** Subverted from Season 16 onward; depending on who you ask, the flash animation may be considered a step backward for the series, lacking the fluidity of the show's hand-drawn animation with a lot of the characters often coming off as off-model as a result.

** This displacement even extends over to the ''LivingBooks'' titles -- some people think that the games were based on the show, despite [[OlderThanTheyThink predating the show by several years]].

** S5 is considered a low point by many longtime fans, primarily for having what many consider a large amount of weak and forgettable episodes, with quite a few plots feeling really forced---for instance, there's one that focuses entirely on Buster being unable to sleep, and there's another where Muffy attempts to hang out with teenagers. The one most audiences ''really'' hate, however, is "Nerves of Steal", which ends with an all-out DownerEnding. The fact it was the first season produced without Joe Fallon on the writing staff didn't exactly help matters.
** Season 6 is also considered by some of the other longtime fans to be this instead of Season 5, due to the prevalence of episodes written by ScapegoatCreator Dietrich Smith, this being the first time Arthur's VA is replaced, and [[GainaxEnding the one episode]] ''The Boy Who Cried Comet!'', which some fans consider as "the worst episode in the entire series".

matters. Season 6 is also considered by some of the other longtime fans to be this instead of Season 5, or sometimes both of them, due to the prevalence of episodes written by ScapegoatCreator Dietrich Smith, this being the first time Arthur's VA is replaced, and [[GainaxEnding the one episode]] ''The Boy Who Cried Comet!'', which some fans consider as "the worst episode just being fairly weak overall in the entire series".a similar vein to 5.

*** On a related note, "Arthur's First Sleepover" has a scene where Arthur tries to bring a TV into the tent, but Mr. Read tells him he can't do that. With the rise of cell phones, this may very well have turned that fantasy into a reality.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKuAsndvxvs This scene]] from the Season 17 episode "Binky's Music Madness", where Binky listens to a band called Bang On A Trash Can All Stars and has an...[[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs unusual reaction]] to it has seen [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1sbZ66UMqc several]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_TWwbv6VvU remixes]] where Binky listens to other music/songs and has the same reaction, similar to a previous ''WesternAnimation/PeppaPig'' trend.

** In "The Half-Baked Sale", Mr. Morris injures his leg when D.W. and Arthur hide Grandma's cookies inside the janitor's closet, but luckily he doesn't break it. Come "April 9th", he does break it in a fire at Lakewood Elementary and is forced to retire as a result.

** The producers may be trying to fix this. For Season 20, they switched from 9 Story, which animated Season 16 to Season 19, to Oasis Animation, which did the pre-production for Season 12 to Season 15. Based off preview images, the animation does look more hand-drawn.
