  • Saddest Episode Ever

    This is probably the saddest episodes ever. I actually cried in the part when Arnold finds out the truth about his parents. I really love this episode, but at the same time, it's sad.

    Arnold and his grandparents compete at "Parent's Day", where kids and their parents compete in obstacles and challenges to try and win a trophy. Big Bob insults Arnold, and Arnold asks his grandfather to reveal what really happened to his parents.



    Wow, I don't know what I love more; this episode, or the fact that this is a children's cartoon. This episode is really sad, and kind of depressing, and yet, it aired in a show for children. When I was younger I did not like this a lot, but I recently rewatched it, and by god, it's such a great episode. Has some humor and is really sad; Arnold's parents leaving, and little Arnold saying goodbye to them… god this was great. Grade- A+moreless

    In my opinion, there has never been a bad episode of Hey Arnold (at least not from what I've seen, and I grew up with this series), but I've never seen one as moving and tearjerking as this one. I couldn't turn the channel, even during commercial breaks, for fear of missing a second of the episode. The ending really got to me, with Arnold climbing onto his roof and into the plane. That, along with the music, was too much for me, and I literally started crying...



    I'm sorry to see such a good series end T-T

    I can\'t beileve i cryed during this whole episode.

    This is the first episode in any serise of any show that i cryed during the whole thing. Then that night I dreamed that my parents ended up like Arnolds parents. I agree that they should have gone further with the serise and made Arnold meet his parents.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Curiously, in Arnolds's flashbacks and reality, neither Oskar and Suzy nor Hyunh nor Ernie appear in this episode, which suppose that the boarding house is now a simple house in which Arnold and his grandparents live. Moreover, in the final episode, only Arnold and his grandparents are seen in the boarding house.

    • Towards the end of this episode, when Arnold's parents are leaving, his Grandma's hair is brown, but a few seconds later in the same scene it is gray.
