Homework Song Arthur Lyrics What A Wonderful Kind Of Day

The show opens with a clip of Arthur and his dog walking down a street. Arthur is an 8-year-old aardvark. He has a round head with small round ears and short brown hair, and he wears glasses.

The scene continues when Arthur jumps into the cover of a book that a little girl reads on her bed. The book is called "Arthur." It makes the girl laugh.

A song plays on as all this takes place.

The lyrics say
EVERY DAY WHEN YOU'RE WALKING DOWN THE STREET EVERYBODY THAT YOU MEET HAS AN ORIGINAL POINT OF VIEW AND I SAY HEY!

Arthur opens the bedroom door and says HEY!

The song goes on, and a bunch of smiling animal faces sing WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY IF WE COULD LEARN TO WORK AND PLAY AND GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER

Now Arthur takes a family picture as his parents, grandparents, sisters, and dog sit on the family couch.

The song keeps playing
YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO YOUR HEART LISTEN TO THE BEAT LISTEN TO THE RHYTHM THE RHYTHM OF THE STREET OPEN UP YOUR EYES OPEN UP YOUR EARS GET TOGETHER AND MAKE THINGS BETTER BY WORKING TOGETHER IT'S A SIMPLE MESSAGE AND IT COMES FROM THE HEART

Arthur looks at the family album. He hugs his mum and jumps out to the city. He sees bikes, cars, and shops. He high-fives a friend that cycles by.

The song goes on
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF FOR THAT'S THE PLACE TO START AND I SAY

Now Arthur falls into a swimming pool and plays with friends.

The song continues
HEY! HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY IF WE COULD LEARN TO WORK AND PLAY AND GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY

Now Arthur's sister closes her "Arthur" book and sees Arthur on the living room TV.

Arthur says HEY, D.W.!

D.W. says HEY!

Arthur says WHOA!
OOF!

Arthur falls backwards and a caption reads "Based on the Arthur adventure books by Marc Brown."

The name of the episode reads "D.W. and the Beastly Birthday. Part 1. Written by Peter K. Hirsch."

[candy clattering]
[cheering]

At D.W.’s birthday party, Bud says HAPPY BIRTHDAY, D.W.!

Tommy says HAPPY BIRTHDAY, D.W.!

Timmy says HAPPY BIRTHDAY, D.W.!

Emily says HAPPY BIRTHDAY, D.W.!
[laughter]

Tommy says WOO HOO!
[deep breath]
[blowing]
[deep breath]
[blowing]
[deep breath]
[blowing]

D.W. blows the candles and says HEY, THIS ISN'T ONE
OF THOSE FUNNY CANDLES THAT
WON'T BLOW OUT, IS IT?
I HATE THOSE.

Tommy says YOU JUST NEED TO
BLOW HARDER... LIKE
THIS.
[big inhale]
[Tommy blows hard]
[splat]

Frosting splatters against D.W.’s face.

D.W. says SO FAR, THIS BIRTHDAY
HAS BEEN A COMPLETE BUST.
IT STARTED WITH THE WEATHER.
ON A GIRL'S FIFTH BIRTHDAY,
IT SHOULD BE SUPER SUNNY WITH
BIG PUFFY CLOUDS.

(music plays)

The sun sings D.W.!!

(music plays)

D.W. says BUT IT SEEMS Mr. SUN
DIDN'T GET THE MESSAGE.
[clap of thunder]
[rain falling]

D.W. says AND HE WASN'T THE ONLY
ONE NOT GETTING MESSAGES.
FOR WEEKS, I'VE BEEN DROPPING
HINTS ABOUT THIS TOY I REALLY
WANTED.

At breakfast, she grabs the paper and says LOOK!
IT'S FLUFF MCGUFFIN THE MAGIC
PUFFIN!
YOU KNOW HE TALKS AND HELPS
TEACH KIDS THE ALPHABET?

Mum says HMM.

(music plays)

Walking by a toy store, D.W. says LOOK!
THERE HE IS AGAIN!

(music plays)

She points at the T.V. and says AND AGAIN!

Arthur says D.W., YOU'RE
BLOCKING THE TV.

(music plays)

D.W. says BOY, THAT PUFFIN SURE
IS CUTE!
AND EDUCATIONAL.

(music plays)
WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO?
SHOUT AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS,
"BUY ME THAT PUFFIN FOR MY
BIRTHDAY?"
THEN IT WOULDN'T BE A
SURPRISE!

(music plays)

She open her present, takes out a white duck and says UM...
[sad trombone music]
IS THAT IT?
[balloon deflating]
I MEAN, WOW!
WHAT GREAT PRESENTS!

A toy frog sticks out its tongue and D.W. gasps.

D.W. says AND THEN THERE'S BEEN THIS
PARTY.
JAMES AND AMANDA COULDN'T COME
'CAUSE THEY WERE SICK.
AND EMILY JUST HAD TO WEAR A
PRETTIER DRESS.

Mum says OH, EMILY, DON'T
YOU LOOK ADORABLE!
IS THAT A NEW DRESS?

Emily says YES, Mrs. READ.
MARIE-HELENE BOUGHT IT FOR ME
IN PARIS.

D.W. says WELL, I HAVE A TIARA.

Emily says IT'LL MATCH MINE!

(music plays)
ALMOST!
MINE'S BIGGER.

(music plays)
[clink]

(music plays)

D.W. says SO FAR, BUD HAS WON
EVERY SINGLE GAME, LIKE HE
USUALLY DOES.
[quacking]

Bud says I WIN AGAIN!

D.W. says OH, COME ON, CAN'T
YOU LOSE JUST ONCE?
IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!

Bud says I CAN'T HELP IT.
I WAS JUST BORN LUCKY.

(music plays)
[quacking]

The Tibble twins try to tear down the piñata.

D.W. says AND THE TIBBLES?
WELL, THEY'VE JUST BEEN THE
TIBBLES.
BUT I WAS SORT OF HOPING
THEY'D BE A LITTLE LESS
TIBBLE-ISH.
[squeaking]

D.W. says IT'S DOWN, IT'S DOWN!
YOU CAN STOP HITTING!
[Tibbles laughing]

They start picking up the candy.

D.W. gasps.

[horse whinnying]

D.W. says AND THE CAKE WAS
SUPPOSED TO BE CHOCOLATE WITH
VANILLA ICING.
BUT DAD THOUGHT I SAID VANILLA
WITH CHOCOLATE ICING!
I'M NOT HUNGRY.
THINGS SHOULD BE PERFECT ON
YOUR BIRTHDAY!
WELL, SO FAR IT HAS BEEN THE
OPPOSITE OF THAT.

Emily says WHAT ARE WE GOING TO
PLAY NEXT?

D.W. says HIDE-'N'-SEEK.

Timmy says HIDE-'N'-SEEK?
AW, THAT'S A BABY GAME.

D.W. says IT IS
NOT
A BABY
GAME!
AND IF IT
WAS
A BABY GAME,
WE'RE STILL PLAYING IT.
YOU KNOW WHY?
BECAUSE IT'S MY BIRTHDAY, AND
EVERYONE HAS TO DO WHAT I SAY!
ARE WE CLEAR?

The kids nod.

Bud says CAN I BE IT?
I'M A REALLY GOOD FINDER.

D.W. says SURE.
YOU CAN BE 'IT'...
BUT YOU'RE NOT FINDING ME!

Bud says 16... 17...
18...
UH, WHAT COMES AFTER 18?

Emily says 19!

Bud says THANKS!
19... 20!
READY OR NOT, HERE I COME!

(music plays)

Hiding in a closet under the stairs, D.W. says SO, THAT'S BEEN MY
FIFTH BIRTHDAY SO FAR.
ONE GIGANTIC FLOP.

Nadine says AW, I'M SO SORRY.
WHAT ABOUT ARTHUR?
WHERE IS HE?

D.W. says DON'T EVEN GET ME
STARTED ON HIM!

Walking to the planetarium, Arthur says AND THE BEST PART
ABOUT THIS TRIP TO THE
PLANETARIUM IS THAT I GET TO
MISS THE PARTY!

Ladonna says WHAT PARTY?
IS THERE A PARTY?
CAN I COME?

