After 25 years, Arthur – the longest-running children’s animated series on American television – is coming to an end.
The beloved PBS KIDS show, based on the bestselling books by Marc Brown, will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a special marathon Monday, Feb. 21, including four new episodes, which culminate in a much-anticipated ending that gives a glimpse into what’s in store for the future of these beloved characters.
Arthur is known for teaching kindness, empathy and inclusion through everyday adventures and many groundbreaking moments. In the new episodes, Arthur and his friends solve a mystery, see a silent movie, find out what it’s like to be a reporter, learn how to help a grieving friend, go on a family vacation, and get a hint of their futures from a mysterious fortune-telling game.
The marathon will feature more than 250 episodes and movie specials back-to-back on the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel and livestream, as well as on the PBS KIDS YouTube channel from 8 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 16 to 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 21. The four brand-new episodes will premiere Feb. 21 on PBS Wisconsin PBS KIDS 24/7 and on the free PBS KIDS Video App, and on Feb. 22 on PBS Wisconsin, concluding the show’s 25th and final television season.
New content from Arthur will continue rolling out in 2022 and beyond, including a podcast, video shorts that tackle timely and compelling topics, and digital games. The 25 seasons of ARTHUR (250+ episodes) will continue to be available on PBS KIDS.
