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.

    .....This just makes me think you should read Beastars. Especially that suppressing instincts comment at 11:33. You want to overthink the animal societies we often see in kids shows/movies? Then I suggest Beastars, bc that’s its whole hook: how will a society of animals, with all their instincts, map out?

    Okay but to take the theory in a lighter direction the idea that rabbits in the Arthur universe use their hyper-fertility to fill the needs of interspecies couples on a worldwide scale is a much nicer thought

    I have a good idea about a film theory episode on the Simpsons. Bart is actually an evil genius. Also, I already have two pieces of evidence, the first one is on episode 12 season 1. Bart figures out easily in a few seconds that Sideshow Bob framed Krusty, and he did it as fast as Sherlock Holmes. My second piece of evidence is that on episode 11 he learns french without a teacher and he wasn't even spoken to in french that much all in only 3 months so he was basically like Matilda.

    Omg I hated Arthur growing up. I thought the character designs were creepy and everyone was super annoying. I feel super out of the loop because everyone seems to really like it. Obviously the show is successful if it’s been running for so long. Congrats to the writers! But my kids will definitely not be watching Arthur

    This made me think of the anime BNA. Where basically, there are couples where both the partners aren’t the same species, but they can still have children, but the child will only be the same species as one parent. For example, let’s say a tiger and a rabbit get married and decide to have kids, the kid will either be a tiger, or a rabbit, not a hybrid of the two. Idk this just made me think of that.

    A less darker explenation would be that species in the arthur universe is more like race with humans, like humans have many races and in arthur universe animals have different races, and different species couples are like interracial human couples
