Ruff paid a visit this week to check out WGBH’s studio workshops. He offered to help but, after a previous incident with a small chair that needed a minor repair, we don’t let him near power tools, marshmallows, glue, dynamite, or, for that matter, cattle.

Arthur Hits 20

screen-shot-2016-10-08-at-8-07-37-am

Arthur’s Top 20 celebrates 20 years of ARTHUR being on the air.

This collection of minigames reaches deep into the vaults of ARTHUR lore. Henry Skreever books! The lucky pencil! Thelma the singing bass! Not to mention, Yamlet! (Ah, we knew you well…) These and many other classic items are featured in a variety of simple-yet-challenging games to test a player’s reflexes, logic — and nostalgia.

The first eight minigames are up, with six more launching next Friday, and six more the following Friday, for a total of — you guessed it — 20 mini games.

So visit the site, play the game, test your skills (with games featuring the green potato chip, Sharky, Wally, and more) and enjoy saying, “Oh, yeah, I remember that!”

Quack in the Community

On September 24, 2016, WGBH co-hosted an event called “Ready to Learn: Family Tech Day” with Tech Goes Home, Boston Public Schools Adult Learning Center, and English for New Bostonians.  

At the event, families could complete hands-on or digital activities about literacy and science, get information about technology and local resources, and take photos with WGBH characters Peep, Quack, and Curious George.

This event was made possible by the generous support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
