"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.


Buster gets a new toy that he saw in a T.V. commercial, that began in the beginning of the episode. Buster then brings the toy to school, proceeding to show Arthur the toy, and accidentally hurting Binky who was 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 on Monday, as he brought a toy to school. But in the end, Buster brings it 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. Mr. Ratburn confiscates the toy after class, but then gives it back, as the toy is highly sensitive (to all five senses) but if Mr. Ratburn catches him playing with his toy in class again he will keep it for the whole school year. Buster proceeds to put it in his locker but the toy escapes. Buster then tries to get into the teacher's lounge as his highly sensitive new dark bunny automobile went in on accident. He meets with Francine, Muffy, Arthur at the Sugar Bowl where they discuss what maybe happens at the Teacher's Lounge - Arthur believes the teachers play with all the confiscated toys in there, Muffy believes that it's like a fancy salon, 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). The trio leaves, when 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. When this happens, Mr. Ratburn appears through the window and gives back the automobile toy. It then finishes with Mr. Ratburn and the principal playing with Binky's toy, as Binky only wanted to help so Buster could also retrieve his toy.
