20 years ago on October 7, 1996, Nickelodeon gave us one of their biggest Nicktoons in history, and now our favorite football head is coming back to our TV screens in November 2017. Created by Craig Bartlett, we saw the main protagonist Arnold “Shortman” through his kid adventures from living in a boarding house with his grandparents and seven other renters to his journey with his friends/classmates Gerald, Phoebe, Helga, Harold, Stinky, Sid, Eugene & more try to conquer the struggles of being 4th graders.

Although the series officially ended on June 8, 2004, we haven’t seen the last of Arnold and the gang. After consideration of rebooting the series along with other classic Nicktoons, on November 23, 2015, Nickelodeon officially confirmed that a new Hey Arnold TV Movie was in the works and it would “answer every fan’s burning questions” including the whereabouts of Arnold’s parents, who were presumed to be missing throughout the entire series, which resulted in Arnold staying with his grandparents for good. The two-part TV movie is set to air on November 23, 2017 on Nickelodeon, two years after the announcement of the movie.

Happy 20th Anniversary Hey Arnold!, we will love and cherish you along with the other classic Nicktoons forever. Don’t miss a single post: follow Cartoon Buzz on Twitter @cartoonbuzznet!
