Arthur Read is the main character of both the Arthur book series and the PBS children's television show Arthur. On the show, he is eight years old, in third grade, and lives in Elwood City. Arthur is an English-American anthropomorphic aardvark.
Believe it or not folks but the Arthur TV Show is STILL going and is as popular as ever. Over many seasons of the show there have been many child actors who have voiced Arthur. Since Arthur almost never ages in the show (similar to Bart and Lisa Simpson from The Simpsons or Ash Ketchum from Pokemon), it is necessary to recast the role once the child actor's voice changes because of puberty or decides to move onto other projects.
Arthur was first voiced by Michael Yarmush from 1996-2000 (season 1 to 5).
Arthur was then voiced by Justin Bradley from 2001-2001 (season 6).
Mark Rendall then voiced Arthur from 2002-2003 (seasons 7 and 8).
Cameron Ansell voiced Arthur from 2004-2007 (season 9 to 11).
Arthur's current voice actor is Dallas Jokic (season 12 to present).
Arthur was also voiced by Carr Thompson for the animated film Arthur's Missing Pal in 2006.
