Trivia

  • "Sugartime!" was pulled from PBS airings after it was criticized by then-Secretary of State Margaret Spellings for depicting two sets of lesbian parents. Vermont was one of the few states at the time to recognize same-sex civil unions. However, some PBS stations chose to independently air the episode, including Arthur's co-producer WGBH in Boston.
  • The terms "lesbian" and "homosexual" are never used in this episode: instead, Buster remarks "that's a lot of moms!" and one of the children refers to loving her "step-mother."
    • This approach (acknowledging the existence of same-sex couples while not making it the focus of the story) was reused nearly-15 years later for the episode "Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone."
  • Despite the controversy, this episode was included in the DVD (and the VHS) of Buster's Outdoor Journeys.
