I was actually really excited to recap this special. In fact, I mentioned it way back in April 2012 but I was holding off until I got a special reaction GIF and then I swore I already recapped this but I went through my archive to double check and I guess it never happened. Until now.
I should be studying for my midterms but fuck that, I just remembered how great this special is. I wish they’d show it mais often.
Our special opens with Muffy and Francine watching the Backstreet Boys música video for ‘I Want It That Way’. There is a brief moment where we see their “real world” selves...
This is just a guide for everyone in case they've forgotten some of the episodes or just for simply wanting to reminisce.:)
1: "Arthur's Eyes" After waking up one morning, D.W finds pictures of Arthur before he had glasses. He tells her the story of when he first started needing glasses and the teasing that followed.
2: "Francine's Bad Hair Day" School Picture dia is just around the corner, and Muffy wants to make sure Francine has a fotografia to be proud off, unlike last year's photo. However, Francine doesn't seem interested in hair and is in fact interested in a kickball game.

So I’ve been gone for forty days as I gave up Tumblr for Lent and as a special treat, I decided that my returning post should cover “Arthur’s Missing Pal”.
“Arthur’s Missing Pal”, if you don’t know, is a CGI feature length film that aired in 2006 on select PBS stations written por Ken Scarbrough. This movie was *SPOILER ALERT* absolute shit, which is surprising considering Ken...
Man that theme song written por Ziggy Marley hit me like a giant semitruck carrying my childhood. I want to say something really important as this is technically the Arthur pilot and it’s a publicly funded animated series with like, 26 episodes in its first order…
What am I dithering about?
So don’t you notice that in the first episode of a tv series, the plotline is usually “Everyone, meet everyone” where the gang of friends gets together or inducts a new person into their gang. And the the writers are crossing their fingers that enough people give a damn about the show so they can...
It was natal morning and everyone was opening their gifts and DW was so happy about seeing the last gift thinking it was Tina The Talking Tabby. A toy that she would not shut up about. She opened it and it was a pato that could talk instead that could say 5000 things.
DW: Can it say meow?
Jane: Probably not.
DW looked sad.
Jane: Are you upset?
DW: No...........I WANTED TINA THE TALKING TABBY!!!!I WANTED TINA THE TALKING TABBY!!!! (She sobbing) SANTA HOW COULD YOU THIS IS THE WORSE natal EVER!!!!

D.W.: (after Arthur realizes that D.W. has accidentally broken his plane) If it could break the sound barrier, falling out of a window shouldn't be able to break it. Arthur: (angrily) I told you not to touch it. D.W.: You built it all wrong! Did you even read the directions? (Arthur furiously gets on his feet and grits his teeth, but D.W. is too busy talking to be afraid.) D.W.: It didn't fly for one second! It's not my fault if you made a plane that can't fly. Arthur: (lividly) I told you... NOT TO TOUCH IT!!!!!! (He punches D.W., and she hits the ground; D.W. wails in agony as she heads back inside.)...
Arthur Meets Mister Rogers Fred Rogers is visiting Mr. Ratburn's class and staying at Arthur's house. Arthur is afraid of telling anyone the latter because he doesn't want to be called a baby. It's not so bad when they find out.
