About Arthur


About Us

Arthur is an animated series aimed at viewers ages four to eight. ARTHUR's goals are to help foster an interest in reading and writing, to encourage positive social skills, and to model age-appropriate problem-solving strategies. The show is based on the children's books by author/illustrator Marc Brown, who has been working with the beloved aardvark for over 40 years. Born one night when Brown was telling a bedtime story to his son, Arthur soon evolved into the book Arthur's Nose, published in 1976 – and then into television, movies, audio books, music CDs, apps, and more.
