Episode Summary

"The World of Tomorrow"

Since Binky's repeating third grade, he's totally dreading Mr. Ratburn's annual class sleepover at the Science Museum. After all, he remembers how boring it was last year... wouldn't the second time around be twice as dull? But an enticing new exhibit - on visions of the future! - shows Binky that science knowledge can really come in handy.

"Is There a Doctor in the House?"

Arthur and D.W. face the ultimate challenge when Mom gets a bad cold and then... (gulp!)... gives it to Dad! What if Arthur has to take over Dad's catering business? And how will they raise Baby Kate all by themselves?moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • When we flash back to Binky with Mr. Ratburn's previous third-grade class, Prunella is not with them. Prunella had said that she was in Mr. Ratburn's class the previous year, so she should have been classmates with Binky!

      • In "The World of Tomorrow," while at the museum, Sue Ellen and George do the same thing that their look alikes did last year. Sue Ellen (and her look alike) rubs their feet on the carpet and shock Binky, at the static electricity exhibit. George (and his look alike) set off an alarm by sneaking and stealing a model car from an exhibit.

      • Viewers learn in "The World of Tomorrow" that Binky was in Mr. Ratburn's class the year before. Previously, it had only been stated that he was made to repeat third grade.

      • In Mr. Ratburn's other third grade class, the one Binky was in, there are kids that look, wear colors, and have characteristics just like Francine, Sue Ellen, Fern, Jenna, Arthur, Buster, George, and the Brain. The same thing applies to the students in Mr. Price-Jones' class.

      • In this episode, Binky hates mac'n'cheese, but in "Francine Redecorates" he says he loves mac'n'cheese!
