Arthur comes to an end after 25 years- creator Marc Brown gets candid about the show’s end and future plans

Animated series Arthur is coming to an end after 25 years

Based on Marc Brown’s picture books, the PBS kids series “Arthur” is coming to an end. One of the longest running animated shows in TV history, the series recently aired 4 episodes on February 21. And that was the 25th season and the final one.

But even after reaching the end of the epic series, it seems the 75-year-old illustrator is not done yet. He feels that there is a world of unexplored possibilities for his beloved creation including podcasts, games and more.

Brown published the first “Arthur” book back in 1976. And right from the starting point of the series in 1996 till its end, he was involved in it. In an interview with Variety, the author said that it surprises him that people are still so much in love with “Arthur” after 25 years.

Brown never intended to put a race on Arthur

In the series, we see that Arthur and most of the people in Elwood City are Black. Apart from the colour of the characters, Ziggy Marley performed the theme song. In fact, there were plenty of other features in the show inspired from Black culture and traditions.

In reference to that question, Brown replied that he never put any race on Arthur. But he absolutely loves the fact that when any child steps into the show, they can relate and identify with any of the characters. He added that this came as a massive bonus with Arthur.

Marc Brown talks about future plans

Let’s be honest, we would all love to have more of Arthur isn’t it? So when the question came regarding why the team decided on 25 seasons, Brown said the decision was made a few years ago. He added that the 600 stories they covered on several topics will always be timeless. However, when “Arthur” began, there wasn’t any technology like today.

Brown commented that they want to try out some new things like podcasts, new games, public service spots on PBS and even specials. The author said in conclusion that the door for new opportunities is always open with PBS and he’s excited about solving new puzzles.

For now, all we can do is bid farewell while watching the finale episode and hope that we are in store for major surprises in the future!
