Arthur teaser poster 2016 by SonicClone Arthur teaser poster 2016 by SonicClone
An artwork poster I drew for a hopefully traditional animation theatrical ‘’Arthur’’ (the Aardvark and friends on PBS kids) movie (film, motion picture, feature).
And I don’t mean CGI or direct-to-video (although I do like Arthur’s Missing Pal)
The reason it says 2016 is because that’s the 40th anniversary of the Arthur books and such (By Marc Brown) and the 20th anniversary of the show.
I am surprised that I never posted it on here when I drew it.

I sure hope this happens!

I like Arthur too.  And I like Calliou even if no one else does.  Back to Arthur.  It would be nice to have a feature film as you said.  Arthur is one of the best shows I've ever seen and the best animal show I've ever seen in my opinion.  This cartoon has just about everything, and I feel this cartoon features some things other cartoons don't, but it's kind of hard to explain.  And I've noticed that this was an old cartoon brought into the 21st Century and though like on the Simpsons, the characters don't age, or rarely age, to fit the status quo, as mentioned on Wikipedia, the universe changes.  What wasn't on Arthur before, like Cell Phones, Internet (I'm guessing), DVDs, those are on Arthur now.  It was just like that with the Simpsons.

If they do a new movie, I hope they keep it 2-D animation, I don't like 3-D that much although I'd like to see Arthur's Missing Pal again, I've only seen it once.  And I want to see Arthur It's Only Rock and Roll again.

I liked Calliou as a kid, went through a weird stage of hate, but now like him again (same as Barney and Sesame Street).

Yep, that pretty much sums up Arthur.

I really REALLY hope a feature theatrical film is made in 2D animation, and not CGI or flash.

OuO That would be awesome!!
Have you seen this season's episodes? :D The opening changed a little bit, and I had a mixed feeling about it (it was the same, but some things were moving, etc) What's your thought on it, if you have seen it?

I just found a new episode on YouTube and well... did they really need to reanimated the intro? NO! ... Wasted money! :( .. sigh.,.

I mean, it's the second longest running show in the US (first is The Simpsons), so they should!
Has that never cross their minds? Like really XD

I don't know...maybe they wanted something new since the opening has been same since forever ago? I like the original one better, but who knows...

Is it just me, or in the newer episodes, the moral of the story is more "said out loud"?? Like in the very old ones, you had to watch it and figure it out for yourself (like "Don't tease kids with glasses/be proud of who you are"). But now, I feel like they just say "The lesson is be nice to people". I miss the time when kids were able to figure out and interpret the messages themselves...

Maybe they have had thoughts, but never got around or thought they could do it. There were plans for a ''Bionic Bunny'' direc-to-video film, but that was scrapped and another company decided to make ''Arthur's Missing Pal''

And the old intro should stay, even if it is REALLY REALLY old!!!!!!!!!!

Well, i don't know about figureing-out and said-out-loud, but you could be right about the morals being tooo simple. To me, i feel like the newer episodes are either to simple or well... one episode was a little annoying!

Yeah. Really? I didn't know! Where did you read about this?

It should!!!

Ikr? Which episode are you talking about?

And omg, who is that moose guy in the earlier episode? You know when Buster leaves to go with his dad and comes back, Arthur and he thought everything would be different, and that moose guy with the guitar just sings their feelings? I mean, I love that guy but who is he? I couldn't find anything about him online X'/

The singing moose was Art Garfunkel.

Oh you mean will they make it really over the top!? No, I am sure the company would make an Arthur movie respectful to the fans!
