Remember Arthur? The aardvark that helped you know how to SPELL aardvark? This PBS show is still running and I think it's about time I ruin it for EVERYONE! It's my job! I started watching through some episodes and started to notice something: there are a LOT of bunnies on this show. Now, there are plenty of jokes to make about rabbits but what I have to show you is MUCH darker than that. I am about to pull back the veil to show the tragic secret of the Arthur universe.

    • I haven't watched or heard anything about this show in years and you blew my mind at Mr. Ratburn being Homosexual. Though thinking back I guess the clues where there.

  • Here’s the thing I’m noticing, the children who have two different species as parents don’t have the general facial features as the single species children. Like look at the face shapes and the noses specifically. The siblings with two different parents have two different noses. Soooooooo.....

  • Was no one else ever weirded out about how there were people dogs and real dogs in this show. And while we are on that note, were there any cat people? I don't remember there being any... Nor any pigs, mice, Guinea pigs or rats lol man this world is weird. But this show was so great. I had no idea it was still even running. I need to find where this is being broadcasted in America *cough* where I'm totally watching my content from. I loved Arthur... And Hey Arnold. They were my childhood. And little bear. I think that was a Canadian show. We seemed to have gotten a lot of UK and Canadian cartoons in Australia in the 90s. No idea why

  • But also when you say that rabbits live 2-3 years but isn’t all the rabbits parents different that’s were the dna comes in what did you say monkeys live for super long. That’s dna so that gene can carry to the kid.

  • A word on the characters and lessons: it’s wonderful to teach kids about different types of people and stuff but when I got my Asperger’s diagnosis Carl’s immediately who I thought of. I’m not saying everyone knows almost nothing about the condition but everything I personally knew was from that one episode…and he’s kinda based on stereotypes. Not the least of which that all people with Asperger’s are obsessed with trains. Yea most of us do have different things which we can just quietly obsess over when the real world gets too much for us but we don’t all love trains. Also he Hates the color brown which could point to synesthesia which is sometimes a comorbid condition with Asperger’s Thanks for listening to the ranting of an Asperger’s human :)
