Top Ten Reasons to Hate Arthur

The Top Ten

1 D.W. always talks about that stupid snowball

That stupid snowball you speak of also managed to work its way into a fandom, creating an entire plot based on it. D.W talks about it for 2 reasons. First of all she cared for that snowball because as I quote "it represents her great memories of winter". she cared about that snowball taking extreme pre-cautions, she deserves the right. second of all the writers of the plot consider it to be humourous, a good plot device and will actract attention in marketing. And it did, it became one of the most memorable thing about the most memorable show in my opinion - Dhushan

That's how little kids are.

I don't know who made this list, but, sevenlizards, is that you? - Skullkid755

2 D.W. is mean to Arthur's dog

She needs to be slapped badly

Arthurs dog (pal) is a part of the family as D.W clearly stated. she even said that she cares for him. but in all families they are the squabbles, but that doesn't mean she doesn't like Pal. - Dhushan

3 People brag about Arthur way too much

If you are indicating that people brag too much about arthur as in saying "this is the greatest show", if so or anything related to that. figure it out sherlock, they are saying that because IT is a good show and the greatest in my opinion - Dhushan

Some do some don't.

4 DW is a big idiot

First of all you would be considered an idiot if you don't understand what an antagonist is. She adds a plot to the story. A some-what antagonist is what makes the story interesting. if you don't have those factors you will get a plot as bad as sesame street - Dhushan

Don't judge a show by one character.

D.W.'s an annoying and stuck-up little brat who gets into people's business, says stuff that doesn't make sense, lies and accuses people, she's a stupid idiot, AND SHE DOESN'T SHUT UP!

5 Muffy is a showoff

She is my least favorite.

Yes she can be a show off but not a lot.

As stated before, this trait is neccesary to add plot to the show. she adds personality, and that's how she is, people aren't perfect and arthur realizes that and the show showes these things and how to overcome those bad qualitites considering at each episode they are all freinds and able to come past their differences - Dhushan

6 Arthur only wear glasses so D.W. can make fun of him

Has anyone read the first Arthur book? He got glasses so he could see better! - CardboardBox

Umm... No, it was Arthur's NOSE that was the first book, not Arthur's EYES. Get it right.

That's like saying half the people in the world wear glasses so people can make fun of them, he wears glasses to improve his eyesight. in the episode where arthur is getting his glasses, he acctually tries to purposely avoid it - Dhushan

Arthur is a NERD

7 DW and Arthur are always arguing

That is what brothers and sisters are.

They probably get consequences for it if they did. Honestly, I've seen Arthur a lot as a kid and I hardly ever saw Arthur and D.W. argue.

They have argued, but it doesn't matter, they still care and love each other. agrueing doesn't make a show bad, it just adds real life elements to it. - Dhushan

8 Bad Plots

Mind it, this show was made for young ages. too complicated plots will not bring veiwers. However arthur still managed to overcome it with making good plots, easily understood, with good humor and moral lessons. each episode has its own plot that makes it intresting. if it had a bad plot how could it rise to the top of kid T.V. shows - Dhushan

9 It's boring

No. It's worse than boring. It's offensive mainly because of its parodies.

Boring is an opinion, just like my opinion of this comment is "stupid". Could arthur rise to fame if the plot was as you say, boring - Dhushan

10 Buster thinks Aliens did anything

A child's imagination. A way to show that kids can think as well. and how do you know they didn't. have any solid evidence. Buster is just thinking, creating, more then most people acctually. - Dhushan

The Contenders

11 Brain is such a know-it-all

True but he is still a good friend.

There will always be know-it-alls. So get over them!

12 Buster thinks aliens do everything

He's 8 years old that's what 8 year olds do.

13 Francine is mean

Francine is another one of my least favourite characters in this dumb show! SHE'S A HORRIBLE AND IDIOTIC WITCH! Why would Arthur or the other characters want to be friends with her? She's a selfish and self-centered hypocrite who enjoys bullying others! She picks on others whether they wear glasses or their loose teeth haven't come out yet (mainly Arthur), she insults and offends people, she forces people to do stuff they don't want to be part of, and SHE COULDN'T CARE LESS ABOUT IT! She must really enjoy picking on others doesn't she? When Arthur first wore glasses she picked on him and called him "four-eyes", when he had a loose tooth she called him a baby and made the others join her in bullying him. What an idiot! Francine deserves to get Power-Up Punched in the face and beaten up by a Lucario and frozen solid by a Lapras' Ice Beam just to shut her trap!

If Francine was constantly picking on me for wearing glasses or having a loose tooth, I'd teach her a lesson by using my Drapion and threatening to feed her to it if she kept up the bullying.

Tell me about it. I mean, what's up with her attitude? If I'm Arthur, I'd end my friendship with her. Not that I like him more.

She is still a good friend.

19 DW's voice

What I hate about DW's voice is her scream. In fact, I've hated high-pitched screams from kids and girl-turned-women since I was younger.

20 Bad artwork

Whoever can't stand those who like this list ugly and shouldn't be here EVER.

Who ever likes this list is ugly.
