  • Mr. Brown, I'd like to know whether you deliberately created D.W. Read to be an unlikeable character? Most people who watch the show despise her, but was it your intent for her to gain that much hatred or was it not?

    • In this video of Marc Brown reading Arthur's New Puppy, he states that one of his favorite episodes is "D.W. the Copycat" and says that he hopes kids do not imitate their siblings like D.W. He describes D.W. as "triply lethal" based on his three younger sisters. I think he did intend for D.W. to be annoying, even if it took until season 2 to realize it.

    • Uhh... you do realize that this user (Marc Brown)'s account could just be a faker / poser. In fact, there was even a discussion on here back in the day which was about whether or not this was the real Marc Brown operating this account. Just ask Caesar (DJ MC CJ); he can tell you the story.

      Well, "annoying" is not the same thing as outright hateable.

  • I noticed on Facebook someone posted an idea in the episode contest. It was for a whole series devoted to Arthur's life in high school, D.W. in middle school, and Kate in third grade. I was just wondering if you had considered the idea.

  • Hey, Marc Brown. Looking foward to watching season 16 and beyond. Just wondering, have you ever thought about making Maria (or whatever her name is) a character a main character for a future episode?

    Even though she's been silent up to this point, I've seen episodes where she sometimes sits at Arthur's desk in class or is in close proximity with Arthur and his friends.

    • I can answer that question. The answer is No Maria is not going to be a main character in Season 16 ir beyond it was created but a fanatic fan, who started the rumor in the first place.

    • I knew that info was fake. You can tell by the video. But I meant if the question has been asked at all, because the character isn't purely fake. She's seen at the beginning of "Arthur and the Real Mr. Ratburn". When Francine tells her that they're in Mr. Ratburn's class, the character is shown screaming along with Arthur and his friends.


      Arthur and the Real Mr. Ratburn:

    • Who knows. We are having half of Season 16 airing next month and the rest will air sometime in early 2013. Then sometime in late 2013 we will have Season 17. If what you say does happen I'd expect not only Maria to be involved, but Alex too and maybe Steve as well. We could also see Jenna return to having regular roles just like she did in the beginning of the series since she has been seen with Maria a lot in some episodes. You do make good points though, but this is all just speculation at this time, so nothing is set in stone as of yet. Things can and will change. I mean look what happened with George. He was barely used in earlier episodes. As a matter of fact George never spoke until Season 3. Then when Season 10 came along, George has since been a regular in the episodes.

  • Hi. Marc Brown, I wonder if it is possible for Arthur and his friends to be in a Party or Sports Video Game. Because with the Nintendo Wii, and I would like to play a Arthur video game. As long it is not violent.

    • I really want Arthur Read in the new Super Smash Bros. game. He is the ONLY cartoon character that has never really had a game before! The game is made by Nintendo which features all of Nintendos iconic characters such Super Mario Bros., Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, and even Sonic the Hedgehog in a 4 player crossover beat-em-up. The game is rated T for Teen for Cartoon Violence and Crude Humor. Masahiro Sakurai is the producer of the series (also the producer of the Kirby series) so can you ask him if you can have Arthur in as a playable character? If Spongebob can get in the game, why can't Arthur?

  • I been through this hundreds of ttimes in the past with Cookie Jar, WBGH and PBS, but what state is Elwood City from Arthur is based in. There are a few hints that it is close enough to Washington DC to have a day trip. It is not far away from Crown City because it is located next to the ocean, it is far a way from New York City that allows air travel into New York City. With these guess I thought it is in Deleware but I am not a hundred per cent sure so please can you tell me what state it is in. There is one other note it should not to far south that it has snow.
