Arthur’ Character Mr. Ratburn Comes Out As Gay In Season Premiere!
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.
Congratulations, Mr. Ratburn! 🎂 🎉
