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.

  • I have an Arthur theory, it is that the characters in their point of view live in a world where they see themselves and everyone as cartoon anthropomorphic animals. The animals they are there spirit animal. This shows that how the other animal species exist when they're the same animals. This explains why the characters never seem to be mindful of what they are. In an episode where Arthur's family and Buster go to New York buster's mother gives him a camera. When buster starts to record the world in the camera is seen in Live Action, the recording is breaking through his imagination. In The spin Off show, postcards from buster, once again the show in seen in Real Life. This could mean that the characters imagination only works in ellwood city. The rest of the world beyond the characters mindsets are real life. This also shows how the parents are never given their own episodes, because the parents already matured. There is even an Arthur Point Of View Episode.

  • I have an even darker theory, Its that there ARE humans in the Arthur world, just not there, and inter-animal breeding does exist, its just being tested by the humans with rabbits, since they are the most disposable, and a lot of those rabbits are not kept after the tests are over, so they are normally given away, and this would explain the abundance of rabbits, because they are forcefully being bred and tested on by humans. I've made my point.

  • Something to think about: Molly is a rabbit but has her mother’s dog nose. James is a rabbit but is the same color as their mother. Emily is a rabbit, like her mother, but has a monkey nose like her father. Carl, well Carl is adopted because he has a cat nose. Although it is possible that Carl’s biological mother is the aardvark and his nose is an example of some hybrid animal recessive gene.

  • As far as litter size and lifespan pretty much every rodent species should outnumber all the others, not just rabbits. That said pretty much every expert I've seen on the subject said that any 2 intelligent species on the same planet would go the same way as Humans and Neanderthals, with one being wiped out in the hunter-gatherer period with only genetic traces from the occasional interbreeding assuming they were similar enough to do so.

  • Yeah running for 23 years but it's only had 195 episodes, the majority of which involve his school, meaning that the school year would still be going or almost over in their universe. That doesn't explain Buster's year long world tour thing though (might have that wrong haven't seen it in 10 years. The Arthur hecklers may correct me if they so choose.)

Then I suggest Beastars, bc that’s its whole hook: how will a society of animals, with all their instincts, map out?

  • 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.
