Arthur reaches season 14 on PBS Kids Go, October 11th

Arthur reaches season 14 on PBS Kids Go, October 11th

Fourteen seasons. I mean, really 14 seasons! When you think giants like Dora and SpongeBob and even the recently discussed Ed, Edd n’ Eddy were “only” on for 10 years or so, it makes what Arthur has done on PBS all the more astounding, as he goes for his 14th season starting Monday, October 11th. Whats even cooler, the show is still improving, bringing new concepts and new characters to the toon. This year, for example, the Cookie Jar Entertainment toon is introducing Lydia, a character created by a fan who won a contest last year. Better still, Neil Gaiman (of comic book and Coraline fame) will be writing a spoooOOoooky episode of the series, called Falafelosophy, appropriately positioned in the week of Halloween. In that toon, Gaiman, himself, makes an animated appearance, helping Sue Ellen along in her quest. Talk about breaking the fourth wall!
