Top Ten Worst Arthur Episodes

The Top Ten

1 So Funny I Forgot To Laugh

Okay, many MANY problems with this EPISODE for many MANY reasons. This isn't the only time Arthur was such a prick in these episodes. Episodes like "Arthur's Big Hit" or when he was making fun of Francine in bad hair day. If I were Sue Ellen, I'd slap the hell outta him
1. Arthur took a simple sweater that Sue Ellen was wearing too far.
2. He kept teasing her about it
3. He claims that SHE should apologize to HIM, like SHE can help taking all that nonsense.
4. He lies that Sue Ellen didn't tell him to stop, while when she did, he was all, "Ooh, it was only a danm joke! "
5. He writes this letter saying "Ooh, maybe you're just OVER REACTING! " I feel like slapping that Arthur right on his nerdy stupid face. I cannot believe his parents would raise such a heartless bully! , He's even worse than D.W!
6. He gets mad when everyone gives him the silent treatment while he brought that upon himself.
7. He makes an image of sue ellen with the head of a sheep dog and makes ...more

Arthur was a heartless bully in So Funny I Forgot To Laugh and this isn't the only time he's done this, especially in episodes like Arthur's Big Hit where he hits D.W and he knows that Sue Ellen told him to stop. Yet he claims that SHE should apologize to HIM while HE WAS the one who took the whole sheepdog thing way too far, and lies right to Buster's face that she didn't tell him to stop. Than he writes this apology letter saying that when he got bullied for wearing glasses, he didn't feel that he needed to tell Mr. Ratburn just to get Francine into trouble(by the way she was calling Arthur a four eyes) and then he ends it off by saying that she's overreacting. Then he starts giving attitude because nobody wants to speak to him anymore.

This episode is the equivalent of Stuck in the Wringer and comes very close to A Pal for Gary

Would had made more sense if the bully of the episode was Binky, Muffy, or even a new character. I wan Arthur to be less wimpy just like the earlier seasons but not as a bully like in this episode.

2 Arthur's Big Hit

This is one the worst episodes of the show. Just as bad as some of Family Guy's episodes like Not all Dogs go to Heaven and Quagmire's Dad. The way they portray the characters was stupid. For me, the worst thing about this episode is that they expect us to feel bad for D.W., where in actuality, it's satisfying to see her get punch since she's clearly the most unlikable character in the whole show, all while the episode is making Arthur out like he's the bad guy for his action, where in actuality, Arthur's the only relatable character in the entire episode. Just, how can you blame him for having moment like this when he was given everything reason? I said enough here, everything wrong with this episode in right in the blue. It's annoying, mean-spirited, and a complete failure of what they were trying to do, as well as the show itself.

Um, no. This episode is very hated and at it's worst, because D.W's in the wrong here. I mean, sure Arthur punching his little sister was a terrible thing but he told D.W a million times to stop touching his plane and he punched his sister for it and got into trouble. If the episode was a lot more as brutal as "So Funny I Forgot To Laugh", then nobody would speak to him and they'd all start avoiding him like what Binky was doing. I mean, yeah. You're not suppose to hit your younger siblings. But cut Arthur some slack for god's sake. He worked so hard on it and it hasn't even lasted a day. So why blame Arthur? I mean, come on. Just because D.W's the youngest, doesn't mean she always has to get away with everything. And also, I made a mistake. No. Kate's the youngest.

Definitely the worst in my opinion after what happened when I hit my cousin many years ago along with that infamous Dragon Tales episode "No Hitter"!

Not to sound like a jerk or anything but that brat had it coming. - egnomac

3 D.W.'s Very Bad Mood

D.W. At her absolute worst, in the episode D.W. throws a massive tantrum all because she didn't get invited to a birthday party and even worst she's never punished for anything that she does in this episode. - egnomac

Just as Mr. Enter said it is hard to sympathies with a character who is clearly unlikable - Fazbear97

Why did D.W. cry after Francine ask her “What’s the matter? ”?

