Arthur, television's longest-running children's animated series, is kicking off its spring season with a week of all-new episodes, including two devoted to the issue of bullying. Please join us on Friday, May 3 at 12 p.m. EST for an exclusive screening of those episodes with Carol Greenwald, Senior Executive Producer for WGBH Children's Programming, and Ed Bowers, Ph.D. Research Assistant Professor for the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University.
You'll have the opportunity to get a special preview of these topical episodes, ask questions of Carol and Ed, and engage in conversation with others about this important topic. We're hoping that this screening will prepare you to watch and discuss the episodes with your kids on May 6 and 10 at 3:30 p.m. on witf, and have a conversation about bullying.
We will be screening "The Last Tough Customer" and "So Funny I Forgot to Laugh."
