Oh I remember that episode. Deadly tin cans....
Brain did have a lot if interesting info on how your body protects you by raising fever and body temp. DW was funny, she was just interested in getting her brothers bedroom if Arthur got a severe infection and died..

Hey Snowthie.

Look at what the Arthur website has. Some recent episodes from the current season.

I was not fond of the special, it did not make sense to me and the truth of it kept changing like a wooden russian doll within a doll within a doll.

Eeeeeeeeeeh, made it 17 minutes into Haunted Treehouse before I bailed on it during Halloween night. This just felt like a bunch of episodes thrown into one from what I was seeing. Though, compared to Beastly Birthday, the animation looked a bit better than that one; some nice atmosphere at times, though Christ, I cannot get over the poor timing/direction/stiff-as-a-board puppet animation.

It really sucks how two hour-long slots got stuck with mostly bland stories and equally awful scheduling/advertising (though credit's due to Haunted Treehouse getting significantly better advertising compared to the much worse Beastly Birthday). If these are a sign of how much PBS actually cares about the show now, then I am extremely worried if the show actually continues once this deal wraps up.

it feels as if 'Beastly Birthday' and 'Haunted Treehouse' are soiling the names of the previous two specials, which actually contained visible investment on the part of the creative team to produce specials that felt bigger and more emotional than the show - the latter two 'specials', on the other hand, are just cheap marketing tactics demanded by PBS that clearly display the show's creative bankruptcy at its absolute nadir.

PBS, from what I've heard recently, is presumably contemplating cancelling Arthur altogether and replacing it with a new, far worse show, judging by their poor treatment of the show. It's a double-edged sword (similar to my potion dependency) - it would be great to finally see the show be laid to rest with some remaining dignity, but PBS are not likely to invest the extra effort to pull this off, so we'll most likely end with 'Pal, Kate, Carl and Ladonna's Excellent Adventure'.

HONESTLY. Especially when you consider their schedules.
Perfect Christmas was a grand prime-time special; the highest kind you could possibly score for an animated kids' show! An hour-long, musical, heartfelt mini-movie that felt like it gave all the characters we love the right kind of stories and screentime. The latest two just felt like "WE NEED A HALLOWEEN EPISODE AND SOME FANTASY SHIT OUR ADVERTISERS CAN WORK WITH. KIDS DON'T LIKE BORING, REAL STORIES, SO MAKE SURE THEY GET THEIR ATTENTION. GET TO IT."

Considering Thomas & Friends (which was plagued with even WORSE scheduling) is jumping ship for Netflix/Amazon Prime/Hulu for their next season (Big World, Big Adventures), I'd say it's probably a good thing. If your name isn't Wild Kratts, Splash and Bubbles, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, or a new show on the network, you're as good as dead on there.

Thinking about The Last Day and how much of a nice wrap-up that was (from what I heard) just makes these last two seasons and specials feel more and more tacked-on; ESPECIALLY with the promo leading up to the former! How the hell do you top a "Last Day of School" episode/special???

Very disappointed that there was no ghost in Ladonna's rhubarb pah (of lack thereof). This is blasphemy, guys!

Personally, I prefer our own Halloween episode from the Happy Games subforum. After all it was... perfect.

I was referring to 'Arthur's Perfect Halloween', that Happy Games roleplay with Chuck Morris, the first appearance of demented Mary and far too many rhubarb pah references.

Chuck Morris has probably done the spread eagle with every other grown woman in the world. After all, he radiates pure awesomeness to all, so who wouldn't? Of course, we can only imagine how many children he must have fathered across the globe...

They definitely need to do an episode focusing on Mary though. Not for the sake of giving her some disability or Issue of the Week but just the average life of someone who watches Arthur and co.'s adventure but never participates.

Or better yet, they could roll with her insane God complex characterization from the Happy Games roleplays. I would pay good money to see "Arthur vs. the Goddess of the Wool".

If you check the Love Calculator, Ladonna has a surprisingly low compatibility rate with rhubarb pah, particularly in comparison to the 39% compatibility Bud Compson has with his own headgear.

I have some thoughts on the voices.

. What is up with Muffy's voice? Some of her trademark voice is gone, but it's still there somehow.

. I find Bud's voice to be extremely annoying for some reason, but he is still cute nonetheless.

. Arthur and DW are both whiny. What's up with that?

Oops I ranted about a post being removed and its not, it was just on this thread. I'm seriously losing my mind
Apologies everyone 

DW is voiced by male actors as Travis2017 likes to constantly point out ABD Buster sounds like he is already at puberty stage like Binky who is clearly a few grades behind and most likely the tough customers aswell as their voices and appearance are that of 13yr olds so why does Buster sound like his voice is breaking already? He's eight

Which video are you referring to?

That asides, I admit that the voice acting in the show has degraded somewhat over the years. For example, Buster's voice now sounds far higher and less pleasant on the ears than the lower pitches of seasons 1-4 (ironically, this change has enacted as Danny Brochu has aged). Arthur's voice... well, let's just say that I honestly don't believe there will ever be another guy out there able to recapture the magic of Michael Yarmush's Arthur, which is one of the best 'straight man' performances I've ever heard - he made Arthur sound extremely human and layered, with a straight-sounding and fun but big-brother type voice. It's pretty nuanced, and is one of the reasons I wish the show had ended years ago.

Although at least Ladonna and Bud aren't terrible characters and without them, we wouldn't have the staple Slums gags of Bud Compson's hat and rhubarb pah, now would we?
