The popular WGBH-produced animated kids’ show Arthur gets inspired by Downton Abbey from WGBH’s Masterpiece!
Everyone’s favorite aardvark and his friends discover the secrets and stories that their families hold. In the drama-filled Fountain Abbey, Muffy finds herself absolutely devastated when she learns her great-great grandmother, Mary Alice, wasn’t royalty, but a common maid (oh, the indignity!) But reading Mary Alice's diary, Muffy is transported back in time to the famous English estate where her ancestor worked, and there she discovers the surprising story behind her humble roots.
