The long-running children’s cartoon series “Arthur” kicked off its 22nd season with a revelation about recurring character Mr. Ratburn.
After announcing he is gay, the title character’s teacher invited students to his wedding to another man.
“It’s a brand new world!” said one of the attendees.
In addition to congratulations from other characters, the fictional wedding even attracted praise in the real world.
“Congratulations Mr. Ratburn!” tweeted LGBT-rights group GLAAD.
