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.

  • Nope. I don't buy it. If we take all the imagination sequences to be true, there are plenty of buster as an old man sequences that fit the aging rate of other characters. For example, the Binky stole my joke, and the Buster has to keep repeating the third grade sequences. Also, the one explisite example of adoption is in Binky's family, which if that theory works, should be a rabbit. However, his adopted sister is not a rabbit. Plus, when DW goes to the baby store, I don't think there are an overabundance of rabbit babies.

  • I know of this show, but I never actually watched it, I was a teenager when it came out. I think there's a 3rd option unless it got addressed in the series that I don't know about as I didn't watch it.. But since this is from the experience of Author and his friends. it could be that there are a lot more mixed species family's in town even we just don't know about them because those kids aren't in Arthur's class and have no reason to hang out with him or any of his friends. Thus we never do find out about them. And really in any mid size town or larger it's just not possible for one kid to know about every other kid in his school, especially know them well enough to know what their family life is like. so really it could just be coincidence that those are the only ones we see.

  • Oh man I hated Arthur. My little sister loved it though. I’m 33 and she’s 29. I think by the time I had even heard of the show I was too old. Some thing about the show though just give me an uneasy feeling. It might’ve been how the characters were kind of human like. Gives me the creeps

  • I have a small problem with your idea that the bunnies are up for adoption or have parents that are divorced. Look at the characters you brought up. Look at the noses, at least for the siblings and the girl. At least the girls have noses similar to the other animal parent. Genetics would say they got that trait from that parent.
