"Buster the Lounge Lizard" is the second half of the fourth episode in the fifteenth season of Arthur.


Buster's new toy accidentally ends up in the teacher's lounge.


The episode starts with a TV commercial for a new Dark Bunny toy called the Dark Buggy. After seeing the commercial, Buster immediately wants one, and walks out of his living room, saying, "Must. Have. Now!".

After Buster gets the Dark Buggy, he then brings it to school, proceeding to show Arthur the toy, but it accidentally hurts Binky, who is across the hallway, with a grip hook that latches itself onto Binky's shirt. Binky then confronts Buster to be careful, as his bouncy super ball was taken away by Mr. Ratburn the prior Monday, as he brought a toy to school.

Buster brings the Dark Buggy into the classroom, and tries to put it into his desk. It doesn't work, and the grip hook latches itself onto Mr. Ratburn's belt, proceeding for his pants to fall down and show the class his underwear. Seeing Buster's toy, Mr. Ratburn confiscates it until after class, after which he gives it back to Buster, as the toy is highly sensitive (to all five senses). Mr. Ratburn then says to Buster that if he catches him playing with his toy in class again, he will keep it for the entire school year.

Buster proceeds to put his Dark Buggy in his locker, but the toy escapes. Buster then tries to get into the teacher's lounge, as his highly sensitive new toy went in by accident, but fails.

He meets with Francine, Muffy, and Arthur at The Sugar Bowl, where they discuss what maybe happens at the Teacher's Lounge. Arthur believes that the teachers play with all the confiscated toys in there, Muffy believes that it's like a fancy spa, and Francine believes that inside, the teachers work on ways to make school harder (she also says they are aliens because she knew Buster would).

After Arthur, Francine, and Muffy leave, Binky confronts Buster about meeting at the playground. He goes with Binky as they devise a plan to sneak into the teacher's lounge. Buster plans to sneak in through the window, but then declines over moral value about the lounge being a place of privacy the next morning.

When this happens, Mr. Ratburn appears through the window, and gives Buster his Dark Buggy back. After doing so, Mr. Ratburn and Mr. Haney start playing with Binky's toy, as Binky only wanted to help Buster so that he could also retrieve his toy. The episode then finishes.
