Hey, D.W.
( crash )
( door slams )
( door slams )
( door slams )
( knock at door )
You're driving
everyone crazy
with all this
banging around!
I'm just trying to get rid
of my loose tooth.
It'll fall out
when it's ready.
Now it's bedtime.
And no more horsing around.
I mean it.
Just a minute.
I'll be right out.
You look so weird.
Okay, maybe, but if you were
the only kid in the third grade
who still had all his baby
teeth, you'd be desperate, too.
( bird singing )
( thunder )
( whispering ):
Mom? Dad?
You guys awake?
( in loud whisper ):
Mom! Dad!
Are you up yet?
We are now.
What's the matter?
I have an announcement to make.
I, Arthur Read, have
my very first
loose tooth!
That's nice,
That means it'll
fall out soon.
Now please, let's all
go back to sleep.
( alarm rings )
( whispering ):
I finally have
a loose tooth.
That's great,
( sneezes )
( shrieks )
My tooth just
fell out!
( all talking at once )
Children, how many of you
have lost a baby tooth?
All ( except Arthur ):
I have.
That looks like everyone
everyone except Arthur.
( children giggling )
Well, we're going to watch
a video about our teeth.
All is quiet in
Toothtown until
Just the place to build
a little home.
Just need to get rid
of these pesky teeth.
Oh, no! the plaque monster
is attacking Toothtown.
Looks like a job
for the flighty
Fluoride Scour Rangers!
Go, go, Scour Rangers! ♪
( growls )
It's scouring time!
( growls )
We can't beat the plaque monster
like this!
We need toothbrush power!
( growling )
How dare you, Scour Rangers!
Now try some
floss on for size.
( groans )
( screams )
Between ages four and seven
most children begin to lose
their baby teeth.
except Arthur.
( kids laugh )
Look at the cool
tricks I can do
with the space in my teeth.
( slurping )
( whistles )
Ooh ahh
( slurping )
Whoa! Ooh wow!
Hey, guys,
check this out.
( slurping )
Hey, I can do that!
( slurping )
Me, too!
Let's see who can squirt
the farthest.
Go on, Arthur,
it's your turn.
( slurping )
( sloshing )
( kids laughing )
Does anyone have
a bib for the baby?
Would you like
milk and cookies?
No, thanks,
I'm not really hun
Did you say cookies?
The crunchy kind?
They are.
Can I make a request
for dinner?
I don't see why not.
Here you go-- extra
well done steak
just like
you requested.
( Arthur gulps )
Still there.
Try some corn
on the cob.
Time for dessert--
peanut brittle
and rock candy.
( crunching )
Hey, Arthur--
I know how
you can get rid
of that tooth.
Turn into a shark.
( growls )
Their teeth
always fall out
and they grow
new ones.
I learned that
at the aquarium
and I got this.
Well, if it isn't
Arthur the baby!
Yeah-- Here comes
the baby! ♪
Not so fast.
It just so happens
I lost a tooth last night.
Way to go!
Oh, yeah?
I want proof.
It's a tooth,
all right.
Seems awful
big, though.
Let me see that!
( struggling, straining )
He must have really liked
that tooth
to make a necklace
out of it!
( laughter )
Are you nuts?
Forget it!
I need somebody
to punch me there.
No way!
Buster, this tooth
is driving me bonkers.
If you were a real pal
you'd punch me
in the mouth.
Well okay.
Binky, I need you
to do me a big favor.
What is it?
Punch me in the mouth.
You want me to punch you?
It'll be a pleasure.
Now, hold still
This is going to hurt.
I can't do it!
My new tooth-
removing machine.
I invented it
especially for you.
a demonstration.
Put your head here.
Then I press here
( buzzing, clicking )
( bang )
and voila!
( gulps hard )
( whining, beeping )
Hey, come
back here!
( screaming ):
Self-destruct! Self-destruct!
( explosion )
Uh no machine
is perfect.
Mom! Dad!
I think my tooth's
getting looser-- look!
You need
You're going
to the dentist today.
Ah, going to the dentist.
Very good.
Boy, do I feel
sorry for you.
Yeah, me, too.
If they don't
fall out
they yank
them out.
