"Prunella Sees the Light"
Six months, two weeks, and four days after it disappeared, D.W.'s snowball reappears in the Read family freezer. But how can she prevent it from melting or being stolen again?
- Before the title card, at the beginning, there is an "opening crawl" which is a parody on the Star Wars opening crawl at the beginning of the movies. There is also a "Recently in a galaxy far far away..." statement at the beginning of the episode which is a parody on the Star Wars statement "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." that appears at the beginning of the movies. Also, the title is a reference to "Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi".
- In this episode, D.W. finally admits that Arthur didn't take the snowball; however, this does not end the gag as it resurfaces in later seasons.
