Added DiffLines:

* HypeBacklash: The U.K. release of the original film came a few months after its massively popular North American release and while it was also a huge box-office hit there, the local critics weren't as enamored with it as their U.S. counterparts. Alongside Creator/PeterCook, Creator/DudleyMoore had been a U.K. star since TheSixties but had only just come into international success as a solo act, and some critics felt he (and Sir John Gielgud for that matter) was wasting his talents in broader, glossier American comedies. It's a downplayed case of AmericansHateTingle and also owes a bit to the fact that U.K. viewers would have more quickly identified it as a GenreThrowback to such works as Creator/PGWodehouse's Jeeves and Wooster stories.

Added DiffLines:

* NiceCharacterMeanActor: Some who disagree with Steven Crowder's far-right politics may feel this way. For those who don't know, Crowder voiced The Brain in seasons 5-6.

** S2's "D.W. Goes to Washington" is this for right-wingers who believe that Bill Clinton (who the president in the show is based on and was president at the time the show premiered) is a serial rapist, and behind what these people call the "Clinton Body Count".

* ScienceMarchesOn: S1's "Arthur's Chicken Pox" was made in 1996 when most children watching would probably catch it themselves. Nowadays, virtually all babies are given the vaccine (introduced in the US in 1995), so modern children will never go through the disease.

** "Arthur's Big Hit" is a ''big'' source of this. You can [[KarmaHoudini get away with anything]] as long as you're the victim of DisproportionateRetribution. Your friends will ''never'' be exasperated by your [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling little sibling's]] behaviour and think s/he deserves it. If you punch your sibling, getting punched by someone ''entirely different'' for an ''entirely different reason'' isn't bullying, it's LaserGuidedKarma. There's a reason that this episode is one of the most hated episodes of the series.

* SugarWiki/NoProblemWithLicensedGames: The UsefulNotes/PlayStation title, ''Arthur: Ready To Race'' was at least decent, and the PC/Mac titles (particularly the LivingBooks titles) {{avert|edTrope}}s TheProblemWithLicensedGames trope completely as many children who grew up in the late '80s and '90s were introduced to Arthur by means of the Living Books titles.

** Arthur's reaction to seeing the Love Ducks in "That's a Baby Show", where he seems almost entranced after finding he actually likes the show. Granted, the show has a highly [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs psychedelic]] tone and look to it, but for a moment he seems just a little too mindblown by what he's just watched.
** Any time in the Kate and Pal episodes where the adults and older children talk, [[TheUnintelligible usually talking in nonsensical babble from the perspective of the pets and babies]]. On one hand it's justified as Kate and Pal recognize only some words and phrases spoken by the adults. On the other hand, it can be really distracting at times, which may be why it's less prominent in later episodes.
