  • Good Episode

    I think that this episode of Arthur was a very good episode. So far as of May 18, 2006 to me this has been the best episode of the season. Both of the stories in this episode were very good. The first story was about conserving water. Francine and Arthur had a contest to see who could save the most water. Arthur won but only because Francine's cat Nemo was flushing the toilet. The second story was about Arthur and his family going on a tv show similar to Antiques Roadshow. One of the parts that was funny to me in this episode was when Muffy's great grandmother got tricked by the rat and the rat turned out to be a man. Overall this was a good episode.
  • Drought

    "Feeling Flush"
    A drought comes to Elwood City, so residents are asked to conserve water. Due to their families' bad habits of wasting it, Francine and Arthur make a bet on whose family can use less water in one week. However, Francine soon finds that someone in her home doesn't seem to be living up the challenge, but she's not sure who. It becomes a sort of rivalry between Arthur and Francine, but despite Francine's best efforts, she finds herself losing.


    "Family Fortune"

    Arthur and Grandma Thora are fans of the show Treasure Caravan, so when it's announced that the show is coming to Elwood City, everyone begins rummaging for their most valuable possessions. Arthur has high hopes that an old chair found in Thora's attic, very similar to one that fetched a high price on the show, will be just as valuable, or more. Meanwhile, Muffy is eager to show off a necklace that's been passed down in her family, but it is in for a surprise.
  • Arthur and francine conserve water. Arthur goes on an antique show.

    The first episode was about Arthur and Francine trying to see who could save the most water. Francie does everything she can to save water, but nothing seems to work until they wind out Nemo has been flushing the toilet regularly.

    The second episode is about a tv antique show that Grandman and Arthur watch. On the show a chair bought for 10$ sells for 35000$ Arthur and his friends plan to sell stuff they think is valueable. While arthur cleans out the atic with D.W and Grandma Thora, they discover a chiar that looks exactly like the one that sold for 35000$. When they arrive at the show, muffy lears that her jewlary is plastic, and arhtur learns that the chiars is form 1970 not 1790. However kate is holding and indian gift witch they learn would sell for 5000$ Arthur out of greed tries to take it form kate, but when she starts crying he decide to let her keep it. This eppisode also is funny such as wehn Muffy says "It's so sad when money gets in the way of family" This is funny becsue it is so anti muffy.

    Overall this is a great set of episodes
