Hey Arnold! The Complete Series ~ #Review

We watch a lot of shows on either DVD or online streaming on either Netflix or YouTube since we don't have cable.  We lived without cable for so long that I don't miss it.  I think it is the best when TV shows are released on DVDs - no more waiting for the next episodes.  What does a DVD set with all 99 episodes of “Hey! Arnold” mean? A lazy weekend with the kids watching a “Hey! Arnold” marathon.

Hey Arnold! The Complete Series

I had always enjoyed watching a whole season at once. I don’t need to wait for the next episode. The kids and I really enjoyed watching this DVD collection. The stories and dialogue are well written. Some parts were funny and touching that is great for all ages. I found it funny that Helga has a crush on Arnold but acts terrible mean to him. There has been a few times she was close telling him how much she likes him. I wonder if she will eventually let him know. One of my favourite episodes was the Christmas one where Arnold helped Mr Hyunh to find his long-lost daughter. It was moving and I got teary eyed. This DVD set is a must have to be enjoyed by the whole family for weeks.  Make some popcorn and sit down with your kids and enjoy the wonderful world of "Hey! Arnold".

Available August 19th, 2014 only at Wal-Mart

Your favorite football head and all his pals are here with enough fun and laughs to cover several city blocks! On August 19th, 2014, Shout! Factory will release Hey Arnold! The Complete Series, a 16-DVD box set featuring all 99 big-city adventures from the classic Nickelodeon animated series.

Life in the big city is one big adventure for Arnold. Living with his grandparents, who run the Sunset Arms boarding house, Arnold shares a roof with a diverse and unusual menagerie of characters (including his pet pig!). But as any fourth grader knows, some of the most memorable people you’ll ever meet are in school. With friends like Arnold’s (including storyteller Gerald, class jinx Eugene, sometime-bully Harold, and the tomboy Helga, who harbors a secret crush on our hero), you can be sure that he’s got some funny exploits to share with fans.

Hey Arnold! features an all-star voice cast, including Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons), Francesca Smith (Recess), Toran Caudell (Recess) and Jamil Walker Smith (SGU Stargate Universe). Created by Craig Bartlett as a comic in 1986, Hey Arnold! debuted as an animated short for the Nickelodeon film Harriet the Spy in 1996. Hey Arnold! went on to air on Nickelodeon from 1996 to 2001. The show also aired on "Nick on CBS" from 2002 until 2004. Whether you want to revisit your own childhood memories or create new ones with your kids, Shout! Factory has two words for you: Hey Arnold!
