Hey Arnold Revival

Hey Arnold! Revival Movie Will Reportedly Feature Arnold's Parents

If Stoop Kid’s looking for another reason to leave his stoop, I think I’ve finally found one.

Nickelodeon is currently developing a made-for-TV Hey Arnold! movie, set shortly after the events of the June 2004 series finale, our sister publication Variety reports.

Though Nickelodeon couldn’t confirm when the movie might air, we do know it will tie up several loose ends, including answering the big mystery surrounding Arnold’s M.I.A. parents. (Update: Arnold’s parents were shown once in the “Parents Day” special in 2000.) The titular character, he with a head shaped like a football, previously starred in his own big-screen movie in 2002.

Variety‘s report adds that — following the success of the network’s Splat block of programming — Hey Arnold! could be the first of several Nickelodeon classics poised to get the TV movie treatment.

What do you hope to see in the Hey Arnold! movie? And which other Nick gems would you like revived? Drop a comment with your thoughts below.

    Nice! I remember they had plans for a movie before but when the previous one didn’t do good they scrapped it.

    Will they reveal Arnold’s last name too?

  7. Steven says:

    I’d love to see a Rocko or Aah Real Monsters movie!

  8. LE says:

    OMG yes! yes! yes! But the original creator will be involved?

    Yaaasss!!! This is giving me so much life right now! Childhood nostalgia for the win.

    I liked Hey Arnold!, but it wasn’t my favorite. Will still watch the movie. Hopefully they keep the animations the same. I want to see Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, Invader Zim, and Rocko’s Modern Life made into movies.

    Looking very forward to this! I get the feeling the story about Arnold’s parents is going to be very heartbreaking in some ways, but I’m intrigued to learn more about that mystery all the same. This was, and still is, one of my favorite animated series, so I’m excited to see them continue it.
