Season 1: Tie between Arthur's Family Vacation (the most brutally realistic the show has ever been) and D.W Gets Lost (the plot is fun and the public announcement system is a far better character than Carl Gold).
Season 2: A tough decision, but I'll go with Buster Hits the Books for its memorable parodies of well-known literary works (remember when the show used to actually be about reading?) with either D.W's Deer Friend (that's how to do a heavily moral-centric episode, seasons 9-15) or How the Cookie Crumbles (the plot is weird, but the fun, enjoyable kind of weird. And banana was my idea! Without me, THERE WOULD BE NO BANANA.. sorry, the potion hasn't worn off yet, it seems) as a close second.
Season 3: An even more difficult decision (nearly every episode of the season is great to me). Since I could choose any number of episodes from this season as my favorite, I'll pick Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival (because of course) as my favorite and I'd Rather Read It Myself (a hilarious perfect storm of references to prior D.W episodes) as a close second.
Season 4: That's a Baby Show! (probably the most hilarious episode of the show). The Contest is a close second though, due to its humorous and well-executed references to other TV contemporaries of the time and its hilariously metatextual nods to common criticisms and audience inquiries about the show.
Season 5: You Are Arthur - it's at least an interesting and mold-breaking narrative in an otherwise bland, overly moral-driven season.
Season 6: Best of the Nest - an obvious choice, but it's still a compelling and entertaining episode in an unmemorable season. Not to mention the episode is a great instructional tract on the course of action kids should take when encountering dangerous animals - just do the hokey-pokey! Worked for me when someone tried to perform it to deter me from stealing second base again.
Season 7: Tie between Elwood City Turns 100! and April 9th. Do I honestly have to explain why?
Season 8: Bleep. At least it tries to break the mold at a time the show was beginning to become more safe and stagnant.
Season 9: Arthur Makes Waves. Anyone lacking any kind of positive outlook on this episode will be entering a world of pain.
Season 10: Happy Anniversary. Another obvious choice for obvious reasons.
Season 11: Probably Strangers on a Train, although calling that episode 'great' is still a stretch (let's just say I wasn't all that impressed with the season).
Season 12: War of the Worms. At least this episode had actual narrative events, unlike many of this season's work.
Season 13: The Great MacGrady. Do I have to explain? I also enjoy Prunella and the Haunted Locker - it has atmosphere, and seems to understand how to use it.
Season 14: Newsflash, it's the Agent of Change (even if the actual short we saw was presumably incomplete - we as the audience saw more footage animated for it than was included in the finished short).
Season 15: I honestly cannot choose a good episode from this awful season, although Muffy's Classy Classics Club is fairly okay.
Season 16: The Last Tough Customer. A wonderful conclusion to Molly's character arc, landing it as one of only three Season 16 episodes I would be willing to re-watch (the other two being Night of the Tibble and Buster's Book Battle).
Season 17: Caught in the Crosswires. A great delve into Muffy and Bailey's character and the dynamic between them.
Season 18: I'll pick Fountain Abbey (an unusual choice, I admit, but I wasn't impressed with The Tarby Tumbler that much) due to its interesting concept.
Season 19: Maria Speaks. Because Maria. What else do I have to say?
Season 20: Not seen enough episodes yet.

The Cherry Tree is an homage to Chekov's Cherry Orchard. The episode was written by Leah Ryan, a wonderful playwright who, tragically, die a year later of leukemia. She also co-wrote the Arthur cancer special, where Mrs. MacGrady gets sick....

Season 21: The Princess Problem. Among all the dull (sub)standard S16+ Arthur episodes, this one genuinely felt like it had a lot of heart put into it and like a classic episode!

It is weird that Muffy ranked an episode where she basically harasses Francine on the internet for the majority of its runtime over an episode where she actually learns to accept others' ideas and work to create a solid final product. It's a little... morally questionable, considering what this implies about Muffy (although you could simply interpret MatBBB as a test of Muffy and Francine's friendship, which would cast a more positive light on it).

I wonder if 'Love Notes for Muffy' was her highest-ranked of season 2 because Brain didn't win in the end. She did claim that she was never forgiving the Brain for the 'opening theme' incident in one of her posts, correct?

It implies Muffy dislikes other people accepting others and showing they have a heart. She's jealous. She also enjoyed that episode where Brain pranked her?
She will never forgive Brain, thats true and she won't ever let Ladonna stop paying for that dress...even though she's a millionaire.

After having marathoned a number of Season 21 episodes, I agree with you here, although I would argue that the episode was more similar in tone and structure to an episode from seasons 7-8 and less so an episode from the Fallon era (despite some elements being pulled straight out of a season 3 D.W episode, such as 'Princess Platoon' being a Fallon-esque (to an extent) parody of saccharine princess shows akin to the Love Ducks being a Teletubbies parody), with a solid moral, some interesting plot points and strong characterization for Lydia.

The only two other episodes I would consider for the 'best of Season 21' crown are 'Slink's Special Talent' (a genuinely interesting view into Slink and his life and character outside of being the fourth Tough CustomerConsumer) and 'Take a Hike, Molly' (actually my favorite of the season for presenting a nice conflict while keeping all four Tough... CONSUMERS in character, which allowed for some great chemistry between the four. I also have to applaud the episode for its writing of Molly - it's clear this is set after her development in 'The Last Tough Customer' (where she actually did say 'sorry', by the way) as the episode writes her as slightly unsympathetic towards others but never legitimately jerkish or cruel as she could be prior to season 16).

I had been living in hope that there would be a new episode about George this season but my dreams have been dashed against the rocks.
