"and I said HEY! what a wonderful kind of day, where you can learn to work and play, and get along with each other". Talk about a catchy theme song! I grew up watching Arthur and I am so happy that PBS KIDS still airs, and releases DVD collections featuring him, DW, Buster and all of their friends! Arthur: The Ultimate Friendship Collection is coming to DVD this August!
PBS DISTRIBUTION ANNOUNCES “ARTHUR: THE ULTIMATE FRIENDSHIP COLLECTION” ON DVD THIS AUGUST
This August, PBS Distribution will be releasing more than 10 hours of friendship-themed Arthur episodes.
In this sprawling, 48 episode compilation, children will watch as Arthur learns how to work with teams, look out for friends and family, and navigate the everyday situations that Arthur and his friends find themselves in. Arthur plays on a baseball team, Muffy temporarily stays with her friend, Francine, where she has to share a room (and even eat leftovers!), Buster returns home after a long exotic vacation, and Arthur gets nervous their friendship won’t be the same, among many other classic episodes in “Arthur: The Ultimate Friendship Collection.”
Every purchase supports public television for all.
Families can also find full episodes of PBS KIDS series for free on PBS stations, the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel and PBS KIDS digital platforms, including pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video app.