Arthur says TRUST ME, YOU
WOULDN'T WANT TO GO TO THIS
ONE.

Ladonna says WHY NOT?
A PARTY IS A PARTY.

Buster says THIS IS D.W.'s
FIFTH BIRTHDAY PARTY.

Ladonna says YOU'RE MISSING
YOUR LITTLE SISTER'S BIRTHDAY?!
I COULD NEVER DO THAT.
COMPSONS DON'T MISS BIRTHDAYS.
THAT'S THE MOTTO ON OUR FAMILY
CREST.

Buster says YOU HAVE A FAMILY
CREST?

Ladonna says WELL, NO, BUT IF
WE DID HAVE ONE, THAT'S WHAT
IT WOULD BE.
IN LATIN.

Arthur says YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND.
D.W.'s PARTIES ARE A COMPLETE
NIGHTMARE FOR ME.
IT'S THE ONE DAY WHERE I HAVE
TO DO EVERYTHING SHE SAYS.
LIKE LAST YEAR, SHE MADE ME
GET ON MY HANDS AND KNEES AND
BE A PONY.

D.W. says FASTER, UNICORNY,
FASTER!
[clapping]

D.W. says OKAY, STOP BY THE
CASTLE.
UGH!
WHAT A TERRIBLE PARKING JOB.

(music plays)
OKAY, EMILY, IT'S YOUR TURN TO
RIDE HIM.

Arthur says NO WAY!
I'M DONE!

D.W. says MOOOOOOMMM!
ARTHUR'S BEING MEAN TO ME ON
MY BIRTHDAY!

Arthur says WHAT?!

Mum says ARTHUR.

Arthur says NO, I'M NOT!
MY BACK JUST HURTS!

Mum says HONEY, IT'S ONE
DAY.

Arthur sighs and says THIS IS SO UNFAIR.

D.W. gives Emily a bug slapper and says HERE.
IF YOU GIVE HIM A LITTLE TAP
ON THE TUCKUS, HE GOES FASTER.
[Tibbles laugh]

(music plays)

Ladonna says YIKES.
THAT
DOES
SOUND BAD.
STILL, YOU'RE GOING TO DO
SOMETHING FOR HER, RIGHT?

Arthur says OF COURSE.
I GOT HER THIS CARD.

(music plays)

Ladonna says D.W. DOESN'T
STAND FOR DAVID WINIFRED,
DOES IT?

Arthur says HUH?
NO, IT'S DORA, WHY?
Ladonna says BECAUSE THIS
SAYS: "TO THE WORLD'S BEST
LITTLE BROTHER."

(music plays)

Arthur says AW.
I COULD'VE SWORN THAT WAS A
LITTLE GIRL!

Buster says THEY ALL LOOK LIKE
MUTANTS TO ME.

Ladonna says DIDN'T YOU EVEN
OPEN IT UP?

Arthur says I WAS IN A RUSH!

Ladonna says WELL, I HOPE YOU
AT LEAST GOT HER A GOOD
PRESENT.

Arthur says UMM...

Ladonna says DON'T TELL ME YOU
FORGOT.

Arthur says IT'S OKAY, I'LL
JUST PICK UP SOME CHOCOLATE ON
THE WAY HOME.

Mr. Ratburn says OKAY, CLASS,
EVERYONE COME IN AND TAKE YOUR
SEATS.

Arthur says D.W. LOVES CHOCOLATE!
IT'S HER FAVOURITE THING IN
THE WORLD.

Ladonna says YOU WOULDN'T LAST
TOO LONG IN THE COMPSON
FAMILY.

Buster says WHAT KIND OF ANIMAL
IS THAT SUPPOSED TO BE ANYWAY?

Arthur says UM, MAYBE AN
AARDVARK.

(music plays)

D.W. says WHAT TIME IS IT?

Nadine says A HAIR PAST THREE
FRECKLES.

D.W. says WHY HASN'T ANYBODY
FOUND ME YET?
DO YOU THINK THEY'VE ALL
STOPPED LOOKING?

Nadine says NO, YOU'RE JUST THE
WORLD'S BEST HIDER, THAT'S
ALL.

(music plays)
YOU COULD OPEN THE PRESENT I
GOT YOU WHILE YOU WAIT.

D.W. says YOU GOT ME A PRESENT?

Nadine says OF COURSE!
WHAT ARE IMAGINARY FRIENDS
FOR?

(music plays)
AND IT'S VERY, VERY SPECIAL.

D.W. says WHAT IS IT?
[tinkling whoosh]

Nadine says A TICKET TO A
BEAUTIFUL AND MYSTERIOUS
ISLAND: UKUBONGA.
I'VE NEVER BEEN THERE, BUT I
HEAR IT'S WONDERFUL.
I WON IT FROM RUMPELSTILTSKIN
IN CRAZY EIGHTS.

D.W. says WOW, THANKS!
HOW DO I GET THERE?

Nadine says YOU JUST SCRATCH
OFF THAT GREY PATCH AND SAY
THE MAGIC SPELL.

D.W. says GREAT!
HEY, DO YOU HAVE A COIN?

Nadine makes a coin appear.

D.W. scratches the gray patch and says LET'S GO!

Nadine says IT'S ONLY A TICKET
FOR ONE.
I CAN'T GO WITH YOU.
AND, WELL, I SHOULD WARN YOU:
THE ISLAND GIVES YOU WHATEVER
YOU WANT.

D.W. says SO?
WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT?
I LOVE GETTING WHAT I WANT.

Nadine says WELL, SOMETIMES WHAT
YOU WANT TURNS OUT TO BE...
NOT SO GREAT.

D.W. says PUH-LEASE!
IT CAN'T BE ANY WORSE THAN
TODAY!

(music plays)

At the planetarium, Mr. Ratburn says ALL RIGHT, IN
JUST A MINUTE, YOU'LL ALL BE
TAKING A TRIP THROUGH THE
COSMOS.

Buster says Mr. RATBURN?

Mr. Ratburn says YES, BUSTER?

Buster says IF WE HAVE TO GO TO
THE BATHROOM, HOW DO WE STOP
THE ROCKET?

Mr. Ratburn says THERE IS NO
ROCKET, BUSTER.
YOU'RE GOING ON A VISUAL AND
AUDITORY TOUR.
IT'S A LIKE A MOVIE, BUT MORE
IMMERSIVE.

Buster says DO WE GET POPCORN?

Mr. Ratburn says NOPE.
NOW, JUST LEAN BACK, LOOK UP
AT THE STARS, AND THE SHOW
WILL BEGIN SHORTLY.
[cell phone ringing]

Mr. Ratburn says HELLO?
OH, HELLO, FRANCIS, JUST ONE
MINUTE.
HOW IS TANZANIA?
REALLY?
OH, THAT'S JUST WONDERFUL.
WELL, WE'RE AT THE
PLANETARIUM.
IT'S SCIENCE SATURDAY AND I
BROUGHT THE FULL CLASS OUT...

Arthur says I REALLY SHOULD'VE
GOTTEN D.W. A PRESENT.
I WAS GOING TO DO IT
YESTERDAY, BUT I JUST FORGOT.

Buster says IF WE GO BACK IN
TIME, I'LL REMIND YOU.

Arthur says THANKS.

Brain says YOU KNOW, IN A WAY,
TIME TRAVEL
IS
POSSIBLE.

Arthur says HOW?

Brain says WELL, IF YOU TRAVEL
CLOSE TO THE SPEED OF LIGHT,
THEN TIME WOULD SLOW DOWN.
WHAT WAS JUST AN HOUR FOR YOU
MIGHT'VE BEEN YEARS AND YEARS
ON EARTH.

Buster says SEE!
I TOLD YOU YOU COULD CHANGE
HISTORY.
LET'S GO BACK AND INVENT
DONUTS.
WE'LL BE MILLIONAIRES!

Brain says I DIDN'T SAY
ANYTHING LIKE THAT!
I SAID...

Arthur says SHH, IT'S STARTING!

