Sloppy Sixes
« on: November 23, 2012, 04:35:01 pm »
In "Arthur's First Sleepover", Buster pulls out a deck of playing cards, and suggests they play a round of "Sloppy Sixes", but he never finishes explaining the object of the game because he misunderstood what Arthur meant when he asked "What's that?"

Is Sloppy Sixes an actual card game? I've never been certain, most people think it was made up for the dialogue instead of something else, like say, Crazy Eights.
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!

It sounds kind of obscene now that you mention it.

According to this forum, it seems like a made-up game. If you search it up, you'll also find very few results (I think one of them is actually a drinking/bar game, but that's OBVIOUSLY not what the makers of the show were going for.  :P).

Yes; our fearless leader advertised Elwood City Central there, so that how I found out about this place.
