Trivia

When Arnold and his friends visit Wheezin Ed, Sheena's Uncle Earl asks for a payment to take them over to Elk Island by boat. He asks for one dollar each, two dollars for Harold, fifty cents per shovel, and five cents security deposit. If Arnold and his six friends paid for the ride and shovels, it would come out to $8 + $4 + $0.40 = $12.40 for taking them to the island and twelve dollars he made in profit if they were able to give back the security deposit.

User Reviews

Possibly the best Nicktoon
13 June 2000 | by plok253See all my reviews

Hey Arnold! was created back in 1996. At first look, I thought it was going to be stupid, but when I watched it, I realized how cool the show really is. It really demonstrates how hard it can be growing up. Everyone seems to look up to Arnold, and are always asking him for help. Even when Arnold didn't do anything, someone always gets him into the middle of an argument. Better yet, Arnold is always able to figure things out in the end. Overall, this show is more realistic than some soap operas and teen shows are, and is very entertaining.
