´╗┐The show opens with a clip of Arthur and his dog walking down a street. Arthur is an 8-year-old aardvark. He has a round head with small round ears and short brown hair, and he wears glasses.

The scene continues when Arthur jumps into the cover of a book that a little girl reads on her bed. The book is called "Arthur." It makes the girl laugh.

A song plays on as all this takes place.

The lyrics say
EVERY DAY WHEN YOU'RE WALKING DOWN THE STREET EVERYBODY THAT YOU MEET HAS AN ORIGINAL POINT OF VIEW AND I SAY HEY!

Arthur opens the bedroom door and says HEY!

The song goes on, and a bunch of smiling animal faces sing WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY IF WE COULD LEARN TO WORK AND PLAY AND GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER

Now Arthur takes a family picture as his parents, grandparents, sisters, and dog sit on the family couch.

The song keeps playing
YOU GOTTA LISTEN TO YOUR HEART LISTEN TO THE BEAT LISTEN TO THE RHYTHM THE RHYTHM OF THE STREET OPEN UP YOUR EYES OPEN UP YOUR EARS GET TOGETHER AND MAKE THINGS BETTER BY WORKING TOGETHER IT'S A SIMPLE MESSAGE AND IT COMES FROM THE HEART

Arthur looks at the family album. He hugs his mum and jumps out to the city. He sees bikes, cars, and shops. He high-fives a friend that cycles by.

The song goes on
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF FOR THAT'S THE PLACE TO START AND I SAY

Now Arthur falls into a swimming pool and plays with friends.

The song continues
HEY! HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY IF WE COULD LEARN TO WORK AND PLAY AND GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY

Now Arthur's sister closes her "Arthur" book and sees Arthur on the living room TV.

She says HEY!

Arthur falls backwards.

In the classroom, Brain gives a presentation on the history of Lakewood Elementary's rivalry with another school.

Brain says LIGHTS, PLEASE.
THE RIVALRY BETWEEN MIGHTY
MOUNTAIN AND LAKEWOOD ELEMENTARY
STRETCHES BACK DECADES.
EVER SINCE BIFF BIFFINGTON BEAT
US IN THE HOOP CHAMPIONSHIP,
OUR DRIVE TO DEFEAT THEM HAS
ONLY INTENSIFIED:
SPORTS.
SPELLING BEES.
QUILTING BEES.
COMPETITIVE BEE KEEPING.
WHATEVER THE ACTIVITY, OUR
SCHOOLS HAVE DUKED IT OUT
FOR GLORY.
BUT THE MOST HIGHLY CHARGED
CONTEST OF THEM ALL HAS BEEN...
THE ELWOOD CITY SCIENCE FAIR.

He clicks to show different pictures of the school activities.

He continues THE TROPHY HAS SWITCHED HANDS
DOZENS OF TIMES.
BUT THIS YEAR?
OUR ARCH ENEMY WON'T PREVAIL!
THEY MAY HAVE THE BEST QUILTS
AND HONEY, BUT SCIENCE FAIR
GLORY WILL BE OURS!

A colourful striped slate appears. It reads "When Rivals Came to Roost."
A caption under it reads "written by Eliza Bent and Glen Berger by Jeremy O'Neil."

Muffy looks at the class's science project on worms.

Muffy says I WISH OUR SCIENCE FAIR
PROJECT WASN'T SO...
(shuddering)
WORMY.

Brain says MUFFY, WORMS PLAY AN
IMPORTANT ROLE IN KEEPING SOIL
HEALTHY.

Buster says YEAH!
AND THEY'RE FUNNY.
ESPECIALLY MR. WIGGLES.

Muffy says HE DOESN'T SEEM FUNNY
TO ME.

Buster says I GUESS NOT EVERYBODY
GETS WORM HUMOUR.

Mr. Ratburn walks in and says CLASS, MAY
I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION, PLEASE.
A BURST PIPE FLOODED THE THIRD
GRADE CLASSROOM AT MIGHTY
MOUNTAIN THIS WEEKEND.
SO THEY'LL BE HERE UNTIL THE
DAMAGE IS REPAIRED.

Ladonna says WILL THEIR CLASSROOM BE
NEARBY?

Mr. Ratburn says OH, BY "HERE," I MEANT
IN THIS ROOM.
THEY'RE ARRIVING AFTER LUNCH.
(all exclaiming)
IT'LL BE A LITTLE CROWDED, BUT
I'M SURE WE'LL MAKE THEM FEEL
AS WELCOME AS WE WOULD WISH
TO FEEL IF WE WERE IN THEIR
SHOES.

Brain says BUT THEY'LL SEE OUR WORMS!
OUR TOP SECRET WORMS!

