PBS Distribution today announced the release of “Arthur: Brothers and Sisters” on DVD. Join Arthur, his family and friends for eight stories of the hit PBS KIDS series about the joys – and challenges – of having a brother or sister. From D.W. copying her big brother’s every move, to the Tibble twins discovering that Tommy is two whole minutes older than Timmy, this DVD features loads of sibling fun.
“Arthur: Brothers and Sisters” will be available on DVD July 18, 2017. The DVD run time is approximately 108 minutes and its SRP is $6.99. The program will also be available for digital download. Descriptions of the episodes included on the DVD are listed below.
“D.W. the Copycat”
Yet another personality change for D.W., who’s decided that from now on, she’ll be just like Arthur. She’ll walk like him, talk like him, follow him wherever he goes. How can Arthur persuade D.W. that the world is only big enough for one Arthur?
Arthur is not too sure he’s ready for a new baby in the house. What do babies do besides cry..crY ..cRY…CRY! As the months fly by, Arthur imagines life with the new baby. Some of his fears seem to ring true: baby Kate doesn’t like him. Or does she?
Living with a baby is no picnic. No one ever told D.W. that babies cried all the time, and threw up on your clothes, and got all the attention. Just how long will Baby Kate be hanging around, anyway? And who would even miss D.W. if she ran away to Button Island?
“Arthur’s First Sleepover”
Have you ever been afraid of the dark? Despite D.W.’s threat of aliens, Arthur sets his tent for his first sleepover. D.W.’s mad that she can’t be a part of the sleepover, but she’ll have some fun of her own – with the help of alien lights. But, who will have the last joke: Arthur and his friends, D.W., or the aliens?
Francine likes bats and lizards, while Catherine’s taste runs to lace. Normally, it’s fun to be different, but not if you’re two sisters sharing the same room. Space gets very tight at the Frensky’s, when this odd couple decides they’ve had enough togetherness.
“Sue Ellen’s Little Sister”
Arthur and Francine would love to lend their sisters to Sue Ellen, who’s sick of being an only child. But Sue Ellen realizes you should be careful what you wish for, after her quest for the perfect sibling leads her to…D.W.
Power shifts in the Tibble household when the twins find out Tommy is two minutes older than Timmy. Frustrated in his new role, Timmy enlists the help of an expert older brother tamer: D.W.!
“The Pageant Pickle”
School is almost out and Arthur can hardly wait for those lazy summer days by Muffy’s pool. Nothing could ruin such a happy time of year…except maybe – D.W.’s Spring Pageant!
