On Monday, PBS's Arthur debuted its 22nd season with the episode "Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone." The episode featured the character Mr. Ratburn getting married to Patrick.
Many on social media were A.) surprised that the educational cartoon for kids was still on the air and B.) happy for Arthur's teacher, Mr. Ratburn.
The plot of the episode was simple enough, Arthur and his classmates thought Mr. Ratburn was marrying a woman named Patty, but when they decided to intervene (on account of not liking Patty and, somewhat coincidentally, not minding their own business) they found out that Patty was actually Mr. Ratburn’s sister and that their teacher was marrying chocolatier Patrick.
You don't stay on the air from '96 until now unless you can throw a curve or two.
