Yes, this IS a perfect movie!

Arthur's Perfect Christmas is an hour-long Arthur special that first aired on November 23, 2000. It has since been released on home videos.

Summary

As the residents of Elwood City get ready for Christmas, Hanukkah , Kwanzaa, and even "Baxter Day," they all want their holiday celebrations to be perfect—but just what does that mean?

Why It Rocks

  1. Creative plot.
  2. Great voice acting.
  3. Arthur, his family (with the exception of D.W.) and his friends are great characters as usual.
  4. "Boogie Woogie Christmas" is a memorable song.
  5. "Baxter Day" was also a creative idea.
  6. George's family is revealed to be Swedish and they celebrate Saint Lucia Day.
  7. Good ending, despite Arthur getting annoyed by D.W.'s new toy.

Bad Qualities

  1. D.W. throwing a tantrum just because she didn't get Tina The Talking Tabby is annoying.
  2. Muffy betrayed Francine's religion by saying Hanukkah isn't as important as Christmas. She at least apologizes at the end and tries to understand Hanukkah.
  3. Some lines were cut in the later airings, but they can still be heard in the 2002 DVD.
  4. Bathroom humor was used for the first time in Arthur.

Trivia

  • This is the last production in which Michael Yarmush voiced Arthur.
