    THERE was a time where the saturday morning Nickolodeon lineup didn't suck. And one of the best shows from said lineup was Hey Arnold!

    I grew up with that show. It had a strong role model protagonist, something lac king in this day of PC oh we have to pick a minority-or-woman-or-whatever-just-because-they-aren't-represented-very-often protagonists, where the story just falls apart because of the emphasis placed on how that protagonist is "culturally different". Anyone have fond memories of this show that they would like to share?

    That football head was a good example to every child from the '90s.

    It was pretty good. Never one of my favourites, but I always watched it quite happily.

    I watched it occasionally, because I was a 90's child in a sense. Forgot about it until now.

    I had to do a search...


    Mmmh. I definitely remember glimpsing that show on TV here. Didn't know it was good, cos the art is a definite turn-off for me :(

    I was just using Hey Arnold! to clarify a point the other day..

    "You know, in Hey Arnold!, there was 'like you like you' and just like 'like you'."

    It was a show about the genuine 90's and what they meant to us! :)
    Me too, together with Rocko's Modern World or As told by Ginger! All those good shows got cancelled one after another, only to be replaced by not-funny, inferior shows.
    Yes, but why does Nick suck today so very hard? :(