(music plays)

The Announcer says THE UNIVERSE.
IT IS ALL THAT WE KNOW, AND
YET SO MUCH OF IT IS UNKNOWN.
IMAGINE YOU ARE TRAVELLING
THROUGH OUR SOLAR SYSTEM...
PAST MARS...
JUPITER...
SATURN...
URANUS...
AND NEPTUNE.
NOW, YOU ARE LEAVING THE SOLAR
SYSTEM AND ENTERING OUR VAST
GALAXY, THE MILKY WAY,
CONTAINING OVER 200 BILLION
STARS.

(music plays)

D.W. says OKAY, THERE'S THE
SPELL.

Nadine says NOW ALL YOU HAVE TO
DO IS RECITE IT AND YOUR
ADVENTURE WILL BEGIN.

D.W. says BUT I CAN'T READ!

Nadine says HOLD THE TICKET UP
TO YOUR FOREHEAD AND CLOSE
YOUR EYES.
THE WORDS WILL COME TO YOU.

D.W. says HEAR WHAT YOU WANT TO
HEAR.
SEE WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE.
TAKE ME TO THE LAND WHERE
IMAGINATION RUNS FREE.

(music plays)

The Announcer says WE ARE
APPROACHING SAGITTARIUS A, THE
SUPER MASSIVE BLACK HOLE AT
THE CENTRE OF OUR GALAXY.
IF WE COULD TRAVEL INSIDE IT,
WHERE WOULD IT TAKE US?

Arthur falls asleep.

(music plays)

D.W. appears on a beach and says OHH!
HUH?
WHERE AM I?
A BEACH?
BIG DEAL!
I'VE BEEN TO THE BEACH BEFORE.
OOH, A SAILBOAT!
NOW
THAT
LOOKS LIKE FUN!

(music plays)
[bird squawking]

(music plays)
[gasps]

(music plays)

D.W. gets on the sailboat and says WOO HOO!
[laughing]

D.W. says WOO HOO!
[laughing]

She rides some waves and says NOW WE'RE COOKIN' WITH GAS!
YEAH!
WOOOO!
WOO HOO, WHOOOAA!
ROLLER COASTER!
[laughing]
THAT WAS GREAT!
WHOAAAA!
WHAT'S HAPPENING?
AHHHHH!

She starts riding the tentacle of a giant octopus.

She says AHHHHH!
AHH, A GIANT OCTOPODI!
[gasping]
[screaming]
I HAD A NIGHTMARE ABOUT THIS
ONCE!
PUT ME DOWN!
IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!
I COMMAND YOU!

The octopus puts her back on the water.

[splash]

D.W. says WOW, THAT WASN'T
SO HARD.
ACTUALLY, PICK ME UP AGAIN!
NOW, CARRY ME OVER THESE BIG
WAVES!
THEY'RE FUN BUT THEY MAKE ME
A LITTLE SEASICK.
TO UKUBONGA, AND STEP ON IT!
WHOA!
[laughing]
YEAH, WOOO!
WOO-OOO-OOO-OOOO!

Buster shakes Arthur and says ARTHUR, WAKE UP!

Arthur says HUH?
DON'T TELL ME I MISSED THE
WHOLE THING!

Buster says YOU MISSED SOMETHING,
BUT I'M NOT SURE IT WAS THE
SHOW.

A girl says WHAT HAPPENED?

Muffy says HEY!
THIS ROOM LOOKS A LITTLE
DIFFERENT!

Brain says WEIRD!
MY WATCH HAS STOPPED!

Ladonna says WHAT'S GOIN' ON?

Brain says Mr. RATBURN LOOKS
DIFFERENT.

Ladonna says NO WAY!

Mr. Ratburn says SETTLE DOWN,
EVERYONE, SETTLE DOWN.
I HAVE SOME INTERESTING NEWS
TO REPORT.
WHILE YOU WERE WATCHING THE
SHOW, A SMALL WORMHOLE OPENED
UP IN THE SPACE-TIME
CONTINUUM.

Muffy says EW!
DID ANY WORMS GET OUT?

Mr. Ratburn says NO, BUT YOU
WERE ALL SUCKED INTO THE
WORMHOLE AND TRANSPORTED INTO
THE FUTURE.

Brain gasps and says HOW FAR INTO THE FUTURE?

Mr. Ratburn says EXACTLY FOUR
YEARS.
ALTHOUGH FOR YOU, ONLY AN HOUR
HAS ELAPSED.
YOU'RE STILL ALL IN THIRD
GRADE.

Ladonna says FOUR YEARS?!

Muffy says NO WAY!

Mr. Ratburn says THE GOOD NEWS
IS I'M GIVING YOU ALL AN EXTRA
DAY FOR YOUR HOMEWORK
ASSIGNMENTS WHILE YOU ADJUST
TO YOUR NEW TIME.
ENJOY THE REST OF THE WEEKEND!

(music plays)

Arthur says WOW.
I CAN'T BELIEVE FOUR YEARS
HAVE GONE BY.

Buster says I KNOW!
IT EXPLAINS WHY I'M SO HUNGRY.

Ladonna says I SEE A FEW TALLER
BUILDINGS AND AN ELECTRIC BUS.
BUT, ACTUALLY, NOT THAT MUCH
HAS CHANGED.

Muffy says WHAT ARE YOU TALKING
ABOUT?
LOOK AT THE NEW PHONES!

A girl carries a phone with a hologram of the person on the other end.

The voice says HE WAS JUST LIKE,
I AM
SO
NOT INTO THAT!

The girl says NO WAY!
HE SAID WHAT?

Muffy says HUH.
UGH, MINE IS SOOO FOUR YEARS
AGO!

Arthur says I WONDER IF MY
FAMILY WILL RECOGNIZE ME.

Ladonna says OF COURSE THEY WILL.
REMEMBER YOU HAVEN'T CHANGED
AT ALL.
THE QUESTION IS: WILL YOU
RECOGNIZE THEM?

Arthur enters his house and says HELLO?
ANYBODY HOME?

Kate says ARTHUR'S BACK!
[Arthur chuckling]

Arthur says HEY, D.W., YOUR
HAIR'S DIFFERENT.

Kate says I'M NOT D.W.!
I'M KATE!

Arthur says HUH?

Kate says UGH, IT'S BECAUSE I'M
WEARING THIS SILLY OUTFIT,
ISN'T IT?
I HAVE TO WEAR ALL HER
HAND-ME-DOWNS!

Mum says YOU'RE HOME!

Dad says ARTHUR?
WE MISSED YOU!
GOOD TO HAVE YOU BACK, SON!

Arthur says IT'S GOOD TO
BE
BACK.
WHERE'S D.W.?

Mum says SHE'S OUT WITH
HER FRIENDS.
IT'S HER NINTH BIRTHDAY.

Arthur says SHE'S OLDER THAN
ME?!

Dad says WELL, WE'RE ALL
OLDER, ARTHUR.
[deep barking]

Arthur greets Pal and says HEY, BOY!
YOU'RE ALL GROWN UP!
[slurp]

Kate says C'MON, I WANNA SHOW
YOU DORA'S ROOM BEFORE SHE
GETS HOME.
[slurp]

Arthur says DORA?

Dad says WHEN SHE TURNED
SIX, SHE DECIDED SHE ACTUALLY
LIKES THE NAME.
NOW SHE ONLY WANTS TO BE
CALLED THAT.

Kate says DORA WOULD NEVER LET
ME GO IN HERE ALONE.
BUT IT'S OKAY, BECAUSE I'M
WITH YOU.

Arthur says THIS USED TO BE
MY
ROOM.
HUH, I WOULD'VE THOUGHT THERE'D
BE MORE STUFFED ANIMALS.

Kate says WELL, DON'T TELL HER
I TOLD YOU...
BUT SHE STILL SLEEPS WITH UNI
SOMETIMES.
AND THIS IS WHERE SHE WORKS.
HERE, I'LL PRETEND TO BE HER.
GET OUTTA MY ROOM!
I'M DOING MY HOMEWORK!
DORA'S ALWAYS DOING HOMEWORK.
IT'S SO BORING.
BUT NOW THAT YOU'RE BACK, I'LL
HAVE SOMEONE TO PLAY WITH.

Arthur says UM...
[laughing]

He points at a picture of D.W. making horns with her fingers on Arthur’s head.

Arthur says THAT'S THE D.W. I REMEMBER.

