Postcards from Buster

Postcard from Buster

POSTCARDS FROM BUSTER is funded in part by a Ready To Learn cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Education through PBS.

Postcards from Buster is an innovative blend of animation and live action starring Arthur's best friend, Buster. Buster's dad, a pilot, is flying Los Viajeros, a rock group, on a North American tour and he's invited Buster to come along. Buster's mom has given him a video camera so he can record his new friendships and discoveries and send "video postcards" back to his pals in Elwood City.

For children 6 to 8 years old.

Series Goals

  • Build awareness and appreciation of the many cultures in America.

Helping Kids Prepare for School

As Buster meets new people and explores new places, he models the language young English learners need in order to find their way around, make new friends, learn more about other people's lives, interests, and cultures, and share information about themselves.
