Den største overraskelsen her er kanskje at animasjonsserien Arthur fortstatt lager nye episoder.
Serien, som også har vært populær i Norge, er nå inne i sin 22. sesong.
I sesongens første avsnitt er Arthur og gjengen gjester i et bryllup.
Brudgommene er Arthurs lærer Mr. Nigel Ratburn, og en kjekkas som heter Patrick.
Elevene er overrasket, men bare fordi kvinnen de trodde var bruden viser seg å være Mr Ratburns sassy søster Patty.
Ellers er de mest opptatt av kake – og at voksne ikke skal tro at de kan danse.
Se kjut snutt fra den ferske episoden:
Den kanadisk-amerikanske serien har holdt koken siden 1996. Historien er basert på barnebøker skrevet og illustrert av forfatter Marc Brown.
Tidligere episoder tatt opp temaer som dysleksi, diabetes, kreft og autisme.
Arthur er USAs lengstlevende animerte serie etter The Simpsons. Showet har fått grønt lys til (minst) tre nye sesonger etter den som sendes nå.
Twitter-brukere reagerer med ekstase (og humor, selvsagt) etter episoden.

Ok but are we forgetting about the importance of showing that an elementary teacher can be gay & its completely normal & it doesn't make you a predator & they can have normal lives & relationships because thats very important in our time rn #MrRatburn #Arthur pic.twitter.com/ar4QaqebWW

i think the best thing about this is that. mr. ratburn is like, an actual character on the show. this isn't just a one-off gay couple introduced so they could have this episode, which'd still be neat, albeit less-so. this is an actual, established character.

It turns out Arthur is more courageous and explicit than Avengers: Endgame when it comes to LGBTQ2 lives and storylines. Congrats Mr. Ratburn! Your move, Marvel…. https://t.co/eq99SerHaC

This episode was wild too, Arthur and his friends thought he was marrying this pushy woman and tried to break them up only to find out the lady was his sister and Mr. Ratburn was marrying the guy from the chocolate shop they went to earlier in the episode https://t.co/mOXjvjBw34

PSA: Mr. Ratburn from "Arthur" is gay. Do you know how amazing it is that someone who's been on the show from the start, someone who's a main character, is openly gay and getting married on a kids show? PBS Kids really is that bitch.
Plus, all his students are at his wedding! :') pic.twitter.com/aaxGwTE9is
