During the scene in "That's a Baby Show!" where Buster and Francine catch Arthur watching The Love Ducks, when the show goes off, the theme song from Spooky Poo (a spoof of Scooby Doo seen earlier in the season) can be heard.
Once Francine and Buster discover Arthur liking the Love Ducks, they tease him the following ways: Buster makes quacking sounds, someone tapes a drawing of a duck onto Arthur's locker, Binky asks if Arthur learned any babyish info (like where your nose is), Francine holds up a green duck doll and quacks, and then Binky quacks at him.
In "Buster's Best Behavior", after Francine tells Arthur and Buster to be themselves and to come play soccer with her, in one shot Buster is in his regular clothes and then in the next shot he is in Arthur's main outfit. Animation problems I suppose.
When Binky looks up at his butterflies in his tent as he says "I worked really hard on this!" you can see that there is a moth among the butterflies (the same blue-and-brown moth George pointed out when Binky asked if he's seen the large blue butterfly.) If Binky was doing a report on butterflies, he should not have caught a moth in the process, as moths do have several differences from butterflies (they are typically nocturnal, have feather-like antennas, plumper bodies and rest with the wings spread out.)
The children of Mr. Ratburn's class chose the following bugs for their projects:
Sue Ellen: Praying Mantises
Arthur's math homework has the equation "1989 ÷ 13," but when he works the equation out, he writes "1989 ÷ 3."
During D.W.'s story, when she says "But big rocks can," her skin is lighter than usual.
Prunella is a fourth grader, but all of the kids at her birthday are in the third grade.
When Muffy asks her Dad to fix the power he says "There are some things money can't buy," but theoretically they should at least have a generator. It seems odd that they have so many expensive things, but no independent generator.
During the blizzard, Arthur's dad calls the Crosswires when they are without power. Though they have no electricity, Muffy's dad answers on a cordless phone, something that would usually require power to operate.
And Now, a Word From Us Kids: Viewers are shown the life of Holly Hollen, the girl who came up with the idea for "The Contest."
At the end of "The Contest," during the scene featuring the kids in the future, Arthur's skin is lighter than usual in one scene.
In "Buster's Breathless," Arthur blows powdered sugar off of a donut and gets it all off. If one tried that in real life, the sugar wouldn't really come off!
In "The Fright Stuff", when the girls tell Arthur that his prank was mean, and that they stole there prank, the Red thing on Arthur's Head head, under the Bunny ears, turns white.
In Arthur's Big Hit, when Arthur hits D.W., apparently on the shoulder since D.W. touches that part as she gets up and cries, she falls backward in a sitting position. If someone was struck in the shoulder, they would not land in a sitting position on the ground. They would land flat on either their front or their back instead.
In "Arthur's Big Hit," when Arthur and "D.W." face off in the heavyweight boxing match, when the 2 have their mouthguards in, "D.W." is somehow able to speak, despite the fact that "she" can't understand what Arthur's saying when he has his mouthguard on.
Arthur's full name, Arthur Timothy Read, is mentioned for the first time in "Arthur's Big Hit."
And Now a Word From Us Kids: Kids at the Fox Point branch of the Providence Public Library, in Providence, Rhode Island.
"D.W.'s Library Card" marks the first and only appearance of Aloysius Zimmerplotz, one of D.W.'s classmates. He has difficulty signing his full name onto a library card.
