the arthur The series finale has officially arrived. It’s been a long journey for the sweet spectacled aardvark and his pals and it’s been a bittersweet moment for fans. In fact, many were heartbroken when PBS announced that the 25th season would be its last. But there was a light at the end of the tunnel, and it was worth the wait. The last episode of arthur called “Blabbermouth/All Grown Up” featured Arthur, DW, Francine and the rest of the gang as adults. Yes, adults. Sure, it’s sad to say goodbye, but what a way to end it.
The episode sees Arthur, 20 years later, with long, loose hair if you can believe it, sitting at a booth at the Sugar Bowl getting ready to show his friends the graphic novel he’s written. And this graphic novel is about them. Grow. In fact, the first chapter is “How I Got My First Pair of Glasses”, just like the very first episode of Arthur titled “Arthur’s Eyes; Francine’s Bad Hair Day,” which aired in 1996. It appears the entire series was based on Arthur’s graphic novel.
As for the rest of the gang, Arthur’s little sister, DW, grew up to be a traffic cop, Buster Baxter is a school teacher, Binky is a weatherman, Francine has a sneaker shop and, of course, Muffy Crosswire is candidate for mayor.
