Arthur Character Mr. Ratburn Comes Out as Gay, Has Wedding

Arthur Mr. Ratburn Gay

In the episode, the titular aardvark discovers that his well-read teacher is engaged, firstly shocking Arthur and his fellow students that their educators actually have personal lives.

The word "lesbian" was not used in the episode, nor was the word "gay" used in the episode about Mr. Ratburn.

One fan of drawing and watching cartoons joined in with a '"Woo-hoo" for featuring gay teachers in children's cartoons.

Ratburn's sexuality had never been mentioned until Monday's episode, in which he married another male character.

Arthur is now airing on PBS Kids!

"When they go home, they sharpen pencils, eat kale and dream up homework assignments", Buster says in the ep, "They don't even sleep!"

"Omg I'm crying Mr. Ratburn got married!"

The first surprise is that Patty is his sister, and the second, when he walks down the aisle, is that he's with his groom.

Of course, this isn't the first time the Arthur-verse has featured a gay character.

Over a decade later, however, Mr. Ratburn's big day has been widely celebrated on the Internet, with viewers and fans of the show sending their support via social media.

The educational show targets kids aged four to eight and often tackles hard topics families deal with in their daily lives. Several users referred to him as a gay icon.

A spokesperson for PBS told Entertainment Tonight: "PBS KIDS programs are created to reflect the diversity of communities across the nation".
