  • #70701"Prunella Sees the Light "To make everything perfect for her sleepover with Marina, Prunella happily styles her room to resemble a "Henry Skreever" book. But then she panics - since Marina is blind, will decorations she can't even see offend her... or worse, make her trip? Or will Prunella discover that her worries about protecting Marina - and their friendship - are more about Prunella's own perceptions rather than Marina's actual capabilities?#70702"Return of the Snowball"For six months, two weeks and four days, D.W.has been trying to solve the mystery of her snowball's disappearance.

    • Arthur: (in Star Wars style) There is unrest in the read home. D.W. still thinks about the snowball all the time, and won't shut up about it. D.W.: Arthur stole my snowball from the freezer. I know it was him! Arthur: Quiet, D.W. I'm the narrator! (Star Wars style again) To combat the dark side of D.W., Arthur has... D.W.: Mom! Arthur: Ignore her. (Star Wars style again) As I was saying... Mrs. Read: Arthur, let your sister talk. Arthur: But it's about the snowball!!! Mrs. Read: Oh, no! That again? D.W.: What do you mean "that again?!"

    Notes (6)

    • In "Prunella Sees the Light, "viewers" learn that Marina attends Mighty Mountain, Arthur's rival school.

    • And Now a Word from Us Kids: A boy named Ty who has prosthetics for legs, shows how he manages and gets around.

    • The Star Wars-like scrolling words also appeared in "Best of the Nest".

    • There's a Star Trek Voyager skit, Prunella finds herself as Captain Janeway, Binky finds himself as Tuvok and Muffy find herself as Seven of Nine, of course, Muffy tries to kill Prunella, then Prunella runs to the turbolift then she finds herself as her again.

    • D.W. discovered her snowball was missing in "D.W.'s Snow Mystery" and it has been a recurring gag on the Arthur series ever since. If viewers are to believe the ending of that episode, aliens took D.W.'s snowball and have now mysteriously returned it.
