Mr. Ratburn of 'Arthur' Is Gay and Social Media Is Obsessed

Mr. Ratburn Comes Out As Gay In New ‘Arthur’ Ep & What A Wonderful Kind Of Day

However, they eventually discover that Patty (voiced by Jane Lynch) is his sister and that his actual partner is a chocolatier named Patrick. When they see him having lunch with an uptight woman who tells him to "toughen up", the kids believe their teacher is making a mistake in getting married and try to sabotage the ceremony. "They just go into low-power mode and watch documentaries". To really jump-start the new season, the series launched the first episode with Mr. Ratburn's wedding, revealing in the process that Mr. Ratburn is actually gay! He appears to be an aardvark, just like the show's main character. Several people reacted to the news on social media, with "Arthur" trending on Twitter. "One Twitter user wrote, "...big props for celebrating love and fearlessly exampling to a young audience all types of relationships".

The best part of the entire episode is that the kids don't even question Mr. Ratburn's sexuality and instead talk about how happy he looks. She tells Mr Ratburn to he's "too soft" and needs to 'toughen up'. I have to applaud the writers for doing this.

"Arthur" is probably the show that taught me the most life lessons during my childhood, and the fond memories many "90s kids recall have created an incredible sense of attachment".

Bucks advance to ECF, manhandle Celtics
