Hey, Football Heads! Nickelodeon’s beloved animated series Hey Arnold! may have gone off the air back in 2004, but the show’s main romance lives on. I speak, of course, of the love of one Helga Pataki for her archnemesis, the oddly shaped Arnold. Helga may have hated Arnold in public, but in private, she fantasized about their future together while building a shrine of photos and bubble gum.
To promote the networks upcoming Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie, SYFY WIRE recently got the chance to visit the Pataki house at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 and see how Helga’s collection of Arnold memorabilia has been growing these last 13 years or so. They even got a tour from the girl herself!:
Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie takes the kids on the field trip of a lifetime: action packed and full of adventure! They’ll join Arnold on a quest in which he’ll try to achieve his ultimate dream and finally find his missing parents. It all starts when Arnold and his classmates take a trip to San Lorenzo, South America, which, coincidentally, is the last place Arnold’s parents were seen! Their trip takes a turn when pirates kidnap Arnold and his friends! From there it’s one jungle hazard after another, and the gang must put their heads together to get out of danger. As the leader of the journey, Arnold must make sure he and his friends survive safely, all while working towards a reunion he’s dreamt of his whole life!
The two-hour TV movie features a storyline that picks up from where the original series ended in the "The Journal" in 2004 and resolves unanswered questions and plotlines-including Arnold finally getting answers about the whereabouts of his missing parents, Arnold's last name, and how Arnold feels about Helga! The movie is co-written and executive produced by the series’ original creator Craig Bartlett and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.
Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie is slated to premiere on Nickelodeon USA on Thursday 23rd November 2017, as part of the networks Thanksgiving celebrations.
