Hey, D.W.
( crash )
( yipping )
( laughing )
I always thought
about having a puppy
but I never thought
of what I'd name him.
( panting )
A name has to be just right.
It can affect the way
he thinks about himself.
Maybe "Champion."
Or maybe "Bionic Puppy."
I could name him "Buster."
No and I sure wouldn't
name him "Francine."
( barking like Francine )
And definitely not "Binky."
None of those names work.
He's just going to be my "Pal."
( barking )
( barking )
Wait, come back.
What are you doing?
Writing his name
on his dish.
Are you teaching him to read?
( gasps )
( barking )
You're naming
him "Pal"?
Do you have a better name?
How about "Frederick"?
He looks like
a "Frederick."
His name is Pal.
He already knows it.
Come here, Pal.
( panting )
He's not very
smart, is he?
Are you kidding?
He's a genius.
He hides it
very well.
Just wait till
he's trained.
( sniffing )
I'll be in college by then.
Will not.
You want to bet
a million dollars?
My rug!
You want to bet
12 million dollars?
Hi, Arthur!
( barking excitedly )
So that's
your new dog?
His name is Pal.
He looks more
like a "Steve."
( growling )
Does he do anything else?
Not yet, but I'll teach him
to catch frisbees upside down.
Now I'm just
house-training him.
You'd better train him.
They couldn't train
my cousin's dog
and her parents made it
live on a farm.
( growling )
( yells )
Pal, sit.
No, sit.
( laughing )
( Pal panting )
( yipping )
Yup, that's
one smart dog.
Where's he going in such
a hurry-- to do your homework?
He's just excited.
( gasps )
Yeah, he got excitement
all over the living room rug.
( gasps )
You were right!
"Frederick" is a bad name.
You should call him "Puddles."
wait till you
see this.
He learned all this
in only two hours!
Pal, speak.
( barking )
Good boy.
Pal, sit.
( barking )
He did it a minute ago.
Pal, sit.
( barks )
Okay, skip that one.
Pal, come.
( barks )
Well, he learned one.
Pal, speak.
( all sigh )
( growling )
Come on, boy.
This is your bed.
( yips )
don't you like it?
( whining )
what's wrong, boy,
are you scared?
( tapping )
( creaking )
( knocking )
( gasps )
tucking him in
for the night?
does he have to stay
in the garage, Dad?
he's scared,
let him stay in the house.
Please, please,
please, please?
Who's training whom?
Now you've
learned to beg.
( growling )
Boy, for
a new dog
he sure doesn't
smell new.
I hope these are enough.
Don't listen to her, Pal.
( panting )
Please don't hurt the carpet.
You heard what Francine said.
( panting )
( quietly ):
Where are you?
( D.W. humming )
( growling )
( D.W. screaming )
Are you okay?
Give me back my shoe.
Give it back.
Pal, let
her have it.
( crash )
( all gasp )
I thought
I was going
to have
a heart
I think you're
safe now, honey.
See, he's
the perfect dog.
He went
right to sleep.
Good night, Pal.
See you in the morning.
( Pal howling )
Pal, it's 3:00 a.m.
What's wrong?
He's okay.
Go back to sleep now.
( howling )
If he was in the garage,
we wouldn't hear him howl.
No, I'll stay with him
till he falls asleep.
( whining )
Don't forget
to close that gate.
Be a good dog, Pal,
show them how smart you are.
( murmuring )
( yips )
( panting )
( growling )
( panting )
( whining )
( yawns )
( barking )
Get in here
( D.W. clears throat )
Forget calling him "Puddles,"
how about "Lake"?
I'll clean it up, Mom.
Then you'll
need this.
No, you'll
need this.
( Dad sighs )
Pal was in the living room, too.
What on earth?
( gulps )
My catering schedules!
What's this?
It's the soap
from the bathroom.
You still
He's so
He ate the whole
living room?
Not ate--
just chewed on it.
My puppy was
so much trouble
that my mother
gave it away.
Probably to a farm.
( gasps )
( burps )
Arthur, we decided
Pal has to
live in the garage
until he's trained.
He'll be trained in no time,
I promise!
When he is,
he can come in
the house again.
Now, here's
the garage key.
( sighs )
Arthur, face it
he eats soap.
You owe me
$12 million.
Would you carry this?
D.W., did you take
the garage key?
Where's the
garage key?
I thought
it was here.
( growling )
Ah! My party platter!
Pal! No!
If that dog is untrainable
I don't know how
we can keep it.
So where's Pal
going to live
now, Dad?
look, that's where you're going
if you aren't good.
I always wanted a dog
but I never dreamed
you'd be like this.
you're better than any dog
I could ever imagine.
If you go, we'll never
see each other again.
We have to start working hard.
Welcome to "The Arthur
and Pal Show!"
What you're about
to see will astound
and amaze you.
And now, introducing my dog,
the new, improved Pal!
( growling )
This is going
to be a disaster.
It's now or never,
you can do it.
( clears throat )
Pal, speak.
( barks )
Seen it.
Pal, stay.
Pal, come.
( panting )
Pal, up.
Way to go.
Very good.
He can fetch, too.
You don't have
to show any more.
He won't have to live on a farm?
Not even in the garage.
You hear that, Pal?
He just found
the garage key.
Admit it, D.W.,
Pal's a lot smarter
than you think.
Well, maybe he is
above average.
( barking )
( gasps )
And now
In our third-grade class
we have lots of pets.
