Differences between the book and the cartoon
In the cartoon, everyone celebrated outside in the Deegans' backyard. In the book, they celebrate inside the house.
In the book, there is more information on the party. This includes the fact that Prunella at first wanted to invite only half of her guests, but instead invited everyone for half of the time. There are also more presents shown than in the cartoon, including a poster of a halfback football player that Brain gives her.
In the book, Binky was with everyone when Arthur asked if he was going to sing a stupid song the next day, but he wasn't with them in the cartoon.
