Best Arthur Episodes

The Top Ten

1 April 9th

The best in my opinion - andrewteel

Great it has a greater plot and meaning. Has great laugh out loud moments too.

It has been 7 years since I saw Arthur. This is the only episode I remember.

It has such a great plot! It rings true!

2 Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival

HAvInG fUn IsN't HaRd WhEn YoU gOt A lIbRaRy CaRd1!

I used to reenact this all the time as a kid!

How can you not love this episode? It includes some of the greatest songs to come out of the entire series, as well as a wide variety of characters. All around entertaining, fun and magnificent. I am 18 years old, just graduated from high school and I watch this on a regular basis.

"What's so great about being real? " - Our Beloved Buster Baxter.

The Library Card Song was FANTASTIC! Also not ALL of it, but some parts were a parody of the theme song for The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.

3 Arthur's First Sleepover

This was a hilarious episode! Alongside "The Ballad of Buster Baxter" (Another great episode) this episode could've EASILY failed to be a bad episode. For example, D.W. wants to go out with them to try and scare Arthur and his friends, they scare her back. She tries to get back at them but a UFO (It has meaning in the episode, just watch it) D.W wants picture of it to get rich and famous but it was all a gag played by Arthur and his friends, which makes D.W. sad. But then they feel bad and invite her to join them. That was just BEAUTIFUL. Like I said, this episode had a tricky road to drive on. They just drove perfectly down that road. One of my all time favorites. Up there with "April 9th" and "Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival." Well done Arthur writers, Well done.

I will love this show until the day I die. - BKAllmighty

Its funny and I've watched millions of time because of how good it is

I have the book.

4 D.W.'s Snow Mystery

Great mystery and plot, but D.W. went instaDemon when blaming Arthur. Look at her eyebrows.

I LOVE this episode its so funny DW says arthur stole her snow ball UHOH!

D.W. complaing about her sowball made the show funnier. I may hate DW for being so annoying. But when ever she blames Arthur for something I can't help but laugh at it. This episode was great!

5 Arthur Makes a Movie

I love this one!

6 Elwood City Turns 100

It is the best season 7 episode it almost makes up for the abomination we all know as cast away

It shows us how we need to work together and trust others

It surprisingly catchy and fun songs. the humor is wonderful. Brain and Buster have a great conflict. Jacob Casasomething is hilarious. "Why did you make me so fat? "

7 D.W.'s Library Card

I really love this episode... It reminds me of when I first got my library card. I was so happy at that time. I find it sort of weird that you have to be able to write your full name though. It wasn't like that for me

DW:"My full name is Dora Winifred Read. I barely even say it, how am I supposed to spell it? "

Tommy Tibble:"Just be glad you aren't Aloysius Zimmerplotz! "

8 Arthur, It's Only Rock and Roll

Amazing movie/episode! So GOOD

I absolutely love basically all Arthur episodes, but I think this one is my favorite

This special is my absolute favorite thing in the Arthur universe. It doesn't just feel like an extended episode like the two following specials do. This feels like a T.V. special and it’s great. The music is great. This special made me want to start a band. I tried to but starting a band is not easy. Also this special tricked me into thinking the Backstreet Boys were a rock band...they’re not. This is a great special that had a great imponderable me.

This involves the Backstreet Boys... what's not to love!

9 Draw!
10 Arthur's Knee

Arthur gets himself in some trouble. - Hernandez1614

He cut his knee like the absolute aardvark waffle he is

I love that episode it's so good!

It is really great.
It taught us a lesson to.
Reminds me when I fell off my bike!

The Contenders

11 Arthur's Big Hit

This episode is a really bad way to start off the fourth season

About the only highlight of this episode was Arthur punching D.W. which was totally deserved, and notice that it takes a few seconds before she actually started crying when he hit her knocking her down to the ground completely emotionless then after a few seconds she starts crying. - egnomac

Arthur hits D.W. bEST EPISODE EVER! Even better, Binky punches Arthur too! :D Hands down, a great episode.

My personal favorite Arthur episode. And one of my favorite cartoon episodes to be honest. - ashduck

12 The Ballad of Buster Baxter

This is the story of the face on the cake. His name is Buster Baxter...

Whoops. I said it was sad and happy for "Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival" I was talking about this one. Poor Buster... - MudWing

An all time great Arthur epsiode presented in two parts, featuring Art Garfunkel, represented by a singing moose.

Best episode ever

13 Locked In the Library

My only real complaint in the episode is when Miss Turner and their parent's find them in the lounge and says "I don't know this could've happened! " really Miss Turner you saw them as they walked in and even told them what time the Library closed and didn't even bother to check if they were still in the Library before closing. - egnomac

This episode is a classic! It's what comes to mind when I remember my childhood with Arthur.

Such a nostalgic episode! Great plot and witty jokes/ - milmcgirl

Classic early Arthur!

14 The Blizzard

Classic early arthur episode

15 Arthur's Perfect Christmas

I liked it when Arthur was riding Rory around the house like a horse

This makes me love life, please share if you agree. Arhur is bae. Muffy is so hot

16 Binky Rules

Lets all admit that that song is still stuck in all of our heads...

17 Buster Makes the Grade

I like that episode. It shows people how to study for tests and exams and why it is important. And my friend is planning to make a YouTube Poop called "Arthur learns about trigonometry" or "Arthur learns about SOHCAHTOA" I don't know which one it will be called. But the YouTube Poop will be based on this episode.

