The beloved children's animated show Arthur is ending after 25 years and countless iconic memes.

Carol Greenwald, one of the show's executive producers, said in a statement that the longest-running kids animated series in history will be remembered for "teaching kindness, empathy, and inclusion through many groundbreaking moments to generations of viewers."

Even though the final season will air in winter 2022, Greenwald said, reruns will continue on PBS Kids.

The series, which has chronicled the life of Arthur Read since 1996, has earned a reputation for featuring characters from different backgrounds to create a diverse animated world.
