A Wonderful Story
26 September 2018 | by Hollywood_YodaSee all my reviews

Arthur's Perfect Christmas is a great addition to the PBS animated series. With a story all its own and not a remake or homage to Its a Wonderful Life or A Christmas Carol (like so many other shows do).

The story is of a little boy, Arthur, trying to buy each family member the perfect gift. It's a very sweet story, and possibly one of the best TV Christmas specials in existence. If you enjoy the regular Arthur series, you are sure to enjoy Arthur's Perfect Christmas year after year!