Mr. Ratburn says YES, AND WE'LL GET TO LEARN
ABOUT THEIR PROJECT.
BECAUSE THE JANITOR RESCUED IT.

Ladonna, Arthur, Buster and Muffy chat while eating lunch outside.

Ladonna says MR. RATBURN SAID THEY LOST
A LOT OF THEIR SCHOOL SUPPLIES
IN THE FLOOD.

Muffy says WE SHOULD MAKE THEM WELCOME
KITS.
I HAVE A LOT OF EXTRA SCRUNCHIES
WE COULD GIVE THEM.

Buster says AND I HAVE SOME KETCHUP
FLAVOURED JELLY BEANS.
OR JELLY BEANS I ACCIDENTALLY
GOT KETCHUP ON.

Ladonna says I WAS THINKIN' NOTEBOOK
PAPER?

Arthur says YEAH!
WE SHOULD THINK ABOUT THINGS WE
WOULD APPRECIATE HAVING, IF WE
WERE THEM.

Ladonna says AND WHAT IF WE ALL WORE
THESE RIBBONS?
THEY'RE IN MIGHTY MOUNTAIN'S
SCHOOL COLOURS.

Brain says WHY WOULD WE WEAR THESE?

Muffy says SOLIDARITY!
TO SHOW THEM WE'RE ALL ON THE
SAME TEAM.

Brain says BUT WE'RE NOT ON THE SAME
TEAM.
WE'RE RIVALS!

Ladonna says BRAIN, JUST BECAUSE LOS DEDOS
BEAT YOU AT CHESS A FEW
MONTHS AGO...

Buster says IT'LL BE FUN TO HAVE MIGHTY
MOUNTAIN HERE.
THE MORE, THE MERRIER.

(class bell ringing)

Standing in front of the class, Muffy says ON BEHALF OF THE THIRD GRADE
CLASS, WELCOME!
PLEASE KNOW THAT ANYTHING OF
OURS IS YOURS.
EXCEPT THAT PENCIL!
THAT'S MY PENCIL!
ANY QUESTIONS?

Los Dedos has a brown ponytail. She wears a pink shirt with a yellow collar.

Los Dedos says BRAIN?

Brain says LOS DEDOS?

Los Dedos says LET'S MAKE THE UPCOMING
SCIENCE FAIR ABOUT GOOD SCIENCE.
NOT COMPETITION.
AGREED?

Brain says OF COURSE.

They shake hands.

Los Dedos says MEASURING WORM
DIGGING?
THAT'S YOUR WHOLE PROJECT?

Brain says WORMS EAT THEIR WEIGHT IN
DIRT EVERY DAY.
THAT KIND OF DATA WILL IMPRESS
THE JUDGES.

Los Dedos says OH, I'M SURE.

Los Dedos places a jar with ants on the table.

Brain says A BUNCH OF ANTS IN A PICKLE
JAR?!
I'M SORRY, LOS DEDOS,
I EXPECTED MORE FROM YOU.

Los Dedos says WE HAD AN INCREDIBLE
DISPLAY.
IT WAS ALMOST COMPLETE, BUT
THE FLOODING DESTROYED IT!

Brain says OH, I'M SURE.

(juice fizzing)
Los Dedos opens a can of soda, which sprays all over Brain's project.

Brain gasps and yells OH, MY MEASUREMENTS!

Buster says MR. WIGGLES!

At Arthur's house Ladonna, Arthur, Muffy, Brain and Buster work on the worms project.

Arthur says IT FELT WEIRD
HAVING MIGHTY MOUNTAIN KIDS
IN OUR CLASS.

Ladonna says I'M SURE IT FELT WEIRDER
FOR THEM.
IMAGINE HAVING A DIFFERENT DESK,
A DIFFERENT TEACHER?

Muffy says DEBBIE, MY DESK-MATE,
KEPT ASKING IF SHE COULD BORROW
AN ERASER!

Ladonna says PROBABLY BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T
HAVE ONE.
THEY'RE ALL JUST TRYING
TO FIT IN.

Brain says HOW DOES SABOTAGING OUR WORM
GRAPH WITH JUICE HELP THEM
FIT IN?

Ladonna says THAT WAS AN ACCIDENT.

Buster says OR WAS IT?
DID YOU KNOW IN THE NATURAL
WORLD, ANTS AND WORMS ARE
MORTAL ENEMIES?

Brain says I'VE NEVER HEARD THAT BEFORE.

Buster says THEN YOU'VE NEVER READ
BIONIC BUNNY
ISSUE 312,
DR. ANTIC VS. SQUIRM:
DOOM IN THE DIRT.

Buster imagines a story.

Buster says THE SUPER VILLAIN DR. ANTIC
RETIRED...

Squirm attacks a building.

