I actually thought it was supposed to be another "Don't eat fast food, it's bad for you" type episode. But I'm glad I'm not the only one confused by the message it was trying to get out :/
Funnily enough, I never picked up on that vibe in all the times I watched this episode... of course, then again, I think this was a little before the world of children's educational entertainment became obsessed with health food.

One thing I DO love from this episode on the other hand are the two flashbacks of Thora bringing Arthur and D.W. to the Sugar Bowl for the first time: both of them get a big ice cream cone, and both end up dropping their ice cream to the floor and cry, but with Arthur, Mr. Manino is happy to give Arthur another cone to make him feel better, but with D.W., he sighs and shakes his head like, "Aw gee, give me a break". I wonder if the writers/animators did that on purpose since we're never supposed to sympathize with D.W. XD
I stretch like a snake, and I shimmy and shake, and I bounce like a ball, and I say something cute when you give me a squeeze!