What I want to know is, how am I supposed to sympathize with D.W.? No really. Not because she’s a jerk. D.W. Didn’t get invited to a birthday party for a girl she doesn’t even LIKE and at the party they were going to see a movie that she’s seen TWICE. Just HOW am I supposed to sympathize with this brat? One of the worst Arthur episodes

4 Play It Again, D.W.

This episode made me want to destroy that Crazy Bus CD along with that boombox with a steel baseball bat and throw the pieces in a volcano! I would also let loose a lion to maul that little Disaster Warning and eat her! I also blame Arthur's parents for not doing anything to make DW stop playing that horrible song or even punish her for constantly playing it in the house without stopping. If I were the parent I would confiscate that CD and boombox and not let DW play her dumb song for months. If she throws a fit I don't care because I'll let a rattlesnake bite her to shut her up.

Imagine If D.W. Played the waffles song from Teen Titans Go

Must the worst episode ever dw ruins the trip for Arthur and then gets famous too. Dw is most hated charter ever I hope to never watch this episode again - princepretty

This episode is worse than every single squidward torture episode. D.W. plays her cd none stop and it’s also a Mr and Mrs Reed jerkface episode.

5 Looking For Bonnie

This was just on T.V. a couple days ago and I hated it. George and Buster strum the guitar and then go on an acid trip involving environmentalism and aliens. Weird.

Why is this on the list on just saw it's not that bad you is this episode so hated. the fact it was so hated that it was replace with the secret guardians before the secret origin of supernova why! it's not that bad I like the episode more then plat it again, D.W.

6 Return of the Snowball

Terrible follow up to D.W.'s Snow Mystery,her snowball mysteriously reappears and despite having it back she still believes Arthur took it and worries he'll steal it again as she goes to extreme measures in trying to keep it safe. - egnomac

7 Read And Flumberghast

D.W sues the Tibbles for stealing a cupcake. "Oh my god, who the hell cares! " Peter Griffin. - Fazbear97

8 Follow the Bouncing Ball

Boring, and has no purpose

9 Cast Away

Dw is not fair
Me is fair you brat
Dw is not
Me it is you ruined Arthur last weeken
Me hey Arthur mom & dad hget your lazy but be a Parent
Arthur dad what do you want us to do
Me tell Dw no & stop this right now or no weekend time for you ever

I think DW can be funny and entertaining but her behavior in this and some other episodes would make Caillou blush.

Absolute disaster of an episode consisting of D.W getting her way through temper tantrums, Dad giving in and never being punished for any of her awful behavior.

D.W in this episode really makes this episode so unwatchable :P - Matthew_1996

10 To Eat or Not To Eat

Boring and overplayed.

The Contenders

11 S.W.E.A.T.
12 Buster The Lounge Lizard
13 Go to Your Room, D.W.

This episode shows how D.W. gets punished and lies about being treated like a slave by her brother and parents after she blames her baby sister! She thinks those events did happen to her, when in real life...THEY DIDN'T!

D.W.: I have the meanest parents in the whole world. All they do is punish me and make me work like a slave girl. First I had to stay up all night and take care of Arthur when he had a cold, and finally when my cousin Lucy was getting married, I had to stay home to cook, and clean while everyone else when to the wedding. It's so sad being me.

Me: Seriously? ARE YOU EVEN HEARING YOURSELF OR ARE YOU JUST PLAIN STUPID!?!?!?! Those events never even happened to you and your just making that stuff up you idiot!

D.W.: I'm not making anything up! Those things did happen to me. Who's side are you on?

Me: I'm on the side that involves me taking a lie detector test on you for making those idiotic excuses runt!

D.W.: How do you think I'm making ...more

14 Vomitrocious

This is an episode I refuse to watch! The topic of this episode makes people who are like me emetaphobic anxious and very uncomfortable. I hate just thinking about it!

Did they have to dedicate an entire episode to vomit!? I love the series but they didn't have to do this episode. I only watched a little bit of this episode and I will never go back and finish it. Shows like Clifford The Big Red Dog, Curious George and The Berenstein Bears never did an episode like this so why should Arthur. If you like me are emetophobic (a fear of vomiting) or hematophobic (a fear of blood) don't watch this episode. There are so many better ones like Arthur's Family Vacation, Grandpa Dave's Old Country Farm, The Chips Are Down, The Cave, Best Of The Nest, Elwood City Turns 100, Postcards From Buster, Arthur Weighs In, Happy Anniversary, etc. I wish this episode didn't exist.

