Again-hope no one minds the bump.
S1:"Arthur's Eyes",for being the one that started it all.
S2:"Arthur's Faraway Friend".Very emotional episode,and it was a good guide for kids who have friends that have moved.
S3:"The Ballad of Buster Baxter".Not only does the "Singing Moose" line make it worthwhile, but they got freaking Art Garfunkel for this episode...
S4:"The Contest".Nice little nods to other shows that were popular at the time.
S5:"Arthur's Family Feud".
S6:"Best of the Nest".Great little plot twist at the end.
S7:Tie between "Elwood City Turns 100!" and "April 9th".They are the Magnum Opuses of Arthur.
S8:"Bitzi's Breakup".
S9:"Castles in the Sky".Nice background story for the Treehouse.
S10:"Happy Anniversary".
S11:"Swept Away".
S12:"The Frensky Family Fiasco".
S13:"The Great MacGrady".
S14:"The Agent of Change".
S15:None.Awful season all around that needs to be put out of rotation.
S16:"The Last Tough Customer".
S17:"Framed!".
S18:So far "The Case of the Girl with the Long Face"...

Nice to know I'm not alone on that one.  For a while, I was beginning to think it was an episode only a Village Idiot could truly appreciate...jocolor

I don't really dislike "Arthur's Big Hit," at all, but like many others, the thing that really irks me about the episode is the fact that D.W. faces no consequences for her own actions, and all the punishment is heaped on Arthur.

I can see how some may find "Arthur's Bit Hit" frustrating.  My appreciation for it stems partially from its absurdity...in much the same way that I'm able to appreciate the thought of Pickles getting run down and crushed under the wheels of a slow-moving ice cream truck. clown

On that note, I honestly can't say that I dislike any of the Arthur episodes.  There are just some that I adore a bit less than others.

Best Arthur episodes

Post by FrenskyStar on Sun Jan 25, 2015 5:43 pm

Guys, facing facts, I'm a total noob when it comes to Arthur. I've seen some episodes, but not even NEARLY all of them. But I know Arthur's a pretty great show from those ones I have seen, with its consistent quality.

While I've got some free time, I really want to see the best of what this show has to offer!

What are your favorite Arthur episodes?

Hey FrenskyStar, I moved your post into this thread, which I believe will serve as a good reference for episode recommendations for you.

Everybody else, still feel free to discuss your favorite episodes too!

Once again, welcome aboard!  Smile

Good idea including an Honorable Mentions section, too.  There are so many other great episodes throughout the series, I had a hard time picking just one for each Season (especially Season 1).

Yeah Season 1 had so many episodes in it including a lot of good ones so it would definitely be one of the hardest to choose one from. Though for me Seasons 4-7 were the most difficult I think.

Haven't seen enough of the later seasons, but I can leave my favorites for the first seven:

1: Arthur's Cousin Catastrophe. They pull every funny joke they can out of this scenario and it all culminates in a heartwarming ending.
2: Arthur's Faraway Friend. It really hits home especially if you've had to go through a friend moving away, and it's handled with a lot of tact.
3: Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival. No explanation needed.
4: The Contest. A great homage to many other not-very-kid-friendly shows that works quite well. As a bonus, I also like their teenage designs at the end.
5: The Lousy Week. This one only barely makes it due to being a fairly weak season, but I thought this one was cleverly done by having the head lice represented as an army.
6: Best of the Nest. It's amazing how such a weak season can have such an intriguing premiere, but it did. The ending especially makes this worth watching.
7: April 9th. Again, no description needed.

Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival probably would have at least made my honorable mentions list if two of the videos weren't made from old clips.

Well, considering music videos are already generally out of the show's budget, I could forgive it. Plus the songs were super catchy anyway.

Season 1: Arthur's Almost Boring Day. I'm a Poet is 2
Season 2: Draw (controversial), Cat Saver is 2.
Season 3: Binky Rules, Clarissa is Cracked gets 2
Season 4: The Blizzard, Prove it is 2
Season 5: You are Arthur
Season 6: Boy who Cried Comet (my nomination for most underrated episode)
Season 7: Elwood City turns 100 (Best episdoe of the series)
Season 8: Tales from the Crib
Season 9: Castles in the Sky
Season 10: Happy Anniversary tops a great season
Season 11: Phony Fern, Arthur Sells Out is 2
Season 12:Room to Ride, War of the Worms is 2
Season 13: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Tibble. Ironically Fern gets 4 major appearances and the Tibble episode is clearly the best of the season. It is their best appearence.
Season 14: Long Road Home, which overcame DW, Queen of the Comeback, and Grotesquely Grim Bunny.
Season 15: Trouble With Trophies. Still only an average episode at best.
Season 16: Also had only one good episode, Buster's Book Battle. Defying the AR system alone was wonderful. It restored my faith in Arthur after seeing So Funny I forgot to Laugh/Best Day Ever
Season 17: Crime and Consequences eating out the Director's Cut
Season 18: Case of the Girl with the Long Face
Season 19: Buster Isn't Buying it.

What are your favorite Arthur episodes?

this one is pretty cool

Its only rock n roll. This is from the book but the backstreet boys are in it which at the time was cute....AT THE TIME.
Still it showcases the talents of the Characters like Molly and Francine

The Agent of Change
honestly the best episode ever written. Empowering and fun. Its also got Molly and Francine in it so I cannot complain since they are my two favorites alongside George but...its got a great message.

Square Dance hinted romance xxx between Arthur x Francine even though it ends when Arthur says "lets never let a silly little thing like love get between us" blah blah blah, they don't mean it.

Now lets talk to some kids
I love it. The kids all get interviewed, well the main characters, its funny too. It ends with an old married couple Arthur X francine Very Happy Very Happy
Watching a video tape so you know its an old episode since the future apparently still has VCR players. They talk about Buster and what became of him....welll its left open
