  • Harsh lessons in perhaps the most hated episode of Hey Arnold

    6.0
    Love or hate this episode, it teaches some rather harsh lessons.





    Arnold promised Iggy that he would not reveal that Iggy wears feet pajamas. Unfortunately, Arnold gave himself away with his constant giggling and even said that he was laughing at something Iggy was wearing, which lead to Sid and Stinky guessing correctly on Iggy's pajamas. So, Arnold apologizes and even tries to buy Iggy's forgiveness. All to no avail. In the end, Iggy explains that the only way for things to be even is if Arnold wears the feet pajamas in public. Arnold is publicly humiliated, and Iggy over hears Sid and Stinky revealing the truth of the matter, but it's too late for Arnold.



    The episode really doesn't end with a moral, but it has a moral within the story regardless. One: if you ask for someone to forgive you of an offense, yet the person does not forgive you, leave him alone; at least you did your part. Two: DO NOT BUY FORGIVENESS for reasons explained in lesson number one. Arnold is the good kid who loves to help his friends, but he learned the hard way that some people are impossible to please.



    On a side not, always forgive even if the person does not forgive you. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you (Matthew 6:14)

  • I personally know who Arnold feels

    8.0
    what I mean is, I know what it's like not to be forgiven after saying sorry. Arnold might not have done anything wrong, but maybe, just maybe he could've done what I didn't do; move on. Iggy is just one person; one person who doesn't forgive you doesn't change who you are. I didn't know that then, but I know it now. But in any case, this isn't a bad episode. The writers were trying to portray what happens when you're not forgiven after you said sorry. "But he didn't do anything wrong, it was a Been through that too, just saying.moreless
