Arthur is purely Garbage, This show is Really horrible and fails to entertain it's viewers.
5 February 2012 | by haxleyandrewSee all my reviews

There were some times when Arthur first aired on TV for quite a while now. Now they just release out new episodes with the same garbage and same old aardvark which is Arthur.

So right now before i go into discussing about this show. I wanna tell you that when i was a child i first saw Arthur on TV. No joke but then we had to turn it off because it was not appropriate. Now it becomes boring and most recently it's horrible due to the bullying.

Kids are not to learn any of the bullying or violence from this show. And it goes on to say why is this TV Show really bad. I will tell you why. First off Arthur TV Show is just horrible to watch. Second it's a show that has nothing appropriate. And third the show promotes violence and has psychical content that i think has gone too far.

The reason why this TV show fails to entertain it's audience is because of what kind of content it really has. Of course speaking of which, This show is like beyond horrible and is your worst nightmare yet. There is a lot going on and kids will not be able to understand from their point of view about Arthur and his sister D.W. and how they used to be friends until they changed quite a bit. And they fight a lot now.

Also the TV show has a lot of bullying where Arthur yells at his sister D.W. and she starts yelling at him too. But the reason why I'm saying this is because most parents will know that none of this stuff is purely made for kids. Sure there is some violence and bullying used in this show. But by all means there is a lot of shoving, Pushing, And fighting, This show was meant to be broadcasted only for Adults. And also i do blame Arthur because when he meant to hit his sister, He means that she destroyed his paper model airplane on purpose and he hit her. Now that is horrible right there.

Also missing from the point of value is education and learning. And Arthur does not promote that here. - Here the story is a lot different because Arthur indeed shows how violent he really is when somebody decides to mess up or torment his stuff all the way. And we never get to see it. But education and learning is another thing that goes beyond my point of value. So unless there was education and learning and it made it educational then of course i would watch it. But I'm not gonna volunteer to watch something boring on TV that is just getting old and really not my favorite anymore.

Though i need to be honest and clear about this show. It really makes me angry. Plus the reason behind is that some director named Greg Baily actually directed this and ruined it for everybody due to it's content. Get over it Greg Baily, I had enough of you directing these episodes. It's time to stop. And also Marc Brown too must stop doing this. Because Greg Baily ruined this entire series because he was rich. So that points to the fact that he can continue to earn money i don't think so.

Also this is lame and really cheesy if you ask me. It's just horrible. With adult humor thrown into the mix, You might remember quite a few jokes but will you get them, No you won't because it makes everyone really ashamed to think that the jokes themselves are not bad at all. But still this takes parts from films like The Hangover or other films like Due Date and adds them to this show.

It's just ridiculous and because it's garbage. I'm not gonna go into it. Greg Baily totally ruined the show like Joel Schumacher did with Batman & Robin. There was a lot going on here and he did not deserve to ruin such a good show. He made a lot of money but who knows what ruins such a good franchise and then a show. Greg Baily should seriously stop making ridiculous episodes of this show just to earn money he won't get it. Plus here are some reasons why i hate this show.

  • Because this show is violent and contains a few violent parts. - Because it promotes bullying and fighting with Arthur and his sister D.W. - Because the producers need to get a life before making a ridiculous TV Show, Because i promise you that this is just awful.

If you are a fan of Arthur, Then don't see it. Nor watch it, Plenty of people think it's horrible and i agree with them. This show is just childish, Silly and pointless, And of course is pretty dumb. Also there is adult jokes and stuff that kids may not be able to understand. It's pointless to watch. So save your money and time by not seeing this TV show for good. Also please save your money and don't get this because you will end up throwing it away.

Also please do not buy the merchandise for this TV show. It's a baby's show and is horrible to watch. Indeed it's the worst TV show because it explains nothing about proper education and because it's like Batman & Robin. So don't go out buying your kids this junk because it's marketed as a baby's show. Also please do not bother watching this show because it's really violent too.
