"Prunella Sees the Light"
Six months, two weeks, and four days after it disappeared, D.W.'s snowball reappears in the Read family freezer. But how can she prevent it from melting or being stolen again?
- In this episode, D.W. finally acknowledges that Arthur couldn't have taken her original snowball; however, this doesn't end the gag as it resurfaces in later seasons.
- For unknown reasons, the aliens who claim to have stolen the snowball are not the same ones who actually did back in D.W.'s Snow Mystery.
- The cold open features the phrase "Recently in a galaxy far far away..." followed by an opening crawl setting the scene for the episode. This is a parody of the "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..." tagline and opening crawl of the Star Wars films. The title of the episode itself is a reference to Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
