My dad is into Arthur!

Post by MikaelaArsenault on Tue Feb 13, 2018 8:08 am

My dad is in his 50’s, and is really into Arthur now! He says that the new episodes are not good and prefers the older episodes instead of the recent ones.

Yeah, I like the older ones better when it was more drawn than made on the computer. Neutral

Glad the young fella is having a good time watching Arthur.  Tell him at 70 I too enjoy the show.  And yep the earlier ones are a bit better than the later ones.  But being old I'll forget and get to enjoy them all over again. Smile

That's great!  

I think Arthur is actually one of the more timeless, ageless cartoons out there.  As a matter of fact, it's really the only cartoon that I loyally follow and find myself pulled into.  As I've often pointed out, there's just a certain element of realism and beneath-the-surface character/issue complexity that I think keen, world-weary adults can really appreciate.  It's able to speak to children, but once you've been through real life and all of its ups and downs, it's arguably even more meaningful.  

You don't really find this in many other "kid" shows (or even "adult" shows) pulled off with such effective simplicity.  In a way, I think it's a shame that a lot of adults wouldn't approach it seriously because it's aimed, to some extent, at a younger audience, and a lot of teens think they're "too cool" for it.  

So yeah, I imagine I'll still be a fan when I hit retirement age too. Smile

My mom says the show is for little kids, which is not true at all. It's for everybody!

Arthur is definitely one of a rare breed of TV show, the variety that are not (at least during their earlier seasons) defined by an age group, but rather a quality level. The show is definitely aimed towards kids, but the quality of writing, humour and voice acting (particularly in seasons 1-4) provide an underlying earnestness and maturity that give the show an edge even to this day (bizarrely, the show has regained a little of this since the seasons 12-16 rut a few years back, although that can be subjectively pinned down to Arthur and D.W's voice actors' stitled performance at the time).

Your dad seen the Almost Live Not Real Music Festival yet? Being the codifier of my potion-addled identity, it's unmissable to any fan or casual viewer alike. Not to mention that while the extreme catchiness of 'Library Card' will most likely send him into early retirement, he'll at least earn some light-hearted enjoyment from the song.

I do think that the "age-targeting" of later episodes did damage some of that indelible element, and very much so. We get occasional treats these days, but it's just not entirely on the same order. Back then, it was a simple message that came from the heart. It believed in itself. It was a place to start.

Okay, I'll stop.

Anyone no matter what age can enjoy Arthur, To me It's not really that of a kids show. They do have some PG related dirty stuff on the show Too! Razz

Nice! I'm pretty positive no one I personally know even heard about Arthur, let anyone was into watching it... It's not a show that was ever popular here. Crying or Very sad

Not sure about that one.

Meg and I share custody over him (or her, depending on how you define gender).  We're lovebunnies in real life, so it's all community property. I love you

Regarding plushies of other characters, I know exactly what you mean.  I really do wish the franchise would have permitted more merchandising over the years, with as many well-developed characters it has.  The draught of other plushies has been painful to say the least, but it's funny you mention that just now.  A select few of us are in the process of solving that particular problem.  It'll take a few months, but it's going to start happening.  Until then, I can say no more.
