“Mindy Turns 5” – Half-Hour Special!

Mindy has finally turned 5 and is super excited that she is now old enough to go to space. But she’s planned a tea party in the back yard. The kids convince Mindy to move her tea party to the Moon! In her first trip to space ever, Mindy gets to board the Propulsion family saucer and experience space travel, rounding out their Moon tea party with a quick trip out to Pluto and back.

“Endless Summer”: Jet is amazed to find out that the entire Earth doesn’t have the same season at the same time.  So he flies with Sydney and Sean from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere to compare, and experience holidays in winter and summer… all in one day!

“Jet Shrinks the Kids”: Mindy feels bad that she’s the smallest kid in the group, so sympathetic Jet and friends use a shrink-ray and become her size. The plan goes awry, and Jet, Sean, Sydney, and Sunspot become the size of mice. Mindy has to follow intricate diagrams to reverse the shrink-ray!

“Mindy’s Ice Rink”: Mindy is impatient for winter because she wants to ice skate. So Jet, Sean, Sydney, and Celery fly to Saturn’s icy rings to gather ice from them, and return to build a Saturn-ringed skating rink around Jet’s house.

“Measure for Measure”: Jet, Sydney, Sean, Mindy, and Sunspot decide to make a scaled replica of the solar system using found items in their own neighborhood, and in doing so learn that an Astronomical Unit is the distance from the Earth to the Sun.

“Mindy and Carrot Bake”: While making a cake, Carrot and Mindy find they are one are short one ingredient, so they head to the store, but Carrot accidentally pushes a wrong button on the wagon’s newly-updated control panel and they take off into outer space! Using a diagram, methodical experimentation, and record keeping, Mindy and Carrot figure out how to properly fly the saucer back home, where they finally finish the cake.

“Commander Cressida Begins”: Mindy has a problem: now that she’s been to space with the bigger kids, she realizes how much there is out there to see! How can she decide where to explore next? Sydney asks her mom, Dr. Skelley, who presents them with the very first edition of Commander Cressida comics! In reading the comic book, Mindy comes to appreciate that she, like Commander Cressida, can explore space “one adventure at a time.”

Friday, April 6, 2018

“Mindy’s Bedtime”: Mindy has to go to bed when the Sun goes down, but she’s having such a fun day with her friends, she asks Jet and the others to help her keep the Sun from going down. The older kids humor Mindy and try to help “slow down the Sun.” All their efforts make Mindy so sleepy that she decides to go home and sleep.

“Galileo, Galileo!”: Sydney and Jet are having a hard time explaining to Mindy that the Sun doesn’t move – the Earth is moving around the Sun, so the Sun just SEEMS to move. Then Sean comes over dressed as his science hero Galileo, getting ready to do a school report. Mindy asks “Galileo” to explain how come the Sun seems to move, and Sean practices for his report by explaining how the planets move, in character as Galileo!

What a brilliant way to spend Thanksgiving weekend than to watch the conclusion to a show that ended 10+ years ago. Arnold and the gang headed off to San Lorenzo to unfold the mysteries of his parent’s whereabouts. First off, bravo to creators and writers behind Hey Arnold. It was exciting, hilarious, mindblowing, and emotional to a lot of us who grew up watching Hey Arnold as kids. As someone in their twenties, this movie definitely brought my childhood self back out of me. It was a breath of fresh air to finally receive some kind of closure and conclude the cliffhanger once and for all. There was so much that happened in this movie that words can barely express it. Beware, this article contains spoilers. If you haven’t watched The Jungle Movie yet, it will be playing on Nickelodeon & TeenNick’s NickSplat block all weekend and possibly into next week. Also, prepare to have your mind blown.

1) Turns out Arnold’s last name was a revelation to a lot of people.

Miles and Stella Shortman were found, and they were reunited with Arnold and the rest of the boarding house family. The sight of Arnold’s pupils growing as he realizes that he no longer has to dream about finding his parents because they are right in front of him was almost too emotional to handle.

‘Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie’ continues a journey that was last left off over ten years ago. Arnold Shortman is a 10-year-old calm & optimistic boy who resides in the city of Hillwood where he faces everyday life and challenges along with his neighborhood friends who he also attends school with. He lives in a boarding house with his paternal grandparents and other non-relative residents, who he considers to be family since he grew up living with them. Everything may seem quite alright in Arnold’s world, but throughout the series, we learn that there is a deep curiosity that he faces. Arnold wants to know what happened to his parents. Stella & Miles Shortman are Arnold’s mother & father, who dropped him off with Phil & Gertrude when he was a small child to go help the people of San Lorenzo, who are suffering from a terrible illness. As they flew off in the plane to begin their journey, Stella & Miles were never heard from again.

The Jungle Movie is going to answer all of the burning questions that many fans have asked. After all these years, we are finally going to learn the fate and whereabouts of Arnold’s missing parents. There was a lot of new and exciting information that was just revealed at the Hey Arnold Panel at New York Comic Con 2017!

Hey Arnold is one of the biggest 90s Nickelodeon reboots that is happening. This highly anticipated TV movie is sure to rock the network yet again and reveal the ultimate truth of what happened to Arnold’s parents. Arnold and his Hillwood pals are heading to the 6th grade and a jungle adventure in the fictional country of San Lorenzo in Central America. Now let me warn you, the crew from Arnold’s stoop are getting some very fashionable makeovers – and Gerald’s hair lost a few inches!

The original series of Hey Arnold ended more than 10 years ago, but it ended with a more major cliffhanger than we thought.
