Arthur = an epic poem?

Okay so this isn't exactly the Aenied, but the whole time I was taking the test, I was thinking about this episode of Arthur. I didn't know it when I was seven, but now I can tell they copied the Odyssey a little. I think it's kind of funny.

Hehe I remember this episode! When DW's friends eat the plants it is just like that scene in the odyssey where Odyessus encounters the lotus eaters. I think that the odyssey and other classical pieces of literature are replicated quite a bit in our day. In english freshman year im pretty sure "o brother where art thou" was based off of the odyssey, if i remember correctly.