Kate says LET'S GET OUT OF HERE.
I DON'T WANT TO GET IN
TROUBLE.
FIRST WE'RE GOING TO PLAY
CONFUSE THE MOOSE, THEN TOWER
OF TOFU, THEN...

Octopodi leaves D.W. by the shore.

D.W. says THANKS, OCTOPODI.
HERE, YOU CAN HAVE MY TIARA
FOR A TIP.
[tinkling]
[splash]

D.W. says HELLO?
ANYBODY HOME?
[squealing/grunting]

Twin hairy monsters hide in the forest.

Bobblebay says OOOH, A LITTLE
ONE!

Bobbleboo says BARELY A SNACK!

Another monster, Filomena says AND SO
UNAPPEALING.

Munk says I FOUND HER FIRST SO I
GET THE FIRST BITE.

D.W. says "BITE"?
WHO SAID "BITE"?

They roar and run towards her.

D.W. says WAIT, STOP, I HAVE A TICKET!

Bobbleboo says LET ME SEE THAT.

(music plays)
IT'S TRUE!
SHE HAS THE TICKET!

Bobblebay says SHE IS THE
CHOSEN ONE!

The monsters say ALL HAIL QUEEN...

Munk says WHAT'S YOUR NAME?

D.W. says D.W.

The monsters say D.W.!
WELCOME TO UKUBONGA!
HOORAY!

They roar and dance around her.

D.W. says STOP!

They freeze.

D.W. says WELL, THAT'S MORE LIKE IT.
NOW THAT YOU KNOW WHO I AM,
LET'S FIND OUT WHO YOU ARE.
WHAT ARE YOUR NAMES?

Bobblebay says I'M BOBBLEBAY.

Bobbleboo says I'M BOBBLEBOO.

Bobbles says WE'RE THE BOBBLES.

D.W. says HMM.
YOU TWO SORT OF REMIND ME OF
SOME PEOPLE.
DO YOU LIKE TO SHOUT?

Bobblebay says NO!
I HATE SHOUTING.
I LIKE BEING GENTLE AND QUIET.

Bobbleboo says I CAN BE QUIETER
THAN YOU.

Bobblebay says NO, YOU CAN'T.

Bobbleboo says OH, YEAH?
WATCH ME.
[Bobblebay burps]

Bobbleboo says TOLD YA.

D.W. says WHO ARE YOU?

Munk says MUK.

Munk wears a hat similar to Bud’s hat.

D.W. says THAT'S A NICE HAT.
YOU DIDN'T WIN IT OFF SOME
SCRAPPY LITTLE KID NAMED BUD,
DID YOU?

Munk says NO!
I NEVER WIN AT ANYTHING.
THIS HAT IS PART OF MY HEAD.
PULL IT.
OW.
OW.
OW, OW, OW.
SEE?

D.W. says O... KAY.

Filomena says I'M FILOMENA.
ENCHANTE.

D.W. says WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?

Filomena says RAGS.
I PICKED THEM OUT MYSELF.
AREN'T THEY GORGEOUS?

D.W. says UM... NO.

Bobblebay says IT'S TRUE.

Bobbleboo says THEY'RE
TERRIBLE!

Munk says YOU LOOK LIKE A CHEW
TOY.

Filomena says UGH!
I GUESS I JUST HAVE TERRIBLE
TASTE.

D.W. says ALL RIGHT, THE
INTRODUCTIONS ARE OVER.
WHAT DO WE DO NOW?

Filomena says WHATEVER YOU
WANT!
YOU'RE THE QUEEN.

Filomena gives her a crown and a sceptre.

D.W. says GOOD POINT.
OKAY, I SAY WE HAVE A BIG
PARTY, WITH... A FEAST!

The monsters say OOH, YEAH!
A FEAST!
I LOVE FEASTS!

D.W. says AND MUSIC!

[Arthur yawning]

Kate and Arthur play a game.

Kate says I WIN!
LET'S PLAY AGAIN!

Arthur says WE'VE ALREADY
PLAYED FOUR TIMES!

Kate says FINE!
WE'LL PLAY SOMETHING ELSE.
BOY, YOU GET BORED EASILY.
I KNOW!
LET'S PLAY HORSEY!
JUST PUT THIS IN YOUR MOUTH
AND I'LL RIDE YOU.

Arthur says WAIT!
DID D.W. TELL YOU TO...

D.W. says NOPE.
SHE DISCOVERED IT ALL ON HER
OWN.

(music plays)

Arthur says D.W.!
I MEAN, DORA.

D.W. says MY LONG LOST BIG
BROTHER!
WHO IS
NOT
THAT BIG ANYMORE.
HI, SHORTY!
[Arthur laughs]

Arthur says CUT IT OUT.

D.W. says YOU HAVEN'T CHANGED A
BIT.

Arthur says YOU HAVE.

D.W. says NOT REALLY.
IT'S STILL THE SAME OLD ME.
AND I STILL WANT MY SNOWBALL
BACK!

Arthur says D.W., I TOLD YOU,
ONCE AND FOR ALL, I NEVER...

D.W. laughs and says I'M KIDDING!
I HAVEN'T THOUGHT ABOUT THAT
OLD THING IN YEARS.
C'MON, LET'S GET A SNACK.
I'M STARVING.

(music plays)

Kate says DON'T TELL HER THAT I
WENT INTO HER ROOM!

D.W. says I HEARD THAT.
YOU'LL PAY LATER, KATIE-BUG!

(music plays)

Sittin on the sofa, Arthur says SO, UM, HOW'S
SCHOOL?
WE'RE NOT IN THE SAME CLASS,
ARE WE?

D.W. says I SKIPPED A YEAR SO
I'M A FOURTH GRADER.
BUT I HAD Mr. RATBURN LAST
YEAR.
HE GAVE SOOO MUCH HOMEWORK!

Arthur says I KNOW, RIGHT?

D.W. says I FINALLY GET WHY YOU
WERE ALWAYS SO CRABBY.

Arthur says WAS I ALWAYS CRABBY?

D.W. says NO, I JUST MEAN, YOU
KNOW, BUSY.
I'M SURE I DIDN'T HELP EITHER.
I BET I WAS EVEN WORSE THAN
KATE.

Arthur says YOU WEREN'T SO BAD.
OH, I ALMOST FORGOT...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I WAS GOING TO GET YOU A
PRESENT, BUT...

D.W. says ARE YOU KIDDING?
HAVING YOU BACK IS THE BEST
PRESENT EVER.

(music plays)
HEY, WANNA SEE MY FAVOURITE
SHOW?

Arthur says MARY MOO COW?

D.W. says DON'T BE SILLY!
THAT'S A BABY SHOW!
ALTHOUGH THEY DID PUT A LOT
OF ADULT REFERENCES IN THERE.
NO, THIS IS MY FAVOURITE SHOW.
[theme music]

D.W. says CYBORG CINDY.
[dramatic music]

D.W. says SHE'S A TEENAGE GIRL
WHO IS PART ROBOT, BUT NO ONE
KNOWS EXCEPT HER BEST FRIEND.
IT'S A SPIN-OFF FROM BIONIC
BUNNY.
WANNA WATCH?

Arthur says SURE!
DEFINITELY!
[dramatic music]

D.W. says PRETTY COOL, RIGHT?

Arthur says YEAH!
THIS IS... REALLY FUN!

D.W. says WELCOME HOME.

(music plays)

Later on the island, the monsters roar and dance around a bonfire.

The moon says HUH?

The monsters fall to the floor out of exhaustion.

D.W. says NOW,
THAT'S
WHAT I CALL A
PARTY!
OOF!

She drops down.

The show opens with a clip of Arthur and his dog walking down a street. Arthur is an 8-year-old aardvark. He has a round head with small round ears and short brown hair, and he wears glasses.

The scene continues when Arthur jumps into the cover of a book that a little girl reads on her bed. The book is called "Arthur." It makes the girl laugh.

A song plays on as all this takes place.

The lyrics say
EVERY DAY WHEN YOU'RE WALKING DOWN THE STREET EVERYBODY THAT YOU MEET HAS AN ORIGINAL POINT OF VIEW AND I SAY HEY!

Arthur opens the bedroom door and says HEY!

