I was just a child when Arthur's Perfect Christmas was released on VHS. It is a wonderful, even Millennial, example of how Christmastime is not just for Christians, Americans, nor commercialization. It offers a little something for everyone. Not only does it offer something to appease those who celebrate Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, but it also has an Atheist and Agnostic alternative through the Buster Baxter storyline. Arthur has always offered a politically correct, family-friendly, and altruistic body of work that past and future generations can enjoy.
