What exactly is the appeal of Arthur? I'm guessing some people on /co/ might have perverted reasons for liking it, but what about the people outside of /co/? What do they see in this?
>>
I can't speak for everybody, but I think it's because we all have "that episode". You know, like an episode of the show that stuck with us throughout our childhoods and shaped the direction of our lives.

Personally, I was always influenced by that one episode where Francine and Muffy go to a horse-girl club expecting it to be a group of fans of horses, only to learn that it was a bondage fetish group.
>>
Childhood nostalgia for me. The books were also some of the first things I learned to read.

I never had cable and this was the only thing on after school

If your parents didn't let you watch anything but PBS, Arthur was what you watched.

it actually has some heart, and knew how to deal with characters with: autism, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer, 9/11, etc

at times it hit real close to home.

of course, if the show came out today, /co/ would call it "autistic trash"

It's just a very wholesome cartoon and I mean that sincerely. There are no disturbing exaggerated visuals, no bright colors or crude humor.
It's a show about kids who just happen to be animals. It also has some clever writing and is one of those PBS cartoons that's not written solely for small infants and toddlers. Some of the older jokes still make me laugh like Cat Saver.

Haven't watched the newer seasons mainly because the animation is an eye sore so I can't say if its still the same quality.
>>
>>78773981
Because it's a simple message, and it comes from the heart.

Yep.
At first, OP, I was like you. I saw Arthur as a meme. I thought that is was just a show picked at random for /co/ to get it's cheap keks from with "the episode of [innocent show] where [innocent character] does [perverted thing].
Unlike you, however, I decided to lurk more before I made a thread about it or anything like that. I, too, joined in on the outrageous episode plot summaries. I actually watched a couple episodes to help improve my shitposting. But I found that it was surprisingly watchable. I kept watching more and more, and got to the point that I just play it on the side while browsing Arthur threads, and still do on other threads from time to time.
It's not just nostalgia; the show is genuinly enjoyable. Now, I'm not saying it's the best cartoon to have ever aired or anything extreme like that, but it is cozy, it is tolerable, and it is pretty funny at times.
Being as old as it is, there's plenty to watch without reruns, and it's more tolerated here than it would be were it only a couple years old, just as >>78776700 says.
It's old, established state also makes it kind of an achievement at how well it's done over the years. And yes, the animation went to shit, but everything else, the dialogues and plots and all, are still decent, and still feel "fresh" enough. And shit animation but otherwise decent is tolerable when you just watch it for the sake of something comfy to watch.

Also, and maybe most importantly, Arthur wasn't just arbitrarily chosen as the "wacky episode plot" meme. There actually are some pretty weird ones.
>The episode where Francine turns the school into a Nazi Germany parallel
>The episode where 9/11
are both real, as are plenty of other "joke" episodes. A part of the charm of Arthur is watching just another episode, but then it turns out to be a gem like this.

As a thirty-one year old man who works second shift, there's never anything on on the limited-channel-TV we get except talk shows (bleh), Cartoon Network (oh look reruns of TTG, again), Comedy Central (also reruns), and a few that do movies, PBS with Arthur at least gets me through an hour or so before one of the movie channels has something.

So I've only started watching recently, and I've got to say that, knowing it's geared toward kids, I've found it surprisingly a good watch to the point of actually laughing at jokes sometimes.

Fuck the ice cream shop kid though. Brain, I think? And the fat bully's a dick too.

This show got me into loving cartoons. I had a dream of being a cartoonist from that one time they showed the staff hand painting each scene, and talking about it.

It left a huge impression on my small mind. I had always a dream of being able to make something so magical.
Later I learned flash is making everything these days, and really ruined that dream.


I've seen almost every episode pre-flash. When ever I'm really down in the dumps I got some Arthur. It helps that /co/ makes a meme out of this. I just need Arthur sometimes.

So I know that Sue Ellen being evil/the antagonist is almost a meme now, but it turns out there's some basis for that. I mean, constantly having bizarre adventure around the world with her family was already a well-known fact, but there's even more basis for it.

Season 1, episode 21. Sue Ellen moves into town and everyone is afraid of her and coming up with crazy stories about her being evil.

The best part is that she's actually from Central America and she actually did bring a bunch of artifacts from there.

I saw the episode, it's pretty much back to status quo by the time the credits roll. Ratburn decides to move onto teaching the 4th grade, and the hipster teacher (guest star) BJ Novak decides to teach 3rd.

