  • Episode Description
  • #100901 "Do You Speak George?"Kids at school begin to make up their own languages. Arthur and Buster create "Arster-Buther", and Francine and Muffy create "Oola". George, however, feels left out because he can't understand any of it, due to his Dyslexia, so he comes up with a language of his own, a language without words. #100902 "World Girls"A new line of dolls has come out. The "World Girls", figurines dressed to represent every nationality, are the new trend, and when the new superstore "World Girl World" opens, Muffy is determined to buy every single one, and brings along Francine, who is not particularly interested in it, and Sue Ellen, who has her heart set on finding only one specific doll, Pema. When she finds out that Pema was discontinued she also learns that they also canceled out Little Tibet altogether.moreless

    • Sue Ellen: They make them so quickly. Francine: One after another.

    • Muffy: Ludmila? The Estonian girl. Where's Estonia? I've never even heard of it.

    • Francine: For the last time, you can count me out. I don't play with dolls, remember? Muffy: World Girl isn't about playing. Francine: I know. I know. It's about collecting. But I'd rather spend my time and money on real things.

    • Sue Ellen: The point is connecting --- connecting to cultures. Muffy: What's the fun in that?

    • Muffy: You're going to die when you see what I've done with my closet. I've made it into a true World Girl World. Tada!

    Notes (1)

    • This is the first time that we've heard the voice of and had an episode focused on Sue Ellen after being absent from all of season 9. She appears in both "Do You Speak George?" and "World Girls."

    Trivia (5)

    • While playing marbles, Buster tells Arthur to use his thumb for more power, but the only to play marbles is with your thumb.

    • In "World Girls", Muffy sees Ludmila, the Estonian worldgirl doll at Worldgirl World. She says she's never even heard of the doll or Estonia, but later on, when Sue Ellen pulls the Pema book (which came with the Pema doll) from Muffy's shelf, you can see the Ludmila book behind it, meaning that Muffy must have owned the Ludmila doll.

    • Hilary Illick joins the show staff as the writer for "World Girls."

    • Real-Kids Segment: A deaf-boy named Colin intros the segment in sign language and then an interpreter explains that he's deaf. He tells viewers about his school, shows them his horseback-riding class, speaks on a videophone with his friend Tom and introduces his family.

    • Both stories use the slot-machine title card. The first time, it lands on George and the second on Muffy. Binky reads the title card for "Can You Speak George?" while Francine reads the title card for "World Girls."

    Allusions (1)

    • The World Girls are very similar to American Girl, a line of 18 inch dolls that come from historical time periods. American Girl also has stores, located in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. There is also a series of books based on these characters.
