ARTHUR Theme - Saturday Morning Acapella | Triforcefilms

In their latest addition to Triforcefilms' "Saturday Morning A Capella" playlist, Mr. Dooves performs a capella cover version of the opening theme to the popular animated series Arthur!:



Original Composer - "Believe in Yourself" by Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers

"Believe in Yourself" lyrics:

Everyday when you're walking down the street,
And everybody that you meet
Has an original point of view

And I say hey! (Hey!)
What a wonderful kind of day
If we could learn to work and play
And get along with each other

You gotta listen to your heart, listen to the beat
Listen to the rhythm, the rhythm of the street
Open up your eyes, open up your ears
Get together and make things better,
By working together!

It's a simple message,
And it comes from the heart
Believe in yourself,
For that's the place to start

And I say hey! (Hey!)
What a wonderful kind of day,
If we could learn to work and play
And get along with each other

Hey! What a wonderful kind of day. Hey!
What a wonderful kind of day

Hey!

Arthur is an animated series that airs daily on PBS Kids. Aimed at viewers between the ages of four and eight, ARTHUR's goal is to help foster an interest in reading and writing, and to encourage positive social skills.

Based on the children's books by Marc Brown, Arthur premiered in 1996 as one of the first ongoing animated programs based on a book series. The show chronicles the adventures of Arthur (an eight-year-old aardvark) through engaging, emotional stories that explore issues faced by real kids. It is a comedy that tells these stories from a kid's point of view without moralizing or talking down. Situations on Arthur develop in realistic ways, and don't always turn out as we -- or Arthur and his friends -- might expect.

Arthur often deals with important issues families face such as asthma, dyslexia, cancer, diabetes, and Asperger syndrome. It also encourages reading and relationships with family and friends by explaining that people have different personalities and interests.

The series also spawned a spin-off series, Postcards from Buster, which followed Arthur's best friend, Buster Baxter.

With 229 episodes, Arthur is the second-longest active running show on PBS Kids, behind only Sesame Street. It is the longest-running children's animated series in the U.S., and the second longest-running animated series in the U.S., behind The Simpsons.

Created by Cookie Jar Group (formerly known as Cinar) and WGBH for PBS, the series airs on PBS Kids in the USA and aired on Nickelodeon UK in the late nineties. Arthur is distributed by 9 Story International Distribution.
