Matthew Cuthbert is the brother of Marilla Cuthbert and one of the owners of Green Gables.
Matthew at first seems very timid and quiet. It isn't quite clear as to how he feels about Anne, until Marilla refuses to keep her. Matthew reveals he is quite fond of her and that she is a good kid.
At one point, Matthew goes against Marilla's wishes and buys Anne a dress with puff sleeves, which she is thrilled to receive.
Towards the end of the first season, Matthew suffers a heart attack. Upon waking up, Matthew goes into a cabinet to get a gun in order to attempt suicide. However, he is caught by Jeannie and collapses yet again.
Matthew is able to recover well.
Matthew and Marilla are brothers and sisters. They share a good bond with each other, although they usually don't show it.
