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 think cartoons used to be made for kids, but with messages for the adults. They're created by adults, after all. Well, even animation movies today have innuendos and whatnot that only the adults will notice. Otherwise the parents wouldn't want to watch whatever their kids are watching. It would be too boring.

  • There might not be a _real-world_ biological explanation, but other fictional universes have already solved this question. In both Bojack Horseman and the Elder Scrolls, different humanoid species can produce offspring, but the offspring will be the same species as one parent instead of a hybrid. For example, in Bojack's world a human and dog could either produce a human baby or a litter of puppies. In the Elder Scrolls, the baby is always the same species/race as the mother but might inherit some subtle traits from the father. An Orc mother will always produce Orc children, regardless of whether the father was Orc, Imperial, Khajiit, etc. If the Arthur universe follows a similar rule, then a rabbit and dog could produce rabbit children.

  • 11:19, Matt, I get that sometimes the data you collect doesnt always work, But why would you still include the life span of the rat and the number of characters depicted in the show. I know this theory kinda sucks, but this is just lazy, including data that doesn't work. Come on man.

  • The part about the lifespan of a rabbit was inaccurate. Pet rabbits can live even up to 14 years (depending on the breed). This would put them in a similar lifespan category as cats and dogs.

  • When I was a kid I always just thought different animals were different races and all the kids with different species as parents were biracial. I never cared (because race doesn’t matter) but it just always made sense to me because if you look at the kids features you could make the very real argument that rabbit features are a more dominant gene. Idk, that’s just what I always thought. But hey, that’s just a theory....A FILM THEORY

  • I apologize if people find this annoying, but I feel this is important. All this things, are the world upside down. I think that we are closer to the end of times (revelations). If a person that reads this is atheist, I please ask you to see the bible and the signs, and make your own respond to the information there. If somebody is a christian, remember that your works cant led you to salvation. Only the Messiah, Yahushua. Please, make Him your saviour. Thank you for reading. (And, if somebody is asking, im putting this comment in videos like this on purpose, because im trying to get to the largest audience as possible). Disculpenme si encuentran esto molesto, pero me parece importante. Todas estas cosas, son el mundo al revés. Creo que estamos más cerca del fin de los tiempos (revelaciones). Si una persona que lee esto es atea, le pido que vea la Biblia y las señales, y que haga su propia respuesta a la información allí. Si alguien es cristiano, recuerde que sus obras no pueden llevarlo a la salvación. Solo el Mesías, Yahushua. Por favor, hazle tu salvador. Gracias por leer. (Y, si alguien pregunta, pongo este comentario en videos como este a propósito, porque estoy tratando de atraer a la mayor cantidad de personas posible).

  • Molly James Emily and Carl are biological siblings who got separated at birth and got adopted by interspecies couples. The only reason that we only see them with interspecies parents is because the show is secretly about them. (I wrote this before finishing the video.)
