Above: In "Arthur's Perfect Christmas," D.W. and everyone’s favorite aardvark show children many ways to celebrate the holidays.

Everyone’s favorite aardvark gives kids a new spin on seasonal traditions in his one-hour special, showing children many ways to celebrate “the holidays.” Plans are underway in Elwood City for the best holidays ever as Arthur, D.W., their family and friends make preparations for perfect gifts, perfect parties and perfect family traditions for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and even “Baxter Day” (Buster and his mom’s special celebration). The only problem is, just like in real life, perfection is hard to attain and things start to fall apart.

Visit Arthur's website for holiday coloring pages, e-cards, a holiday song video and more activities.
