Life in the big city is one big adventure for Arnold. Living with his grandparents, who run the Sunset Arms boarding house, Arnold shares a roof with a diverse and unusual menagerie of characters (including his pet pig!). But as any fourth grader knows, some of the most memorable people you’ll ever meet are in school. With friends like Arnold’s (including storyteller Gerald, class jinx Eugene, sometime-bully Harold, and the tomboy Helga, who harbors a secret crush on our hero), you can be sure that he’s got some funny exploits to share with fans.Our Thoughts:
Hey Arnold! features an all-star voice cast, including Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons), Francesca Smith (Recess), Toran Caudell (Recess) and Jamil Walker Smith (SGU Stargate Universe). Created by Craig Bartlett as a comic in 1986, Hey Arnold! debuted as an animated short for the Nickelodeon film Harriet the Spy in 1996. Hey Arnold! went on to air on Nickelodeon from 1996 to 2001. The show also aired on "Nick on CBS" from 2002 until 2004. Whether you want to revisit your own childhood memories or create new ones with your kids, Shout! Factory has two words for you: Hey Arnold!
I remember watching Hey Arnold! when I was a preteen/teenager and absolutely loving it. Loving it! So needless to say I was super excited to be able to watch the entire 99-episode series on DVD anytime my heart so desired. I know my munchkin is a little young to fully enjoy the humor in it now, but having this piece of my adolescence on DVD reassures me that when the time is right he will be able to see the same things that I saw at his age.
Hey Arnold! is the story of young Arnold living in the city with his grandparents, who run a boarding home full of unique characters and hi jinks to get into. My favorite character in the series was always Helga, the unibrowed tomboy who outwardly despises yet secretly pines for Arnold (She even keeps a shrine dedicated to him in her closet, complete with a pre-chewed bubblegum bust of Arnold!)
I love watching episodes when I feel like reminiscing about my younger years and the carefree feelings it invokes. Hey Arnold! is perfect for doing just that, and creating new bonds and moments with the newer generations.
