I was shocked to find out that Joe Fallon wrote "Arthur's Big Hit", which is my least favorite episode of the first four seasons, and is absolutely hated by a lot of fans. It didn't seem like a Fallon ep at all, because the majority of his episodes are some of the best.

Fallon was credited as "Executive Story Editor" in Season 5's end credits. I wonder how much creative control he had over the show at that point?

Sandra Willard is another writer I'm fond of. Her last episode was in the third season (according to the Arthur Wiki), but she wrote some of my all-time favorite episodes of the show. "Fern's Slumber Party", "Love Notes for Muffy" and "Popular Girls," among others.
