  • Abner runs away; Arnold loses his grandpa's watch

    9.5
    Abner Come Home:

    Arnold must find a way to recover his pig pet Abner after he runs away. An enjoyable and heartwarming episode...this is better than its partner. I liked/laughed at the beginning where Arnold has fun with Abner, later he chases a cat (then he is gone missing), flashback of Abner in the door (he kept getting dirty),Abner going to a pig danger zone, Arnold getting ideas from Grandpa and he kisses him, then he fell off, Arnold and Gerald trying to attach Abner, then he came back, and the last 30 seconds (kinda cracked at Ernie and Grandpa crying). Overall score 10/10



    The Sewer King:

    Arnold loses Grandpa Phil's watch inside the sewers, so he must retrieve it from The Sewer King. Not as enjoyable as Abner Come Home. My only complaint was the sewer king was getting a little annoying and this episode wasn't my favorite anyways. I liked/laughed at what would happen if Arnold and Gerald fell off, Sewer King saving Arnold and Gerald, Arnold and Sewer King playing chess in order to get the watch, Grandpa dropping the watch, and that's all. Overall score: 9/10moreless
  • Sewer King- 9.6/10 Abner Cme Home- 8.7/10

    The sewer king episode scared me. I found him a very sinister individual, hiding down the crevaces of New York city with his rats- and that cold, green, slimy face. What did he eat down there? What did he do all day? It was something out of a horror movie when he was chasing arnold and gerald out of the sewers! Alas A and G do (luckily) escape, theres no telling what that crazy man would have done had he caught them. I find arnolds entire boarding house 'family' incredibly entertaining. They are so refreshing, so unusual, and all possess unique characters (kudos to the writers). The ep where abnar runs way is a 'solid' episode, not one of the best episodes ever but humourous and light.moreless
  • Great episode.

    9.2
    This episode was a great one because it was very unique and also I think was good because Arnold's pig ran away and I think that was terrible and the way Arnold was sad because of that I didn't like to see characters like that in no episode. Also it was funny that man shouted at Abner and said that he was going to make him a football. I like the part when Arnold got reunited with Abner because it was a happy moment in the episode.



    The other episode was good and it made me laugh the way thraat man lived in the sewer as a king and the way Arnold and Gerald played chess with him was also a good part in the episode.moreless
