she meant YoYo ma but she didn't get the name right.
Very funny places they have like the Once upon a restaurant, and Pizza Paula's Pizza Palace theme park, where everything is made of pizza you can eat. But a funny fad toy of the Woogles got beaten when Arthur pops a juice cap and clicking sound got all the kids interested. But the Christmas special has a very annoying but funny advertising song for a toy of Tina the Talking Tabby that D.W. was sooo hoping for Christmas, but got Quakers the talking duck instead.

@Dragonguy72 I thought it was a talking Turkey.

man that theme song sends chills! I remember it very well! If I ever have children, I will make sure they learn of the shows that brought me so much joy I did as a child!

what a great show this was! I watched it all the time when I was a kid. Mum even got me a few books through I think a scholastic program. Still have them! Really adorable show. I miss it so much!

I used to love watching this cartoon when I was little. It had a very nice plot in every episode and always made children learn many things through the actions of each character! Very cute and fun!

Who doesn't love this show (and the theme song too)?!

@JayGirl10 My 8-year-old cousin doesn't like it. Why, I don't know.

@TeridaxXD001 Maybe your cousins dead inside...

@Rocie Nah, I think it's more she didn't give it a chance. She tends to hate things she's never tried.
