"All Will Be Revealed!" is the second half of the first episode in the twenty-fifth season of Arthur.


D.W. and Bud are making the Bud Compson (a peanut butter and strawberry sandwich) for a shared snack. However, when Arthur and Buster enter, Arthur ends up drinking most of the milk before D.W. and Bud can get to it. D.W. accuses him of taking everything like the time she took his Bell X-1 Model Plane and busted it and they get into an argument once again over the time that her snowball went missing. Buster proves unhelpful, repeating his belief that an alien stole it. Bud, who was present for none of this, is left confused as he asks about the missing snowball.

Later, Bud tells Rapty about the snowball incident and they decide to work together to figure out what really happened to it. Rapty notes Nadine would know more about the snowball, so they head to Fanta-City, where imaginary friends live. They meet Nadine while she is playing croquet with some other imaginary friends and ask her what happened. She claims that the aliens took it but admits to not having seen them, suggesting they talk to Buster instead.

Soon they end up at Buster's apartment, where he is reasonably startled by Rapty but agrees to offer information on aliens, showing a photograph of the ones he believes took the snowball: using some decoy snowballs, they manage to summon an alien troll resembling Binky. The alien, who claims to have observed them all for over twenty years (even though most of the characters are nowhere near that age), reveals the alien photo Buster has is fake and that it was the one who took the snowball. In exchange for the snowball's return, it asks for most of Buster's food cabinet, to which he reluctantly agrees. They head to the alien's home planet, Tabooni, to retrieve the snowball, but learn that the alien actually stole a croquet ball instead. Noticing a long golden hair on the plate, Bud deduces who really took the snowball and so they head back to Fanta-City, dropping off Buster (who gets to keep his food collection) along the way.

Back at Fanta-City, Bud and Rapty accuse Nadine for stealing the snowball. She tries to deny it but all the evidence points to her: she was playing croquet earlier and it was her hair on the plate. She admits that she swapped the snowball for the croquet ball after seeing the alien troll try to take it: they actually managed to take it at first, but she was able to reverse time and replace it. However, she didn't put it back because she thought Arthur would steal it himself, reiterating D.W.'s claim that he steals everything. Bud and Rapty point out that keeping this up is only making Arthur and D.W. fight. Nadine agrees to return the snowball and explain everything to D.W.

Bud wakes up at home and assumes he was just dreaming. That is, until he and Buster run into each other and realize that they had the same dream, and they hear D.W. announce that her snowball has returned...







  • This marks the first appearance of W.D.'s imaginary friend, Maxine, since her debut in the Season 15 episode "Best Enemies."
  • This is the final appearance of imaginary friends.
  • This episode reveals that Buster can see Rapty in his non-toy form just like Bud can.
  • The alien troll claims to have been watching Buster and his friends for over 20 years. Given the actual ages of the characters and the amount of time that occurs in the show's floating timeline, this can be taken as a meta-acknowledgment of how long the series has been running rather than a literal descriptor.

Episode connections


  • The official plot synopsis claims that D.W. was going to help Bud and Rapty solve the mystery of the snowball. It was actually Buster who did so.

Production notes

  • This is the first episode to be written by Greg Bailey, who has served as the director of Arthur for the entire series.
