Your favorite football head and all his pals are here with enough fun and laughs to cover several city blocks! On August 19th, 2014, Shout! Factory will release Hey Arnold! The Complete Series, a 16-DVD box set featuring all 99 big-city adventures from the classic Nickelodeon animated series.
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.
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!
When Hey Arnold was running I was already in high school and at a point in my life where children cartoons were only a guilty pleasure I was forced to “endure” around my younger brother. My brother loves watching Hey Arnold and at one point it became almost ritual for my brother, my sister and myself to sit down and watch it together.
There is one particular episode that I have never forgotten; “Stoop Kid”. It made such an impression that the term stoop kid became part of our family language for the longest time. Stoop Kid is a kid who lives on his stoop and harasses the passers-by without ever leaving. Arnold proves Stoop Kid’s afraid to leave his stoop, he feels sorry for him and helps him to overcome his fears. In the end, Stoop Kid leaves his stoop but isn’t much otherwise changed.
Of course, there are many other fun episodes to watch so if you were a fan of Hey Arnold! this DVD collection is a must-have!