>Leepest dore
Personally I'm of the opinion that the snowball was just another one of DW's tulpas, like Nadine.
It may or may not even be a more powerful tulpa than Nadine, for while she was "complete" with a personality and everything, while the snowball was just an object, it was an object that others could see (only DW's family, though) and it had tremendous climate changing powers. Notice how it started snowing just after everyone made a huge fuss about it, and made up complex crazy stories about it? My theory is that the snowball channeled the characters' thoughts into psychic energy into weather conditions for snow. This function would make sense as it was originally made by DW with the thoughts, or psychic energy, of being winter fun embodied.

Aliens are just more of Buster's imaginary stories that have turned into a stupid running gag. Come on guys let's not overthink this kids' show.

>>78804257
>That one where Caillou narrowly avoids a full-blown existential crisis.
I want to say this is a lost episode because someone along the line probably said it was too dark for kids but it's probably just not something kids even worry about. I mean I don't think people actually think about the inevitable march towards oblivion until they're like 20, and they don't get really freaked out by it until their midlife crisis.

What do you guys think caused the time warp?
When do you think it started? Immediately once the first episode aired or sometime in the early seasons?
Or maybe it started BEFORE the first episode. If those trapped within the loop adjust to the progressing times, like the characters in Arthur, them maybe this stitch in time has been going on longer than 20 years.

Long ago, in the before-times, when Arthur was a big deal, it wasn't uncommon for houses to have a whopping 3 channels on their TV; news, cartoons, and local programming. My house didn't get cable or satellite or anything until I was in high school, so it was Magic School Bus, Sesame Street, Arthur, and maybe something weird like Dragon Ball on the weekends, if you were lucky and your parents were still asleep, and you could get the antenna to catch the signal properly.

if I was really adamant on not wanting to get started on homework, I'd stick around for Sabrina. Though Sabrina was fun too.

then Kids WB stopped doing weekday kids programming and stuck to only saturdays. pretty sure that was well after they ceased being Kids WB and became 4kids owned and run.

They already had an episode with lesbians, and Buster's only reaction was, "That's a lot of moms." Buster also also cross-dresses a bunch of times, and tells Arthur that it's "narrow minded" to not want to dress like a girl.

because to those who didn't have cable, PBS kids was the one who had cartoons all day until 6pm.

and arthur was probably the best written, animated, and relatable show of the whole programming block. there wasn't any math to learn, science to discover, etc. it was about social, moral and ethical situations and how to deal with them.

It really wouldn't seem out of character for him to be gay. It's not like third graders know a whole lot about their teachers' personal lives outside of school. As long as they don't make a big deal out of it, or mention it after the show is over to get SJW points, I don't see a problem with it.

She IS a weeb and she IS from Central/South America. No actual home country is given, just that she is from that region.

I think he's referring to all the martial arts. She has never (to my knowledge at least) shown any interest in anime or manga or any of that shit.

I just watched the first part. The episode aired 1 year and 18 days after 9/11.
>>
>>78877224

But Goofy is all slaptick, and Ratburn doesn't have any slapstick humor. He just does puppetry and really, really likes the late 90's Internet

I mean they're both lanky characters with long snouts and no true fans like them.
>>
>>78875749
This show has over 200 episodes, they were bound to run out of stories about the core characters sooner or later.
I'm not really a fan of Sue Ellen, because she's literally the Lisa of Arthur (even a vegetarian), but Fern is actually a pretty good character. I'm sure she's pretty fun to write, because of all the detective and film noir stuff.
I read somewhere that the writers are also a fan of George, and that's why he started getting featured in more episodes. While I'm not a George fan, I think he's kind of what Arthur was meant to be--a lovable loser. But Arthur morphed into being a dick with no redeeming qualities other than being average.

And I understand that that's not just cartoon cliches, that that stuff is actual culture and all, and that there are plenty of South Americans who are soccer players, funk dancers and Peruvian mountain girls, but those are the only ones you ever see in cartoons. Sue Ellen is different, plus, "from South America" isn't her entire character, like most South Americans in cartoons.

A few months ago I decided to watch Arthur to see what state its in
The format is still the same, the voices sound odd and the animation is shit. It was some episode where that edgy 90s dig kids mom married some faggot and the kid had to get used to his new siblings. It was on par with how the show has been, so that's good. The only part I didn't like was the middle segment where Arthur was explaining polygamy like it was a good thing.

Arthur might be the only educational cartoon to start have a Rasta opening theme:

Which episode?
Also Fern is kind of a bully and that's part of why we all like her I think.
She's like some weird autistic kid who even weird among autists in that she is super reserved and quiet and never mentions her OC even if asked directly, but when provoked enough becomes the meanest character.

Pic related, she drew this for Arthur in "A Rat Comes to Dinner" when everyone thought Arthur was getting special treatment because he was roommates with Ratburn.

In all honesty, EVERYONE was a bitch to Arthur in that Ratburn episode, even Buster.
