I don't believe I've seen "Muffy's Soccer Shocker"... I may have, but I probably dont' remember it... believe it or not, for some reason, my PBS affiliate always used to skip Season Six altogether, so I never got to see any of it until about 2005 or so when my PBS conformed to a national schedule (beforehand, the station had a lot more individuality to it, but then once the whole PBS Kids Go concept came into the picture, that's when they started following everybody else), and honestly, from what I remember seeing, I remember thinking, "Gee, I really didn't miss much."

Granted, there were some good moments I enjoyed: Buster trying to make his own chocolates; Arthur seemingly happy he'll never have to play piano again, but goes through like a cold turkey spell; Binky going bad... again ("Guess you better do something about it then, lady!"). Also, finally showing Season Six filled in some gaps, such as I had no idea who these Alberto or Vecita characters were or where they came from, or what this Frensky Star business was, etc. So yeah, miss a little miss a lot.

But I digress, does anyone know why they air the new seasons the way they do? I mean, to play one half in October, and the other half in like March or April or whenever is extremely confusing, it's almost as if we have twice as many seasons that are half the length they used to be.
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!
