  • #100401 "Feeling Flush"A drought comes to Elwood City, so residents are asked to conserve water. Due to their families' bad habits of wasting it, Francine and Arthur make a bet on whose family can use less water in one week. However, Francine soon finds that someone in her home doesn't seem to be living up the challenge, but she's not sure who. It becomes a sort of rivalry between Arthur and Francine, but despite Francine's best efforts, she finds herself losing. #100402 "Family Fortune"Arthur and Grandma Thora are fans of the show Treasure Caravan, so when it's announced that the show is coming to Elwood City, everyone begins rummaging for their most valuable possessions. Arthur has high hopes that an old chair found in Thora's attic, very similar to one that fetched a high price on the show, will be just as valuable, or more. Meanwhile, Muffy is eager to show off a necklace that's been passed down in her family, but it is in for a surprise.moreless