The song goes on, and a bunch of smiling animal faces sing WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY IF WE COULD LEARN TO WORK AND PLAY AND GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER

Now Arthur takes a family picture as his parents, grandparents, sisters, and dog sit on the family couch.

The song keeps playing
YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO YOUR HEART LISTEN TO THE BEAT LISTEN TO THE RHYTHM THE RHYTHM OF THE STREET OPEN UP YOUR EYES OPEN UP YOUR EARS GET TOGETHER AND MAKE THINGS BETTER BY WORKING TOGETHER IT'S A SIMPLE MESSAGE AND IT COMES FROM THE HEART

Arthur looks at the family album. He hugs his mum and jumps out to the city. He sees bikes, cars, and shops. He high-fives a friend that cycles by.

The song goes on
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF FOR THAT'S THE PLACE TO START AND I SAY

Now Arthur falls into a swimming pool and plays with friends.

The song continues
HEY! HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY IF WE COULD LEARN TO WORK AND PLAY AND GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY

Now Arthur's sister closes her "Arthur" book and sees Arthur on the living room TV.

She says HEY!

Arthur falls backwards and a caption reads "Based on the Arthur adventure books by Marc Brown."

(music plays)

In bed, Arthur says HAVE YOU EVER HAD
SOMETHING REALLY EMBARRASSING
HAPPEN TO YOU?
ONCE I WAS IN THE SCHOOL PLAY
AND I FORGOT MY LINES.

On stage, Arthur and the kids are dressed as food.

Buster says AND DON'T FORGET ME,
BROCCOLI, BECAUSE VEGETABLES
ARE A GREAT SOURCE OF VITAMINS
AND MINERALS!
APPLAUSE

In a banana costume, Arthur says HI, I'M UM...
AH...
PROTEIN AND I'M FROM THE BANANA
GROUP.
I MEAN AH...I'M A FRUIT FROM
THE CHICKEN FAMILY.
AH...UH OH.
THEN THERE WAS THE TIME I TOLD
EVERYONE I COULD PLAY THE
RACHMANINOFF PRELUDE IN C SHARP
MINOR BLINDFOLDED AND MISS
KRASNEY ASKED ME TO DO IT.
WHAT?
NO BLINDFOLD?
SORRY, CAN'T DO IT.
AND I'LL NEVER FORGET THE TIME
I HAD TO TAKE D.W. TO MY SCOUT
MEETING.

D.W and Arthur try to make knots.

D.W says ARTHUR YOU'RE TYING IT
WRONG.
IT DOESN'T LOOK RIGHT.
WHY DON'T YOU ASK SOMEBODY FOR
HELP?

Arthur says HELP!
BUT ACTUALLY THE MOST
EMBARRASSING THING THAT
HAPPENED TO ME, DIDN'T REALLY
HAPPEN, IT WAS JUST A DREAM.

The tittle of the episode reads "Arthur’s Underwear."

In the classroom, Binky says SIX TIMES EIGHT IS
48.
IF YOU CARRY THE FOUR...SO THE
ANSWER IS UM...108.

Mister Ratburn says VERY GOOD
BINKY!

Binky says YES!

He drops the chalk.

He says OOPS!

He bends over to pick the chalk up and the back of his trousers tear.

(FABRIC TEARS)

Children laugh.

Mister Ratburn ties his jacket round Binky’s waist and says BINKY.
GO TO THE OFFICE AND MISS
KINGLEY WILL SEW THEM UP FOR
YOU.
ALL RIGHT, SETTLE DOWN.
YES BINKY IS WEARING UNDERWEAR
JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN THIS
ROOM.

Arthur laughs.

At the baseball field, Buster and Arthur laugh at Binky as he walks past them.

Arthur falls off the bench.

Arthur says OH!

Later, Binky rides his bike and Arthur laughs at him.

Arthur laughs.

At dinner, Arthur’s mom says SO ANYTHING
INTERESTING HAPPEN AT SCHOOL
TODAY ARTHUR?

Arthur laughs.
(COUGHING)
(LAUGHING)

(music plays)

Arthur laughs.

He goes to bed and keeps laughing.

(BIRD CHIRPING)

Arthur wakes up and sees he’s late for school.

He gasps and says OH NO!
I'M GOING TO BE LATE FOR
SCHOOL.

He rushes out.

(music plays)

A police officer blows the whistle at him.

(music plays)

Arthur enters the classroom and says I'M SORRY I'M LATE
MISTER RATBURN.
I GUESS MY MOM JUST FORGOT TO
WAKE ME UP AND...

The children laugh.

Mister Ratburn says MISTER READ BEING
LATE IS ONE THING BUT NOT
WEARING ANY TROUSERS, THAT IS
QUITE ANOTHER!

He looks down and realises he’s in his underwear.

Arthur wakes up screaming in the middle of the night.

He says WHAT A HORRIBLE DREAM!

(SCHOOL BELL RINGING)

In the classroom, Arthur says IT WAS SO SCARY, I
HARDLY GOT ANY SLEEP.

Mister Ratburn says QUIET DOWN
CLASS AND TAKE YOUR SEATS.
TODAY WE'LL BE WATCHING A FILM
ABOUT MICROSCOPIC ORGANISMS.

The children says WHOA!
A MOVIE!
WE'RE GOING TO SEE A MOVIE.

The movie narrator says THERE ARE
MANY LIFE FORMS SO SMALL THAT
THEY CANNOT BE SEEN WITHOUT THE
AID OF A MICROSCOPE.
THE AMOEBA IS A SINGLE CELL
LIFE FORM FOUND IN MOIST DIRT
AND STAGNANT WATER.

Arthur falls asleep on his desk.

The narrator says THE AMOEBA REPRODUCES BY
SPLITTING INTO TWO EQUAL HALVES
IN A PROCESS KNOWN AS FISSION.

He imagines he splits in two halves and the trousers part leaves him.

He says COME BACK, COME BACK!

Amoeba children laugh at him.

Arthur says COME BACK, COME
BACK!

Buster says PST!
WAKE UP, THE MOVIE'S OVER.

(SCHOOL BELL RINGING)

At the school cafeteria, Arthur says TWICE IN ONE DAY.

Buster says THAT'S NOT SO BAD.
I HAD THIS DREAM ONCE THAT
THERE WAS A WHOLE PLANET OF
MONSTERS SHAPED LIKE TUBES OF
TOOTHPASTE.
I WAS SO SCARED I COULDN'T
BRUSH FOR A WEEK.

Arthur says WHAT SHOULD I DO
ABOUT IT?
I'M SORT OF SCARED TO GO TO BED
TONIGHT.

Buster says I KNOW!
DON'T SLEEP.
CAN'T DREAM IF YOU DON'T SLEEP.

At home, Dad says GOOD NIGHT
ARTHUR.

Arthur says GOOD NIGHT DAD.

(music plays)

Arthur tries not to fall asleep.

He keeps himself entertained by reading, singing songs and playing with toys.

Arthur says AND ON HIS FARM HE
HAD SOME GIRAFFES.
E-I-E-I-O.
WITH A...
OH FORGET IT!

(music plays)

Arthur says (YAWNS)
I'LL GET YOU VERMINATOR.
AFTER I TAKE A LITTLE NAP...

Arthur falls asleep and dreams that one of his action figures is in front of the class.

Verminator says SURRENDER CLASS.
THERE IS NO ESCAPE.
(EVIL LAUGHTER)

The children say NO, NO!
(HIGH PITCHED SCRATCHING)

Verminator lays his nails on the blackboard and start scratching it.

The children scream.

Verminator says MOAN ALL YOU
WANT.
NO ONE CAN HELP NOW.

Outside, Arthur-Bionic Bunny hears them scream.

He enters the classroom and says AWAY FROM THAT BLACKBOARD
VERMINATOR BEFORE I...

Verminator and the children laugh at him. He’s in his underwear.

Arthur says OH NO!
MUST FIND MY PANTS.

Mom says YES YOU'LL
WANT PANTS.
NOW SHAKE A LEG SLEEPY HEAD,
YOU'RE GOING TO BE LATE FOR
SCHOOL.

Arthur gasps and says IT EVEN HAPPENS WHEN I'M A
SUPERHERO.

