Hey Arnold! was one of my favorite cartoons as I watched them with my kids. Hell, I even still watch reruns of it. Hey Arnold was a cartoon ahead of it’s time, and had a level of storytelling that was full of heart and deep rooted in the stories we all told each other as kids. Every kid had their legends that they passed down from kid generation to kid generation. Arnold was the keeper of those tales, along with Gerald, Helga, Harold, Sid and all the others.
Now, Nickelodeon has a huge look at the new Hey Arnold Jungle Movie, coming exclusively to Nickeolodeon.
Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie is an action-packed TV movie that takes kids on the field trip of a lifetime, following Arnold and his friends on a quest to achieve his ultimate dream of finding his missing parents. The two-hour TV movie features a storyline that picks up from where the original series ended in 2004 and resolves unanswered questions and plotlines-including Arnold finally getting answers about the whereabouts of his missing parents. The movie is co-written and executive produced by the series’ original creator Craig Bartlett and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.