Buster says BUT WITH SQUIRM ON A RAMPAGE...
BIONIC BUNNY NEEDED BACKUP.
(heroic music playing)
SQUIRM'S AUNTIE WAS
AUNTIE WORM, SO HE BRIBED
ANTIC'S AUNTIE, UPPING THE ANTE
WITH ANTIQUES, IN HER
ANTARCTIC ANTECHAMBER...
TO ANTAGONIZE ANTIC INTO
STANDING FIRM AGAINST SQUIRM.
(phone ringing)
(auntie chattering)

The imaginary story ends.

Buster says AND WHAT HAPPENED NEXT WAS
HORRIBLE!

Muffy says WHAT HAPPENED?!

Buster says MY MOM MADE ME LEAVE THE
STORE BEFORE I COULD
FINISH THE ISSUE.

Brain says WELL,
BIONIC BUNNY
ISN'T
BASED ON SCIENCE.

Arthur says AND THE ANTS AND WORMS ARE
IN SEPARATE CONTAINERS.

Brain says BUT MAYBE WE SHOULD KEEP
A CLOSER EYE ON OUR WORMS.
AND ON THE MIGHTY MOUNTAIN KIDS.

Now, the kids queue at the school canteen.

Arthur says I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW LONG
WE'VE BEEN WAITING IN THIS LINE.

Buster says I KNOW!
SOON, IT'LL BE DINNER.

Brain says WELL, MAYBE IF
SOME PEOPLE
DIDN'T INSIST ON THE
MIGHTY MOUNTAIN KIDS GOING TO
LUNCH FIRST.

Ladonna says IT WAS TO MAKE THEM FEEL
MORE WELCOME.

Muffy says BESIDES, AFTER WORKING WITH
WORMS ALL MORNING, I'VE KIND OF
LOST MY APPETITE.
UGH.

Buster says BUT IT'S PIZZA DAY!
I'VE BEEN DREAMING OF PEPPERONI
ALL WEEK!

Leah says SORRY, KIDS.
JUST RAN OUT.
BUT I TURNED YESTERDAY'S
SPAGHETTI INTO PASTA A LA YUM.

(splatting)
Leah drops sickly pasta on their plates.

Muffy says I CAN'T ESCAPE THE WORMS!

Buster says WHAT ABOUT MY PEPPERONI?
AWW.

Muffy says MIGHTY MOUNTAIN IS REALLY
STARTING TO WEAR OUT THEIR
WELCOME.

Buster says YEAH.

Later, Buster says I HAVE TO WAIT LONGER TO SHARPEN
MY PENCILS.

Arthur says WE COULDN'T USE
THE FOURSQUARE COURT 'CAUSE
MIGHTY MOUNTAIN KIDS WERE
USING IT!

Muffy says ARE WE MAKING THEM
FEEL
TOO
WELCOME?

Now, the gang chats sitting at a table in the canteen.

Muffy says WHAT IF THEY DON'T WANT TO
GO BACK?!

Ladonna says I DON'T THINK WE HAVE TO
WORRY ABOUT THAT.

Buster says HEY, WHERE DID DANNY AND
LOS DEDOS GO?

Brain says OH, THE WORMS!

They run into the classroom and find that the worm container has been smashed.

Brain says WHAT'S GOING ON?!

Los Dedos says IT WAS AN ACCIDENT!

Danny says WE LEFT LUNCH EARLY...

Los Dedos says TO CHECK ON THE TEMPERATURE
OF OUR ANTS' SOIL...

Danny says THE TABLE WAS CROWDED!

Los Dedos says IT SLIPPED!

Brain says WHAT DO YOU THINK
YOU'RE DOING?!

Los Dedos says JUST TRYING TO HELP
PICK THE WORMS UP.

Brain says NO, DON'T PICK THEM UP
LIKE THAT!
YOU HAVE TO BE VERY CAREFUL.

Los Dedos says OKAY, OKAY!
BUT WHERE WILL YOU PUT THEM?
YOU CAN'T USE THAT SOIL, NOW.
IT COULD BE CONTAMINATED WITH
FLOOR SOAP.

Ladonna says SHE'S RIGHT.

Los Dedos say HMM...
THEY COULD LIVE IN HERE.

Brain says WITH YOUR ANTS?

Los Dedos says JUST TEMPORARILY.

Ladonna says DO WE HAVE A CHOICE?

Buster says MR. WIGGLES MAY HAVE
SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT ALL THIS.
I THINK.

Buster and Brian put the worms inside the jar.

Then, Brian and Muffy chat as the go to school.

Brain says I'VE DRAWN UP SOME DESIGNS
FOR A SMALL BUT STURDY WALL
TO KEEP OUR TWO SCIENCE PROJECTS
SEPARATED.

