“Arthur” to Highlight Same Sex Marriage

The new season of the PBS cartoon "Arthur" started with the wedding of Mr. Ratburn to another man. In the episode, Mr. Ratburn got married to a chocolatier named Patrick, but the word "gay" was never used in the episode.  

The response to the episode about Mr. Ratburn's wedding was met with lots of praise from viewers. This isn't the first time the cartoon has tackled the issue of a gay character. The show also did it in 2005 with a lesbian couple in an episode called "Postcards from Buster." 

Do you have an issue with cartoons having gay characters? Did you get a chance to catch the episode?
