Goofs

In "Biosquare", Arnold and Helga enter the greenhouse at 8:00 AM and must stay in there for 24 hours. When they wake up the next morning, Arnold claims there is six hours to go. This means it is 2:00 AM yet the sun is up and shining. See more »

Up there with the best of them
2 November 2000 | by (Doncaster, England) – See all my reviews

"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.
