  • i love this Ep

    This Ep is great. I love it how D.W is terrifed of the water because of the Octupuses. Its so funny especially when she trys to swim out to save Arthur. The real reason I like this ep is becuase of Busters bathing cap. I want one it is really stylin. I also like it how buster steals a Dino foot print. I like his dream where it comes out of his closet. I always wanted to go on a field trip like that too, but class always went to the Opera House never any where cool like on Arthur.moreless