Muffy says IS THAT REALLY NECESSARY?

Brain says I BELIEVE IT'LL
ENSURE THE SAFETY OF BOTH
THE ANTS AND THE WORMS WHILE...
HMM...
IF I DIDN'T KNOW BETTER, I'D SAY
THEY'RE PLOTTING SOMETHING.

He spots Danny and Los Dedos.

He says QUICK, HIDE!

They get behind a bush.

Muffy says HUH-- WHOA!

Danny says NOW THE WHOLE LAKEWOOD CLASS
IS ANGRY AT OUR CLASS.

Los Dedos says I MISS MIGHTY MOUNTAIN.
IT FEELS LIKE EVERYTHING WE DO
HERE IS TREATED WITH MISTRUST.

Danny says MMM...
MAYBE IF WE HELP THEM...?

Los Dedos says YES!
LET'S DO SOMETHING TO HELP THEM
WITH THEIR WORM PROJECT.
I KNOW THE PERFECT THING TO MOVE
THE WORMS!
LET'S SEE IF IT'S STILL IN OUR
CLASSROOM BACK AT MIGHTY
MOUNTAIN.

Brain says DID YOU HEAR THAT?!
THEY'RE TAKING OUR WORMS!
IF WE CAN PROVE THEY'RE TRYING
TO SABOTAGE OUR PROJECT,
THEY'LL BE DISQUALIFIED!
COME ON!

Los Dedos and Danny stand outside a building trying to looking through a window.

Brain says THERE THEY ARE!
DON'T DENY IT!
YOU'RE HERE TO RETRIEVE YOUR
WORM MOVER SO YOU CAN TAKE OUR
WORMS!

Los Dedos says YES, WE DIDN'T WANT TO HARM
YOUR WORMS WHILE WE TRANSFERRED
THEM TO A NEW WORM HOME WE
WANTED TO BUILD.

Danny says SO WE CAME HERE TO RETRIEVE
THOSE!

Los Dedos say SOFT TONGS.
TO MOVE THE WORMS GENTLY.

Brain says OH!

Los Dedos says BUT I'M AFRAID OUR CLASSROOM
IS STILL TOO DAMAGED TO ENTER.

They look through the glass. The classroom is ruined.

Brain says WOW.
IT'S REALLY BAD.

Los Dedos say THAT WAS MY DESK.
ALL MY SCHOOLWORK.

Muffy says I HAD NO IDEA SO MANY THINGS
GOT RUINED!

Los Dedos says AND THAT WAS OUR ANT FARM.

Brain says IT'S SO ELABORATE!

Los Dedos says WE COULDN'T REBUILD IT AT
LAKEWOOD, BECAUSE WE DIDN'T
KNOW WHERE TO FIND THE
MATERIALS.

Muffy says WELL, WE COULD'VE BEEN
MORE HELP.

Brain says YOU WERE RIGHT.
YOUR PROJECT WAS BETTER THAN
OURS.
I'M SORRY, LOS DEDOS.

Los Dedos says LOS DEDOS IS JUST MY
NICKNAME FOR CHESS.
PLEASE, MY NAME IS ISABELLA.

Buster says THERE YOU ARE!
COME QUICKLY!
THE ANTS ARE ATTACKING THE
WORMS, JUST AS
BIONIC BUNNY
PREDICTED!

Back in the classroom, Brain says THE ANTS
DO
SEEM TO BE
ENGAGING WITH THE WORMS.

Ladonna says BUT I DON'T THINK THEY'RE
ATTACKING EACH OTHER.

Brain says FASCINATING!
THE ANTS AND WORMS...

Los Dedos says ARE WORKING TOGETHER...

Los Dedos and Brian say TO DISTRIBUTE NUTRIENTS
THROUGHOUT THE COLONY!

Brain says ISABELLA, DO YOU KNOW
WHAT THIS MEANS?!

(robot whirring)

At the competition, Los Dedos and Brain present their project.

Brain says AND THAT'S WHEN WE REALIZED
THAT WE WOULD HAVE A STRONGER
ENTRY...

Los Dedos says IF WE COMBINED THE PROJECTS
OF OUR TWO SCHOOLS!

They get the first place.

Los Dedos says WELL, BRAIN...
YOU AND YOUR CLASSMATES
TURNED OUT TO BE WORTHY
OPPONENTS.

Brain says BUT I THINK WE ALL TURNED OUT
TO BE WORTHIER PARTNERS.

They hold the prize and smile.

A pink slate shows a girl holding a drawing.

Kids say AND NOW, A WORD FROM US KIDS.

