** Averted in "Shelter From The Storm". The Brain starts having anxiety and becomes increasingly stressed after a hurricane hits their town. His parents send him to a therapist, voiced by Creator/IdinaMenzel, to help his issues. After the end of his session he thinks he's "cured" but is told by his therapist that dealing with anxiety takes time, made obvious by the fact Brain is {{trigger}}ed by the rustling of wind. She teaches him techniques to deal with his anxiety and in the end he confronts his fears.

* NightmareFuel: [[invoked]]
** D.W. told Arthur Dark Bunny was apparently so scary, it gave her a bad experience.
** Likewise, any dreams Binky had without a night light.
** An in-universe example: reading the (briefly) popular comic "Grotesquely Grim Bunny" gave Arthur nightmares. In fact, if we go by Arthur's {{Imagine Spot}}s and general character, he's kind of prone to them. "Arthur's Underwear" is an egregious example.


Added DiffLines:

* NewYorkIsOnlyManhattan: Averted in an episode where the characters visit NYC. They go to different boroughs and take real-world footage.

* SimilarItemConfusion: In the episode "What's Cooking?", Arthur enters a cooking competition at school, hosted by famous chef, Ming Tsai, with plans to make a chocolate cake. His dad insists on wanting to help, even thought it's a Kids-only competition. Arthur makes a mistake by adding baking soda instead of baking powder, resulting in a batch of brownies instead of a chocolate cake. He wants to throw them out at first, but then his brownies become a huge hit with the class, and [[AnAesop he learns that many great foods were created by accident]] from Ming Tsai.

**Occurs in "Arthur Rides the Bandwagon." Arthur is the only one without a Woogle, the latest fad toy among the cast. He gets so frustrated that he predicts a juice cap is more fun than a Woogle. [[ItMakesSenseInContext Actually, it is]], and soon all the kids are playing with juice caps instead.

* CrossOver: Mister Rogers made a guest appearance in one episode where he befriends Arthur. Marc Brown later returned the favor when he appeared in an episode of ''MisterRogersNeighborhood'', and Arthur (a puppet of him, anyway) visited the Land of Make-Believe.

** Also one of the other third grade teachers. Or possibly both.Ms. Sweetwater, notoriously so; Mrs. Fink may also count, given how pathetically easy their assignments tend to be.

* BegoneBribe: In "The Scare Your Pants Off Club," the kids circulate a petition to get the ''Scare Your Pants Off'' books, an {{Expy}} of ''Literature/{{Goosebumps}}, which a group of parents had removed, back in the library. Brain's way of soliciting signatures involves giving a long lecture to innocent bystanders. This prompts one to say, "We'll sign if you promise to stop explaining why we should!"
