(Gray News) – It was a memorable season premiere for the PBS Kids TV series “Arthur.”

The animated children’s show not only kicked off its 22nd season this week, but Arthur’s teacher came out as gay in the episode “Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone.”

In the episode, Mr. Ratburn marries another male character.

Ahead of the nuptials, the kids are a bit surprised to learn that their teacher is getting married and speculate on who it might be.

“Who is Mr. Ratburn marrying?” Muffy asks.

As the couple walks down the aisle, the secret is revealed, and his students are all smiles.
