  • This is the first season for several things:
    • The first season to debut during the PBS Kids Go! block.
    • The first season to have Chloe Lehmann as JT Turner's assistant
    • The first season to be produced by Canada-based Cookie Jar Entertainment (now WildBrain) after they rebranded from their former name, CINAR.
    • The first season to have Cameron Ansell as the voice of Arthur.
    • The first season to have Eleanor Noble as the voice of George.
      • This is also the first season in which George is voiced by a female voice talent.
    • The first season to have Paul-Stuart Brown as the voice of Brain. However, Brown shared this season with Alex Hood, who had voiced Brain since season 7, because Alex Hood's voice matured this season.
  • This is the last season in which Alex Hood and Samuel Holden voice Brain and Timmy Tibble, respectively.
  • Sue Ellen has no credited speaking roles in this season (she does speak in a group in "Buster the Myth Maker", only uttering one word). However, her new voice actor, Jessica Kardos, did voice Sue Ellen for her appearances in the first season of the Arthur spin-off Postcards from Buster, which premiered around the same time as this season.
  • From this season onwards, the end credits have been shortened from 45 seconds to 30 seconds. This also happens with the 2014-15 redo credits.
  • In 2009, PBS plastered the CINAR logo with the 2008 Cookie Jar logo in all CINAR episodes (it is unknown how Seasons 12-15 retain the 2004 Cookie Jar logo that was used in Seasons 10 and 11; albeit remastered). When they got to Season 9, they decided to keep plastering with the 2008 Cookie Jar logo at first, but halfway through the season, they had second thoughts, considering they only wanted to plaster the CINAR episodes at first, and changed their mind into retaining the rest of the episodes as how they originally aired. At the decision, episodes 1-3 and 5 have been plastered (they forgot episode 4 for unknown reason), while the rest of the season continued to feature the 2004 Cookie Jar prototype logo until the season was repackaged again as part of the 2014-15 remake, complete with the 2008 Cookie Jar logo following the 2012-style end credits.
