The animated series follows the title character as he deals with his family, friends, and classmates, and it's a sweet coming-of-age tale. As it turns out, the show is still on the air: since its premiere in 1996, there have been 22 seasons.

10 Grandma Thora Read: ISFJ

We don't know a ton about Grandma Thora Read since her role on the show is that of grandmother to Arthur, Kate, and D.W.

Since she looks after her grandkids on a regular basis, her MBTI would be ISFJ or "Practical Helper." She sounds like she has the same qualities that this personality type does: "They are responsible, loyal, and traditional and enjoy serving the needs of others and providing practical assistance." She is "considerate" and "patient" which are definitely two things that a grandmother needs to be... especially if they are dealing with the very spunky and sometimes poorly behaved D.W.

9 Bitzi Baxter: ENFP

Arthur's friend Buster's mom is Bitzi Baxter, and she would be an ENFP or "Imaginative Motivator." If this is also your MBTI, then this is your Arthur character.

Like many moms, she wants the best things possible for Buster, but she tends to get too concerned about him going off on his own and being independent. ENFPs are "restless" which describes how Bitzi is always thinking about her kid, and they're also "caring" and "expressive." The struggle is always real when parents want to keep kids safe and kids just want to be kids and have fun and play outside all the time. Arthur is always a show that feels so real.

8 David Read: ENTP

David Read is dad to Arthur, D.W. and Kate. If your MBTI is ENTP or "Enterprising Explorer" then you're this Arthur character.

As a cook, he's "creative" and "enterprising." It's really cool that a cartoon character has such an interesting and out-of-the-box job. He can also be "assertive" like this personality type, particularly when he's not pleased with something that Arthur or D.W. has done.

7 Jane Read: ISTP

Jane Read is David's wife and mom to their kids. What's great about this character is that she works as well as raising her family.

As someone who works in the field of accounting, her MBTI would be ISTP or "Logical Pragmatist." This personality type is said to "enjoy learning and perfecting a craft through their patient application of skills" which describes accountants perfectly. Jane has a sunny, fairly chill personality and is often shown smiling, but she's "realistic" and a really good mother.

6 Nigel Ratburn: ISTJ

Nigel Ratburn is a teacher at Arthur's school. In a recent episode, he gets married to Patrick.

Since he's a teacher, his MBTI would be ISTJ or "Responsible Realist." He cares about education and wants to tell it like it is. ISTJs "typically enjoy working within clearly defined systems and processes in a traditional, task-oriented, decisive way" and this describes teachers, who have to listen to the curriculum and follow the rules.

5 Muffy Crosswire: ENTJ

Muffy and Francine are good friends, but it doesn't seem like many of the other characters on this show can relate to Muffy all that much. Her full name is Mary Alice Crosswire and as a rich girl, she's pretty full of herself.

Muffy's MBTi is ENTJ or "Decisive Strategist." She's someone who can get what she wants out of life... even if she has always been given everything that she ever wanted so she doesn't know what it's like to struggle or work hard. She has a lot of "self-confidence" and is a bit "challenging." Sometimes she's not very nice.

4 Francine Alice Frensky: ESFJ

Francine isn't always the kindest, like when she makes fun of Arthur for getting glasses and calls him the not-so-original "four eyes" but otherwise, she's a pleasant character.

If your MBTI is ESFJ or "Supportive Contributor" then your Arthur character is Francine. As a sporty girl, she's comfortable being part of a team and she's both "sociable and outgoing." ESFJs are rule followers who are "helpful" and "organized."

3 Buster Baxter: ENFP

Arthur's best pal Buster Baxter has a few personality traits that fans will remember. He's a total foodie who is all about snacks, and he's not big on doing his homework ahead of time. This is often hilarious to watch, and all kids can relate to wanting to eat snacks constantly.

If your MTBI is ENFP or "Imaginative Motivator" then you're definitely Buster. He's got a "zest for life" and is also "expressive." He does things his own way and figures out solutions, and he also ensures that he has stuff to eat at school which is both funny and adorable.

2 D.W. Read: ESFP

D.W. Read is Arthur's younger sister and, arguably, the most hilarious character on the series. She's gutsy, perhaps overly confident, and often says that her life isn't fair.

She's your typical younger sibling, that's for sure, but she has many interesting traits as well. Her MBTI would be ESFP or "Enthusiastic Improviser." She's "fun loving" and "enthusiastic" and it does seem like her main goal is to have a good time, which is why she's often so incredibly frustrated with her family's rules. She's not always the nicest to her brother Arthur, but that's how it goes with most sibling relationships, so this is often adorable and relatable.

1 Arthur Read: INFP

Are you an INFP or "Thoughful Idealist"? If yes, then Arthur is your character.

The kind-hearted main character of this popular animated series is someone who will "value relationships" and is "compassionate." He's also "curious" since he's a kid and he's growing up. Arthur is also quite "sensitive" like when he gets glasses and can't believe that everyone is being so mean and making fun of him for having them. The show just wouldn't be the same without Arthur, his observations, and his great heart.
