Product Description

Everyone's favorite aardvark gives kids a new spin on seasonal traditions this one-hour special showing children many ways to celebrate "the holidays." Plans are underway in Elwood City for the best holidays ever as Arthur D.W. their family and friends make preparations for perfect gifts perfect parties and perfect family traditions for Christmas Hanukkah Kwanzaa and even "Baxter Day" (Buster and his mom's special celebration). The only problem is just like in real life perfection is hard to attain and things start to fall apart.

Amazon.com

There's a lot of pressure involved in planning the perfect Christmas celebration, and Arthur and his friends and family are feeling the stress as the holiday approaches. Muffy is so focused on throwing the best Christmas party ever that she doesn't even hear her best friend Francine when she repeatedly tells her that she can't attend because the party falls on Hanukkah--a time of important celebration for her own family. Buster's mom is so intent on creating a wonderful Christmas despite the absence of Buster's father that she's exhausting them both. Binky's plans to bake goodies for the homeless are threatening the stomachs of all his friends, and D.W. is driving the family crazy with her pleas for the season's most popular toy. And Arthur is absolutely determined to make this Christmas perfect, no matter what. Things go wrong, as they often do, and everybody discovers that you don't always get what you want in life--but if you're flexible, sometimes you get something even better. (Ages 3 to 8) --Tami Horiuchi

If you're familiar with the Arthur program airing on PBS, you already know just how clever this show can be. Created by Marc Brown and based on his books, Arthur Read is an aardvark who shares adventures (and misadventures!) with friends like Buster Baxter (a rabbit), Francine Frensky (a monkey), Binky Barnes (a bulldog), Muffy Crosswire (a very RICH monkey), and others. Arthur is often at odds with his little sister D.W. (Dora Winifred) which makes for much of the shows comedic moments.

In Arthur's Perfect Christmas, the scene begins with Arthur sitting at the piano, softly playing Pachebel's Canon. This movie, like the TV show, uses day-dream sequences--and Arthur plunges into a snazzy song called "Perfect Christmas". You see, this holiday, Aruthur wants it to be absolutely PERFECT...but things go wrong in the town of Elwood City, for both Arthur AND his friends!

For example, Muffy expects Francine to attend her big Christmas party, but Francine has told Muffy REPEATEDLY that her family is having a Hannukah gathering the same night. What happens when Francine doesn't show up for the party to receive her present?

Buster Baxter worries about his Mom who seems to obsess over having a perfect Christmas for her son, especially since the divorce. Buster comes up with "Baxter Day" which takes the pressure of his Mom and displays the true meaning of the holidays--love and kindness.

Arthur searches the mall for presents for his parents, D.W. is desperate for a Tina the Talking Tabby (whose theme song haunts Arthur everywhere he goes!), Uncle Fred makes an unexpected visit on his way to a Floridian Christmas, and Arthur's Dad insists on making an "authentic" dinner that was likely served in Bethlehem over 2000 years ago.

We have watched this Arthur movie countless times. We celebrate Chanukah and enjoy watching Francine celebrate with her family...it is always a beautiful moment when the menorah is lit for everyone to see. You can be of any religious faith to enjoy this movie...the kids and I love it(and I'm 40!) We highly recommend it.

My kids love this movie. It's the perfect length, only an hour. The movie includes all the main Arthur characters, with the typical doses of lessons learned, just like the PBS cartoon. Arthur hopes for the perfect Christmas. But will it snow? Will DW get the over-advertised toy she wants? Will Mom like Arthur's present? Best of all, Hannukah and Kwanza are celebrated along with Christmas. This movie is a joy through and through.

Finally, a longer Arthur movie! I thought this movie was very good. Kids of all ages are sure to love it. There's a bit more singing than there is in the Arthur TV series, but it was not too excessive. Really brings out the Christmas spirit and shows children what a joyful time Christmas is. If your child is an Arthur fan, he or she will definitely enjoy this movie. I hope more longer Arthur movies like this one will be made.

We watch this movie all year long. My 4 year old refers to it as boogie woogie christmas due to the theme song which he sings along with the video, while in the bath tub, just about any place. I wish Marc Brown would provide us with another full length feature Arthur movie. I have sat through this movie dozens of times with my son, and haven't gotten bored with yet, I'm almost 40! Buy it!! I love it and your children will too.

first i shood warn you, for any true arthur fans [[as am i]], it might be a little bit hard to adjust to the new voices of arthur, DW, and others, when the DVD first arrived, i was shut to the idea of changing my all-time fave kids show!!! but i gave it a second chance...and found i loved the musical numbers. Tina the Talking Tabby, arthurs Piano Piece, Muffys Christmas Madness and more!!! its an enjoyable DVD with all of your favorite elements. It never gets old, and is even fun to watch for hundreds of days in a row!!! =o]

This movie is excellent! I'm older and have watched it 15 times. You learn about Kwanza, Hanukah, and Christmas. At first Arthur thinks he will have a Christmas with everything going his way. Then win his mothers present brakes he's heart broken. Everything then works out, it wasn't the way he thought but it was great. Each character has a side story like when Muffy and Francine get into an argument. This movie is great and I hope you share it with your kids.
