I can’t overstate the importance of this movie, and specifically this exchange.

Holy fuck Arthur was on some next level shit
Oh my godHello, yes, let’s actually break down this episode shall we?
This episode features not one, but TWO autism spectrum characters (one never appears onscreen, but does play a significant role in the plot of the episode). Both are portrayed as highly intelligent, talented, and worthy of dignity. Both characters are DIAGNOSED Aspies. This is important, because while Carl coincides with the generation of children post-1993 who were diagnosed early in life, the uncle discussed later is an adult, and as such was probably not diagnosed until adulthood. And his diagnosis is accepted as valid, and his opinion is acknowledged.
Furthermore, Carl’s portrayal (while simplified) actually makes an attempt at realism. His autistic behaviors aren’t merely focused on social interaction. He actually has an on-screen meltdown, complete with stimming. And it is acknowledged as A Thing that Happens, without trying to justify why it someone else thinks it SHOULDN’T.
Also, look at the way that George reacts to Carl. He actively pursues a friendship with him, enjoys his company, and isn’t offended when Carl doesn’t reciprocate his social cues. More importantly, George MODIFIES his behavior to make Carl more comfortable. He doesn’t try to come up with reasons why Carl should modify HIS relationship with the world around him. He is eager to teach Carl AND to learn from him.
Finally, this episode centers around a puzzle piece. And while my first reaction was to cringe away with disgust, especially when the piece goes missing (that terminology sounds familiar, doesn’t it?), but here’s the interesting part: by the end of the episode the piece gets located. And as it turns out, it was never actually missing to begin with.
And all of this happened on a kid’s television show about anthropomorphic animals. Now explain to me again how mainstream media can’t handle an autistic character.
I’ve seen the clip that the gifset is based on, but wow, I think I need to watch this whole episode at some point.
I never saw this episode! I wish I had, I’d have probably been diagnosed sooner.
Arthur seems like a really nice show. I was scared of Muffy or whatever her name is though so I wouldn’t watch it as a kid.
I love Arthur. And I didn’t see this until my kids were toddlers (which was about 4 years ago). And I don’t mention it a lot, but this is part of what made me go, “Oh, that makes a lot of sense. Maybe I should look into that a bit more.”
in which Totoro boops Mana Ashida on the head.
Japanese child actress Mana was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.
