Copied and pasted.


Now as for "The Best Day Ever", while I generally like flashback episodes and clip shows, I was disappointed with this one, mostly because almost all of the dialogue in the flashbacks were redubbed by the new voice actors... I guess that's to avoid confusing kids watching as to why their voices would sound different in the same episode... and I haven't paid too much attention to the credits, but is Tabitha St. Germain voicing George this season? Not only did George sound like a girl, but Wally sounds like Martha (of MARTHA SPEAKS). Good entry overall, but again, the redubbing of the flashbacks lost some points with me.

I DID have myself having a "fangasm", as Sarge puts it, when watching Binky's flashback (okay, I admit, I never watched the actual episode), because when Binky was trying to do the Monkey Face for Mei Lin in the restaurant before Arthur showed up, I heard the exact same music that's been used on COURAGE THE COWARDLY DOG for Di Lung (the Asian punk who would yell, "Watch where you're goin' ya foo!")... I guess it must be production music or something.

Watching "Best Day Ever," I found myself wondering if it was planned as a possible final episode just in case the show wasn't renewed for additional seasons.  Though it would have been a bit understated for a series finale, the way it looks back and reminisces about various moments throughout the show's entire run made it feel that way.  If it was planned out during a period of uncertainty regarding the show's future, the fact that it isn't too blatant about being a finale also figures.

I was a bit surprised (though not unpleasantly) that Sue Ellen and George were featured for flashback sequences instead of more prominent regulars like Francine and Muffy.

Interestingly, I remember feeling the same way back when "April 9th" first aired. . . . I don't know, there was just something about the plot, the story structure, the dialogue, and everything else that just made it feel like the end - particularly when we transition from Buster playing the accordian to Sue Ellen writing an entry in her new journal. For some reason, to me, that all just screamed finale.

True, true.  I anticipate Shelter From the Storm will likely give off the same feel.
