The Network Behind Arthur Is Mad About Your Memes

When WGBH sees a sexually explicit Arthur meme

Arthur memes are all the rage online as of late, and while the good people of Twitter and Tumblr are delighting in repurposing screenshots from the classic children’s show, the network behind the series, WGBH, is not too happy with what’s going on.

In a statement given to the Associated Press, WGBH spokeswoman Ellen London said that while WGBH understands the memes “have been created and shared in good fun,” the network is nevertheless “disappointed by the few that are outside of good taste.”


Chrissy Teigen, on the other hand, is totally here for it.

I have to agree with Chrissy on this one. Like can I live, WGBH? I haven’t seen Arthur get this much hype since I was a member of its target demographic. Let us delight in dirty Arthur memes. So here’s a call to action: Make your Arthur memes as filthy as possible and don’t you ever, ever stop.


Update 8/3/2016, 9:13 PM EDT: I’ve been sent the filthiest Arthur meme and I am so sorry.
