'Arthur' character Mr. Ratburn comes out as gay in touching wedding scene

In the premiere episode of season 22 of beloved (and very meme-worthy) children's show, Arthur, viewers learned something new about longtime character, Mr. Ratburn.

People took to Twitter when they learned about the episode - but many were sharing their disbelief that "Arthur" was still on the air. The episode ends with little fanfare from the kids as Mr. Ratburn's gay wedding barely phases them, as they're more excited about the cake they get to eat. See some of the positive responses (and congratulatory messages for Mr. Ratburn) below.

Supportive: The characters thought their teacher was getting married to a woman named Patty.

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

But it was revealed that Patty was actually Mr. Ratburn's sister, not his fiance. Not only that Arthur is still going, but that Mr. Ratburn is openly gay. "I still can't believe it". There is no explicit reference made to Patrick's gender, furthering the message of acceptance.