( chirping )
This is our pet rabbit.
When you hold him
you hold him
by the bottom
so he doesn't shiver.
Also, we have chicken eggs
that are about to hatch.
We also have live chicks
in our classroom.
( chirping )
In our classroom we have the
very small pet, the tadpoles.
They once lived in eggs
and they'll become frogs.
The tadpoles
are now eating the weeds.
These are all my pets:
three fish, two birds, one cat
and the dog and two lizards.
This is my cat and dog.
That one's J.C.
and that one's Ace.
This is all the pets I want.
A snake, a armadillo
a goldfish, a rabbit
a cat and a raccoon.
A turtle, a husky dog
this is a snake from China.
A small alligator
and an armadillo and a dolphin.
And now
Sometimes do you see things
that you just have to have?
You tell your parents
it's the most important thing
in the world
and you bug them
until they get it for you.
And then once you have it
it's not such
a big thing anymore.
Like hockey gloves
or a telescope
or Bionic Bunny walkie talkies.
The problem is these things
usually end up
buried in a closet
under a bed
or on Dad's tool shelf
in the basement.
It wouldn't happen this time
because I had to have those
Are you working
or lollygagging?
Oops, got to go.
Mom, why do we have to
go clothes shopping?
It's Fall and you both
need new coats.
Can't I wait
in the car?
Arthur, you're not a dog.
His nose is cold.
D.W. looks lovely
in the red coat--
great for classroom
or playground.
Mom, is she going to do this
for every coat?
Why don't you try this on?
It's fine, I'll take it.
Try it on!
Well, doesn't
that look nice!
Doesn't that
look nice, D.W.?
Arthur looks
very outdoorsy
in this rugged
green coat.
If he
stands still
he looks
like a tree.
Can I go to the toy store now?
All right, we'll be
over in a minute.
Is it a dream?
No, it's D.W.,
looking beautiful in blue--
the color of the sky
on a fall day.
Whoa, that was close!
can I have this, too?
Sure, Sweetie.
Oh, hi, Arthur.
It must be great
to get every toy
you want.
( sighs )
Time to go, Muffin.
Okay, Daddy.
Bye, Arthur!
Bye, Muffy.
Moon boots!
That's one small step
for Arthur
Wow, it is made of cheese!
( mooing )
They're called moon boots
and they're
only ten dollars!
Only ten dollars?
That's why you were
in the toy store.
I've got it
all figured out.
So if you
buy me moon boots
it would be good
for everyone.
We just bought
you new shoes.
These would actually prolong
the life of my sneakers!
And what about
your beautiful new coat?
And you can use them
if you want.
If you want moon boots,
you'll have to buy them
with your
own money.
You'll appreciate them more.
Like the way
you appreciate me.
"I owe myself four dollars
and thirty cents.
Sincerely, Arthur."
I was wondering where that went.
Hi, Grandma, look!
Arthur, they're lovely.
You're not here about
moon boots, are you?
Because your parents
already called me.
They did?
Yes, and they told me
not to give you any money.
While you're here, though
why don't we play a nice,
long game of canasta?
King me!
D.W., you have to get to
my back row to be kinged.
I just like saying it.
My calculations
may be off
but at the rate I'm going
by the time I save up
for the moon boots
I'll be 109 years old.
There are plenty of ways
you can earn money
right around here.
King me!
Arthur's ice-cold lemonade!
Come and hey!
Hey, you,
get back here!
Bring that back!
Kissing booth?
come find out your future!
I am gifted with the rare power
to see into the future!
By the time I get
money to buy moon boots
people will actually
be living on the moon.
Why couldn't
you have done that
when I had
the kissing booth?
I still have some
birthday money left.
You do?
Yes, and I could lend you some.
Of course, if I loan
you the money
you have to be my servant,
do my chores
And call me "your highness"
for a year.
Fat chance!
And I take my hug back.
Okay, but remember
it's a limited-
time offer.
Regular boots
Moon boots!
( cheerful music playing )
Enough said!
I just got to get moon boots!
The garage has
gotten quite cluttered
and needs sweeping.
Since it's not your chore
we can give you
two dollars to do it.
Thanks, Mom!
Hello, Mrs. Tibble.
If you have
a garage sale
you should
put up a sign.
I'll pay $5.00 for this.
Oh, it's not for
$10.00 and not a penny more.
Do I pay you
or your parents?
Oh, uh, me, you pay me.
The garage looks
very nice, Arthur.
see, a little work
and you're closer
to getting
your moon boots.
Your mother told me
you cleaned the garage.
Uh yeah, I did.
I hope you put
back where it was.
I hid Mom's birthday
present there.
It's a necklace.
Did you put it back?
Okay, great.
Maybe he'll forget
about the necklace?
( barking )
I didn't think so,
but it was worth a try.
Dad, I didn't exactly
put the necklace back
but I'm going
to go get it.
Okay, let me know
if you need any help.
So as soon as I
return the moon boots
I can get you
your $10.00 back.
You're a very
honest young man.
I can have it back?
Let me just
get this pile of
leaves picked up
before the wind
starts again.
I'll help.
I just get them raked up
and more fall.
Hey, Mrs. Tibble,
I think I have an idea
Hey, Arthur--
Cool! Moon boots!
Can I try them?
I have to do this
for Mrs. Tibble.
If I get all the leaves
she'll give me back
the necklace.
Okay, but can I try them
while you rake?
Sorry, Buster, but I need them.
I promised I'd get
all the leaves.
