"D.W.'s Baby" is the second half of the eleventh episode in the first season of Arthur.


When Baby Kate was born, D.W. felt neglected and wondered if anyone would even miss her if she ran away.


Arthur tells D.W. how she acted when Kate was born, starting after Kate was brought home for the first time in "Arthur's Baby". D.W. is excited, but frustrated when she doesn't get to help with Kate. Kate's crib is moved into D.W.'s room, but D.W. soon finds drawbacks to sharing a room with a baby. Her room and belongings smell like dirty diapers, which grosses her out; and she needs to keep toys with small parts away from Kate, so she can't easily play with her; and Kate cries loudly during the night, keeping D.W. awake and causing her insomnia. D.W. soon becomes jealous over the attention Kate is getting. She tries to get rid of Kate when the Tibbles suggest that she should blame Kate for something that she didn't do. When that doesn't work, she runs away thinking that the family doesn't need her, and plans to go away to a small island. Grandma Thora volunteers to drive and row her there, but when she makes D.W. realize that Kate won't have a sister, only a brother, D.W. decides to return home and decides that she'll show Kate how to do everything except changing her diapers, which Mom and Dad will do. Events in the present appear as originally seen in "Arthur's Baby".
