In the Halloween episode where Arnold and his friends fake an alien invasion, the name of the place where the "U.F.O." (actually the water tower with Christmas lights) landed is Well's Ridge. This is a reference to Orson Welles, who did a fake radio broadcast in which aliens landed on Earth. See more »

"Hey Arnold" is certainly the best thing Nickelodeon have produced in a long time, probably since "The Adventures of Pete and Pete". At the time of writing, I am 16 years of age but I still enjoy "Hey Arnold" just as much as I used to. It hasn't worn at all with age, whereas another once splendid show - "The Simpsons" - is beginning to lose it's edge, despite once being the funniest thing on TV. "Hey Arnold" is still highly amusing and always carries a significant message for everyday life. If I'm feeling down, this extraordinary show always cheers me up. Definitely one for kids and adults alike, I'd recommend this gem of a cartoon to anyone.
