**D.W. and James could be this, especially in light of "Kiss and Tell," wherein D.W. tries to get James to kiss her so she can feel like a princess in a fairytale. D.W. and Bud Compson are this to some fans as well.
**Fern and George may be this, as more recent episodes show them hanging out together more often and showing concern for each other when not together (see "The Case of the Girl With the Long Face.")

*** Likewise, the ''D.W. The Picky Eater'' [[VideoGame/LivingBooks Living Book]] is tagged as FanonDiscontinuity by fans of the Living Books franchise, as it was made by a different company and does not use the Mohawk engine. Fans of D.W. does not care about what the fans of the Living Books franchise think and consider it as good as, if not better than, ''Arthur's Reading Race''.

* FandomRivalry: Ever since the rights to producing the show changed hands from Cookie Jar to Nine Story, the bronies have been picking on it and it's fans. It appears that there are two groups of haters here- one being bitter about how Marc Brown chose to terminate Cookie Jar's rights and grant the rights to Nine Story instead of transferring the production rights to DHX (which is incidentally the company behind [=FiM=]) when DHX bought up Cookie Jar, and another just sees Arthur as yet another show competing with [=FiM=] for awards. It's easy to weed them out: those who dismiss Arthur for "not being as good since it changed production companies" fall into the former, while those that're downright condescending to the show (saying things like "You're/They're still making the show?" in a sarcastic tone) belong to the latter.

** D.W. is this to many longtime fans for the same reasons as the Tibble twins, rarely getting punished for her actions and often acting superior to others.

** The recent Announcement that Arthur and co. will be aging up and moving on to fourth grade. Many fans do not like the idea at all.

**Despite many fans' dislike of her, there are times D.W. is this, such as during "Operation: D.W." when she showed legitimate fear over having tubes placed in her ears (after being brave throughout most of the episodes). She also showed this tendency in "D.W.'s Furry Freakout"; she clearly loved and wanted to bond with the kitten she found, [[spoiler: who turned out to belong to Arthur's piano teacher]], but was too young to understand cat behavior. Several similar examples exist, such as:
***"So Long, Spanky," when her eponymous pet bird died.
***"The Last Day," when she has a meltdown because of fears regarding kindergarten.

** Francine's attempts to sing and drum at the same time, when she can do both quite well by themselves; so far her efforts to improve on this have not gone well.

** In late July / early August 2016, a number of rather naughty ''Arthur'' memes began spreading rather heavily around to the degree of making national news, and WGBH was [[http://www.avclub.com/article/those-filthy-arthur-memes-hurt-public-televisions--240581 not happy about it]].
* MemeticPsychopath: Mr. Ratburn is something of this in-universe, but it tapers off a little as the series goes on and Arthur and his friends get to know him a bit better.

* MemeticMutation: ''Arthur'' is a very popular subject for WebAnimation/YouTubePoop, especially S4's "Arthur's Big Hit." In mid-2016, ''Arthur'' screenshots became a popular source of memes, many of which are NFSW like [[http://imgur.com/q1IpW4g this one]].

** A season 2 episode has Buster drawing a comic he calls "The Big Clumsy Moose With Big Feet Named Franny". In 2006 PBS Kids began airing a cartoon called "Franny's Feet" about a girl called Franny who wears peoples shoes and gets transported to places relevant to the episode.
