    Notes (3)

    • This episode is dedicated "in memory of Pat Harris, friend & colleague." and Jennifer Kirk is the daughter of Pat Harris who this episode was dedicated to.

    • We learn Jenna's last name in "The Good Sport." It's Morgan.

    • Interstitial (Real Kids Segment) Jennifer Kirk, Junior World Champion figure skater, demonstrates the art and dedication of her sport.

    Trivia (5)

    • Arthur brought a sleeping bag to sleep over Buster's house, but Buster has a bunk bed.

    • Arthur and his friends must really have a problem with sheep, because "Crushed" is the second time that one has been portrayed as a villain. The first was in "Sue Ellen Gets Her Goose Cooked," when Buster thought that FOURHAND451 was a mutant sheep.

    • When he found out Sally's high score in "Dark Bunny VI," Arthur fidgets with glasses when saying that his score is higher. As seen in previous episodes, this unconscious tell of Arthur's indicates that he's lying.

    • In "Crushed," Sally and Arthur play "Dark Bunny VI," but Dark Bunny is a new show, a very recent spin-off of Bionic Bunny. It's not possible that six games were created that fast.

    • In "The Good Sport," D.W. says that she never meets anyone famous, but she has met Mister Rogers, the President of the United States, Yo-Yo Ma, and Joshua Redman.

    Allusions (1)

    • In the beginning of "Crushed," Buster looks into the camera and says "Roll the tape, Greg." Buster is addressing Greg Bailey, the director of Arthur.
