No other cartoon touches morals quite like it.
Arthur is a long-running and popular animated series, all about the lives of Arthur and his friends and family in Elwood City. Arthur Read is a kind eight-year-old aardvark boy, living with his parents and two younger sisters. Although he is the main character of the show, he isn't always the one in the spotlight. His friends and family also learn morals, mainly about social skills and respecting others, without being preachy or 'over the top' about every lesson. In fact, the show's way of covering different issues and morals is sweet, charming, sometimes funny, and always unforgettable. The fact that there is no perfect character relates it to the true world: everyone has their flaws and their strong points. Even 'nasty' characters like Arthur's irreverent sister DW, the big bully Binky, snobby Muffy and blunt Francine have golden hearts they let glow. This is a great show that has managed to keep on going without jumping the shark. In fact, it is starting to cover more prominent subjects, such as autism and cancer. You're never too old for Arthur. Kids of all ages should give this cartoon a go.
