Arthur's Teacher Mr. Ratburn Is Gay & Finally Got Married

Arthur's Teacher Mr. Ratburn Is Gay & Finally Got Married

You can see what they had to say below.

The revelation resulted in a mass outpouring of happiness and celebrations over the internet, with some even suggesting they "knew all along". In the animated series' season 22 premiere episode, which was titled "Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone", Arthur's teacher, Mr. Ratburn is confirmed to be gay and engaged to another male character.

Glee star and LGBTQIA+ advocate Jane Lynch guest stars in the episode as Mr. Ratburn's sister. "They just go into low-power mode and watch documentaries".

Mr Ratburn & The Special Someone, Arthur and his animal friends are shocked to discover Mr Ratburn is engaged to be Wednesday, according to TV Line. He appears to be an aardvark, just like the show's main character. From the feedback on social media, many are rejoicing over the plot.


"Big props for celebrating love and fearlessly exampling to a young audience all types of relationships", added @robertmanion.

While one Twitter user asked why no-one was talking about the fact Patty was also "clearly" gay.

Mr. Ratburn enjoyed his first dance with his husband. When Arthur and his friends find out their teacher is getting married, they assume that he is getting married to a female rat named Patty. I have to applaud the writers for doing this. PBS released a statement regarding the episode, stating, "PBS KIDS programs are created to reflect the diversity of communities across the nation".
