Product Information: "Arthur "The Wheel Deal" Premieres Monday, October 11 on PBS KIDS GO! Check your local listings.

 After an injury, Brain has to spend some time using a wheelchair.  But now he can’t compete in a basketball tournament for charity!  Or, can he?  He meets a new friend, Lydia Fox, who just happens to be a wheelchair basketball player…and shows him how it’s done. (Lydia is the winning character of the “ARTHUR CVS All Kids Can” Contest!)
Five new episodes premiere Monday, October 11 on PBS KIDS GO!

ARTHUR, based on Marc Brown's best-selling books, ranks alongside Curious George as the highest rated weekday children's series on PBS among children 6-11 (Source: Nielsen NPower, October 2009-July 2010). ARTHUR has won numerous awards, including the George Foster Peabody Award, a BAFTA and six Daytime Emmys--four for Outstanding Children's Animated Program. ARTHUR is produced by WGBH Boston and Cookie Jar Entertainment Inc. Executive producers are Jacqui Deegan (WGBH), Toper Taylor (Cookie Jar), and Marc Brown (Marc Brown Studios). Directed by Greg Bailey.

Funding for ARTHUR is provided by public television viewers. Corporate funding is provided by Chuck E. Cheese's.

"This season, they're hoping to empower young viewers to go after their goals and dreams. Whether that means becoming a wheelchair basketball champion, or expressing theirselves through writing, drawing, and making movies, Arthur and his friends show kids that determination and hard work really pay off," said Executive Producer Jacqui Deegan.  "Both Lydia and Neil serve as great role models, and they are  excited to have them to reinforce these important lessons for audiences."

Tune-in for this episode and more ARTHUR adventures when all-new episodes premiere Monday, October 11 on PBS KIDS GO!

The award-winning ARTHUR website is home to many games and activities, including the new game "Buster Baxter, Lung Defender." In this game, kids fight common asthma triggers in a wild ride through Buster's lungs. Supporting material for parents and caregivers can be found in the new Kids & Asthma section on the Parents & Teachers site. Also new this season, Arthur and his friends team up with Martha from Martha Speaks in a new game called "Marthur Stickerbook Mashup." Kids can choose characters and props from each show to create unique mashup scenes. Arthur will also make a surprise appearance - online only - in Martha's show opening. Finally, in a comic-creator feature inspired by Neil Gaiman, kids can create their very own comics, featuring Arthur and his Elwood City friends. The ARTHUR website is also home to most of the series educational materials including resources, lesson plans, and activities and has features to help kids understand their neighbors, near and far, and gain a better appreciation for the world around them.

 My Opinon: My grandkids love Arthur already, so this was a real thrill for them! They also love the activities online and are subscribers to the Arthur and Buster newsletter.

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
