Those of you who know me on these forums are probably aware of how much I hate coming-of-age stories and the cheesy morality plays they usually turn out to be. But that is not to say that there aren't shows in this genre that I make exceptions for. And Hey Arnold! is one of those exceptions. I think it has to do with the fact that most of these shows focused on the main characters' families, and I always found these families to be incredibly dull and cliched. HA!'s decision to focus more on Arnold and his classmates was definitely one of its strengths, as they were much more interesting characters and their shenanigans made for a much more interesting show. I guess it's why I look back on it fondly - it was one of those things like Peanuts or Ed, Ed n Eddy that made the kids the most important aspect, that let them figure the world out on their own instead of needing a parental figure to deliver a sermon at the end of the episode. So naturally, when they make a reboot movie of one of my comic's biggest influences, of course I have to watch it. And you know it's gonna be a doozy when they finally give us Arnold's last name. (So obvious...) Color me surprised to learn how much of the original cast they got back - regulars AND one-offs. (Caught this on NickSplat - had a bunch of behind-the-scenes stuff. Hi Craig - my nieces love Dinosaur Train.) Never mind the shirt-versus-skirt controversy - I always thought that Phoebe wore a hat. We've been searching for a heart of gold. And we're getting old. So there's our closure. Arnold's parents, Arnold's last name, ArnoldxHelga...even a bit of GeraldxPhoebe thrown in to make it final. That was quite enjoyable. One part Indiana Jones, one part Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown, one part...well...Hey Arnold!. Nothing left to do now but wait for the Rocko movie. Maybe we'll finally learn HIS last name. I remember it was hinted that she knew in that episode where Helga kept sleepwalking and waking up in Arnold's house, but I think that was the only time.
