Holiday greetings from Arthur and D.W. (from the liner notes)
Arthur: Hi everyone! Welcome to my second CD! It has holiday songs from around the world on it, and some songs from my Christmas special, Arthur's Perfect Christmas, which I wanted to call "Perfect Arthur's Christmas."
D.W.: But I wouldn't let you.
Arthur: D.W., I'm talking to my fans. Why don't you go play with Mary Moo Cow?
D.W.: Okay, okay.
Arthur: The CD also has some of our favorite Christmas carols on it...
D.W.: Who's Carol?
Arthur: D.W., be quiet.
D.W.: I won't say another word.
Arthur: Anyway, I hope you have as much fun listening to it as my friends and I had making it! Have a great holiday everyone!
D.W.: And a happy "moo" year!
D.W.: That was Mary Moo Cow, not me!
