A long proposed second Hey Arnold Movie with the subtitle "The Jungle Movie" was planned but got stuck in development hell. See more »

Goofs

In "24 Hours to Live", Helga calls and says "22 hours and 46 minutes until you die,". He then talks to Grandpa and goes up the stairs and talks to Grandma. The phone rings saying Arnold has 22 hours and 14 minutes. This means that it took half an hour to walk up the stairs. See more »

Quotes

[repeated line, usually after Helga screams so loud because she's afraid her secret is going to get out]
Arnold: Did you hear something?
Gerald: No, I didn't hear anything.

Good...
2 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

"Hey Arnold!" was a really good cartoon. I used to watch it when I was little in 1996 when I was nine years old. The show was pretty funny and the characters were realistic. I also liked the fact that the show had many different characters.

My favorite episode was "Arnold's Christmas". That episode was cute and sweet. I also liked the episodes: "Monkey Business", "Phoebe Cheats", "Arnold Betrays Iggy", "Helga on the Couch", and "Helga and the Nanny". Those episodes were great and hysterical. The movie was also really good.

Overall this was a good Nickelodeon show and I wish they still aired new episodes. I give this show 10/10 stars.
