In the episode set in the future, the characters are seen as adults, with a beard Arthur has become a graphic novelist, with a strangely familiar debut book about the adventures that he and his friends experienced as children.

Meanwhile, his sister DW goes on to become a cop, the bunny Buster works as a teacher, and Francine redirects Phil Knight as she runs a sneakers company.

Another posted: “Dang, I’m going to cry” Goodbye, Arthur “thanks for the childhood memories, Speeding Arty” along with a string of crying emojis.
