Top 10 Worst Moments from Arthur

Arthur is a great show but a great show like this is not without its share of really bad and horrible moments, moments that left you either annoyed, angry or just made you feel a little uncomfortable, expect to see a lot of D.W. moments on this list.
The Top Ten
1 D.W. Crying Until Arthur Agreed to Let Her Come with Him and Dad On Their Fishing Trip (Cast Away)

The fact that Mr. and Mrs. Read prioritize DW over Arthur is absolute disgraceful. This episode proves it. Arthur was supposed to have two trips for just him and his father and DW fake cries (no tears are shown in any of the scenes from her) until she gets what she wants. At 4 years old, she should know not to throw tantrums like this. In life you cannot always get what you want. All Arthur wanted was some father son time, and because Mr. and Mrs. Read don't tell DW "no" is unacceptable. I'm not saying that Arthur is a perfect angel, as he has times when he is unlikable, but they are very far and few between. DW is almost never likable in my opinion, and this episode demonstrates just that. I think the only thing I actually like about this episode is at the end when Arthur got to see the whale at the lake, so he at least somewhat won at the end of the episode.

One of the reasons why I really hate this episode.

2 D.W. Throws a Massive Tantrum and Gets No Punishment (D.W.'s Very Bad Mood)

D.W. acts like a complete brat for the entirety of the episode and the show expects us to sympathies with her oh and she is never punished and instead gets to go to Francine's birthday party to make Lisa and her friends the girl who's party she wasn't invited to jealous.

Yeah, that's one of the reasons why D.W. sucks.

3 Arthur Bullying Sue Ellen (So Funny I Forgot to Laugh)

Even Mr. Ratburn tells Arthur that he's acting out of character.

Was not like Arthur to do that sort of thing..

4 Muffy Makes a Biased Web Video About Arthur (A is for Angry)

After Arthur gets super angry at everyone after they endlessly pester him during a rally over a checkers tournament Muffy makes a very biased web video portraying Arthur negatively and replaying the footage of him yelling at the top of his lungs.

5 D.W. receiving no punishment for wrecking Arthur's model plane (Arthur’s Big Hit)

The parents should have punishment D.W.too

This is the worst moment for Mr and Mrs Read .

6 D.W. Tricking Vicita into Using the Swear Word (Bleep)

D.W. learns a bad word after overhearing an older kid the Tibbles tell her that adults hate it because it turns them into mindless slaves not believing them she tests it out by tricking her neighbor Vicita into using the swear word while she watches to see what happens while this is happening mom readability call her down for dinner annoyed by this D.W. actually uses the swear word on her mom after seeing Vivita use the word and getting in trouble with it as D.W. then realizes that she too is in trouble as Mom shows up shocked by D.W. just said, but the most unsettling part of the episode is at the end when all the little kids begin using the swear word then thanks D.W. for teaching them the word.

7 D.W. Using Arthur as a Slave (For Whom the Bell Tolls)

D.W. loses her voice and Arthur's mom makes Arthur take care of D.W. by giving her a bell to get Arthur to do or give her anything she wants, then Arthur finds out she got her voice back and makes the foolish mistake of barging in on her as D.W. continues to fake being sick so Arthur will continue to be her slave.

8 Muffy Getting Invited to Stay with Francine and Her Family and Acts Rudely Towards Them (Poor Muffy)

One of the many reasons why I really don't like Muffy Francine is kind enough to invite Muffy to stay with her while they're fixing the carpet and Muffy acts so spoiled and rude to everyone only thinking about her needs only and this gets summed up in one line "Let me get this straight, I can't have food I like, I can't watch the T.V. Channels I Want, and now I can't play my music".

9 Francine Abuses Everyone During Rehearsal (Francine Frensky Superstar)

Everyone convinces Mr. Ratburn to give Francine a good role which she does as the lead of Thomas Edison and Francine goes way overboard bossing, and being abusive towards everyone and everyone responds by purposely ruining the show for the kindergartners bringing her to tears as she tells them they ruined her show which they remind her its not just her show, in the end they reconcile and put on the show however Francine never truly apologizes for how she acted in this episode.

10 Muffy Getting Angry at Francine for Not Attending Her Christmas Party Then Offending Her By Telling Her That Hanukkah is Not as Important as Christmas (Arthur's Perfect Christmas)
The Contenders
11 Buster Stealing a Toy (Nerves of Steal)
12 George Lundgren acting mean & bossy to his friends (The Hallway Minotaur)

Ms. Tingly is pure evil, & what worst is that George is completely out of character & at the end, he never apologize to his friends for being rude. Also, Mr. Haney should have leave Lakewood, & Binky would have been a better Hall Monitor than George!

Just a rip off of the Hey Arnold episode where Phoebe becomes a hall monitor

13 The Tibble Twins made fun of D.W. about her haircut. (D.W., The Queen of the Comeback)

It was mostly Jane Read's fault for demanding D.W. To get rid of her toys before all this happened!

14 The Tibble Twins Wrecked All of D.W.’s Toys (Never, Never, Never!)

The Tibbles are completely at their worst! I felt bad for D.W. for what for the torture

15 The Tibbles break the Reaper model Arthur borrowed from Buster (Ungifted)

I'm glad Mrs. Tibble, Their Grandma scolded them for the damage.

It wasn't their toy

16 Mr. Ratburn comes out as gay (Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone)
17 George being mean to his friends (The Hallway Minotaur)
18 Ladonna & her family moving away (When Duty Calls)

This is more like a rip off Arthur's Faraway Friend. The ending was very bad because The compsons left Elwood City. The episode would have been better if The Tibble Twins move away to Oregon instead, & Ladonna & D.W. Would be in Fern's role.

19 Buster makes fun of Arthur's glasses (Arthur's Eyes)
20 Fern bullies Francine and everybody joins in on it (Draw!)
21 Francine gets sick in the school cafeteria after making fun of George’s nosebleed (Vomitrocious!)

Not a terrible episode but the subject matter is too unnerving for me personally.

22 D.W mom makes fun of her and embarrasses her to everyone they know on purpose (Revenge Of The Chip)
23 Ladonna & her family leaving Elwood City (When Duty Calls)
24 Francine calls Arthur 4 eyes (Arthur’s Eyes)
25 D.W throws a tantrum because her puffy unicorn crunch got eaten (Cereal)