Really funny episode! - ConorDooley

18 The Last Tough Customers
19 The Chips Are Down

The Green Potato Chip D.W. thinks is poisoned. - Hernandez1614

I like this episode. Not my fave though

This episode is about D.W. and Binky preparing for death all because they thought green potato chips were poisonous. Unusual for a children’s show but at the same time clever. “See ya Herb! ”

The cute d.w. did fun activities

20 D.W. the Copycat


21 Grandpa Dave's Old Country Farm
22 The Great MacGrady

This episodes really handles cancer well in a way kids will understand.

23 Desk Wars

This episode was so good...

It's the domino affect how everyone reacts to the heat and one thing leads to the other and at the ends it's complete chaos that eventually gets resolved. Everyone s personality shines and everyone has an important part in the episode especially George.

This should definitely be higher.It had such a good plot and I still enjoy it! - milmcgirl

24 The Boy who Cried Comet
25 Arthur Meets Mister Rogers

Very funny and good moral

26 D.W. Gets Lost
27 Fern's Slumber Party

To Be Honest, Fern is my favorite minor character.

Such a fun plot with character development. - milmcgirl

28 Arthur's Almost Boring Day

Dw is the star and makes it the best video for me.

29 Bossy Boots
30 That's a Baby Show

I watched a YouTube Poop of that episode in which Love Ducks was changed to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Mary Moo Cow was changed to Super Why. I saw another on where Mary Moo Cow was changed to Barney and the Love Ducks was changed to Teletubbies. - andrewteel

I watched a YouTube Poop of that episode in which Mary Moo Cow was changed to The Triplets, Dark Bunny was changed to WordGirl, and the Love Ducks was changed to Peg + Cat. I saw another YouTube
Poop in which Mary Moo Cow was changed to Barney, and the Love Ducks was changed to Teletubbies. My friend is planning to make a YouTube Poop in which Mary Moo Cow is changed to The Backyardigans, Dark Bunny is changed to Adventure Time, and the Love ducks is changed to Dragon Tales.

My friend is planning to make a YouTube Poop in which Dark Bunny is changed to Sailor Moon, Mary Moo Cow is changed to the Backyardigans, and the Love Ducks is changed to Dragon Tales.

I watched a YouTube poop where the Dark Bunny was changed to Family Guy and Love Ducks was changed to My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic - Ihateschool

31 Arthur Writes a Story
32 Attack of the Turbo Tibbles
33 Bleep

The “Sailor Mouth” of Arthur episodes

This episode was so boring. - Curtis_Huber

34 Kiss and Tell

Great Arthur episode! Even better than Bleep! It's a good Arthur episode, especially the plot, and it's good too! It's kind of like a fairy tale episode, since D.W. tries to get James to kiss her. D.W. thought it would be so easy to kiss him, but no matter how hard D.W. tried, James didn't notice her. I wouldn't blame James, because he didn't know what D.W. was trying to do. Kiss and Tell is a good, fictional episode, just like the episode Just Desserts, featuring fictional events. A really good Arthur episode.

35 Nerves of Steal
36 Brother Can You Spare a Clarinet?

This episode is hilarious it shows that anyone can make it work!

37 Arthur vs. the Very Mean Crossing Guard

Very funny and makes everyone's day

38 Arthur and the Crunch Cereal Contest

Munch munch munch I have it for dinner and lunch It would be so fun to munch if I have It with crunch

39 Buster Baxter, Cat Saver

The perfect blend of character development hilarious, bizarre humor is what makes this episode (and the whole show) one of a kind.

40 Pet Peeved
41 When Carl Met George

Kid with ass burgers freaks out over giraffe


42 D.W. The Picky Eater

I'm a picky eater like DW - Ihateschool

This episode is a PERFECT example of how to do a D.W. jerkface episode right. At a restaurant Mr and Mrs Read order D.W. a salad, she starts taking it apart and the cucumbers and mushrooms away from it but when she sees spinach she loses it. The waiter asked her if something is/was wrong and she yelled “This salad has spinach aND I HATE SPINACH! ” She banged the bowl so hard that it landed on the waiters head causing a commotion of gasps in the restaurant. D.W. goes “Uh. Oh.” The waiter than (hilariously! ) says “ THAT’S IT, I QUIT! ” Mrs Reed was so pissed she even referred to her by her FULL NAME. She literally said, “Dora Wenifield Read! ” Her punishment was no more restaurants. They left because people were giving hem looks. The episode continues of Arthur trying to loosen her up. This is how you do a Jerkface episode RIGHT. Now for a lesson that Writers Zeus and Casey from seasons 6-8 spongebob and some of the Arthur writers, if you’re going to have a jerkface ...more

43 Buster's New Friend

Love that episode. buster makes a new friend that's been distracting him from some project and arthur soon become jealous!

44 Hide & Snake

An actual snake came into Arthur's house, and his friends try to find the snake. It's so funny when Mrs. Read said for D.W. to get the snake out of Pal's bowl, and she started out, for a snake in some dog bowl?! Well that's an urgent episode for an early season 4 episode. And the title goes so good for the name "Hide and Snake", because Arthur found a snake in his shirt, when his friends were playing hide and sneek.

45 Big Brother Binky

This episode is great and everybody should vote for this one. It's about when the Barnes family go to China and adopt a baby.

46 How the Cookie Crumbles
47 Bully for Binky

Really developed Sue Ellen, one of the series' best character's, character

48 Arthur Makes the Team
49 D.W's Bleep

Is anyone else wondering why this is up here twice?
