I have a confession to make. I’ve been hiding it for a while. Even if you knew me well, you’d be clueless about this secret obsession…but now, it’s time to come out of hiding. I have to get it out in the open.
I like Arthur and his Friends on PBS.
There. I said it. Sure, you might say, “Well, it’s ok. You’ve got kids. You naturally watch things your kids like. Don’t sweat it.” I wish it were that simple. Arthur’s got this attractive pull that I can’t deny. Every episode has little humorous tidbits. Humor that only an older person like me would get…only, the humor doesn’t go too far, just like Pixar and Disney do it. A little sarcasm here, a little satire there. One of my favorite episodes is when Arthur and his friends try to write their own stories for a contest, and the episode turns into a parody fest, making fun of Beavis and Butthead, South Park (“Hey, you squished Buster!”), and Dexter’s Laboratory. But, since I couldn’t find that episode online, here’s another one worth watching.
So, I’m glad I got that off my chest.
oh, and I like Word Girl too.
