This fall, Arthur’s 21st season premieres on PBS KIDS! In the new season’s exciting adventures and heartfelt stories, Arthur continues to model prosocial behaviors as he navigates through the challenges of childhood with empathy, kindness, and respect for others. As always, Arthur and his friends showcase the importance of being able to communicate effectively when dealing with conflicts, relationships, and everyday issues in the new season’s episodes—whether it’s banding together to save the library from closing or starting a pet toy business. The kids in Elwood City will learn about ways they can work together, help one another, and contribute to their communities.
New episodes will also stay true to the tradition of tackling tough issues that kids face every day.
- In one upcoming story, “Binky’s “A” Game,” Binky comes face to face with the topic of honesty—one of the key character attributes of the AIM Buddy Project. When Binky gets an “A” on a test, all of his friends think he cheated! Is it possible that Binky actually studied?
- In another story, “Brain and the Time Capsule,” Brain tackles another one of the AIM program’s key topics—generosity—as he learns that sharing with his friends is not always easy. When choosing what things to bury his time capsule, Brain has to decide how much space in the capsule he would like to share with his friends.
And what would October be without the premiere of an all-new spooktacular Halloween special, “Arthur and the Haunted Tree House”!
In this one-hour special episode Arthur and his friends work together and help one another get through these spooky adventures: Francine meets an elderly woman with a mysterious past; Binky finds himself at Mr. Ratburn’s amazing haunted house; Muffy and Bailey decide to cut through a rainy cemetery; Arthur, Buster, and Ladonna try to solve the mystery of who—or what—is haunting the tree house!
Join Arthur and his friends for another season of adventure, friendship, and fun!