Wearing a school uniform, Mia says MY NAME IS MIA, THIS IS MY
SECOND GRADE CLASS.
MIGHTY MOUNTAIN'S CLASSROOM
FLOODED, SO THEY HAD TO GO TO
A DIFFERENT SCHOOL, AND ARTHUR
AND HIS FRIENDS TRIED TO MAKE
THEM FEEL WELCOME.

A Female Teacher says SOMETHING ACTUALLY HAPPENED
IN OUR COMMUNITY.
WE HAVE HAD A GAS EMERGENCY.

A girl with a green sweater says WHAT HAPPENED WAS, LIKE,
A PIPE, LIKE, WASN'T WORKING,
AND GAS GOT OUT.
AND HOUSES GOT BURNED.

The Teacher says WE HAVE HAD A LOT
OF FAMILIES DISPLACED, WHICH
MEANS THEY ARE LIVING SOMEWHERE
ELSE.

A girl with a pink jacket says ALL THE KIDS IN MY CLASS
HAD TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES.

Mia says THEY WOULD GO TO THEIR
RELATIVES' HOUSE, HOTELS, OR
LIVE IN TRAILERS.

A boy with brown hair says I HAD TO LEAVE MY HOME,
'CAUSE I HAD NO ELECTRICITY
OR GAS.

The Teacher says CAN SOME FRIENDS SHARE HOW
THE COMMUNITY HELPED.

A Blond Boy says THEY DONATED FOOD AND
CLOTHES FOR US, BECAUSE WE
DIDN'T HAVE THEM ANYMORE.

A clip shows the donations collected.

The Teacher says HOW DO YOU THINK
THOSE DONATIONS MADE THE
FAMILIES FEEL?

A boy says AWESOME.

The girl with a pink jacket says WE ARE MAKING PICTURES
OF WHAT TO BRING.

In the classroom, a young woman says SO THAT IT FEELS LIKE YOU'RE
AT HOME.

The girl with a pink jacket says MY ADVICE IS THAT YOU
BRING CERTAIN THINGS, LIKE,
I BRING MY BED.

A girl with two ponytails says MY FAVOURITE TOY, AND
A BLANKET, AND MY SUITCASE.

Drawings depict what the kids are telling.

A girl with a purple T-shirt says SOME OF MY CLOTHES, AND MY
FAVOURITE STUFFED ANIMAL.
BECAUSE IT HELPS ME SLEEP
AT NIGHT.

A boy with curly hair says I WOULD BRING MY FOOTBALL,
BECAUSE I ALWAYS PLAY FOOTBALL.

The girl with a green sweater says THERE WAS PEOPLE WHO
WORKED, AND THEY WERE WORKING
TO FIX THE GAS, AND THEY'RE
STILL FIXING IT.

The Teacher says AND THEY'RE DIGGING
IN THE STREET.
WHAT ARE THEY DOING?

The Students say HELPING US!

The girl with a green sweater says IF THERE'S AN EMERGENCY
WHERE YOU LIVE, JUST KEEP CALM
AND, LIKE, JUST DO SOMETHING
YOU LIKE.
AND, LIKE, JUST TAKE A DEEP
BREATH.
AND, LIKE, IT'S GONNA BE OKAY.

In off, Students say AND NOW,
BACK TO
ARTHUR.

Arthur gives a PowerPoint presentation.

He says THROUGHOUT HISTORY, THERE'VE
BEEN MANY INVENTIONS THAT PEOPLE
HAVE COME TO RELY ON.
IMAGINE WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE
BEFORE THE INVENTION OF THE
WHEEL.

In a story, Buster and Arthur live in the dinosaur age.

Buster and Arthur yell AHH!

(trumpeting)
A prehistoric elephant chases them. They jump into a vehicle without wheels.

Buster says GO, ARTHUR, GO!

Arthur says THIS WILL NOT END WELL.

Narrating, Arthur says OR THE INVENTION OF THE
PRINTING PRESS.

Mr. Ratburn dictates WE NEED 10,000 COPIES BY
TOMORROW FOR DAS ELWOOD CITY
BOOK FAIR!
SCHNELL, SCHNELL!

Arthur accidentally drops ink on a piece of paper.

Arthur says OH, NO!

Narrating, Arthur says OR EVEN THE TELEPHONE.

(doorbell ringing)
Buster opens the door.

Panting, Arthur says I'M GOING TO BE LATE!

Buster says OH, OKAY, THANKS.
YOU RAN ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE
JUST TO TELL ME THAT?

Arthur says THE TELEPHONE WAS NEVER
INVENTED!

Back at the presentation, Arthur says I WONDER WHAT INVENTION OF TODAY
WE WON'T BE ABLE TO LIVE
WITHOUT.

Another episode plays.

A blue spotted slate appears. It reads "The Longest Eleven Minutes."
A caption under it reads "written by Sarah Katin and Nakia Trower Shuman-Storyboard by Karine Charlerois."

