  • Actual Finale

    This episode is the actual series finale of Hey Arnold. It was such a good show, and the finale overall was handled greatly, but the end totally leaves you wanting more. There was originally a TV movie that was going to continue the series, but it was never completed, which is a total shame. This was such a good episode, I didn't really understand the ending at first but now I do. It was great, funny, and a fantastic ending.



    So, all in all, I really miss this show, and this was a great finale. Overall grade is easily an A+moreless

    This was a good episode. I admit I don't like Hey Arnold that much. In fact I hate the character of Helga, this episode was very well done. It was so sad, that Arnold never got to see his parents at the end. I heard that the Creator Craig Bartlett was planning on making a 2nd Hey Arnold movie but that never happened. Bartlett left Nickolodeon do to some problems and went to Cartoon Network. I liked this episode alot bu I didn't feel like it was a concludatory note to the series. When Arnold got the map that was great, I wish they had continued on. That just mad me angry. It sucked, they couldn't finish the story of Arnold and his parents. However this episode was still pretty good.

    • Tiny Toon Adventures also has 100 episodes, The Wild Thornberrys ended with 91, Jimmy Neutron ended with 60.

    • In some airings, you might be able to hear the first few letters of Arnold's last name. The first airing had the priest say, "Mr. and Mrs. Kl--". This could be Klein, the voice of Arnold from '99-'02. In some frequent airings, the last name begins with a K, in some airings, you see him about the say Kl, and in the rest, the line with the letters is not shown.

    • Right when we are about to find out Arnold's last name, Pookie interrupts with a belch, leaving us once again clueless.

    • Did you notice that Arnold's voice is lighter compared to to the last two seasons.
      That's Right: Once again, Arnold faces the "Same Character, Different Actor" situation for him.
      Alex Linz replaces Spencer Klein, who was Arnold from 1999 to early-2002, as Arnold (Haven't I seen him before in Max Keeble, or is Arnold played by another person named Alex Linz).
      Different voices often replace Arnold so it doesn't sound like Arnold hit puberty at age nine (why didn't they bother replacing Twister's voice in 2001 when it sounded like a nine year old going through puberty.
      The old voices of Arnold are Toran Caudell (1996-1997), Philip van Dyke (1997-1999), and Spencer Klein (1999-2002).
      Linz is the last person to voice Arnold, since the show is cancelled due to the creator's dillema with Party Wagon.

    • Thank God Nick had enough of that "dead" rule last year.
      When the "Parent's Day" episode premiered, because of the "don't say dead" rule, Arnold's parents disappeared upon going on the airplane to South America, and we don't know if they are dead or alive.

    • It is rare for a Nick show to have over 100 episodes.
      Only Rugrats and Doug are the only shows to have 100 or more.

    • This is the 100th episode of Hey Arnold.

    • This was supposed to be a lead-in for the second movie, dubbed "Jungle Movie", assuming Nick ever makes it.
