Really bad, Silly, Bad plot, Story, Concept, Animation, And of course Jokes,
5 February 2012 | by haxleyandrewSee all my reviews

Now many would explain how Arthur the TV show managed to air. Well it's been since 2 years and the show has gotten popular and watched a lot. By demand people watch it everyday with their kids and really like learning about it. But that's now all changed because Arthur turned into something awful.

Well that's why I'm here to explain about why you should not let your kids watch this show. And i have got a lot of reasons why.

  • First the show has bullying. Arthur and D.W fight a lot, And because they are not best friends anymore. You will hear pouting and shouting, And yelling at each other the first time you see it. - Second the show has violence like the scene where Arthur punches his sister D.W for destroying his paper model airplane that he's been working hard on for such a long time. Kids won't get how he gets grounded either by his parents. - Third because the show has a lot of adult humor in it and if that's not enough. Just wait until you hear some jokes regarding about different things.

So i don't really know who has to put up with this garbage. Maybe the studio or producers. But not me because i know their secret. And because the show lastly does have violent content. It's hard to describe how such a violent show brainswashs the little toddlers and children into seeing it.

There are a few things that i should explain to you here about. Now i know that this TV show is not as different. But yet it still is violent and that too is because the show does not provide messages that are positive or helpful. So every parent's worst nightmare would have to be violence and bullying. If nothing else.

But mostly i am here to talk about the show so let's be honest. I saw this show a long time ago and did not like what i saw in it. The whole Arthur hitting his sister thing was just out of hand and we had to turn it off. Looks like that scene though was violent when his sister wrecked the plane on purpose and his parents found out and grounded him for a week. Well that's what he gets and i don't have anything to say to him about his punishment at all. But although this junk is just plain ordinary. Everyone gets it and stop ruining this,

Also since i grew up, This show became a lot childish to me and become my least favorite. It's not my favorite anymore and since seeing it the first time. I cannot say that it was a great show. It's not and trust me because when i say this show is not my favorite. I really mean it, Not to be confused with what each character does in the show.

Now i have to say that i give the studio blame and Greg Baily for directing it just for becoming rich off money but also Marc Brown for doing this also. Not only is it a mistake in the first place but also becomes boring for a few minutes because you don't know what each character says. It could have been made better. Maybe cut out a few violent parts. But no they never listen and continue to do this to make the audience mad. Well that is really something that i would not consider nice at all. No matter what they say about it. It still is plain horrible. I don't really know what they were thinking when they made this either. It was just really horrible.

Also the adult humor is thrown into this. I can't believe that even directors would put jokes and adult stuff into a kid's show. There is a lot going on and they put these jokes because of both The Hangover and Due Date and that's completely different but i'm not gonna go into that. The problem is that kids won't be able to understand the adult humor in this show neither what any jokes are bad too. I am sorry to say this but completely all together they just do not like it either.

Of course the show is beyond Lame, It is completely just all plain boring. Plus you have to sit around 3 minutes while watching the show to know what happens in the next part. Either way this just takes time off your life. And even if you never saw the show before i would just suggest or advise you not to watch it. The characters fight, The script is horrible, The studio is to blame, And the things in this just make it plain boring. Any kids would beg you not to let them see this because of how horrible it can become at times.

Again you do not need to see this show just to know what it's about. I'm telling you that parents need to take caution about taking their kids to see this show. It does not promote education nor entertains and just continues to be horrible all along. Still do not waste your money or your time just to watch a boring TV show that nobody will wanna watch. Plus it's not even worth watching because of what it has. I'm sorry to say but this show beyond horrible is plain awful. Seriously it should be for Adults and grownups and not for kids. Again i don't know who came up with this idea but i do not want children seeing or watching this.