(videogame noises)

Arthur and his friends have fun using different electronic devices.

Arthur says NOT TODAY, TEKASHI!

Muffy says HMM, NOW, WHAT'S THE BEST
ANGLE FOR MY SELFIE?

(bird tweeting)

Ladonna watches a video on an IPad and says AWW!

Buster reads an article about aliens on his laptop.

He says WHOA!

DW says HEY, YOU GUYS!
OH.
WHATCHA DOIN'?

Arthur says NOT NOW, D.W.!

DW says I'M BORED.

Arthur says GO PLAY WITH MOM!

DW says MOM TOOK BABY KATE TO
THE STORE.

Arthur says DAD, THEN.

DW says DAD'S IN THE GARAGE.
HE'S GOT A BIG CATERING JOB.
HE SAID TO PLAY WITH YOU.
ALL RIGHT.
THEN I GUESS I'LL JUST SING
TO MYSELF.

She sings CRAZY BUS...

Arthur yells NO!

DW says FINE.

All say NOOO!

DW says I SAID, FINE!

Muffy says MY NEW PROFILE PIC
WON'T POST.
LOOK!

She shows them her cell phone screen and says I DON'T LIKE THAT SPINNING
WHEEL!

Arthur says I LOST TEKASHI!

Ladonna says MY VIDEO SAYS IT'S BUFFERING,
BUT, BUT IT'S NOT BUFFERING.
IT'S NOT BUFFERING AT ALL!

Buster says RELAX.
HIT REFRESH.

Buster clicks and nothing happens.

Arthur says GUYS?
I THINK THE INTERNET IS...
GONE!

Ladonna says THAT CAN'T HAPPEN.
CAN IT?

Buster says I MUST'VE BEEN GETTING
TOO CLOSE TO THE TRUTH!
AND AT EXACTLY...
1 O'CLOCK, THEY...
SHUT DOWN THE INTERNET!

Ladonna says WHO ARE "THEY"?

Buster says EXACTLY!

Arthur says I THOUGHT YOU WERE WORKING ON
YOUR GREAT INVENTIONS REPORT.

Buster says I AM, THE INVENTION OF
ALUMINUM FOIL.
I TYPED "A" AND "L" INTO
BOOGLE, AND BOOM!
"ALIENS" POPPED UP!
IT'S LIKE BOOGLE KNEW.

Muffy says OH, THAT'S IT!
LET'S ASK BOOGLE HOW TO FIX
THE INTERNET!

Buster says YEAH!
THERE IS NO BOOGLE!

Arthur says WHAT DO WE DO?!

DW says JUST UNPLUG THAT
BLINKING BOX.

Buster says OF COURSE!
THE ROUTER!

Arthur says HOW DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE
ROUTER?

DW says IT'S WHAT MOM DOES.

Arthur is about to reset the router.

Buster says WAIT!

Arthur says WHAT?

Buster says YOU HAVE TO WAIT THREE
SECONDS, EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT.

Muffy says WHAT DO WE DO FOR ALL THAT
TIME?

Ladonna says WE COUNT.
ONE...

Buster says STOP!
YOU HAVE TO COUNT WITH
"MISSISSIPPIS."

Ladonna says ONE, MISSISSIPPI.

Muffy says TWO, MISSISSIPPI.

Buster says THREE, MISSISSIPPI!

(dramatic music playing)

The Internet connection is still gone.

Arthur says NOW WHAT?!

DW says LET'S BE UNICORNS!
(whinnying)

Arthur says WE JUST NEED TO USE OUR
BRAINS!

Arthur calls Brian.

On the phone, Brain says DID YOU RUN SYSTEM
DIAGNOSTICS, CHECKING FOR
CONNECTIVITY?

Arthur says UH...
WHAT?

D.W. plays running around and whinnying like a horse.

Brain says I ALSO SUGGEST YOU
TEMPORARILY DISABLE ANY
FIREWALLS TO ENSURE THAT'S NOT
THE ROOT CAUSE.

Buster says THIS IS AN EMERGENCY!
CAN YOU JUST GIVE US A QUICK
FIX, USING SIMPLE WORDS?

Brain says DID YOU UNPLUG THE ROUTER?

All say YES!

Brain says DID YOU WAIT THREE
SECONDS?

All say YES!

Brain says SORRY, GUYS.
THAT'S ALL I'VE GOT.
MAYBE AN INTERNET OUTAGE
ON YOUR BLOCK.

Arthur and his friends go outside.

Alberto says HOLA, ARTHUR.

Arthur says HI, ALBERTO.
IS YOUR INTERNET OUT, TOO?

Alberto says AFRAID SO.

