They could do it like a normal Hollywood reboot, so Arthur will be replaced by someone with twice his looks and half his talent, the story will involve a lot of pointless explosions and not much more, and there will be plenty of lens flare.

Or maybe people who watch PBS are smarter and funnier than that.

I think a great episode would be having Arthur ride around drunk in a limo picking up hookers, and then falling in love with a raccoon waitress.

Arthur's grandmother is prescribed medical marijuana and D.W. starts sneaking some for herself. Arthur finds out and wants his own cut instead of ratting her out. Rather than becoming troubled youths, Arthur and D.W. end up bonding during their smoking sessions and develop a friendship in addition to their bond as siblings.

Surprised so many classmates on my Facebook have it liked. I'm in my late 20s and back at college, and when Arthur was in its prime it was a show mostly for little kids, and I was well above its target demographic.

Yea I remember when the books  came out, they always  had them  at the book fairs that scholastic  had each


year. At, the time it become a television show I was way beyond the demographic. Saw a couple episodes  having a brother  that is 12 years younger  than  me.

Oh, no! Arthur has gone Hollywood! He's addicted to rhinoplasty!

I've watched a few episodes of Arthur in my time. It's sweet without being syrupy.

The process of becoming rounder and more child-like is called neoteny. It happens to most cartoon characters because it makes them more likeable and easier to draw. Famous cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, the Simpsons, and Garfield the Cat have all gone through it. Some people prefer the rougher early sketches. Humans also inflict neoteny on animals through conscious or unconscious breeding for juvenile traits--big heads, round features, short snouts, playfulness, etc.

The current incarnation of Mickey Mouse has the shape and size of a four-year-old. He started out looking a lot more like a rat than a mouse. Parodies tend to reverse the neoteny and make him look even nastier than th average rat.

Arthur is a Canadian production. Canada is really big in children's television because Canadian shows are kinder, gentler, slower and more acceptible to many world markets than American shows which tend to have more violence, sexual innuendo, marketing, and so forth. The Canadian pacing is less geared to the attention span of a hyperactive Taz the Tasmanian Devil, and thus suits many countries where children still play outdoors, play with toys rather than electronic serial killer games, and are expected to be quiet, respectful, etc.

Canadian TV shows tend not to be as gritty and acidic as Britcoms, but much less idealized and hyper-focus- grouped than American shows. They can more easily deal with subjects such as gay marriage, or magic, or science, without religious nutters and others getting their knickers in a knot. Hence the Magic School Bus. That woman is a witch. A good witch, maybe, but she would be burned at the stake if she appeared on Fox or one of the Big Three networks. She's probably safe on PBS. Parents aren't as insane near the Canadian border as they are in the Heartland and the South.

Canadian kids TV is at once more mature and more child like. There's less jaded hurrry-up-and-become-a-teen so we can sell you smut type thinking and more good clean fun aimed at kids who don't have to dodge bullets or drones on the way to school. Canadians have learned to be fun and funny rather than preachy when educating children. There is an assumption that children are not small adults or idiots, but rather, children, with a different way of learning but minds that are intelligent and open.

In short, Canada owns a big slice of PBS for kids while the UK owns the adult slice of the network. Many Canadian production companies work with those in the UK, France, Australia and elsewhere to make shows for the world market. Pingu, for example, has characters who appear to be speaking a mixture of several languages, just like the Teletubbies, but not as infantile.

Canada has made some of my favourite kids programming and cartoons. I believe that you should never give a kid a book or a show that you couldn't enjoy yourself. They are not evil midgits, nor are they empty boxes to be filled with the Bible and flags and marketing. They are smart little buggers and if you don't find the show gripping or funny, chances are they won't either.

Here's my contribution:

Arthur has nocturnal emissions. He wakes up one night and discovers a wet spot on his bed and pants. He thinks he wet the bed and through a trial of crazy, wacky events, he learns he's just ejaculating in his sleep and learns that it's perfectly normal through a very awkward conversation with Mr. Ratburn at the grocery store. As per usual, D.W. is an absolute coont to Arthur throughout the entire episode and makes fun of Arthur's white pee.
