** In "Arthur Rides the Bandwagon", Grandma Thora tries to help Arthur feel better by showing the Pet Rock fad from the 70s and how it was a big deal during Mr. Read's time. This was an actual fad that many parents from that time can relate to.



** The same could be said of Arthur's parents, who frequently fail to discipline D.W.'s bratty behavior.

* PublicHaterPrivateFan: Arthur gets addicted to [[Series/{{Teletubbies}} The Love Ducks]]. He secretly pretends to hate it while watching it instead of the much more mature "[[Franchise/BatMan Dark Bunny]]" cartoon. [[spoiler: At the end of the episode, Francine turns out to have also been a fan all along (despite leading the mockery when Arthur was caught watching it).]]

* NoTellMotel: The Ocean View Hotel in "Arthur's Family Vacation" (which ''always'' has a vacancy) is like this; there's no view of the ocean, the room has pictures coming off the hinges, lousy mattresses on the bed that sink under weight, leaky ceilings, and an abnormally small pool (to which D.W. comments "[[SarcasmMode Our bathtub is bigger than this]]!") But being a kids' show, there are [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything no sexual references]].