15 D.W.'s Stray Netkitten
16 The Election

Muffy is just so insufferable in this episode as she and Arthur run for class president and goes to extreme measures to ensure she wins the election only for Binky to be allowed to enter the running for class president and actually wins and she becomes incredibly bitter about it and blames Arthur for allowing Binky to run. - egnomac

17 Nerves of Steal

Buster really wants a new toy that everyone except him and Arthur have his mom tells him hell get one for his birthday but Buster really doesn't want to wait so while at the drug store where Arthur and his family are shopping at stuffs the toy in Arthur's backpack without him knowing, eventually the guilt gets to him and shows up at Arthur's house and shows him the stolen toy Arthur is understandingly upset with Buster for almost getting him in trouble but rather than tell his parents what Buster did they decide to cover it up and return the toy without anyone knowing, they show up the next day with a note but find out all the toys are gone and if they leave it there the store owner will know they took it so one of them distracts the owner while the other hides the toy they almost get off scot free but the toy mysteriously starts walking the owner see's the toy and the note and the boys eventually fess up and are busted, though the episode teaches that stealing is wrong just the way ...more - egnomac


This episode has it all messed up. Before I get into the plot, there are (Many) plot holes and problems. I need to mention

1. The Cyber toys don't have a remote control and were moving on their own 2. Francine said the Cyber Toys were at the TOY store but were at the drugstore 3. WHY would a drugstore have a very popular toy everyone wants? 4. Buster is telling the story to Brain, but there is no voice-over, 5. Jim (the drugstore owner) accuses both Buster and Arthur for stealing when Buster clearly confessed saying it was all him 6. Arthur's parents are disappointed in him when he didn't tell them what Buster did (Arthur did the right thing by telling Buster to return the toy and still got in TROUBLE WITH HIS OWN PARENTS) 7. Brain said he got his Cyber Toy for his birthday when he already had one 8. When Jim asked the boys what they came there for they said for jawbreakers when they clearly could have said cyber toys. 9. Throughout the episode you forget that Buster's telling ...more

18 Love Notes for Muffy

Brain gets angry at Muffy thinking she's going to win the science fair after bribing the judges, in an out of character moment he and Francine send a fake love letter to Muffy as revenge which makes no sense and things spiral out of control when Muffy sends a love letter to the person she thinks send the letter and both Brain and Francine realize the might get muffy in trouble with the person who she sent the letter in the end Muffy doesn't even win the science fair so they basically did all this for nothing. - egnomac

Muffy’s crush is a man her species way older than her who wears a bright Blue speedo... Enough said

19 Arthur the Loser

This episodes solution is to help the person, by cheating for them. Writers please do not have your solutions like this, this happened in MLP's Boast Busters. - Fazbear97

20 The Big Blow Up
21 Buster Hits the Books

Terrible, nonsensical, just a bad episode

22 Flippity Francine
23 Postcards From Buster, Parts I & II
24 Draw

Francine was being a jerk but she didn't deserve it, please don't go after me I think seasons 1-3 aren't that good. But that's my opinion and if you think it's good that's great it's just my personal opinion. I don't watch those seasons that much but I like a few episodes. This is my opinion.

Hey furs there a new world it call a Opinion

I feel so mad because Arthur and the gang payback Francine JUST BY USING A SANDWICH AS A PUPPET?! Fern,Binky,Buster,Arthur,Brain,Muffy,and Sue Ellen are big IDIOTS AND JERKS! Francine might have been mean but a least she told the truth about a puppet! I ADMIT SEASONS 1-3 ARE SO DUMB AND THE MOST STUPID SEASONS EVER EXCEPT FOR SOME EPISODES! THIS EPISODE SHOULD BE ON NUMBER 1!

25 Get Smart

Very annoying, boring, and overplayed.

The company gave you the computer to TRY out for LEARNING. NOT to prove it WRONG because you’re an @$$hole Ratburn.

This episode is LITERALLY watching Ratburn and his class try to outsmart SIRI. I mean, REALLY? You couldn’t think of a better plot idea with a computer? Also Ratburn is a REAL jerk in this episode. (More than usual) He thinks he’s the smartest man on Earth. Now about the ending, they prove Hugo (Arthur’s version of Siri) wrong and he (the computer/smartboard) EXPLODES. That was NOT an appropriate ending for a kids show episode.
