We've Gotten Our First Look At The New 'Hey Arnold' Movie And We Need It Now

- Page 1


If you were a kid in the late 90s and early 2000s, you almost definitely spent more than a few afternoons catching episodes of Hey Arnold!


Created in 1996 by Craig Bartlett (Rugrats and The Ren & Stimpy Show), Hey Arnold! focused on the titular character Arnold, a wise-beyond-his-years fourth grader who lives with his grandparents in a large inner-city boarding house.


The football-headed kid got into all sorts of situations and adventures alongside his best friend Gerald, his perpetual bully (who was secretly in love with him) Helga, and the rest of his eccentric classroom of crazy characters. Some of these adventures were pretty intense for a kids show!

Remember the Pigeon Man episode?Nickelodeon

It was an immensely popular show for Nickelodeon, resulting in 5 seasons and even a theatrically-released movie, the appropriately-titled Hey Arnold!: The Movie.


It comes as kind of a surprise then that the show ended on something of a cliffhanger. Arnold had recently found a map that was supposed to lead to the last-known location of his parents, who disappeared into the jungle on a humanitarian mission. This was supposed to be the setup for a second movie, Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie.


Unfortunately, a dispute between Nickelodeon and Bartlett led to Bartlett leaving the show, and the second movie never happened... until NOW!


That's right, Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie is finally happening.

'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us


Steve From 'Blue's Clues' Wants The Thinking Chair Back, And He's Willing To Fight For It

Hosting a kid's show is probably pretty fun, but I assume it gets a little bit tedious. I mean, even Sherry Lewis must have gotten annoyed by "The Song That Never Ends" after a while. It's a lot of repetition, and reviewing a lot of really basic skills, but I guess seeing the smiles on all those kids faces makes it all worth it. Blue's Clues was one of the biggest kids shows around, and millions of kids would sing along with the "Mail Time" song multiple times a day (much to their parent's annoyance). The host of the show


Fox Really Wants A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Reboot, And Honestly We'd Rather Get Staked

Bad news everyone, the reboot train is still chugging along, picking up unwilling and unwanted passengers along the way. At first the reboots were cute. It was nice to have those little reminders of our past. Sure, tell me what happened to the Tanner sisters, I'll admit I was curious. Or remake my favorite Disney movies with real humans instead of cartoons, because I can very easily ignore those and just watch my old VHS versions a hundred times. I know I shouldn't be too precious with the past, because a lot of things we grew up watching were remakes


There's A New MTV Clothing Line And We Can't Wait To Get Our Hands On It

Hands up if you spent your entire childhood glued to the TV watching all the videos on MTV. Pretty much all of you right? Perfect. Watching MTV was the best. You got to see all of the coolest music videos, which meant that you knew all the best songs, all the newest dance moves, and all the rad styles. As MTV evolved over the years, it kind of lost that magic that made it the go-to location for awesome music, and instead has turned into a reality TV station. Really the only reality show we wanted to watch was The
