‘Arthur’ episode banned in Alabama

(CNN) — Alabama Public Television won’t air an episode of the children’s cartoon, “Arthur”, that features a same-sex wedding.

In the episode, Arthur’s teacher, Mr. Ratburn, marries a guy named Patrick.

It was scheduled to air last week; the program director for Alabama Public Television says there is no plan to show the episode at a later date.

He says airing it would “take away the choice of parents who feel it is inappropriate.”

PBS says local channels can decide what to put on air in their markets.