At the Sugar Bowl, he says I'M DOOMED.

Buster says I KNOW.

Arthur says WHAT?

Buster says IT'S SIMPLE.
JUST GO TO SLEEP IN YOUR PANTS
ARTHUR.
THAT WAY YOU DON'T HAVE TO
WORRY ABOUT FORGETTING TO PUT
THEM ON.

At night, Arthur puts his pants on to sleep.

D.W says ARTHUR!
HAVE YOU SEEN NADINE'S TEDDY
BEAR?
IT'S PINK.
ABOUT THIS BIG.
HEY!
WHY ARE YOU WEARING YOUR PANTS
TO BED?

Arthur says AH...BECAUSE THEY'RE
REALLY STIFF AND I'M TRYING TO
BREAK THEM IN.

D.W says REALLY?
COOL!
MOM WAS GOING TO WASH MY PANTS
TO MAKE THEM SOFTER.
BUT I'LL JUST WEAR THEM TO BED
INSTEAD.

Arthur says NO D.W!

D.W says IN FACT, MY NEW BOOTS
HURT A LITTLE TOO.
I THINK I'LL SLEEP IN THOSE
TONIGHT.

(music plays)

At the laundromat, Arthur says THEY'RE GOING TO
CALL ME NAMES LIKE BOXER BOY
AND ARTY NO PANTS AND THEN I'LL
HAVE TO CHANGE SCHOOLS.

Buster says ARTHUR?
HOW ARE YOU GOING TO GO TO
SCHOOL WITHOUT YOUR PANTS?
ITS IMPOSSIBLE.

Arthur says BUT IT'S BOUND TO
HAPPEN SOONER OR LATER, BECAUSE
I KEEP DREAMING ABOUT IT.

Buster says NOT AFTER TODAY.
I KNOW HOW TO CURE YOU.
I'LL JUST HYPNOTIZE YOU...

Arthur moves a yoyo back and forth, like a pendulum.

He says YOU ARE GETTING VERY SLEEPY.
VERY SLEEPY.
YOU ARE NOT AFRAID OF LOSING
YOUR PANTS.
ARTHUR?
ARTHUR?
WAKE UP.
YOU WERE ASLEEP.
DID YOU HAVE THE DREAM?

Arthur says NO, I DON'T THINK
SO.

Buster says THEN IT WORKED.
JUST LIKE T.V.

Arthur says WOW!
YOU CURED ME BUSTER.
I'M CURED!
WHOPPEE!

He jumps and his pants fall down.

Arthur says HEY!
HOW DID I DO THAT?
(DRAMATIC MUSIC)

Buster says MAYBE YOUR MOM'S
BEEN USING TOO MUCH STARCH.

The pants set themselves up and chase Arthur.

Arthur says HELP!

Buster says YUP.
THOSE PANTS SURE NEED A LOT OF
FABRIC SOFTENER.

Arthur says GET THEM AWAY!
THEY'RE TRYING TO EAT ME!

Buster says ARTHUR!
SNAP OUT OF IT.
YOU ARE NOW AWAKE.

Buster snaps his fingers.

Arthur says GREAT.
NOW I'M NOT AFRAID OF LOSING MY
PANTS, I'M AFRAID OF BEING
EATEN BY THEM.
PROMISE YOU'LL NEVER TELL
ANYONE ABOUT THIS.

Buster says YOUR SECRET IS SAFE
WITH ME ARTHUR.
CROSS MY HEART AND HOPE TO DIE.

At the cafeteria, Francine says SH!

Muffy laughs.

Arthur says WHAT?
WHAT'S SO FUNNY?

Muffy says SH!

Francine says HEY ARTHUR, DO YOU
HAVE YOUR PANTS ON?

Arthur says OF COURSE I HAVE MY
PANTS ON.
WHY SHOULDN'T I?

Muffy says WE THOUGHT YOU MIGHT
HAVE FORGOTTEN TO WEAR THEM.
BUSTER TOLD US YOU WERE HAVING
NIGHTMARES ABOUT IT.

Arthur says WHAT?
WELL IT'S NOT TRUE.

Arthur changes tables.

Muffy and Francine laugh.

Brain says OH HI ARTHUR.
I'M GLAD YOU DECIDED TO SIT
WITH ME.
BUSTER TOLD ME ABOUT YOUR
NIGHTMARE SO I TOOK OUT SOME
BOOKS ON THE STUDY OF DREAMS.
APPARENTLY YOU HAVE A
PATHOLOGICAL FEAR OF
EMBARRASSMENT.

Arthur says THIS CAN'T BE
HAPPENING.
I MUST BE DREAMING.
BUSTER, BUSTER!
WAKE ME UP, I'M HAVING A
NIGHTMARE.

Buster says YOU DON'T LOOK LIKE
YOU'RE ASLEEP.
WHY DO YOU THINK THAT?

Arthur says BECAUSE EVERYONE
SEEMS TO KNOW ABOUT MY
UNDERWEAR DREAM.

Buster says NOT EVERYONE.
I JUST TOLD A FEW KIDS.

Arthur says YOU DID?
HOW COULD YOU?
YOU PROMISED!

Buster says BECAUSE NOTHING I
DID WAS HELPING YOU.
I NEEDED SOME ADVICE.

Arthur says THIS IS SO
EMBARRASSING.
EVERYONE IS LAUGHING AT ME.
THAT'S WHAT I WAS AFRAID OF IN
THE FIRST...
OW!

His pants get stuck on a metal handle and the fabric tear.

(FABRIC TEARS)

The children laugh.

Binky covers Arthur with two trays.

Binky says COME ON ARTHUR.
TO THE KITCHEN.

In the kitchen, Missus MacGrady darns Arthur’s pants.

Buster says I'M SORRY ARTHUR, I
SHOULDN'T HAVE TOLD ANYONE.
I FEEL TERRIBLE.

Arthur says IT'S OKAY.
YOU WERE TRYING TO HELP.
I JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO TELL
MOM AND DAD I HAVE TO CHANGE
SCHOOLS.

Missus MacGrady says WELL HERE
THEY ARE, GOOD AS NEW.
EVEN BETTER.
YOUR BACK POCKET WAS MISSING A
BUTTON.

Arthur says THANKS MISSUS
MACGRADY.
IS THERE A BACK EXIT I COULD
USE?

Missus MacGrady says NO.
BUT THERE'S AN OLD ZEN SAYING
ARTHUR, A BANANA WITHOUT ITS
PEEL IS STILL A BANANA.

Arthur says HUH?
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

Binky says IT MEANS PEOPLE GET
EMBARRASSED ALL THE TIME.
GROWN-UPS TOO.

Missus MacGrady says YOU'RE STILL
ARTHUR, A SMART, KIND, YOUNG
MAN.
WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR PANTS.

At the Sugar Bowl, Arthur says IT'S BEEN EXACTLY
ONE WEEK SINCE I HAD AN
UNDERWEAR NIGHTMARE.

Buster says THAT'S GREAT ARTHUR.
I NEVER WOULD HAVE GUESSED THAT
RIPPING YOUR PANTS WOULD BE THE
THING TO CURE YOU.

Arthur says WELL NOW YOU'LL KNOW
WHAT TO DO IF YOU EVER HAVE THE
NIGHT MARE.
COME ON LET'S GO.

Buster slurps.

Arthur says UM, BUSTER I THINK
YOU FORGOT SOMETHING.

Buster looks down and sees his pants are missing.

He screams and wakes up.

He says OH...
HERE WE GO AGAIN!

(music plays)

At art class, the Teacher says I WANT EVERYONE TO
THINK ABOUT A SPECIAL DREAM
THEY HAVE AND THEN DRAW IT.

Arthur says I THINK ITS PRETTY
EASY TO FIGURE OUT THE KIND OF
SPECIAL DREAM BUSTER WOULD
HAVE.

Buster plays video games in his room.

Buster mom says BUSTER!
HAVE YOU DONE YOUR HOMEWORK?

Buster says OH NO!
ROBOT!
I ALMOST FORGOT.

The robot says DON'T WORRY MASTER.
ROBOTS NEVER FORGET.

The machine prints the homework.

Buster says PERFECT!

