|As the scene begins to zoom in, we hear the moo of a cow and the chirping of birds. As we continue to zoom in, we see Buster, who's wearing a black, red-banded cowboy hat and a strumming a banjo. He starts singing a country song, apparently of his own devising:
(Listen to Buster singing his song. <div class="floatright"></div> 344 KB, MP3)
If you liked this, Buster does a country song about UFOs on the first Arthur CD.
I sincerely hope Buster sings no more this season.
Buster's country singing voice was bad in my opinion.
|There are things that make me blue,
Like an old forgotten shoe, or a candy bar that I have never tried...
|History tests are crumby,
Soggy toast ain't yummy, And the weatherman on the radio He just lies...
|SCREENSHOT: Buster with flunked test, and
soggy toast, sitting in the rain.
|Or you're playin' with your poodle,
And he bites ya' on the noodle. You hit your head on the bed! (That's gotta smart!)
|Shot of Muffy, inside her house. Turns out that Muffy's waving a toy mouse at the poodle. He's not impressed, and bites her on the nose.
What do you think it is Muffy, a cat? Come on...
I wonder if Fern would have a poodle as a pet?
Please don’t tell me that Muffy has a new pet now, and it’s that prissy little poodle thing! Doy, I’d just flop or something!
Muffy is a monkey, so wouldn't she have a monkey-dog relationship (refering to Japanese folktales where the monkey and the dog always try to prove who is better)? And I guess this means the dog wins!
|SCREENSHOT: "Playin' with your poodle"|
|But nothin' feels so bad
Can make ya' so darn sad As when a babysitter Sits upon your heart, upon your heart, Oh, yeah, upon your heart...
Switch to Arthur's bedroom now, with a glum Arthur sitting on his bed. Buster's walking around in Arthur's room, still singing.
At this point, Arthur races towards the screen with a worried expression on his face.
Arthur: Stop! Cut! No more! (to Buster): You were going to tell them?!Buster says that indeed he was. It makes a good song.
|Arthur starts waving his hands back and forth in a cease-and-desist type movement. Then he tells us that due to technical difficulties, there will be no show today, and like in #41002- "That's a Baby Show!", he tries to cover the camera with his hand. This time though, Buster pushes him away. Buster talks to someone offscreen.|
Buster: Don't listen to him! He's just embarrassed. Roll the tape Greg! It's a good story, Arthur.By calling for Greg, Buster is directly addressing the show's director, Greg Bailey.
