WGBH BOSTON VIDEO AND ARTHUR SPOTLIGHT YOUTH HEALTH ISSUES WITH THE DVD DEBUT OF BINKY GOES NUTS
Arthur and His Friends Help Kids Understand
Nut Allergies and the Need for Exercise
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
BOSTON (February 16, 2007) — WGBH Boston Video will debut Binky Goes Nuts on DVD April 24, 2007. Featuring four stories from the Emmy Award-winning Arthur series, this special DVD offers kids, parents, and teachers insights into important health issues for kids, including nut allergies and the benefits of exercise.
Binky Goes Nuts
When Binky discovers that he’s allergic to peanuts, he has so many questions: Will he be forced to live without Chinese food? Will he ever again be able to eat with his friends? And most importantly, will his Mom ever calm down? Binky learns that the best way not to go nuts is to be well informed and to understand his allergy.
Breezy Listening Blues
Much to his horror, Brain gets a “B-” on a test. That’s only one grade above a C! What caused this disaster? Could it be the new “Breezy Listening” background music playing at the Ice Cream Shop? Brain is determined to get to the bottom of this before he loses what left of his I.Q.
Arthur Weighs In
When Arthur doesn’t fit into his costume for the play, he’s shocked to learn that he’s gotten “husky-sized.” Now he’s serious about getting in shape. Will he turn to an all-protein diet? Eat only herbs and berries? Or will he try something really radical…exercise?!
The Law of the Jungle Gym
Muffy found the perfect place to take pictures with her new digital camera: the jungle gym. Unfortunately, it’s Tough Customer territory, and Molly wants to bully Muffy right out of her own studio. But Crosswires doe not compromise! Or…do they?
