Have you ever had something really embarrassing happen to you?
Once, I was in the school play and I forgot my lines!
Don't forget me - broccoli - a great source of vitamins and minerals!
..a protein, from the banana group. I mean...
I'm a fruit from the chicken family... Oh-oh.
Once, I told everyone I could play Rachmaninov, blindfolded.
Miss Krasny asked me to do it.
What, no blindfold? ..Sorry. Can't do it.
I'll never forget the time I had to take DW to my scout meeting.
You're tying it wrong. Ask somebody for help.
But the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to me didn't happen.
It was just a dream.
6 times 8 is 48. Carry the 4.
So the answer is...108!
-Very good, Binky.
Here, Binky. Go to the office. Miss Tingly will sew them.
Yes, Binky is wearing underwear, just like everyone else in this room.
So, anything interesting happen at school today, Arthur?
Oh, no! I'll be late for school!
I'm sorry I'm late, Mr Ratburn.
-My mom forgot to wake me...
Being late is one thing, but not wearing any trousers is another!
What a horrible dream!
It was so scary. I hardly slept.
Quiet down! Today, we'll be watching a film about microscopic organisms.
CHILDREN: Wow! A movie!
'Many life forms are so small they cannot be seen without a microscope.
'The amoeba's a single-cell life form
'found in moist dirt and stagnant water.
'It reproduces by splitting into two in a process known as fission.'
-Come back! Come back!
-Come back... Come back...
-(Wake up. The movie's over.)
-Twice in one day!
-That's not so bad.
I dreamt about a planet of monsters shaped like tubes of toothpaste.
-I couldn't brush for a week.
-What will I do? I'm scared to go to bed.
..I know! Don't sleep. Can't dream if you don't sleep.
-Good night, Arthur.
# On his farm he had some giraffes Ee-i ee-i O
# With a... # Oh, forget it!
I'll get you, Verminator ..After I take a little nap.
Surrender, class. There is no escape.
CHILDREN: NO! DON'T!
No-one can help you now!
Away from that blackboard, or I...
-Yes, you'll want pants.
Now, shake a leg or you'll be late.
It even happens when I'm a superhero!
Go to sleep in your pants. That way, you won't forget to put them on.
Have you seen Nadine's teddy bear?
It's pink, about this big... Why are you wearing your pants to bed?
Er...because they're stiff. I'm breaking them in.
Really? Cool! Mom was gonna wash my pants to make them softer,
-but I'll wear them to bed instead.
In fact, my new boots hurt too. I think I'll sleep in those tonight.
They're gonna call me names like Boxer-boy and Arty-no-pants!
-I'll have to move school!
-You won't go to school without your pants!
-But I keep dreaming about it.
-Not after today. I know how to cure you.
I'll just hypnotise you.
You are getting very sleepy.
You are not afraid of losing your pants.
Arthur! Wake up. You were asleep. Did you have the dream?
-No. I don't think so.
-Then it worked! Just like TV!
You cured me, Buster! I'm cured!
Hey. How did I do that?
Maybe your mom uses too much starch.
Those pants need some fabric softener.
-They're trying to eat me!
You are now awake!
Great(!) Now I'm afraid of being EATEN by my pants!
-Promise you won't tell anyone about this.
-Your secret is safe with me.
-What's so funny?
Hey, do you have your pants on?!
Of course I do! Why shouldn't I?!
You might have forgotten to wear them! Buster told us!
What?! Well, it's not true!
Hi. I'm glad you sat there. Buster told me about your dream.
Apparently, you have a pathological fear of embarrassment.
This can't be real! I'm dreaming!
Buster! I'm having a nightmare!
-Why do you think that?
-Because everyone knows about my dream!
-Not everyone. I just told a few kids.
-How could you?! You promised!
I needed some advice to help you.
This is SO embarrassing! Everyone's laughing at me. That's what I... Ow!
Come on, Arthur. To the kitchen.
I'm sorry, Arthur. I shouldn't have told anyone. I feel terrible.
It's OK. You were trying to help. But now I have to change schools!
Here they are, good as new. Even better. You were missing a button.
-Thanks, Mrs MacGrady. Is there a back exit I could use?
There's an old saying. A banana without its peel is still a banana.
-What does that mean?
-It means people get embarrassed all the time.
You're still Arthur - a smart, kind boy - with or without your pants.
-It's been a week since I had an underwear nightmare.
Ripping your pants cured you.
Now you'll know what to do if you ever have the nightmare. Let's go.
Buster... I think you forgot something.
Here we go again.
I want everyone to think about a special dream and then draw it.
It's easy to figure out Buster's special dream.
Buster, have you done your homework?
Oh, no! Robot! I almost forgot!
Don't worry, master.
I know the dream Muffy would like.
More tea? Gladly. I adore your dress.
Thank you. You have wonderful taste.
