Arthur WHEN CARL MET GEORGE/D.W. SWIMS WITH THE FISHES

Friday, January 24 at 7 am on WXXI-TV
Saturday, January 25 at 8 am on WXXI-CREATE 

When Carl Met George – George is excited about spending time with his new friend, Carl, who seems to know all kind of cool facts about trains and about... well lots of things! Then George learns that Carl has Asperger's Syndrome - a form of autism that makes Carl see the world differently than most people. Can George and Carl remain good friends - and perhaps even learn from each other? 


D.W. Swims with the Fishes – 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?

Arthur PRUNELLA SEES THE LIGHT/RETURN OF THE SNOWBALL

Sunday, January 26 at 9 am on WXXI-TV
Monday, January 27 at 8 pm on WXXI-CREATE 

Prunella Sees the Light- To make everything perfect for her sleepover with Marina, Prunella happily styles her room to resemble a "Henry Skreever" book.  But then she panics - since Marina is blind, will decorations she can't even see offend her... or worse, make her trip?  Or will Prunella discover that her worries about protecting Marina - and their friendship - are more about Prunella's own perceptions rather than Marina's actual capabilities? 

Return of the Snowball - D.W's snowball reapears, but she must figure out how to keep it away from the thieves in case they  strike again.
