"Prunella Gets It Twice"
"To Beat or Not to Beat"
During Bug Week, Binky becomes obsessed with catching a particular big blue butterfly.
The show begins with Arthur playing football with Binky in front of his house. He says that everyone has a favorite pastime, and that reading is his. All of a sudden, Binky calls "Hey, Arthur, your delivery's here" and a truckload of books is dumped onto the lawn. Then Arthur remarks that sometimes, a person's favorite things can get out of hand; it shows how Buster is obsessed with eating so he eats the "ultimate chocolate sundae", but gets a big stomach-ache as a result.
- Binky releases his butterfly collection at the end of this episode, although he is shown to have an interest in butterflies again in later episodes.
- Arthur references Moby-Dick when he says that Binky and the butterfly are like Captain Ahab and Moby Dick.
- At the beginning of the episode, Buster sees a large poster of a bee being carried past the window of the room of the school he is in. Yet when he looks out the window, the poster appears to be going into the school in the opposite direction.
- Once the poster is carried through the main door, it appears as if Mr. Haney and Miss Tingley (the two carriers) actually come into the music room immediately after entering, when they actually should have ended up in the hallway.
- The events of this story were retold in the song "Fly, Butterfly, Fly!," Track 7 of the album Arthur's Really Rockin' Music Mix.
