Queer representation in children's animation has been getting better and better as the years go by, and while it's nice to see so many new, inclusive titles premiering on so many networks, we wish some of our old-school faves would also introduce queer characters as well. Well it looks like Arthur might have just heard our prayers...

The long-running PBS Kids series (which has been airing since 1996) just confirmed that Mr. Nigel Ratburn, Arthur Read's cake-loving, third-grade, Lakewood Elementary School teacher, is queer!

In the new episode "Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone," viewers finally get to see Mr. Ratburn marry his husband! And it's literally the cutest thing ever!!

While current Arthur viewers are probably a little too young for Twitter, when O.G. fans who grew up with Arthur in the '90s & '00s found out about Mr. Ratburn's new husband, they (righfully) freaked out!
The blue checkmarks be throwing in their opinions too! thanks, @Shway

I have to say that I’m not surprised, given the way Ratburn speaks has made me think he was never really straight to begin with.

Props to Arthur for handling it in a good way (which it notably has for mature themes) and not making a huge deal out of it. It makes me think back to the Postcards from Buster episode with the two moms (which never mentioned the obvious, yet still got shitcanned).

I can't think of anything I give less of a fuck about, aside from the fact that this show is still running.
I watched this when I was kid...and they're still making new episodes?!
They're as much of dead show as the Simpsons, which like the Simpsons, got its animation budget cut where it transitioned from traditional digital ink paint animation to an absolutely ugly flash style (though the Simspons transitioned to ToonBoom, I think.).
