The loveable school teacher, Mr. Ratburn, on the PBS animated kids show Arthur has not only come out of the closet – he also got married!
In the episode titled “Mr. Ratburn & the Special Someone,” Arthur and his pals delve into Mr. Ratburn’s homelife under the belief their beloved rat teacher is about to marry a very bossy character voiced by actress Jane Lynch – something they’re not too happy about.

As it turns out, Arthur and his friends discover Jane Lynch’s character is really his sister and Mr. Ratburn is in fact marrying a special someone else.
“It’s a brand new world!” one of the students remarks as the animated series shows Mr. Ratburn and his partner walking down the aisle.
Congratulations Mr. Ratburn! 🌈🐀https://t.co/8ejkwU1sfU
