Arthur is a joint Canadian/American series which debuted in 1996 about an eight-year-old anthropomorphic aardvark named Arthur Read and his friends, who live in the fictional Elwood City.
The episode in question revolves around the mistaken identity of whom Arthur's schoolteacher will marry and does not explicitly tackle the character's sexuality.
AlabamaPublic Television has chosen not to air a headline-grabbing episode of Arthur, because the recent instalment of the PBSchildren's show includes a same-sex wedding. "We air programs that deal with gay lifestyles all the time on Alabama public television". In 2005, the network skipped another episode which revealed one of the animated characters had two moms, arguing at the time to AL.com "we basically have a trust with parents about our programming".
McKenzie said that in April, PBS alerted APT and other stations about "possible viewer concerns about the content of the program".
'Parents have trusted Alabama Public Television for more than 50 years to provide children's programs that entertain, educate and inspire, ' he wrote.
"I never thought I'd be going to battle for a gay rat wedding, but here we are", she said.
PBS and WGBH notified APT of the episode, titled "Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone", last month, which prompted Mike Mckenzie, director of programming at APT, to decide to cut it. And people of all ages (adult males, mostly) continue to flock (by the singles and tens!) to sites like IMDb in order to downvote these episodes as a totally normal and rational reaction for grown-ups to have. Audiences got to watch a rerun in place of the new episode. That's not the kind of world we want to live in.
Arkansas is at least the second state that refused to air the episode on its public television network. Here's hoping they all find a better mentor along the way.
