Arthur: Longest-running children's animated series to end after 25 years

The beloved children's cartoon Arthur will end after its 25th season, the show’s executive producer Carol Greenwald has announced.

After initially airing in 1996, the show will draw to a close in 2022.

In a statement, Ms Greenwald said: "Arthur is the longest-running kids animated series in history and is known for teaching kindness, empathy and inclusion through many groundbreaking moments."

The show follows an eight-year-old aardvark as he navigates life with his family, his friends and life at school.

It has won four Emmys and has featured characters from different cultures, classes and backgrounds.
