    • Buster: I can see Playmon and Bateria...
      Harry: Uh, Buster, I've got some bad news and some more bad news. Playmon and Bateria got traded last night --- to the Kings!
      Buster: B-But they're Grebes! They helped us win the world championship! Why would they suddenly go over to the other side?

      In the Arthur story titled "The Curse of the Grebes," Buster and Harrys' favorite baseball team, the Elwood City Grebes, won the world championship for the first time in many years thanks to the help of three new players --- Playmon, Bateria and Winlin. The events of this story largely mirrored the real life events of the 2004 World Championship victory of the Boston Red Sox, a team that was said to be "cursed" by legendary New York Yankee player Babe Ruth. Before this Arthur story appeared on the air, Johnny Damon and Edgar Renteria, two of the players who lent their voices to the animated characters (the other being Mike Timlin), were traded to the "enemy" --- the New York Yankees. In this episode, Buster and Harry learn that Playmon and Bateria have been traded. However, they find that the legendary Ebos Schmecter (voiced by Andrew Pifko) remains a loyal player.
