Dora Winifred Read. We learn this in "D.W. the Picky Eater" where she flings a bowl of spinach onto the head of a waiter, and her mom says, "Dora Winifred Read!!!"
What episode has the South Park version of Arthur? Holy moley! Does he talk like a South Park character?
My favorite episode is the postmodern, send-up one with the green potato chips, "The Chips Are Down", I believe. Favorite line: Binky, in the audience at intermission, learning that his tough friends think his ballet performance was in fact cool, flinging off his trenchcoat and crying "I've got a swan to catch!"
I went to Toys R Us to buy stuff for Aviva's birthday, and to my horror, everything was branded. You can't just buy party hats. You can only buy My Little Pony party hats or Spiderman 2 party hats or Power Rangers party hats or Barbie party hats. This infuriated me. I realized the only branded objects Aviva would actually groove on would be Arthur ones. But they didn't have any.
I love D.W.'s behavior -- she's tough, sassy, smart, and refuses to back down. She's a perfect counterpoint to Arthur's studious, nervous earnestness. Bratty isn't the worst thing in the world. (But I'm all about the strong women).
