In this episode of Arthur, Buster's dad, Bo, is shown to have a gray, fur-covered face that looks more rabbit-like. But, in the actual show of Postcards from Buster, Bo is shown to have a more humanoid face that is white and has brown hair between his rabbit ears as well.
The sidewalk artist that Buster meets, Dr. De La Vega, is actually real life street artist James De La Vega.
Why would the Unicornucopia promoters list a one-star review in their advertisement?
Buster's dad should have had enough intelligence to not park in front of a sign that said, "Don't even think of parking here". For that matter, he should have been wise enough to not attempt to park in New York City at all.
The sequence in which D.W. fantasizes about living in a hotel seems to reference two other children's book series. Kay Thompson's Eloise series is about a six-year-old girl who lives in New York's Plaza Hotel. Bernard Waber's Lyle the Crocodile series is about a friendly crocodile who lives in a New York brownstone. (Interestingly enough, Waber released a book in 1977 entitled An Anteater Named Arthur.)
Elwood City's airport is named the Katzenellenbogan Airport. Jacob Katzenellenbogan was the founder of Elwood City, as the episode "Elwood City Turns 100" pointed out.
Elwood City's Baseball Team Is The "Elwood City Grebes", a type of extinct bird (Green Tailed Grebe) first mentioned in the 100th episode celebration.
This episode gives a name for Buster's Dad: Bo Baxter.
There was no "And Now A Word From Us Kids" interstitial segment in this episode.
This special two-part episode of Arthur introduces Postcards From Buster, a new spin-off series featuring Buster on a concert tour with a band being flown around by his Dad. This series premiered in 2004.
Buster: Buster has a copy of Death of a Salesman
A copy of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman is shown sitting in Buster's house. Buster quoted from this play in the episode "Buster's Sweet Success".
