’90s Canadian-American kids’ animation Arthur hit the internet in a big way yesterday (July 28) after a meme-ified photo of Arthur’s fist inspired a trend. The first one wasn’t even that great, but that didn’t matter – soon it wasn’t just the fist that spread across Twitter, but most of the series’ anthropomorphised animal characters, accompanied by adult and sometimes pretty NSFW captions. Just a warning: be ready to have your childhood ruined with this round-up of the best.
