The Big Arvo (originally titled The Big Breakfast) is an Australian television series that was broadcast on the Seven Network from 1999 until 2005. It starred four hosts, who hosted the show in a large model bus. They had segments such as "cool job" and "dare" to amuse younger viewers and to teach viewers who had outgrown Play School. The show appeared in K-Zone magazine to celebrate 500 episodes. It had begun in a morning timeslot under the name of The Big Breakfast, before moving to the afternoon to make way for AMV: All Music Video and Sunrise.
