HAVING FUN! ISN'T HARD! WHEN YOU GOT A LIBRARY CARD!

Post by Snowth Poogle on Wed Nov 19, 2014 11:23 pm

"Arthur's Almost-Live-Not-Real Music Festival" is like one of those pivotal episodes of ARTHUR - everybody remembers it, how can you not?









Which song is your favorite? I honestly can't narrow it down to one (though maybe "Leftovers Goulash" is my least favorite); I love the Jekyll Hyde, it really stands out for not recycling older clips to make up the video (and I just love that line, "Made a major speech, told the teach, 'This is all a big bore!'") I love how "Homework" is done in that old 1950s doo-wop style (WHY-AYE-AYE-AYE-AYYEEEEE? I THINK I'M GONNA DIE-AYE-AYYYEEEEEE!)


On a side note, you know what's interesting? Take a look at 2:25 in the first video... they used to do that kind of thing on SESAME STREET all the time in the 70s and 80s - just randomly toss Muppets around in the air in the background of musical numbers... but then they stopped, because apparently kids were trying to immitate that and were hurting themselves.

I liked the library card one mostly for the random dinosaur and rocket bouncing around in the library.

I'd have to say my favorite song from the episode was the "Just a Little Homework Tonight" number. It was such a great choice for a song, plus I'm a sucker for that 1950s doo-wop style the OP mentioned previously.

Definitely "Jekyll Jekyll Hyde."  I love how it transitions and explodes into a Broadway-style show tune.  Top-rate stuff, truly.