But Francine's is the most obvious!
Don't forget your lunch!
Thanks, Dad! Giddy-up!
MY bike is the most powerful!
How many speeds does YOUR bike have?! MINE has 15!
Well, MINE has half-horsepower assist.
All I can say is... NEIGH!
A horse?! You've never even been on a horse!
Just wait, Binky! Just you wait!
-I did it! I saved 30 whole dollars!
-Is it for something special?
Riding lessons! You said you'd take me!
-I'm never eating again!
-We're not breaking our promise.
-We want you to learn.
-But the lessons are during the day!
- We're at work and can't take you. - Hi, guys!
BUT, if someone older - someone kind and generous - would take you,
that would be different.
-Whatever it is, I'm not doing it.
-I can't believe I have to do this!
-Mom and Dad are paying.
There goes my new fall wardrobe! I could have gotten my ears pierced!
At least I could have had some say in how they spent their savings!
-It really makes me mad...
-You have a hole in your pants!
-This place is creepy.
-Are you here for the riding lessons?
-I'm Stanley, the instructor. Ready for some fun?
We love fun. ..Right, Francine?
-You can't have too much fun! That's what I say.
-Relax! It's only a boy!
-First, you have to meet the horses. This guy's Bronco.
-Can we pet him?
Sure. Just remember, horses spook easily. Be very gentle.
It's just like velvet. Or a nice cotton/poly blend.
-Nice and easy.
-Let me try!
Is he a wild stallion or something?!
He's usually gentle. He's all yours.
All set? Left hand on the reins...
left foot in the stirrup...and up.
It'll be a lot easier when you're taller.
Wow! This is really, really...high!
Hey! Whoa! How do you make him stop?
Come on, Bronco. How do you make him go?
-You have to show him who's boss.
Did you hear that? ..I'm the boss.
Huh? OK! No pressure. Whatever.
So how did it go? Are you the queen of the wild frontier?
-I'm kind of tired. Can we talk about it tomorrow?
It was really great! We mostly walked today,
but Stanley might let me try to trot tomorrow.
Are you scared, Francine?
-Then open your eyes.
-You won't fall. I'll be right here. OK?
Stop! It's too fast!
Next time, we'll take it slower.
This is easy! I could do it for ever!
You've seen her demolish the competition,
now the ruler of the ring - Francine Frensky, Olympic rider!
All you folks who thought Francine was too bossy... Yes, Muffy - you.
..or who didn't believe she could ride a horse... Binky!
..eat your hearts out!
Francine's in the Olympics, and you're not! But wait!
Look! It's Francine's sister,
who's not only older and taller, but a better rider!
-Get out of here! This is MY dream!
-Not any more. Let the games begin!
Much better! Even Bronco's starting to notice!
Really? Even though I dropped the reins?!
That happens to everyone.
OK, Bronco, back to the barn and no more leaves.
If you're willing to work an hour each day, I'd give you free lessons.
You're kidding! What about Francine?
She's not at your level and we only offer this to our best students.
-I just don't like horses any more.
You're quitting your lessons? You have another week to go!
-I'd rather ride my bike.
-Stanley said you were improving.
Really? I thought he said I wasn't quite up to your level. Excuse me.
Are you sure you don't want to come?
I'm gonna hang out with my friends. I feel like having some fun.
-What do YOU want to do?
-I don't know. What do you wanna do?
-I don't know. What do you wanna do?
-I don't know.
-What do YOU wanna do?
Arthur! Mum says if you're not doing anything, we can play covered wagon.
-Sorry! I have to sort out my socks.
-< Socks? That sounds like fun!
It'll be quicker with three of us!
-I'll play horsey!
-It's not called horsey!
It's called seven days in the desert with wild horses who run free
-and a little girl who...
-Aren't you gonna ask me to come?
Francine, do you wanna come today?
If you're gonna keep bugging me, I'll have to.
Remember, I don't feel like riding. I'm just going to watch.
-She's still being stubborn.
-She's jealous that I'm a better rider.
-She won't get better till she gets on a horse.
-I have an idea.
Hey, Bronco, did you miss me?
I said, did you miss me? ..That's better.
-Oh, hi! I was just going.
-First, you might want to hear Katherine's idea.
It's a lot of work for me to take care of all these horses.
-Maybe you could help me out and
-could give you a riding lesson.
YOU?! Teach ME?!
This is my favourite. You have it.
Thanks. I've got 15.
If we add in your 30 and I baby-sit every night for the next three years,
we could buy a horse of our own!
We could keep him in the basement. The storage bin is like a stall.
-We could call him Stanley.
-I'm not calling my horse Stanley!
YOUR horse?! It's OUR horse. In fact, it's really MY horse.
-I'm not riding in the Olympics on a horse named Stanley!
-I'M the better rider!
-Only cos YOU have longer legs!
Just wait till I make my...
