** D.W. getting punched by Arthur and later getting a swing smashed into her face, largely due to her being such an unlikable brat. Not to mention her delayed reaction to being hit.

** S2's "Play it Again D.W." has D.W. obsessing over the song ''Crazy Bus''. It is [[EarWorm catchy]], [[MostAnnoyingSound but it drives Arthur crazy]]. In 2005, a Venezuelan video game called ''CrazyBus'' was released, and it's best known for the title screen music, which is both catchy and extremely obnoxious.

*** As of late, their reputation for hardly ''ever'' punishing D.W. when it's deserved has become a common criticism of both Dave and Jane.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Is D.W. just an immature kid who will grow out of her brattiness eventually, or an incredibly self-centered and ungrateful brat? It doesn't help that the show itself goes back and forth on this.
** On a similar note, is the fact that D.W. is perpetually a KarmaHoudini indicative of the Reads being bad parents, or, worse still, that they're guilty of ParentalFavoritism? Given what an inherently spoiled trouble maker they've allowed D.W. to become while ignoring what a spoiled brat she is after a while you have to wonder if the Reads really are just too stupid to see D.W. for the callous, spoiled brat that she is or if D.W.'s really just that good at manipulating them or if it's a little bit of both.

** David Read in the S1 episode "Arthur's Family Vacation". Did he truly want to go on vacation with his family, or was he perhaps using the vacation as an excuse to go to a special restaurant known for its lobster?

** 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. To get an idea of how much she's universally despised, many viewers actually '''''[[AndTheFandomRejoiced cheered]]''''' and took the side of her attackers when [[TakeThatScrappy she got punched in "Arthurs's Big Hit" and smashed with the swing in "Attack of the Turbo Tibbles"]]. It's also worth noting that for the latter example, the Tibble Twins were the ones who did that and it's considered to be one of their most awesome moments.

** The Tibble Twins are basically gender bender versions of D.W. and like D.W. they have no redeeming qualitiesJ who [[KarmaHoudini never get punished]], and they're constantly roughhousing or arguing with each other.

* TastesLihkeDiabetes: The ice cream shop Yumbobo in "Brain Freeze" - it's got a cute penguin mascot, fancy ice cream names, and overly cheerful workers.

** "Return of the King" essentially is a StealthPun regarding Arthur pulling a sword out of a stone, because...y'know, Myth/KingArthur. Then a few months later, an episode of ''Series/MisterRogersNeighborhood'' featured Arthur being a prominent focus, and when he's in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, one thing he has to do...is assure King Friday that he is ''not'' King Arthur.

* ArchivePanic: The show started in 1996 with 30 episodes for season 1. The second season has 20 episodes, and the third season has 15 to bring the show up to the syndication-mandated 65 episodes. Subsequent seasons had 10 episodes each. The show hit it's 100th episode in the middle of Season 7 in 2002. It's already Season 19 and there are 225 episodes. And Season 20 is still in the works. Calculating, each episode is 24 minutes long. That makes the entire runtime 5400 minutes, or exactly 90 hours, at the moment. Put into a marathon, it will run 3 days and 18 hours nonstop. And that's not counting the two hour-long specials '''and''' the direct-to-DVD movie.
