Best Arthur Episodes

Arthur is a 1996 animated television series that revolves around the life of an anthropomorphic aardvark named Arthur Read, and his interactions with his friends and family.
The Top Ten
1 April 9th

Arthur's school gets burned down by a fire and has to go to mighty mountain to learn until somebody pulls the alarm at mighty mountain. It's a cliff hanger!

This episode probably has the strongest of everything for Arthur yet,this is better than all the other arthur episodes by a landslide.

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

2 Arthur's Almost Live Not Real Music Festival

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.

Having fun isn't hard,
When you've got a library card.
Having fun isn't hard,
When you've got a library card.

That's in my opinion the best song in this episode.

Bro, this was the best episode of the entire show. I remember watching this special as a kid. My favorite was the library card song and that food song from Mr. Read.
Man, this show was my childhood

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.

4 D.W.'s Snow Mystery

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!

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

After too many arguments and accusations, D.W. finally lets the incident go

5 Elwood City Turns 100

It's a great honor that Elwood city is 100! And celebrating that even though Jacob Catsonallenbogen isn't alive it's great the Elwood is still standing.

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? "

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

6 Arthur Makes a Movie

While the filming goes wrong, they end up enjoying their outtakes

7 Arthur, It's Only Rock and Roll

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 was one of my favorite episodes of all time. I saw this when I was younger and I still remember when the Backstreet Boys were singing I Want It My Way and Muffy was running towards them trying to get some attention from them was one of my favorite parts.

8 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.

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

9 Draw!
10 Arthur's Big Hit

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.

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

It teaches Arthur a lesson on how D.W felt when Arthur hit her find out who hits Arthur!

The Contenders
11 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

12 The Blizzard
13 The Last Tough Customers

A long time ago Molly got bullied so when she became older she turned into a bully when James bullied someone else it brought Molly back to when she got bullied so then she decided to say sorry.

14 Binky Rules

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

15 Arthur's Knee

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

Arthur gets himself in some trouble.

I love that episode it's so good!

16 Bleep

Ok, this is one of my favorite episodes because D.W heard a kid say a bad word and didn't know it was a bad word so then tricks Vicita to say it to her family then D.W ends up getting in trouble for telling Vicita to do that. This taught me to not say bad words.

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.

18 Arthur's Perfect Christmas

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

I always watch this near Christmas it shows kindness,caring and I think it's very joyful and christmasy.

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

19 Happy Anniversary
20 Fifteen
21 D.W. the Copycat

So funny when D.W decides to turn into Arthur she just looks dweeby as a girl acting like a boy.

22 Grandpa Dave's Old Country Farm
23 The Chips Are Down

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! "

I like this episode. Not my fave though

24 The Great MacGrady

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