I had no idea Arthur was an aardvark. I never thought about what he was, but if I had to pick, I would have picked bear cub.

I thought that comic ended years ago, after the author went on a weird, misogynist rant.  I think the hero went to hell or something.

Arthur sucked and his sister was an asshole.


Whenever Arthur or Doug came on it was NES time.

The original books had Arthur drawn as an actual anteater with a long snout. Then his snout started shrinking over the years, either due to laziness or simplification of the character design to make him easier to draw for animation.

I used to watch every morning with my kids before school started but they find it boring and would rather watch stupid youtube videos. I will try and make them watch the end though cause im curious where it will go. Crossing my fingers it was all Bob Newharts dream.

I didn't realize Arthur was still being made.

That show started airing when I was a child.

Crazy. It had almost as much staying power as The Simpsons.
