|Tina the Talking Tabby|
Electronic stuffed animal
|First Appeared (cartoon)|
Tina the Talking Tabby is a toy cat D.W. Read wanted for Christmas in Arthur's Perfect Christmas. However, when she wrote her Christmas list to Santa Claus, he was unable to find Tina in any store because they were all sold out, so he got her Quackers, a similar toy. (Though when shopping with Arthur, Mrs. Read makes a comment of there being one thing that was sold out.) D.W. really wanted Tina, but eventually came to accept Quackers as being "kinda cute." During the Christmas season, Tina was heavily advertised in a radio jingle. It annoyed Arthur, but D.W. enjoyed it.
