In my personal opinion:
Season 1 : Either Arthur: World's Greatest Gleeper (from memory) or
Season 2: Arthur's Mystery Envelope (Season 2 has too many good episodes, in all honesty)
Season 3: Arthur Goes Crosswire
Season 4: Arthur's Big Hit
Season 5: I'll go with 'The Big Dig' on this one.
Season 6: For Whom the Bells Toll is the poorest quality in some cases (they went too far with D.W PRETENDING to have lost her voice later on). Otherwise, I got nothing here.
Season 7: Ants in Arthur's Pants or To Tibble the Truth (although the moral was good)
Season 8: Vomitrocious or Desperately Seeking Stanley
Season 9: Binky Goes Nuts
Season 10: The Secret About Secrets
Season 11: Buster Gets Real or 'Baby Kate and the Imaginary Mystery'
Season 12: On This Sport, or 'Never, Never, Never'
Season 13: MacFrensky
Season 14: In My Africa
Season 15: Best Enemies/ Through the Looking Glasses
Season 16: So Funny I Forgot to Laugh
Season 17: Molina's Mulligan
Season 18: Surprise! (the ending kills it for me) or Best Wishes
Season 19: One Ornery Critter so far
Please note that these are my opinions. Every episode has a redeeming factor though, despite how bad it may be.

I just saw "Besties" and I feel very safe thinking it will be the worst episode of season 19.

After going through the entire series I would like to update my list.
I will not count the Pal and Kate episodes, as I now skip them.
S1- Misfortune Teller: I never liked Prunella, and I found this to be a dumb plot
S2- DW Goes to Washington is narrowly beaten by DW's Very Bad Mood
S3- Attack of the Turbo Tibbles: (only because season 3 has no bad episodes and this one is just okay).
S4- Arthur's Big Hit (I do not hate it, just dislike it.)
S5- Arthur's Perfect Christmas
S6- Prunella's Special Edition: Great season and I already disqualified the one everyone is putting for it. It relies too much on Potter references.
S7- Cast Away: The crying sounded so fake, and it was unpleasent to keep on watching.
S8- Vomitrocious: It nearly put me to sleep. At the time it is the worst episode of the series.
S9- A is for Angry. It had Francine and Muffy at their worst and it is really bad on a rewatch
S10- World Girls. A topic I could not relate to. Sue Ellen's new actor gave an emotionless performance.
S11- Big Brother Binky: Promised to add more to the show, but Mei Lin is hardly seen again. I actually really liked Strangers on a Train. Still a very good episode from a great season.
S12- Match Maker Match Breaker: Dull, dull, and dull episode.
S13- A lot of Fern episodes, which is always good but also many bad episodes. The worst is the worst episode of the first fifteen seasons. "When Carl Met George." How do I start in expressing my hate for this episode. Perhaps with that when I was told by my family I hhad Aspergers all I could think was "Wasn't that the disease in the really boring and terrible episode of Arthur." All they did was make a stereotypicsal character that I related to slightly less than a table. The writers forgot that a disease does not make a character, but a character makes a representation of a disease. If I do not move on quick I will be here all day.
S14- In My Africa over "The Wheel Deal."
S15- Fifteen is the worst. Many plots that had little to do with each other. Whistling in the Wind is second. It makes a big deal out of nothing.
S16- Best Day Ever. It gives flashbacks in a less fun way than the original episodes. There is no point in watching it, thus it is the worst episode of the series.
S17- Dog's Best Friend.
S18- Surprise, but still a fine episode.
S19- Besties

I don't know one from every season but here are my least favorites:

More! - What can I say about this? Everything went wrong and bad in this episode. Yes, they can't always smile, but jeez! This was like watching a compilation of everyone having a bad day!
It Came From Beyond - I honestly couldn't make heads or tails of what was going on here.
So Funny I Forgot To Laugh - No. Just no.
First off, we've had the bullying theme before, and why apply it to Arthur of all characters? This was in the wake of the airing of "The Last Tough Customer" so did they really think there were no more bullies and now Arthur has to suffice? Couldn't they at least have made a one-off racist character that bullies Sue Ellen and at the same time teaches kids that racism is wrong? But even that sounds wrong and controversial.

Second - the understatement of the 2010s - Arthur acts completely out of character in this episode. I can kind of understand that he teases Sue Ellen, but making lame sheepdog puns (it doesn't even make her look like a sheepdog, more like Sue Ellen Goes 80s) going as far as humiliating her via email and taping that picture of her onto her locker? Even the Tough Customers knew their borders and wouldn't have gone that far.

As if this wasn't enough, we also get an online comic based off this episode of all episodes. In the end you get three options for endings, one of them being that Arthur continues teasing Sue Ellen. What Arthur fan in their right mind would choose such an ending? I saw that ending screen, and believe me, it's heartbreaking, sad and completely unrealistic. You don't wanna see it. Don't pick the other one either; I haven't seen it but I don't wanna know what it is. Arthur apologizing and making up with Sue Ellen is the only true ending to this disgrace to the series.

