Friday, November 7 at 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Postcards From Buster

(Rochester, NY) Postcards From Buster is a spin-off of the popular PBS children’s series Arthur. Postcards From Buster presents a unique blend of animation with live-action documentary footage and stars Arthur’s best friend, eight-year-old Buster, a bunny. Each episode follows the adventures of curious filmmaker Buster as he travels to North American locations and meets real kids and their families from around the world. Targeting children aged six to eight, Postcards From Buster has two key educational goals: to build awareness and appreciation of our nation’s cultural diversity and to support the development of language, literacy, and communication skills among English language learners. All new episodes of Postcards From Buster premiere Fridays at 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV 21 (cable 11) beginning November 7.

In Postcards From Buster, Buster joins his dad, an airline pilot who’s flying Los Viajeros, a rock group, on their North American tour. 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. In each episode, Postcards From Buster invites viewers into the lives of new friends and neighbors Buster meets in communities, large and small, portraying and celebrating the varied cultures and voices of today’s American children and families.
