Arthur’s finale episode review
March 21, 2022
“Arthur” is a PBS kid show created by Marc Tolon Brown who was an American author and illustrator of children’s books such as the books “Arthur.”
The first episode of “Arthur” aired on October 7, 1996. “Arthur” was the longest-running children’s show in the U.S. when it ended on February 21, 2022 after 25 years. The show won several awards including multiple Daytime Emmys for outstanding children’s animated program, as well as a Peabody.
According to an eighth grader Kar Oscal, he rated it a 7/10. He found it interesting, but would not watch it again. His favorite scene is when they walked into the library and opened a secret door which had a table inside with a fortune-teller game on it. They found out what they were gonna be when they got older and they left the door open, which made what the fortune-teller said come true. His favorite character was Buster Baxter, because he looks cool.
Sixth grader Anderson Moran rated it a 9/10 because he thought it could have been better. He liked how Arthur found his passion and job. His favorite character was Buster Baxter. He feels sad that the show ended because he watched the whole show growing up and he thought everyone was going to stay young. His favorite scene was the end when Arthur goes to see everyone grown up.
Six year old Rodrigo Moran rates the show a 6/10 because he didn’t like how other characters besides Arthur were acting. He does not think the show is worth watching and he wouldn’t recommend it to his friends or anyone because he doesn’t think they would understand the show. His favorite character is Arthur because he is really smart, and his favorite scene was when Buster found out Arthur wasn’t from Transylvania. He feels sad that the show ended because he wants them to be small forever like him.
In conclusion, I think the finale episode was just okay. I rate it a 8/10 because I didn’t like the fact that they were grown up since it makes me feel older. It made me a bit sad that the show finished because they were a big part of my childhood.
