It is not a wonderful kind of day! Arthur, the cartoon series on PBS has announced that it will finally end its run after 25 long seasons. Arthur the cartoon, which first debuted in 1996, tells the story of goofy aardvark and his adventures surrounding his family & friends in the mythical town of Elwood City. With more than 240 episodes having aired, Arthur is now the longest-running children’s animated series in American TV history.
“In the winter of 2022, the 25th and final season of Arthur will debut,” EP Carol Greenwald tells IGN via email. “Arthur will continue to be available on PBS KIDS for years to come. Producer GBH and PBS KIDS are continuing to work together on additional Arthur content, sharing the lessons of Arthur and his friends in new ways.”
However, we mustn’t dwell on the inevitable, as we should instead celebrate the legacy of Arthur the cartoon. But how? With some of the best Arthur memes of course!

What else did we miss in the background of Arthur over the years?
Oh man, Arthur is ending after 21 years. I loved this show – especially the library card and the Jekyll Jekyll Hyde episodes. pic.twitter.com/6SM86PzfXH

This might not be a meme, but rather an actual line from the show. We’re laughing uncontrollably either way.
