"The Best Partner" is the fourth episode of Anne of Green Gables: The Animated Series.


When Mr. Gresham's nephew Ben visits Avonlea, all the kids are excited about his arrival, especially as it coincides with a sports day. To their surprise, Ben arrives on crutches as polio has left him paralyzed. With empathy and creativity shown on both sides, the children learn to fully welcome Ben into the group, and the games, as a valuable partner.

Production notes

  • Ali Mukaddam's character, Lloyd, is incorrectly listed as Ralph in the ending credits, even though his real name can be clearly heard in the episode.
  • Another character's name is misspelled – Dyrad instead of Dryad.


  • Diana's father owns a cannon ball from the Battle of Louisbourg, which took place in 1758. It was a pivotal operation of the Seven Years' War that ended the French colonial era in Atlantic Canada.
  • Benjamin attended the 1900 Summer Olympics which were held in Paris, France. This fact places the universe timeline to the early 1900s.


This episode was released as part of the DVD box set Volumes 4-6, along with "Carrots!", "A Bully by the Horns", "Chores Eclipsed", "The Stray" and "A Question of Rules".
