I wonder if when Bud was asked, it was more meant as a "is Bud a nickname" kind of thing, as Bud seems (more often than not) to be a nickname rather than a given name.

I've heard of kids with strange names back when I was a kid, so that could actually be his name.

It probably is, but I think that is a better reason as to why the other kids would be asking that to him.

Now watch them go and pull a Binky...

I have found information that leads me to believe that some unseen episodes from Season 16 are being aired in Australia as we speak. The proof lies within this link.

The Australia Broadcasting Corporation's still playing Arthur episodes? When I was checking the kids' TV schedule in January, I didn't see Arthur listed anywhere. I live in the United States; I just wanted to see whether Australia was airing our season 16 episodes before we did. I'm so glad that you made that discovery, MC CJ!

When it comes to cartoons, for some reason, they're almost always aired in other countries before they're aired in the U.S... I have NO idea why that is, it really doesn't make any sense.

When I was a kid, I got really frustrated when people over in the U.K., for example, were seeing the new episodes of my favorite cartoons like Ed, Edd n Eddy and Courage the Cowardly Dog MONTHS before they ever aired in the U.S.

I have no idea either.

We don't see the rest of the Season 16 Arthur episodes in the USA until April 2013.

Someone told me on another message board that he once saw in Canada an episode or two of a Nickelodeon preschool series called The Backyardigans that hadn't at the time aired in the USA as of yet.

Hope they show up on YouTube as spoilers - or not!

Once I watched "In My Africa" on YouTube before it aired in the US. On another day when I used the YouTube's search engine so I could re-watch "In My Africa,"  the video wasn't listed. I wanted to watch "Grandpa Dave's Memory Album" before it aired in the US, but I couldn't find it either. I first saw it on TV.

I watched several episodes from Seasons 14/15 in late 2010 that would not become available until 2011-2012. A user on Youtube streamed them from a website she made and we watched the episodes. That was good times. This was not even long after I joined the Arthur Wiki site. There was even a torrent available with all, but two Season 14/15 episodes. The torrent went down along with Megauploads (which is due to make a comeback very soon).

Cool! I know clip shows get a lot of flack, for some reason, but I usually enjoy clip shows myself, especially when you're seeing them for the first time, and you don't quite know what to expect, yet, you wonder what memories from the past you're going to see, and see if some of your favorite moments will be included.

It really depends on how a clip show is executed, some times it helps if there are new wraparounds, that kind of helps, but NOT when they actually acknowledge flashbacks, like, "I remember one time..." *dissolve*, but rather, when they hint about certain things about the other characters, or things that happen in their lives, then cut to a clip from the past that illustrates that.

This is what an Austrailian viewer over at IMDB had to say about "The Best Day Ever":

Quote
The Best Day ever if I remember was basically an episode of the "best" moments of Arthur, well best moments for Arthur, Buster, Francine, Sue Ellen, Binky and Brain? I think. Sorry I can't remember the specific "best days ever" for the characters, Oh wait I remember Binkys was the episode where Binky and his family brought back their baby from China.

Cool, a character clip show!

Wow good job GrebeGirl on finding this. Thanks for posting it.

It seems like The Best Day Ever basically is like the episode Arthur and the True Francine. A flashback even basically.
