  • Allusions

    • In "Philadelphia Masala," Buster learns about yoga from Prunella. Prunella first began teaching yoga on the series in the Arthur story titled "Three's a Crowd". This episode featured Prunella's blind friend, Marina. Yoga created a rift between them when Marina turned out to actually be more of a natural at yoga than Prunella.
