‘Arthur’ character Mr. Ratburn revealed as gay, gets married in new episode

You're Invited to Mr. Ratburn's Big Gay Wedding on 'Arthur' Character Mr. Ratburn Comes Out as Gay and Gets Married, Social Media Reacts

The longstanding series, which is now enjoying its twenty-second season on PBS, has been making waves across social media over a recent episode.

Buster is then heard saying, 'It's a brand new world, ' hinting at how society has changed to be more accepting of people's sexual orientation and ability to get married.

According to the fan page ArthurWiki, "Mr. Ratburn is primarily known for being a strict teacher, but he has many other hobbies outside of the classroom, including puppetry, playing in a rock band, and bird-watching".

Another person wrote: 'PSA: Mr. Ratburn from "Arthur" is gay.

The students overhear their teacher talking about flower arrangements during class, and are surprised to learn the flowers are for him - he's getting married. PBS Kids really is that b****.

GLAAD even congratulated the teacher. Cut to the dance floor, where Buster approaches his friends with a plate of "the best cake I've ever had", a nod to Mr. Ratburn's famous love of the dessert.

As fans who grew up with the beloved children's series might recall, Mr. Ratburn is Arthur's teacher who, as it turns out, is actually gay. Not only that, but the show promoted same-sex marriage in what has been considered an "incredibly heartwarming" episode.

Believe it or not, the animated kid's series Arthur is still going strong on the air.

"#Arthur is a kids show that tackles a lot of serious issues, which is a good thing".

"Arthur" is breaking boundaries in its 22nd season.
