  • Trivia

    • Goof: in "Headless Cabbie," when Arnold begins telling the "Headless Cabbie," he is seen wearing socks without shoes. When he finishes the story, he has shoes on. Then Harold is scared by the story, and then Arnold is seen with socks without shoes on again.

    • When Arnold is telling the story of the Headless Cabbie, he keeps on repeating the words, "the Headless Cabbie." Every time he said it, he sounded like the voice actor of Arnold in Seasons 2 - 3.

    • When Mr. Hyunh removes his hood, we can see his glasses have thick frames. But in later shots, it has thin frames.

  • Quotes

    • Grandma: Happy Friday the thirteenth!

    • Gerald: (sees black cats) That's not exactly the sign I was looking for.
      Arnold: They're probably Grandma's cats. She's... uh... collecting them...
      Gerald: Collecting them?
      Arnold: Don't ask...

    • Stinky: (telling his scary story) This here yarn of a horror is about the ever-frighting: Monkeycat. In the dingy laboratory of the despicable Dr. Mischief, there lived an old furry cat. One day, the cat snuck into the cage of a frisky monkey and got himself caught. Dr Mischief watched as the monkey and the cat began to fight, they became entangled together and that's when the evil doctor got his big idea. He cut off the monkey's head and sewed on the cat's body and invented...Monkeycat!
      Gerald: Monkeycat?
      Stinky: Monkeycat!
      Gerald: What's so scary about that?
      Stinky: It's a banana eating milk drinking horror monster, Monkeycat!
      Harold: (throws his pillow at Stinky) That's not scary! That's stupid!
