Spring has sprung in Elwood City, and Arthur and his friends are bringing more great content to your viewers–on the air and online–all season long! In April, which is Autism Awareness Month, Arthur is featuring classic – and new episodes – with Carl, a character on the Autism spectrum.

When Carl met George/D.W. Swims with the Fishes  
George is excited about spending time with his new friend, Carl, who loves to draw trains and knows all kinds of cool facts about them! George discovers that Carl has Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism, and that Carl sees the world a bit differently than George and many kids.Despite their differences, George and Carl become great pals – and learn a lot from each other./ D.W. and James enter the pre-school swim meet and recruit their big siblings to coach them.All goes swimmingly until Arthur and Molly start taking their jobs a little too seriously.  Who’s this race about, anyway?

Carl’s Concerto/Too Much of a Good Thing
Carl has agreed to play the accordion for George’s puppet show. But his routines are getting in the way of rehearsals. Now George must decide: keep Carl and risk the show, or replace Carl and risk his friendship? Buster enlists Binky’s help to keep him from gorging on delicious Tuvaluna cookies. Will Buster’s self-control hold…or crumble?
