11 Moments From Hey Arnold That Changed My Life

Reminiscing about old TV shows can really bring a generation together and I honestly don’t think that there is another cartoon out there that has the power to do that quite like Hey Arnold.

I’m going to make a pretty bold statement here so brace yourself: I honestly think that Hey Arnold was the best children’s cartoon of the ’90s. I’m only realizing this now that I’m older and a little wiser, but Hey Arnold was a legitimately clever show. It was also funny but had its moments of seriousness that taught us all a little lesson without whacking us upside the head with it.

The characters were so diverse and full of life and its use of jazz was also really unique. I still watch episodes now. Not only was this show super formative for me, it has also aged really well compared to other shows of its time. Here are 11 moments from Hey Arnold that definitely changed my life (for the better).

    I think the most moving episode of Hey Arnold was the one where we learn the back story of Arnold’s parents and what happened to them. We still don’t know if they’re dead or still lost somewhere in the amazon trying to find their way out. The saddest part is that Arnold never even got to know his real parents. But luckily he had very loving grandparents who raised him instead. It was very moving and sad.