( Francine laughs
maliciously )
( laughing evilly )
I bet it'll be
fine, Arthur.
Arthur read, Dr. Sozio
will see you now.
Are you
all right?
Let's do it!
So what seems to be
the problem, Arthur?
I think something's wrong,
because I'm eight years old
and I still have
all my baby teeth.
Ah, I see.
One's real
loose, though.
Are you going
to yank it out?
Let's take
a look.
I don't think
that will be necessary.
Sure is a stubborn
little baby tooth, huh?
Having baby teeth
doesn't make you
a baby, Arthur.
I didn't lose my first one
until I was nearly nine.
Everyone is different.
Yours will fall out very soon.
Just wait.
Well, if it isn't
Arthur the baby!
Did he yank
it out?
Did you bleed?
No-- some children
don't lose their teeth
until they're nine.
Everybody is different.
I'm the tooth fairy!
Whoever I throw the ball to
loses a tooth.
But Arthur
can't play.
He's way too young.
The tooth fairy
doesn't come
to babies.
Okay, but if
you ask me
now you're
being the baby.
Arthur's right,
I'd rather play
softball anyway.
You can't
leave me!
I'm the tooth fairy.
( gasps )
Are you okay?
I'm really sorry!
It's okay, Francine.
It's just
what I needed.
What are you giving me this for?
You're the tooth fairy,
aren't you?
That will be 25 cents, please.
And now
When you grow up,
you get bigger stuff
than when you're little.
You get bigger teeth
than when you're little.
The bigger we get,
we need bigger teeth.
Because our mouth gets big, we
need bigger teeth for our mouth.
I lost my tooth and I was so
excited that I swallowed it.
I pulled it out all by myself.
It feels weird.
It hurt a little.
It feels like there's
a hole in your mouth.
If you want it to come out
real bad, you just pull it out.
"Once there was
a girl, Margaret.
"She was surprised
when the dentist said
"she had a loose tooth.
"One night Maggie's parents
came into her bedroom
"and said if she didn't pull
the tooth out
"the dentist would.
Maggie pulled the tooth out."
The end.
The tooth fairy takes them
from under your pillow
and puts them on houses.
Everybody imagines
what she does with them.
I think she grinds them up
to make magic.
I made a place where everything
gets made out of teeth.
The tooth fairy makes
statues of people
and then they take the teeth
and put them in the mouth
of the statue.
And now
Hello, you might know me as
D.W.'s imaginary friend Nadine.
I'm here because
it would be unkind
to present this story
without a friendly warning.
We are about to unfold
the story of a girl
who wished to be grown-up.
Like the time she said
she was grown-up enough
to help her father.
Let me help, daddy.
I can help.
I'm big enough to help.
Okay, but take
one at a time.
( grunting )
We're just supposed to take one.
That's because
he thinks I'm a baby.
Where's the cake?
( cakes splatter )
This is a story to thrill you,
shock you, maybe even
Hey, Nadine--
look at me!
Be careful, D.W.
don't do anything
to hurt
your Mommy's suit.
I won't.
Don't be a worrywa oh!
( thump )
If you do not care to subject
your nerves to such a strain
well, we warned you.
( croaks )
( barks )
Wait, come back!
Boy, look at how it sparkles!
They're made of
actual stones.
Stones! Wow!
What's that mean?
You're kidding, right?
Of course I am.
( gasps )
( gulps )
Oh, it's only you.
Arthur, what's a stone?
A stone is a rock.
A rock like you
dig up in the yard?
Yes, honey?
Arthur ate
a piece of cake.
What's a stone?
Why didn't you have an apple?
( coughs )
I was too weak
from hunger to chew it.
I needed
something soft.
What kind of stone, D.W.?
A stone like in
beautiful earrings
that every girl should have.
I didn't ask anything.
How could you say no
when I didn't ask anything?
Well, why can't
I have earrings?
You're not old enough
and they'll turn
your ears green.
I don't care if
I have green ears.
They just aren't you, D.W.
( gurgling )
I like your earrings.
Do you like my earrings?
What do you think?
My earrings!
How did you get
those on your ears?
I didn't make holes
in my ears.
I glued them to my hair.
( gasps )
Ow! That hurts!
You're pulling
my hair!
