Outside of the evidence outlined above, the Arthur Wiki reveals that [[spoiler: an episode in Season 18 will have Brain seeing a therapist after a big storm hits Elwood City.]] Brain is apparently going to be the first character to do this, but if the show lasts much longer--and it being a LongRunner, that's a possibility--we could see Fern undergoing counseling as well.

[[WMG: Binky is actually a gifted kid.]]

He was HeldBackInSchool, but there is evidence to suggest he's much smarter than he lets on. He's particularly gifted in art and music--not many other third-graders fully grasp Bizet's ''Carmen'' or catch an art museum curator's mistake (see "Binky Barnes, Art Expert.") Like many kids, especially boys, he may have chosen to hide giftedness behind his bullying exterior and dumb himself down, thus explaining his often poor grades. Since he has been showing his gentler side more in later seasons, one could infer he has found an accepting group of friends in Arthur et. al.

[[WMG: Mr. Cramp, also known as MC, did not [[spoiler: choose to teach third grade instead of fourth.]] Instead, he was counseled into it or outright forced.]]

Mr. Ratburn tells the kids [[spoiler: M.C. chose to teach third grade]], but this is often what faculty tells students when they don't want to get into administrative politics or can't reveal adult decisions. Under this theory, Mr. Haney [[spoiler: either counseled M.C. to teach third]] or basically said, "You must do this to work here." Why? Because fourth grade is traditionally when the elementary school curriculum becomes much more difficult. The administration may have observed M.C.'s HippieTeacher tactics and decided he was a bad fit for that particular curriculum, as well as for a large group of students who'd been under Ratburn's tutelage.

[[WMG: Mighty Mountain is a specialized school.]]
* We know that Mighty Mountain has a strong athletics program, but Marina attends the school as well, and is able to access the resources that she needs there. Carl and Lydia apparently don't attend Lakewood Elementary, but there's nothing to rule out their attending Mighty Mountain. Perhaps Mighty Mountain is renowned for both athletic success and a strong special education program.

* An adult in the kids life could be out as gay or bi, and bring in another character of the same gender to show. Seven/eight is a little young for kids to really know about the complexity of sexuality, but having a parent come out will allow the writers to show that it is all right and there is nothing to worry about if a person in their life is gay.

* Talking about sexuality doesn't mean talking about sex. As a previous troper said, a lot of children their age don't talk or even care about sex, although it may vary based on where you live. The could do an episode about a character with a crush on someone of the same gender (kids can have and understand crushes at younger ages than that), or about an adult who was gay, or about a transgender character.

[[WMG: Fern is of French ancestry.]]

A series of her detective stories star a young girl named Essie Beauchamp, and Fern appears prominently in the ''Postcards from Buster'' episode featuring New Orleans. In recent seasons, Fern also plays an elaborate detective game with George where she takes on the persona of Virgile Veauteau, a fictional detective with a heavy French accent (possibly a [[LawyerFriendlyCameo lawyer-friendly]] version of Agatha Christie's Poirot). Considering her particular love of classic British authors such as Doyle and Shelley, she may also have some English ancestry.

[[WMG: Fern Knew It Was George Who Destroyed The Ferris Wheel]]

But after seeing that George and Binky had worked everything out, she feigned ignorance and accused Mr. Haney on the spot, so things wouldn't get messy.

* The person that made up the song in the shower probably experienced the fate of riding a crazy bus to the mental hospital as a kid (perhaps as a kid he was locked up in the [[AmericanHorrorStoryAsylum Asylum]] from AmericanHorrorStory. After years of trauma and even more years of therapy he made a song about it the only way he could and thus the song about a "Crazy Bus" was born. He probably didn't expect the money it would bring him or the musical based off the song.
