This CD contains songs from the PBS hit animated Arthur series, and they are sung by the actual Arthur characters. Most of the songs were baced on episodes from the first 4 seasons of the program. That's right, you'll get to hear Arthur (voiced by Michael Yarmush), Buster, Francine, Binky, the Brain, Mr. Ratburn, and D.W. sing their songs on this fun CD. In the liner notes that come with the CD, not only can you sing along with the songs, you get to see the characters comment on some of the songs. You'll see the characters comment with speech bubbles for the songs. Also, near the back of the liner notes, you'll find a list of the voiceovers who provided the characters' voices for the show at the time the CD was produced. And further more, you'll hear familiar singers like Ziggy Marley and Art Garfunkel.
Theme Song: Arthur says it's his favorite song. Sung by Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers.

One of our son's favorite programs on television is Arthur and Friends. If you don't know who Arthur is, then you either don't have children under fourteen, or you don't have television. The nicest part of the Arthur series is that it can be found on most PBS stations in the US.
Arthur (an aardvark) is author Marc Brown's Emmy Award-winning creation. This popular children's TV show is based on the adventures and personality quirks of Arthur, his precocious sister D.W., always-bossy Francine, Buster Baxter, Binky, and the gang. One of the reasons this series is so popular with both kids and parents is that it is based on real situations and peer issues that children deal with every day. Arthur and his friends reinforce positive messages: respect for others and one's self, creativity, all blended in with sense of fun. Enough on that for now, if you haven't experienced this cartoon series, just find a TV listing for your area and see what you have been missing.
This is one of our son's favorite music CDs. It's a great compilation of music that is fun for both kids and adults, and this is an understatement. There is a story to this album, and in it we find Arthur descending into his basement to make a home recording with the aid of his friends: Francine, D.W., and other favorites from the program. Most of the songs are instantly recognizable from the show, including theme song, performed by Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. Also present is Art Garfunkel's "The Ballad of Baxter Bunny." The funniest one that keeps cropping up is D.W.'s favorite song, "Crazy Bus," as she keeps trying to introduce this wonky, kiddie rock tune into Arthur's CD, frustrating Arthur to no end.Read more ›
The album is what I wanted to complete my nostalgia!
Like the other one, this has a great range of musical styles. Including a great Ratburn acapella song reminiscent of Huey Lewis and the News.
I prefer this album to the other, simply because there's such a broader selection of song styles, and the songs are more complex. But not so complex that my son doesn't just love them.
The one about the leftover goulash never fails to crack him up.
If you have a kid who is a fan of Arthur, this one's a keeper.
