    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (7)

      • In "Mis-fortune Teller", when Arthur, Francine, and Muffy go see Prunella, Francine is ahead of Muffy and Arthur (she knocks on the door), but in the next shot, she is standing behind Arthur and Muffy.

      • Buster is the only one who dresses up for Prunella's half-birthday party in "Mis-fortune Teller."

      • When Ms. Krasny first walks in the music class, Arthur is sitting at the piano, which on the same side as everyone else, right next to Buster; but when the camera switches to Ms. Krasny, the piano is on the other side of the room, next to the door. Then it's right back next to Buster.

      • While in music class, the girl sitting next to Sue Ellen has a blank, happy look on her face. Then in the very next shot, her mood changes to angry and she's frowning, for no apparent reason.

      • Predictions made by the Cootie Catcher:

        • That Francine will play professional football when she gets older
        • That Buster will get an A on the geography test
