Needless to say, they're definitely happy about the turn of events - especially given that it means Mr. Ratburn isn't actually marrying the uptight woman they saw him hanging out with toward the beginning of the episode.

The long-running children's program "Arthur" is showcasing marriage equality.

Those familiar with Arthur and its vast and varied cast likely recognizes the professorial Mr. Ratburn, who ultimately became a fan-favorite, and surprisingly layered character. It's not the first time the children's show has included LGBTQ storylines although the last one occurred in 2005, TV Line reports.

Another person said: "Mr. Ratburn being gay is *my* Game of Thrones finale". PBS Kids really is that b****. Cut to the dance floor, where Buster approaches his friends with a plate of "the best cake I've ever had", a nod to Mr. Ratburn's famous love of the dessert.

On Tuesday, the station's official Twitter account tweeted out congratulations to the fictional teacher and his new husband on their nuptials.
