Nathan Jernas' award

Nathan's award showing the year 2003.


  • Buster said that he was told Mrs. Jernas had a kid his age, but both kids are older than 8.
  • Nathan states that the old car in the barn is a 1949 Plymouth, but it is in fact a 1941.[1]
  • All of the family look up at the cameraman, instead of down at where Buster would be.

Production notes

  • Although this episode aired in 2004, it was actually filmed at least a year before in 2003 (the same year the original Arthur episode aired) due to the year that's shown on the award Nathan gets.
  • After the Jernas family had been scouted, Deep Fried Pickle Project were chosen to appear in the episode after Natatcha Estebanez, WGBH series producer, saw them perform at the Box Factory in Indiana.[2]