Arthur says WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO?

Alberto says UM, I'M JUST GONNA WALK
MY DOG.

Muffy says HOW WILL I UPDATE MY VIDEO
BLOG?
I HAVE FANS!

Ladonna says STAY CALM.
IF WE STAY CALM, WE CAN GET
TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS.

Buster says HOW DID PEOPLE GET TO
THE BOTTOM OF THINGS BEFORE
THE INTERNET?

(music playing)

Ladonna says THAT SOUND!
SOMEONE IS STREAMING MUSIC.

The kids walk into the garage.

Arthur says DAD!
THE INTERNET IS GONE!

Buster says BECAUSE OF THE ALIENS.

Ladonna, Muffy and Arthur say IT'S NOT ALIENS!

Mr. Read says HELLO TO ALL OF YOU, TOO.

Ladonna says MR. READ, ARE YOU STREAMING
MUSIC?

Muffy says PLEASE TELL US YOU'VE
FOUND THE INTERNET.

Mr. Read says IT'S THE RADIO.

The kids sigh.

Mr. Read says WHY DON'T YOU PLAY OUTSIDE?

Arthur says WE CAN'T PLAY OUTSIDE
AT A TIME LIKE THIS!

Ladonna says CAN YOU FIX IT, MR. READ?
THE INTERNET?

Mr. Read says DID YOU TRY UNPLUGGING THE
BLINKING BOX AND WAITING...

The kids say THREE SECONDS, YES!

Muffy sighs.

Ladonna says A LONG, LONG TIME AGO,
PEOPLE USED THE RADIO TO
BROADCAST EMERGENCY INFORMATION.

Mr. Read says YOU DON'T SAY.

Ladonna says IT'S TRUE.
I DID MY GREAT INVENTIONS REPORT
ON THE RADIO.
MAYBE IT CAN HELP US.
WE KNOW THE INTERNET IS OUT.
MAYBE WE CAN FIND OUT WHY
AND FOR HOW LONG.

Arthur says DAD, WE NEED TO BORROW YOUR
RADIO!

Ladonna changes the station.

On the radio, a male host says THE BESTSELLING BOOK,
100 NEW USES FOR SPATULAS.

(camera clicking)

Muffy accidentally takes a picture with a Polaroid camera.

She says OH!

Ladonna says WHAT'S THAT?

Muffy says I DON'T KNOW.

Arthur says IT'S... BLANK.

Buster says MAYBE IT'S SOME KIND OF
PAPER MACHINE.
IT GIVES US PAPER, AND WE
WRITE ON IT.

Muffy says WHATEVER IT IS, IT MUST BE
BROKEN.
THAT'S PROBABLY WHY I FOUND IT
IN THAT BOX OVER THERE.
(camera clicking)
YEP, THIS ONE'S A DUD, TOO.

Ladonna finds a box with books.

Ladonna says WOW, COOL!
LOOK AT ALL THESE OLD BOOKS!

Arthur says BOOKS, OF COURSE!
MAYBE THERE'S SOMETHING WRITTEN
ABOUT THE INTERNET THAT CAN
HELP US.

Ladonna says AH, WE NEED MORE LIGHT.
BOOKS DON'T HAVE SCREENS WE CAN
BRIGHTEN.

Arthur says LET'S BRING THE BOX TO THE
BACKYARD!

DW says YOU GUYS WANNA PLAY WITH US?

Arthur says WE'RE A BIT BUSY.

Buster says SAVING THE INTERNET!

In the yard, Arthur takes a book out of the box.

Ladonna says WHAT'S IT SAY?

Buster reads "EN-CY-CLO-PE-DIA."

Muffy says THIS BOOK IS JUST
ABOUT ANYTHING THAT STARTS
WITH AN A.

Arthur says IF ONLY THERE WAS A BOOK
ABOUT I!

Muffy says THAT'S A LITTLE SELFISH.

Arthur says "I" FOR "INTERNET," NOT
"I" FOR "ME."

Muffy says OH, THAT WOULD BE GOOD!

Ladonna says HERE'S THE ONE WITH I.
INTERNET'S NOT HERE.

Buster says THEY
TOOK IT OUT.

Arthur says I THINK THIS BOOK MIGHT BE
FROM BEFORE THE INTERNET.

Ladonna says WHOA!

(bird tweeting)

Buster says HEY, GUYS?
SOMETHING VERY STRANGE IS
HAPPENING.
LOOK.

Buster shows them the Polaroid picture of Muffy.

Muffy says THAT IS NOT A
FLATTERING ANGLE.

Accidentally, Buster takes another Polaroid picture.

Buster says AH!
WHAT KIND OF SORCERY IS THIS?

Ladonna says OH!

DW's frisbee hits the book turning the pages.

