Those of you who know me on these forums are probably aware of how much I hate coming-of-age stories and the cheesy morality plays they usually turn out to be. But that is not to say that there aren't shows in this genre that I make exceptions for. And Hey Arnold! is one of those exceptions.

I think it has to do with the fact that most of these shows focused on the main characters' families, and I always found these families to be incredibly dull and cliched. HA!'s decision to focus more on Arnold and his classmates was definitely one of its strengths, as they were much more interesting characters and their shenanigans made for a much more interesting show. I guess it's why I look back on it fondly - it was one of those things like Peanuts or Ed, Ed n Eddy that made the kids the most important aspect, that let them figure the world out on their own instead of needing a parental figure to deliver a sermon at the end of the episode.

So naturally, when they make a reboot movie of one of my comic's biggest influences, of course I have to watch it.

And you know it's gonna be a doozy when they finally give us Arnold's last name. (So obvious...)

Color me surprised to learn how much of the original cast they got back - regulars AND one-offs. (Caught this on NickSplat - had a bunch of behind-the-scenes stuff. Hi Craig - my nieces love Dinosaur Train.)

Never mind the shirt-versus-skirt controversy - I always thought that Phoebe wore a hat.

We've been searching for a heart of gold. And we're getting old.

So there's our closure. Arnold's parents, Arnold's last name, ArnoldxHelga...even a bit of GeraldxPhoebe thrown in to make it final.

That was quite enjoyable. One part Indiana Jones, one part Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown, one part...well...Hey Arnold!.

Nothing left to do now but wait for the Rocko movie. Maybe we'll finally learn HIS last name.

Wait did Phebe know about Helga's feelings for Arnold, because I don't remember that being the case on the show.
I remember it was hinted that she knew in that episode where Helga kept sleepwalking and waking up in Arnold's house, but I think that was the only time.

I believe it was simulcasted on the main channel, TeenNick (NickSplat) and Nicktoons.
I'm talking about the rerun. I already know Nicktoons and TeenNick simulcast with Nick for the premiere. NickSplat and TeenNick are not same, NickSplat starts at 11pm, Movie started at a time 7PM, meaning it's technically not at NickSplat time

I can't understand why it didn't do well on the ratings. It's not that I'm expecting a new season of Hey Arnold and the Jungle Movie was meant to be a conclusion of the show, but I'm just disappointed it didn't do well in the ratings. I blame Spongebob for it.:rolleyes:

People keep bringing this up, but I couldv'e sworn that this was already a thing.

Me and my family watched it on the app, could that be a factor?

Probably because a lot of the younger viewers have never seen Hey Arnold! before and they probably wanted to watch the Loud House and Teen Titans Go! over the Hey Arnold! Jungle Movie. That probably resulted from the ratings going down because most of the younger viewers didn't watch the movie.

Most Europeans here don't know about the old Grinch Christmas special. Even in Portugal.
When Is the Nickelodeon Highlights usually up for December? I Was just wondering...
I just had a bizzaro dream that Frank Welker was in my computer lab on campus! o_0
My personal synopsis: I'm not the most energetic or enthusiastic person you'll ever meet, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun. Generally, I'm pretty introverted and usually play video games, watch anime, and also study in the field of IT. I'm a huge music fanatic, as well. And I listen to pretty much everything except country. My favorites being trap, jazz, and metal.
anyone else surprised that new Paw Patrol one hour special are now Nick's #1 most watched premieres in 2018 so far?