My current opinions are as follows:

Season 1: Arthur's Lost Dog or Arthur's Chicken Pox. Both weak, childish episodes.
Season 2: D.W's Very Bad Mood. Still enjoy it, but D.W's behaviour here was a little too extreme even by her glorious Fallon-era standards.
Season 3: Arthur Goes Crosswire. In a season where nearly every episode is great, this one is simply sort of okay. Despite this, I love Melissa Altro's delivery of 'vomitrocious!' and wish Muffy could say it more frequently (the fact she didn't during the episode of the same name was vomitrocious! The writers were so rude!).
Season 4: Arthur's Big Hit structurally, due to its broken moral, however I gotta agree with A Lotta Moms on this one - the episode is truly absurd, and it's fun to bask in its incoherence (and Michael Yarmush's hammy delivery of 'I TOLD YOU NOT TO TOUCH IT!'). For pure enjoyment value though, I'll go with Hide and Snake, which had literally nothing interesting to offer.
Season 5: The Cave, being overly clichéd and dull. The Big Dig is a close second though. Writing an intentionally boring episode does not make the final product any less dull, or its dullness any less justified (imagine 'hey, I wrote this episode to be terrible on purpose!').
Season 6: More! or For Whom the Bell Tolls - both prime examples of D.W at her absolute worst. I actually sort of liked 'The Secret Life of Dogs and Babies', believe it or not.
Season 7: Is There a Doctor in the House? Unless you take the whole 'Unfaithful Jane' theory into account, this episode is a slog. Ants in Arthur's Pants is a close second though for its unwarranted deception of innocent viewers (the title of this episode is the equivalent to titling Arthur's Big Hit 'D.W Down and Out', except even worse).
Season 8: Vomitrocious! Did we need a episode about this topic, told in a disgusting/mean-spirited way, with Muffy not even stating the title in her wonderfully hammy way? In terms of enjoyment though, I consider Desparately Seeking Stanley a depressing march.
Season 9: Binky Goes Nuts. There was no reason for Binky to gain a peanut allergy, nor was there any need for the episode to spiral into a heavy-handed moral anvil on allergies. Not to mention that Binky's anaphylaxis is virtually never referenced again, rendering the episode pointless.
Season 10: The Secret About Secrets. The secret about secrets is apparently that they're lame and clichéd, wrapped in a poorly written wasteful narrative, because that's certainly what I garnered here.
Season 11: Buster Gets Real. Our favorite bunneh completely out of character? DIETRICH SMITH YOU JEKYLLIAN MASTERMIND!!!
Season 12: On This Spot... what was I taking about again?
Season 13: Paradise Lost. The only redeeming factor is this episode is the title, which sums up the show's quality by this point perfectly.
Season 14: The Great Lint Rush, completely destroying any realistic integrity the show had left by this point. Buster Baxter and the Letter from the Sea is a close second though, due to how whitewashed and heavy-handed the episode feels.
Season 15: The entire season, save for maybe Muffy's Classy Classics Club. Come back, Joe Fallon! Please?
Season 16: So Funny I Forgot to Laugh, which is such a clichéd and obvious choice that it's so funny...even if I forgot to laugh.
Season 17: All Thumbs. Everyone's favorite bunneh acting out of character again? DIETRICH SMITH YOU ENIGMATIC DIABOLUS!!!
Season 18: Best Wishes. Nothing new to say - it's a dull ripoff of numerous previous episodes.
Season 19: One Ornery Critter. You think... this plot might have been done before in numerous other shows... in a better way? You say it has? Why sweet petunia!
Season 20: Not seen enough episodes yet.

I don't have a lot of least favorites, but my least one would have to be the episode from Season 3 (even my mother remembers this) where the band Värttinä guest star as BINKY.

I cannot be the only one who thought that season 21s episode about the fricking dogs talking with Kate during the female soccer game was just awful. Invasion of the soccer fans
I mean...WTF was that? A perfect episode to use the now sports centric Francine since its a famous female soccer team but nope the writers must've underslept or taken something and thought "duh let's add the reads and make it about dogs" "Wait, Alberto plays soccer, his family can watch too, oh and I noticed Jane was absent? Thora was there though. I guess Jane was busy getting busy and Francine didn't want to watch it? Which seems strange, the episode that followed I'll admit I didn't watch past the first ten seconds. The talking baby/animal intro was enough. 

So aside from Muffys awful bakesale and trip to Italy in Muffy misses out which was watchable just a pain in the ass like Muffy, I'd say .Invasion or Pal and the big itch. Were the worst.
The Arthur takes a stand episode which followed Muffys self serving crap Muffy misses out, ( clearly showed Francine had outgrown her and Buster and Arthur didn't need her or were even in iy aside from Bustsr due to his love of food) was actually a season 21 redeeming episode. John Lewis was a great guy in American history and I think it was awesome they brought up the civil rights movement, well touched on it.
So episode 7a and 7b *shudder* 
Why bother making another OTT competeive episode like Francine and the soccer spy? When the writers could have used her as a positive role model for girls who want to play professional  soccer when they're older in Invasion of the soccer fans?


I see why people aren't as fond of the newer seasons. 
The golden episodes are gone, with my childhood and teens

I was expecting the episode to be about insane sports-obsessed aliens invading Elwood City and Arthur and co. sending Francine in to impersonate one of them to infiltrate their invasion effort, eventually learning that life isn't entirely about sports. What a great comeback episode for Francine that could've been...

But nope, instead we get Mary's two minions in two nonsensical and ultimately nonexistent plots. The writers seem to be scraping the bottom of the barrel now. ADD CHUCK MORRIS IN SEASON 22, GUYS.

It really would but would it be appropriate for Arthur?
Hey Arnold had an episode on the Vietnam war...well Mr Hyun was reunited with his daughter who he had adopted by an american GI to the orphanage in the States and they finally met at Christmas after 19 yrs... The feels. I cried so hard.
Wanda's story would be good though
