This show is great and is seen in a very positive light as there were little to no criticism about this show. Reasons that there was a lack of criticism on Arthur could be because the show included a wide range of animals of different “races” and each had a personality that was unique to the individual. We had trouble finding any stereotypes regarding social groups, women, race, etc. The point of these show really seems to be on portraying true middle-class family life and that each individual person is unique and faces difficulties now and then. During 1996 when this show was first aired on television, it seemed to be not only groundbreaking in that it depicted a middle-class family as opposed to the wealthy ones often show, but also, it covered a wide-range of “races”, which during this time, did not seem like an obligation. I feel as if this was the first of it’s type.