What have we
always told you
about glue, D.W.?
Glue is for paper, not for skin,
and never put it in your soup.
I just wanted you to see
how beautiful I'd look-- ow!
I told you
not to use glue.
D.W., I'll make you a deal.
If we go shopping
for earrings
you'll know I've
got to have them.
And if I think you should wait?
Then I'll wait-- promise.
Announcer ( over loudspeaker ):
Welcome to All In One Mart
the store big enough
to swallow your town.
I thought
that was you.
Uh, what
a surprise.
Yes, imagine a high-class man
like myself shopping here.
But you can't
be too rich
or too cheap.
There it is!
As my accountant, can you spare
your best customer five minutes?
Or should I take my
business elsewhere?
Just five minutes, D.W., sorry.
We need to make
changes in my taxes.
If I wanted to
give away that much
if we want to
seem grown-up
we have to wait
But he always talks
for an hour!
I could go there
and be back
before she even
knows I'm gone.
( man still talking )
All In One Mart values
all our customers
but break it
and you've bought it.
It never seems
to get any closer.
Hey, that looks
like Arthur.
( laughing )
We should go back
to your mom.
Yeah, okay.
Specials on preworn sneakers
for lazy people.
Are we lost?
No, of course not.
This way.
I could talk
all day
but like Einstein said,
time is money.
This way.
We passed this three times.
No, I would have
remembered that.
It looks like Arth thur.
I'll be able
to see Mom
from up there.
If you've lost your child
come to our
lost child department.
And why not buy a new toy
for that poor, frightened
child that you lost?
Attention smart shoppers,
free samples available all day
at our water fountain.
Big sale in our book department.
Books without vowels
now half-price.
Come on.
Who needs air conditioning
when jet turbines are on sale
in our wind department.
Watch the screens.
Mom is out there
( beeping )
Look at all
those clumsy people.
There they are!
There's your mom.
You don't belong in here!
If you'd been
figuring out
where your mom was
instead of looking at
those dumb earrings
I know, I know!
What if we
never find her?
Why couldn't
it have been
that clunky Arthur
who got lost
instead of
my darling D.W.?
What if she doesn't
even miss me?
Whatever happened to D.W.?
You remember:
I lost her
20 years ago.
That's when it got
so nice and
quiet around here.
( slurping, munching,
smacking lips )
I'm starving.
Me, too.
( murmuring )
( grunts )
( grunting )
Free desserts at aisle 12!
Free desserts--
let's go!
Where's aisle 12?
Sorry, no samples left.
What if we never find
our way out of here?
It wouldn't be
so bad.
They have everything here
you need to live on.
It's the phantom of the store!
Nadine, we've
got everything
we ever wanted.
But I miss my mommy and daddy
and Kate and Pal
and even Arthur.
We're alone and
hungry and freezing.
Maybe we should
move away
from the frozen food?
Who doesn't like
warm, carbonated milk?
It lulls you to sleep
and burps you, too.
Emily, hi!
Hi, D.W.
You here to buy more earrings?
No, I'm returning mine.
( gasps )
We have to go.
Chocolate-covered cabbage.
It's the dessert
that makes you go "blech!"
You should ask her
where your mommy is.
I'm not a baby, Nadine!
Maybe sometimes
grown-ups ask for help, too.
Emily, wait!
Did you see
my mom anywhere?
She's talking to Mr. Crosswire
by the entrance.
Thanks, uh where's that?
Go back to the end
and turn that way.
There she is!
That was easy.
I told you
I would find her.
You worry
too much.
Well, my five minutes are up.
Thanks for waiting
so quietly
for five
whole minutes.
That was only
five minutes?
Ready to look at earrings?
I thought it over--
I don't really need earrings.
I'm impressed!
That's a very
grown-up attitude.
Thanks-- can we do
lunch instead?
Right now in our
free sample department
everything is half-price.
And now
The idea for Pal came
when we wanted to get a pet
at our house,
and I invented a pet
that Arthur could have.
I start with this oval shape,
and then I give him eyes
and a little triangle
for his nose.
And Pal's a pretty happy dog,
so we'll make him smiling.
And we'll add his ears.
Now we'll give him his collar,
and he's off for an adventure.
