An Arthur Thanksgiving

(Rochester, NY) -- Arthur and his family are getting ready for Thanksgiving! Dad’s whipping up his famous turkey dinner extravaganza, the Lakewood elementary kids are preparing for the annual Thanksgiving parade (complete with a giant flying turkey balloon named Gobbler), and Aunt Minnie is coming to spend the holiday with the Reads. But when Pal disappears to go on his own adventure, Arthur puts his plans on hold to search for him. Meanwhile, D.W. starts to think that Aunt Minnie might actually be more of an Aunt “Meanie”. Can family, friends, and the rest of Elwood City get Pal home, rescue a runaway parade balloon, and help D.W. and Aunt Minnie celebrate the best Thanksgiving yet? An Arthur Thanksgiving premieres Monday, November 16, 2020 at 8 a.m. and again at 3 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