Arthur says AND I KNOW THE KIND
OF DREAM MUFFY WOULD LIKE TO
HAVE COME TRUE.

Muffy has tea with Muffy.

Muffy says MORE TEA?

MUFFY 2 says LOVELY.
I ADORE YOUR DRESS BY THE WAY.

Muffy says THANK YOU.
YOU HAVE WONDERFUL PERCEPTION.
(HUMMING)

Arthur says BUT WHAT FRANCINE
WANTS IS THE MOST OBVIOUS OF
ALL.

(music plays)

Francine leaves for school on a horse.

At the window, Francine’s dad throws her lunch box and says DON'T FORGET
YOUR LUNCH HONEY!

Francine says THANKS DAD.
GIDDY-UP!

Muffy says I DON'T CARE WHAT
ANYBODY SAYS, MY BIKE IS THE
MOST POWERFUL.
I MEAN, HOW MANY SPEEDS DOES
YOUR BIKE HAVE BRAIN?
MINE HAS 15.

Brain says I'M AFRAID I MUST
DISAGREE.
MINE WITH ITS HALF HORSEPOWER
ASSIST IS FAR SUPERIOR.

Binky says WELL ALL I CAN SAY
IS...

(HORSE NEIGHING)

All say WHOA!

Francine says HI GUYS!

Watching at Francine’s drawing, Binky says A HORSE?
YOU'VE NEVER EVEN BEEN ON A
HORSE.
(LAUGHING)

Francine says JUST WAIT BINKY
BARNES!
JUST YOU WAIT!

The title of the episode reads "Francine Frensky, Olympic Rider."

Arthur says ARGH!

At home, Francine says I DID IT.
I SAVED 30 WHOLE DOLLARS.

Francine’s dad says THAT'S GREAT
HONEY.
IS IT FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL?

Francine says FOR RIDING
LESSONS.
YOU SAID IF I COULD SAVE THE
MONEY YOU'D TAKE ME.
RIGHT?

In the kitchen, Francine’s dad offers her some cookies.

Francine says I TOLD YOU I'M NEVER EATING
AGAIN.

Francine’s mom says HONEY IT'S
NOT THAT WE WON'T KEEP OUR
PROMISE.
IF WE SAID THAT YOU CAN RIDE,
THEN WE WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO
DO IT.

Francine’s dad says BUT THE
LESSONS ARE DURING THE DAY WHEN
WE'RE BOTH AT WORK AND YOU'RE
TOO YOUNG TO GO BY YOURSELF.

Catherine says HI GUYS!

Francine’s dad says BUT IF
SOMEONE OLDER, SOMEONE KIND AND
GENEROUS, WAS WILLING TO TAKE
YOU, THEN THAT WOULD BE ANOTHER
STORY.

Francine says NO WAY!

Catherine says WHATEVER IT IS,
I'M NOT DOING IT AND THAT'S
FINAL!

Catherine and Francine ride their bikes together.

Catherine says I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE TO DO
THIS.

Francine says QUIT MOANING!
MOM AND DAD ARE PAYING FOR THE
LESSONS AND IT WASN'T CHEAP.

Catherine says RIGHT, AND THAT'S
THE POINT.
THERE GOES MY NEW FALL
WARDROBE.
I COULD HAVE HAD MY EARS
PIERCED.
OR AT LEAST I COULD HAVE HAD
SOME SAY IN HOW THEY SPENT
THEIR SAVINGS.
YOU KNOW, IT REALLY MAKES ME
MAD HOW THEY NEVER ASK MY
OPINION...

Francine says KATHERINE, DON'T
LOOK NOW BUT YOU HAVE A HOLE IN
YOUR PANTS.

Catherine says WHERE?

Francine laughs.

Catherine says I TOLD YOU THIS
PLACE WAS CREEPY.

Stanley arrives in his truck.

Stanley short auburn hair with bangs, and wears a beige cowboy hat with a red band around it, a yellow button-up shirt, blue jeans, and brown shoes.

Stanley says HEY ARE YOU HERE
FOR THE RIDING LESSONS?

Catherine gasps.

Stanley says I'M STANLEY THE
INSTRUCTOR.
READY FOR SOME FUN?

Catherine says FUN?
OF COURSE.
WE LOVE FUN, RIGHT FRANCINE?
YOU CAN'T HAVE TOO MUCH FUN.
THAT'S WHAT I ALWAYS SAY.

Catherine giggles.

Francine says WOULD YOU RELAX.
ITS ONLY A BOY.

Stanley says NOW THE FIRST THING
IS TO MEET THE HORSES, GET TO
KNOW THEM A BIT.
THIS GUY'S NAME IS BRONCO.

Francine says CAN WE PET HIM?

Stanley says SURE.
JUST REMEMBER, HORSES SPOOK
EASILY.
SO YOU WANT TO BE VERY GENTLE.

Catherine says IT'S JUST LIKE
VELVET.
OR REALLY NICE COTTON POLY-
BLEND.

Stanley says THAT'S IT.
NICE AND EASY.

Francine says LET ME TRY.

The horse neighs and Francine jumps back.

Francine says WHOA!
IS HE LIKE A WILD STALLION OR
SOMETHING?

Stanley says ACTUALLY HE'S
USUALLY PRETTY GENTLE.
HE'S ALL YOUR'S.

The girls get all set up and ready to jump on their horses.

Stanley says ALL SET?
LEFT HAND ON THE REINS.
LEFT FOOT IN THE STIRRUP.
AND UP.

Francine says OOP!

Francine misses her step and falls on the ground.

Stanley says DON'T FEEL BAD.
THIS WILL BE A LOT EASIER IN A
FEW YEARS WHEN YOU'RE TALLER.

Stanley helps her get on the horse’s back.

Francine says WOW!
THIS IS REALLY, REALLY...
HIGH.
HEY!
WHOA!
HOW DO YOU MAKE HIM STOP?

The horse stops to eat some tree leaves.

Francine says COME ON BRONCO.
HOW DO YOU MAKE HIM GO?

Stanley says YOU HAVE TO SHOW
HIM WHO'S BOSS.

Catherine says THAT'S RIGHT
FRANCINE.
SHOW HIM WHO'S BOSS.

Francine says DID YOU HEAR THAT
BRONCO?
I'M THE BOSS.

(HORSE NEIGHING)

Francine says HUH?
OKAY...NO PRESSURE.
WHATEVER.

(music plays)

Francine’s dad goes in the girls’ room and says SO, HOW DID
IT GO?
ARE YOU THE QUEEN OF THE WILD
FRONTIER?

Francine says I'M KINDA TIRED
DAD.
CAN WE TALK ABOUT IT TOMORROW?

Francine’s dad says SURE KIDDO.
ANYTHING YOU SAY.

Catherine says WELL I DON'T MIND
TALKING ABOUT IT.
IT WAS REALLY GREAT.
WE MOSTLY WALKED TODAY BUT
STANLEY SAID I DID SO WELL THAT
HE SAID HE MIGHT LET ME TRY TO
TROT TOMORROW OR THE DAY AFTER.

Francine turns the light off.

Stanley says ARE YOU SCARED
FRANCINE?

Francine says ARE YOU KIDDING?
I WAS BORN TO RIDE.

Stanley says YOU'RE GOING TO
HAVE TO OPEN YOUR EYES THEN.
I PROMISE YOU WON'T FALL.
I'LL BE RIGHT HERE OKAY?

Stanley holds the horse by the reins and and gently walks him around the paddock.

Francine says OKAY.
STOP!
IT'S TOO FAST!

Stanley says GOOD START.
NEXT TIME WE'LL TAKE IT A
LITTLE BIT SLOWER.

Catherine says THIS IS EASY
I COULD DO IT FOREVER.

Francine says SHOW OFF.

Catherine dreams she’s at a horse show.

The Announcer says YOU'VE SEEN HER
DEMOLISH THE COMPETITION AT
THAT.
YOU'VE THRILLED HER SKILL AT
THE PLATE AND NOW THE RULER OF
THE RING, FRANCINE FRENSKY!
OLYMPIC RIDER!
ALL YOU FOLKS OUT THERE WHO
THOUGHT FRANCINE WAS TOO BOSSY.
YES MUFFY...

