"Molina's Mulligan" is the first half of the third episode in the seventeenth season of Arthur.


Alberto discovers that he has a natural talent for golf and begins competing at the local country club. But will his dad's over-enthusiastic and embarrassing cheers cause him to give up the sport altogether?[5]


The show starts at the park, where an earthquake is taking place. Bionic Bunny flies over and starts saying that the hardest part of being a superhero isn't lifting heavy objects, or preventing natural disasters, it is your fans. Bionic Bunny gets launched away after he is distracted by a fan midway through sealing up the earthquake.

Molina's Mulligan

Alberto tells his dad he has to go with Arthur. When Arthur and Alberto are walking by, Chip hits a golf ball which almost hits Arthur and Alberto. Chip and Muffy ask Alberto if he wants to play a game of golf. Alberto agrees, but he has no idea how to play. Arthur volunteers to be the caddie, although he doesn't understand what it is. 

Arthur and Alberto look into what a caddie is. Ramon hears about it, and says he sadly has a dentist appointment, but will reschedule. Alberto objects, but to no use. Arthur, at night, reads a book about how to be a good caddie, and has a fantasy where he helps Alberto, as the book says that a caddie needs to be loyal. 

Ramon offers to drive Alberto and Arthur to practice, but Alberto refuses. Walking there, Arthur asks why Alberto wanted to get away from his dad so quickly. Alberto explains that his dad embarrasses him when he plays sports. At the game, Ramon arrives, holding a box of t-shirts with Alberto's face on it and it says 'the Dean of the Green'. Chip misses a shot and calls a mulligan. Alberto gets a good score, and when Ramon says that he needs to set up the score card in the book to compare with the next one, but Alberto gets offended and says no, there isn't going to be a next time. 

Alberto comes to his dad, who tells him that his score was so good that he got nominated for the championships. Ramon says that he can't come. At the championship that Harry Mills is reporting on, Alberto is losing to Chip, and has a dream that his dad is upset that he didn't come. Arthur calls Ramon, seeing Alberto is sad. Ramon comes, and asks for a mulligan, which means to get a do-over. Alberto agrees, and Harry Mills returns to the game. Alberto wins, and his dad gives him some food. When Alberto makes a shot, Ramon jokes by saying he should play basketball.
