What if Arthur was cancelled after Season 3?

Post by BionicBunny on Sat Aug 09, 2014 1:12 pm

As many of you know,back in the 90s many cartoons usually ended after just 65 episodes for whatever reason.Arthur hit the 65 episode mark in Season 3.Did PBS plan to stop production after this season,and since it was so popular limited production seasons to just 10 episodes from then on? If Arthur had been cancelled,would it still be airing today?

For as great as the first three seasons were, it would probably be lost in the sands of time like so many other short-run shows of the 90s, fleetingly remembered as little more than a relic of a bygone era.

The reason they limited the number of episodes churned out each season was due to the first season being a much larger order than usual - on any typical network, Arthur would have been canned after the mass of episodes introduced during the first two seasons.

The huge Season 1 presented an issue as the series ran on longer - many plot devices with Arthur had already been used up, which made creating new ideas difficult. Subsequently you see the "Manatee Effect" in later seasons - Plot Device A with characters B and C.
