Editorial Reviews

When Arthur's dog Pal disappears, Arthur must enlist the help of his friends to track him down. While Pal discovers his newfound freedom, Arthur discovers how much he misses his dog. Good thing Arthur has the gang to turn to-especially his best friend, Buster Baxter who dusts off his old detective gear to get on the case. This canine quest leads Arthur and Buster across Elwood city, deep into the bowels of an ice cream factory, past a giant cow on ice skates, and right up to the point where all hope seems lost. Could thesolution to this caper, though, be right in front of Arthur's eyes? And why has D.W. been acting so funny lately? One thing's for certain, Arthur is determined to get to the bottom of this case. Follow Arthur, Buster and all their friends through the streets of Elwood City as they sniff out clues and chase after leads...and learn a valuable lesson about friendship, teamwork and responsibility.

The 3.5 year old grand daughter loves Arthur!
G. Jelinek
Fans of Arthur will probably enjoy this DVD, but I can't help but feel the animated DVDs/videos are a lot better (but this is from an adult point of view, of course.)
Janet Boyer
My son loves his DVD player and movies, and this was one on his list.

We caught this movie on PBS when it first came on, and my daughter was hooked. It's a change from the regular Arthur animation - this one is computer animated. She was very intrigued by that fact, and then the story is about a puppy... well there you go! The story is well written, a little scary at times when the guard dogs are chasing after Pal. There are even a few catchy tunes as well. Highly recommend this to every Arthur fan out there!

As an avid fan of the Arthur television series, I found his first CGI movie to be very disappointing. The pace of the story was rather slow and uninspired, and it looked more like a computer game than an animated movie. A lot of the clever and humerous dialog I expect from the series is strangely absent. I recommend instead, Arthur: It's Only Rock 'n Roll, which is my favorite Arthur special.

We taped this from PBS and soon our tape will wear out and the DVD will be in our home. My daughter loves this movie and in true toodler style wants to see it again and again!!! My father actually groaned and got off of the sofa and left the room because we'd played it so much!!!! (an added benefit???) :) I agree that the dog chase scene is a little scary, she clutches my legs but still peeks at the screen; but, it's not too scary and it all works out in the end. :) We LOVE Arthur!!!

Follow the clues with Arthur on an exciting trail to find his missing dog Pal in this first-ever movie, featuring all new CGI animation. You'll join Arthur and his whole crew of best friends, including Buster Baxter, Binky Barns, Francine, Brain and Muffy. Arthur's parents and sister, D.W., also figure prominently in this DVD. Buster dusts off his hold detective gear in order to solve the case--so get ready to uncover the secrets of Arthur's missing dog!

From an adult standpoint, the Arthur series on PBS is clever and downright hilarious. I can't tell you how many times my husband and I have caught ourselves sitting down watching this show!

When my son saw Arthur's Missing Pal advertised on PBS, he of course wanted the DVD when it came out.

I bought it for him and he watched it a few times--but then he hasn't brought it out again. (To be fair, he goes through seasons with his DVD's--often watching "old favorites" out of the blue...)

I watched Arthur's Missing Pal with my son, and it was weird; it didn't "feel" like the animated show and it lacked the cleverness I've come to expect from this series. Even the "dream" sequences seemed uninspired. The CGI was so-so, with something being lost in the translation from animation to computer rendering. Although I recognized everyone, it didn't seem like the gang as envisioned by Marc Brown!

Fans of Arthur will probably enjoy this DVD, but I can't help but feel the animated DVDs/videos are a lot better (but this is from an adult point of view, of course.) I don't think Arthur's Missing Pal is worth more than $10; in my opinion, parents/adults are better off ordering animated Arthur DVDs which often include 3 or more episodes. (The Boy With His Head in the Clouds is a recent favorite of my son, as is Arthur's Perfect Christmas, Arthur's Double Dare and Aruthur's Celebration.)

This movie manages to bring together all the great things everybody enjoys about the "Arthur" series. There are nods to DW's obsession with "Mary Moo Cow", Buster's annoying quirks, and Arthur's "Charlie Brown" personality. Pure and simple, this is "Arthur". If you typically enjoy watching the "Arthur" cartoon series with your children, you can probably manage to enjoy this movie.

Although the voice-acting is as superb as it is in the original animated series, the animation in this film is quite different. This film is computer animated. Although I typically enjoy computer-animated films, the animation in this film is somewhat sub-standard. It is very similar to the children's series "Backyardigans". It is a 3-D environment, but things move very slowly, are not highly detailed, and in general appear very much like a "video game". It might be interesting seeing Arthur's world in 3D animation, but it detracts slightly from the original feel of the series. For fans of the original series, it will take some time adjusting to this. The characters don't have that "fluffy" quality -- they appear to be plastic.

Putting that point aside, this movie is a good family movie. It is short enough for short attention spans, and short enough so as not to bore parents to tears. The story is enjoyable, and you won't regret watching it a few times with your children.

Wow, we really enjoyed 'Arthur's Missing Pal'. As always, Arthur comes through with teaching appropriate behavior in the form of responsibility. The movie was exciting to watch and had many plot twists to keep the entire family interested. We have watched it again and again. D.W. steals the show and is absolutely hilarious. My kids always mimick her dialogue and her actions! A true treat for the entire family

Thank You PBS

Our son had seen a preview of the movie on another kid's DVD. We finally got it for him for a special occasion. It has been a great dvd for him. Our son is at a an age where dvds he once enjoyed, he now finds a character "scary". Arthur's Missing Pal has passed our son's criteria for no scary characters or scenes. It's a very pleasant semi-detective movie with the message of loving one's pet.
