Birth dates of the characters.

Post by Roabe on Wed Aug 16, 2017 8:27 pm

So I came across this little bitty. It's of a transcript of a chat with "Arthur" and "Muffy" that took place in 2002, shortly before the It's Only Rock n' Roll special premiered.

http://kids.pbs.org:8080/arthur/backstreet/chat/index.html

During the chat, someone asks how old they were when they started on the show, and Arthur replies "eight years, three months and 22 days" and Muffy replies "eight years, three months and 29 days".

Assuming they meant the show's premiere date of October 7, 1996, that would mean Arthur was born on June 15, 1988 and Muffy was born on June 8 (by my math... I even accounted for extra days in leap years).

Obviously it goes against canon because it's been said Arthur's birthday is some time in May, and that their birthdays couldn't possibly be in June because most schools are out on summer recess by that point, whereas in Arthur's Birthday they are still in school. Still, it's pretty interesting. Since this chat was held officially on the PBS website, I wonder if the "chatters" playing Arthur and Muffy were given a list of facts on the characters to reply with in case they were asked certain questions?

i always assumed arthur and muffy's birthday was may 25th since that's what it was in the books, but there is a lot of conflicting information with the show and other sources. the wiki lists arthur's birthday as being the "25th of a month with 31 days" (same with muffy's birthday) and "6 months before dw's birthday" which would mean her birthday is in november? but then in dw's perfect wish it was march 1st?

i know buster's birthday was recently narrowed down to a range between january 20 and february 18 because it was revealed that he is an aquarius in "buster's not buying it."

that's all i'm aware of for now...most of the characters don't even have confirmed horoscopes for us to even speculate on their birth dates.

In "Dad's Dessert Dilemna" it was said by Arthur that Fern's birthday is shortly after Galileo' putting it in February or March.

In AIORR, they say Fern is a Libra, and I'm gonna go with that since I already share so many personal traits with her.

buster was confirmed to be an aquarius in "buster's not buying it" so his birthday is between january 20th and february 18th
i have this headcanon where his birthday is february 18th since it's the closest to daniel brochu's birthday which is february 28th...plus i like the idea of him being a february baby lol...OR we could say he was born on valentine's day, that would be interesting.

as far as i know nothing's been said about either one of them - wait i lied...
in the "it's only rock 'n roll" special, mrs. macgrady reveals francine to be a pisces...so HER birthday is between february 19th and march 20th. jodie resther was born on november 28th, maybe francine was born on february 28th? one day shy of being a leap year baby..lol. idk i like to go by the VA birthdays XD

True but affordable since they're the only poor family in Elwood..
