    Beaned: When Helga gets hit with a baseball during a game, she develops a case of amnesia, so Arnold stays with her all day because he feels responsible. The next day, Helga regains her memories, though, when she realizes what Arnold is doing, she decides to continue to play the part of an amnesiac in hopes of spending more time with him. I thought that this was an excellent episode of "Hey Arnold". Helga getting amnesia after getting hit in the head with a baseball was a nice touch to the whole storyline and I loved it. Arnold taking care of Helga while she has amnesia was very nice. It was also funny that Helga got her memory back the next day but after her mom told her about Arnold taking care of her then that's when she PRETENDED to have amnesia so Arnold is forced to hang out with her. I also loved the very ending of the episode as well. Overall, not really much to say except that it was a perfect episode of "Hey Arnold". 10/10



    Old Iron Man:''Grandpa Phil and his old friend have been feuding for quite some time, as their friendship fell apart years ago.

This was a superb episode of "Hey Arnold" and while it isn't my favorite, it is pretty enjoyable to watch. Grandpa and his friend Jimmy having a feud on who is the best and getting competitive at one thing after another was kinda boring after a while and not really that funny except for maybe a few of their competitions. I also found the last couple minutes of the episode to be a little rushed. My score isn't more lower than it should be though because the storyline was overall pretty good and it's handled well for the most part. Not much humor but it had an enjoyable plot. Kinda didn't like the ending with Grandpa and his friend Jimmy having their feud again after they just made up but oh well. Overall, a superb episode of "Hey Arnold" but it wasn't my favorite though. 9/10moreless
