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.

    Sankalp SwamySankalp SwamyVor Tag
  • Nope. I don't buy it. If we take all the imagination sequences to be true, there are plenty of buster as an old man sequences that fit the aging rate of other characters. For example, the Binky stole my joke, and the Buster has to keep repeating the third grade sequences. Also, the one explisite example of adoption is in Binky's family, which if that theory works, should be a rabbit. However, his adopted sister is not a rabbit. Plus, when DW goes to the baby store, I don't think there are an overabundance of rabbit babies.
