Question:
Hey Muffy and Arthur! How are you? You guys rock! I have two questions... how is it like working with the Backstreet Boys???
Muffy:
It was my dream come true working with the Backstreet Boys, but of course it was their dream come true working with me.
Question:
Some people think that Arthur is a show for kids... what do you think about that? Is it a show for kids?

Muffy:
Yes. The real BSB filmed the show for us.
