Fans of the PBS Kids series Arthur were thrilled when the show featured its first openly gay marriage in its 22 seasons.
The show is popular among children, of course, but gained notoriety with a clenched-fist meme that was popularized throughout internet culture — or, various snarky D.W. memes that have gained popularity as well. The show is about a group of animal friends dealing with typical childhood dilemmas.
The progressive nature of the show is not a new phenomena: in 2005, a spinoff of Arthur, Postcards From Buster, featured an open lesbian couple. However, the gay marriage was a coming out for one of the show's most prominent characters.
