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 one of the few surviving goodies currently airing on Nickelodeon. Unlike say, Rocket Power, or The Wild Thornberrys, this show manages to make even the most sincere topics interesting and funny, complete with great artwork. I'd recommend it as second best Nicktoon of the decade, and I hope someday, Hey Arnold! can walk home with at least one Emmy Award.
