To me, it'a a great show. It'a about a 9yr old football head boy named Arnold and his live in the suberbs. He lives with his grandparents because his parent's are missing. His best friend is Gerald. A African American. He is also friends with Stinky, Sid, Harold, Phebie, Helga ( who secretly likes him) and more.

Oh yes, I agree. Masterful.

Pixarteo: I'm sorry to hear that! There's episodes on youtube, it's a fantastic show.

This topic is also about our nostalgia. We say why we like the old cartoons better.

I'm not sure if you're saying he lives in a suburbs, because he most definitely does not, but he lives in a city that I always thought was NYC. I was surprised to find out the show's creators meant for it to be somewhat ambiguous, but that's just silly. The schools are called P.S. #__, there's always jazz music, people have stoops in front of their apartment buildings, there are a lot of people who have New York accents, etc. Come on, it's totally NYC!

I hardly see how these AREN'T related. How could we talk about kids' channels without talking about the shows on them? Or that used to be on them, rather.

They also never said Arnold's last name. I read that it's suppose to be Shortman

You're both right about the NYC influence. But no Chicago or San Francisco, and there are personal reasons for the city influences.

Hey Arnold! takes place in the fictional American city of Hillwood.

Craig Bartlett stated in an interview that the city on the show is based on large northern cities, which includes Seattle (his hometown), Portland, Oregon (where he went to art school) and New York City (from which many landmarks were borrowed).

Pixarmilan said to me that he heard of the show but now I sort of remember that I did see ads and stuff. :?

I remember the Old Boomerang. I remember shows like Top Cat, Tom and Jerry, The Flinstones and my favorite, Wacky Races. I miss getting up at 5am to watch those shows...
