'Arthur: Brothers and Sisters'
(DVD / NR / 2017 / PBS Kids!)
Overview: Based on the bestselling children's books by Marc Brown, ARTHUR follows the adventures of eight-year-old Arthur Read. So come join the world's most famous aardvark and friends as they go back to school!
DVD Verdict: If you were not aware, 'Arthur' is a show that gives off such a great message of friendship. Even though all the characters are so lovable, they each have their own unique flaws. Like how Arthur complains about D.W all the time or like when Muffy gets her snobby attitudes. Also when Francine gets competitive, and the brain brags about his I.Q.
Then there's also how Binky can be a bully and how Fern isn't very social. Well, anyway, back to my point: They're all friends even though none of them are perfect, which is one of the main reasons why I love this show so much.
Trust me when I say that 'Arthur' is not like one of those many everything is perfect and happy all the time "kiddy shows". Now, far from it for 'Arthur' represents life's imperfections and how to deal with them.
Arthur and his friends have so much fun together because they accept each other for who they are, which I think is definitely a message kids should learn early in their lives.
'Arthur: Brothers and Sisters' brings together eight stories about the joys - and challenges - of having a brother or sister. From D.W. copying her big brother's every move, to the Tibble twins discovering one of them is two whole minutes older, this DVD features loads of sibling fun!