Muffy gasps.

The Announcer says ...THAT MEANS
YOU.
AND ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T
BELIEVE SHE COULD EVEN RIDE A
HORSE.
BINKY?
WELL EAT YOUR HEARTS OUT
BECAUSE FRANCINE'S IN THE
OLYMPICS AND YOU'RE NOT!
BUT WAIT!
LOOK.
OVER THERE.
IT'S FRANCINE'S SISTER, WHOSE
NOT ONLY OLDER AND TALLER BUT A
BETTER RIDER!

Francine says GET OUT OF HERE.
THIS IS MY DREAM.

Catherine says NOT ANYMORE.
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Catherine makes a jump and the crowd cheers.

Catherine jumps so hi she gets out of the field.

The judges give Catherine a perfect score.

Catherine sighs in her dream.

The following day at the paddock, Stanley says MUCH BETTER.
EVEN BRONCO'S STARTING TO
NOTICE.

Francine says REALLY?
EVEN THOUGH I DROPPED THE
REINS?

Stanley says DON'T SWEAT IT.
THAT HAPPENS TO EVERYONE.

Francine says OKAY BRONCO.
BACK TO THE BARN AND NO MORE
LEAVES.

In the barn, Stanley says WE REALLY NEED SOME
EXTRA HELP AROUND HERE.
SO IF YOU'RE WILLING TO WORK AN
HOUR OR TWO A DAY, I'LL GIVE
YOU FREE LESSONS.

Catherine says YOU'RE KIDDING?
WHAT ABOUT FRANCINE?

Stanley says WELL FRANCINE'S
DOING FINE FOR A BEGINNER BUT
SHE'S NOT QUITE AT YOUR LEVEL
AND WE USUALLY ONLY OFFER THIS
TO OUR BEST STUDENTS.

Francine overhears their conversation.

Catherine says OH NO.

Francine takes down a horse poster from her bedroom wall.

Francine’s dad says REDECORATING?

Francine says I JUST DON'T LIKE
HORSES ANYMORE.
THEY'RE FOR BABIES.

At lunch, Francine’s mom says YOU'RE
QUITTING YOUR LESSONS?
BUT YOU HAVE ANOTHER WEEK TO
GO.

Francine says IT'S BORING.
I'D RATHER RIDE MY BIKE.

Catherine says BUT STANLEY SAID
YOU WERE DEFINITELY IMPROVING.

Francine says REALLY?
I THOUGHT HE SAID THAT I WASN'T
QUITE UP TO YOUR LEVEL.
MAY I BE EXCUSED?

(HUMMING)

Francine watches TV on the couch.

Catherine says ARE YOU SURE YOU
DON'T WANT TO COME?
WE'RE GOING TO START JUMPING
TODAY.

Francine says NO.
I'M GOING TO HANG OUT WITH MY
FRIENDS.
I FEEL LIKE HAVING SOME FUN FOR
A CHANGE.

In the park, Arthur says WHAT DO YOU WANT TO
DO?

Buster says I DON'T KNOW.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?

Brain says I DON'T KNOW.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?

Francine says I DON'T KNOW.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?

Arthur says WHAT DO YOU WANT TO
DO?

D.W says ARTHUR, MOM SAYS IF
YOU'RE NOT DOING ANYTHING, THEN
WE COULD PLAY COVERED WAGON AND
YOU COULD BE THE HORSE WHO DIES
OF THIRST JUST TEN MILES FROM
THE END OF THE DESERT.

Arthur says SORRY!
AH...I HAVE TO GO SORT THROUGH
MY SOCKS.

Buster says SOCKS?
THAT SOUNDS LIKE FUN.

Brain says I BET WITH THE THREE
OF US, WE CAN GET THEM SORTED
IN NO TIME.

Francine says FORGET ABOUT THEM
D.W., I'LL PLAY HORSIE WITH
YOU.

D.W says IT'S NOT CALLED
HORSIE.
IT'S CALLED SEVEN DAYS IN THE
DESERT WITH WILD HORSES WHO RUN
FREE!
FREE AS THE WIND BLOWS AND A
LITTLE GIRL WHO TAMES THEM...

Francine says STOP!

(music plays)

At home, Francine says AREN'T YOU GOING
TO ASK ME IF I WANT TO COME?

Catherine says NO.
HEY FRANCINE, I WAS JUST
THINKING, DO YOU WANT TO COME
TODAY?

Francine says WELL, IF YOU'RE
GOING TO KEEP BUGGING ME, I
GUESS I'LL HAVE TO.
REMEMBER, I DON'T FEEL LIKE
RIDING.
I'M JUST GOING TO WATCH.

Catherine says SUIT YOURSELF.

Francine watches Catherine ride and jump in the paddock and sighs.

Stanley says YOUR SISTER LOOKS
LIKE SHE'S GOING TO KEEP BEING
STUBBORN.

Catherine says I GUESS SHE'S A
LITTLE JEALOUS THAT I'M A
BETTER RIDER THAN SHE IS.

Stanley says SHE'LL NEVER GET
ANY BETTER UNTIL SHE GETS ON A
HORSE.

Catherine says I THINK I HAVE AN
IDEA.

Francine says HEY BRONCO, DID
YOU MISS ME?
I SAID DID YOU MISS ME?

(HORSE NEIGHING)

Francine says THAT'S BETTER.
OH HI, I WAS JUST GOING.

She gives the horse a carrot.

Stanley says BEFORE YOU RUN OFF,
YOU MIGHT WANT TO HEAR
KATHERINE'S IDEA.

Catherine says UM, I WAS
THINKING THAT IT IS A LOT OF
WORK FOR ME TO TAKE CARE OF ALL
THESE HORSES.
ESPECIALLY AFTER SCHOOL STARTS.

Francine says SO?

Catherine says SO MAYBE YOU
COULD HELP ME OUT AND THEN I
COULD GIVE YOU A RIDING LESSON.

Francine says YOU?
TEACH ME?
OKAY, DEAL.

They shake hands.

In their bedroom, Catherine empties his piggy bank.

Francine grabs a picture of a horse on the wall and says THIS IS MY ALL
TIME FAVOURITE PICTURE.
YOU CAN HAVE IT.

Catherine says THANKS.
HEY, I'VE GOT 15 DOLLARS.
IF WE ADD IN YOUR 30 DOLLARS
AND THEN IF I CAN BABY-SIT
EVERY NIGHT FOR THE
NEXT...THREE YEARS, WE COULD
BUY A HORSE OF OUR OWN!

Francine says I GUESS WE COULD
KEEP HIM IN THE BASEMENT.
HE COULD LIVE IN THE STORAGE
BIN.
IT'S SORT OF LIKE A STALL.

Catherine says WE COULD CALL HIM
STANLEY.

Francine says I'M NOT CALLING MY
HORSE STANLEY.

Catherine says YOUR HORSE?
IT'S OUR HORSE.
IN FACT, IT'S REALLY MY HORSE
SINCE IT WILL BE MOSTLY MY
MONEY.

Francine says I'M NOT RIDING IN
THE OLYMPICS WITH A HORSE NAMED
STANLEY.

Catherine says WHO SAID YOU'RE
GOING TO THE OLYMPICS?
I'M THE BETTER RIDER.

Francine says ONLY BECAUSE YOU
HAVE LONGER LEGS.
JUST WAIT TILL I'M OLDER.
I'LL CREAM YOU.

Catherine says THE OLDER YOU
GET, THE OLDER I'LL GET.

Francine says JUST WAIT 'TIL IL
MAKE MY ACCEPTANCE SPEECH...

The girls get into a pillow fight. Their dad closes their bedroom door and smiles.

The end credits roll as the theme song plays.

The lyrics say
AND I SAY HEY! HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY IF WE COULD LEARN TO WORK AND PLAY AND GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY.
YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO YOUR HEART LISTEN TO THE BEAT LISTEN TO THE RHYTHM THE RHYTHM OF THE STREET. IT'S A SIMPLE MESSAGE AND IT COMES FROM THE HEART. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. WELL, THAT’S THE PLACE TO START. AND I SAY HEY! HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY IF WE COULD LEARN TO WORK AND PLAY AND GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY. WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY.
