There's one problem - whenever Buster is at the game, the Grebes lose! Is Buster the team's curse?! Or can the players convince Buster that his loyalty as a fan is more valuable to them than winning?
* Arthur Changes Gears: Arthur finally saves enough money to buy the bike of his dreams! But - this new bike is way too nice to actually ride. What if it gets wet? Or dirty?! It takes the whole gang - plus a special visit by the Ghost of Bikes Never Ridden - to convince Arthur that his treasured possession is better off being enjoyed than kept on display.
