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.

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.

...that doesn't relate to Marc Brown's Arthur but relates to an Arthur brain who wears glasses just like Marc Brown's Arthur does!:

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

Sometimes the April 9th. Arthur episode is aired at the time of the September 11, 2001 anniversary.

PBS Stations are airing Arthur's Perfect Christmas at selected times and days during the 2012 Christmas season.

I hope everyone in the Mid Atlantic/Northeast stays safe of a possible FRANKENSTORM which includes part of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Sandy this Halloween week!

For the record, the human Mrs. Tibble first appeared in the 1982 Marc Brown Arthur book "Arthur's Halloween".

Rarely Facebook doesn't give any Arthur Season 16 episode spoilers...

This isn't a problem with just Arthur, almost all animated series are aired overseas before they are in the U.S., of which I never understood why that is, but it is. I remember as a kid watching Cartoon Network, and being frustrated that other countries like England had already seen the new episodes of shows like Courage the Cowardly Dog like months before we ever got to see them.

So you'll never know before 2012 is over and early 2013 that YouTube shows one of the remaining Season 16 Arthur episodes yet to air in the USA imported/taped/DVR'd and transferend from Canadian/UK/Australian TV, especially if it is the 2 I am hoping for in early 2013 - "Fern and the Case of the Stolen Story" and "Sue Ellen Veggies Out".

Have you ever noticed in these Arthur books where the Tibble Twins appear:
Arthur Babysits
D.W.'s Library Card
Arthur: It's Only Rock 'n Roll
Arthur and the 1,001 Dads (Arthur Chapter Book)
Arthur's Birthday Surprise
D.W.'s Guide to Preschool
D.W.'s Guide to Perfect Manners
Arthur Turns Green
...the Tibble Twins are human looking rather than animal/bear looking?

In this special, Prunella was voiced by Wendee Lee, who also supplied voices for English dubbed Japanese anime such as Digimon: Digital Monsters.

And in the special: Bruce "Binky Barnes" Dinsmore and Daniel "Buster Baxter" Brochu were credited under different faux names.

Well, I'm waiting for these Season 16 Arthur episodes to air on PBS Kids in the USA in Spring 2013:
"Fern and the Case of the Stolen Story"
"Sue Ellen Veggies Out"
...unless the Canada and/or UK and/or Australia TV market airs these Arthur episodes first.

What I did for Deviantart recently is a drawing of a 9 Story Entertainment HQ door with an image of Sue Ellen and Fern (taken from an Arthur Chapter Book called "Arthur and the Popularity Test", which adapts the Season 3 Arthur episode "Popular Girls") in it, knowing their Arthur main focus episodes for Season 16 won't be ready until Spring 2013. ("Fern and the Case of the Stolen Story" and "Sue Ellen Veggies Out").

This is the pic below...
