Longest running kids’ show continues with a new adventure for ‘Arthur’ - featuring music, family and some llamas!

PBS KIDS will premiere a new one-hour Arthur musical special, “The Rhythm and Roots of Arthur” on Monday, January 20. Based on the popular books by Marc Brown, Arthur is television’s longest-running children’s animated series. The award-winning show for kids ages 4-8 continues to touch audiences young and old with its heartfelt and humorous stories about family, friends, and the challenges of growing up.

Young viewers are invited to pack their bags, buckle their seatbelts, and get ready for an Arthur road trip to the Read family farm! Arthur’s Great-Grand Uncle Theo is celebrating his 85th birthday, so the Reads (plus Buster) are off to join in the festivities. With the help of Cousin Miles, some llamas, and a little bit of music, they all discover what it truly means to be family.
