If anything, I would like to see a spinoff involving D.W. and her friends/classmates. The series already feels kind of divided between Arthur and his friends and D.W. and her friends. Splitting into two separate series would be the most sensible way to go, I'd think. The D.W. series could be geared towards the preschool-age viewers while the Arthur series will still be for the tween-and-older crowd.

...I'm getting way off subject here, so I'll stop.
Half of us know somebody who would just absolutely blow his brains out if a spin-off was made based off the episode "In My Africa".

So... that's what the something big about to happen was? Reaching a million likes or whatever on Facebook?

Yeah, I'm going to go back to my life now.

What it could be is monumental at this point. It could be just about anything including and bear with me on this another spin off revolving around another character.

Actually that idea doesn't sound half bad. If the idea is considered I just hope it doesn't compete with other shows that are aimed at preschool children.

No...you didn't read the link well enough...we're only talking about the very bottom of the article, at the tail end, where it says that on Facebook, fans will be receiving a special announcement during the holiday season...I'm sourcing where this info came from as some users didn't know where the big thing thing was coming from.

This is apparently the special. This announcement came from Facebook.

http://www.facebook.com/PBSArthur

I'm excited to announce that my one-hour special, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas," will be airing on PBS KIDS this holiday season (check your local listings). You'll have multiple chances to watch, including a special primetime broadcast on Sunday, December 16th!

Celebrate and help a great cause by sharing this fun holiday eCard with your friends and family!

https://www.facebook.com/PBSArthur/app_273592132743668

For every 50 eCards shared, now through December 31, 2012, WGBH will donate 1 Arthur plush doll to a Boston-area hospital (up to a maximum of 50 dolls).

I personally think what they are doing with Arthur's Perfect Christmas and using it to donate plush dolls to a hospital is pretty good if you ask me.

A alternate version of Arthur where his dad is in the mafia. That first person shooter could work, but I can see a R-rated Arthur film.
