WGBH delays show featuring lesbians
Advertisements [?]
WGBH-TV (Channel 2) has pushed back airing an episode of its new ''Arthur" spinoff ''Postcards From Buster" because the episode features a lesbian couple and their three children.


''Postcards From Buster" airs weekdays at 5:30 p.m. The series -- which is part animated and part live-action -- focuses on an 8-year-old rabbit who travels around the country with his father, an airplane pilot. In each episode, Buster visits with children and asks questions about their way of life. Real-life children are featured in the live-action segments while Buster's voice is heard in the background.

Since it launched last year, ''Postcards From Buster" has profiled several different types of families, including children who live with their grandparents. The show has also focused on children from a variety of religious backgrounds, including Muslims, Mormons, and evangelical Christians.

''The show's goal is to reflect the lives of American kids," said Hopkins. ''It's not meant to be political." /
