Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • In "Arthur Makes A Movie" when Arthur was dressing up as James Hound, Francine brings him a red bowtie and Arthur complains "I can't wear that! I'll look like a clown!" Closed-captioning on CBC, however, reads "I can't wear that! I'll look like a hound!"

    • James Hound is rated PG-13, so Arthur could have gone with his dad, although I assume he only wants to see it alone. Also, Prunella says she saw the movie, but she's not 13. She's only 1 grade ahead of Arthur

    • Arthur says that James Hound's bowtie is black, but in the trailer his bowtie was red.

    • the first goof is not a goof. Arthur couldn't see the Movie because his parents said he couldn't see it.

  • QUOTES (1)

  • NOTES (2)

    • On one home video release of "Arthur Makes a Movie", the shot of the missile stopping right before it hits the White House in the Brain's fantasy is cut; instead it freeze-frames on the shot of The Brain's finger on the button as we hear Arthur's voice dubbed over saying "We did it!" before going to the parade sequence (Arthur's voice sounds notably different at this part.)

    • Peter K. Hirsch is credited as Peter Hirsch.


    • In "Go To Your Room D.W." during D.W.'s dream sequence where he is calling for a cab, the man who answers it looks like a parody to Louie, Danny Devito's character from the sitcom, Taxi.

    • In "Arthur Makes a Movie," Arthur is disappointed that he is not able to see a film featuring a character named James Hound. This character's name is a play on James Bond, a popular secret agent character first featured in novels by Ian Fleming and later in a series of films that continue to this day.