Ladonna says LOOK!
"INSTANT CAMERA."
D.W., YOU DID IT!

DW says I DID?

Buster reads "THIS TYPE OF CAMERA USES
SELF-DEVELOPING FILM."
He says THIS BOOK IS LIKE WIKIPEDIA,
BUT YOU DON'T NEED THE INTERNET!
I CAN DO MY SCHOOL REPORT ON
THIS CAMERA!

Muffy says NOW THIS ONE HAS GOOD ANGLES.
AND IT ALREADY COMES WITH
ITS OWN COOL RETRO FILTER.

Buster says WHOA!
MINE'S OF THE TREE.
SHOULDN'T THAT LITTLE BIRD
BE IN THE TREE?

Buster shows them a picture of a little bird on the grass.

Pal barks. They try to find the little bird.

Ladonna says HERE IT IS!
AWW!

Arthur says IT MUST'VE FALLEN FROM ITS
NEST.

Muffy says OH, WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

Buster says THE INTERNET WOULD BE
REALLY USEFUL RIGHT ABOUT NOW.
WAIT, DON'T!
MAYBE WE SHOULDN'T TOUCH IT!
ISN'T THAT BAD?

Ladonna says THAT'S JUST A MYTH.
I KNOW WHAT TO DO.
I WAS WATCHING A SCIENCE VIDEO
ON BABY BIRDS.
WE NEED TO RETURN IT TO ITS
NEST.

Arthur says IT'S LIKE
BEST OF THE NEST
IRL!

Ladonna says "IRL?"

Arthur says IN REAL LIFE!
(barking)
BUSTER, HOLD ON TO PAL.
LADONNA, YOU'LL NEED TO GET ON
MY SHOULDERS.
MUFFY, YOU GET THE BIRD.

Muffy says HUH?
I NEED TO DOCUMENT THIS FOR
MY BLOG!
IT WILL GET SO MANY LIKES!

Arthur says D.W., YOU'LL NEED TO PICK UP
THE BABY BIRD AND CAREFULLY
HAND IT TO LADONNA.
EVERYONE GOT IT?

They say GOT IT!

(tweeting)

They follow Arthur's instructions.

Ladonna says IT'S NO GOOD!
I CAN'T REACH!
WE'LL HAVE TO GO TO
PLAN B.

All say THERE'S A PLAN B?!

Ladonna brings a small strawberry basket.

Muffy says PLAN B IS A STRAWBERRY
BASKET?

Ladonna says TO MAKE A NEST.

Arthur says WILL THAT WORK?

Ladonna says MOTHER BIRDS ARE VERY GOOD
ABOUT LOOKING AFTER THEIR YOUNG.
IF WE MAKE A NEW NEST AND PUT
IT AS HIGH AS WE CAN,
THE MAMA WILL FLY DOWN
TO FEED IT.

Muffy takes a picture and says I THINK THIS MEANS I ONLY
HAVE THREE PHOTOS LEFT.

Arthur says YOU'LL JUST HAVE
TO BE SELECTIVE.

Muffy says OH, LIMITED PHOTOS!
HOW BARBARIC!

Arthur says READY?

Ladonna says READY!

Ladonna places the basket on the tree and the bird mom flies into it.

(all cheering)

Arthur says I WIN!
UH, I MEAN, WE WIN!

Buster says AND THE BEST PART IS
THAT WE DID IT WITHOUT
THE INTERNET!
SO
THEY
WILL NEVER KNOW!

Arthur says THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE
ALIENS WROTE THIS BOOK.

Buster gasps.

Muffy says THIS WILL BE THE
PERFECT PROFILE PIC!

(camera clicking)
Muffy photographs the Polaroid picture using her cell phone.

Muffy says HASHTAG, NO FILTER NEEDED.

Mr. Read says HEY, KIDS!
THE INTERNET'S BACK ON!

Arthur says IT FEELS LIKE FOREVER AGO
THAT WE LOST THE INTERNET.

Ladonna says HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN?

Muffy says IT'S 1:11.

Buster says IT WAS 1:00 WHEN IT WENT OUT.
THAT MEANS...

Arthur says THE INTERNET WAS ONLY OUT
FOR 11 MINUTES?!
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU GUYS,
BUT I WASN'T WORRIED.

(laughing)

All say YEAH, RIGHT.

The end credits roll as the theme song plays.

The lyrics say
EVERY DAY WHEN YOU'RE WALKING DOWN THE STREET EVERYBODY THAT YOU MEET HAS AN ORIGINAL POINT OF VIEW AND I SAY HEY! HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY IF WE COULD LEARN TO WORK AND PLAY AND GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER HEY! WHAT A WONDERFUL KIND OF DAY.
