god damn this show could get fucking dark.
This was a fucking joke in the show?

learning about the Vietnam war made that episode even more sad and watching that episode somehow made the Vietnam war even more sad
And it was clear Olga had more than a few issues on the back burner.
Half-and-half. I saw what an alcoholic looked like when my parents divorced.
Arnold was supposed to have had a complex himself, right? I don't remember if people just came to him for help, or if he couldn't stop himself from getting involved in problems.
>I don't remember if people just came to him for help, or if he couldn't stop himself from getting involved in problems.
From what I can remember, people always came to him because he was so reliable (and everyone was an incompetent lunatic). I think there was an episode were Arnold got tired of their shit.
>yfw realizing the bottom of Phoebe's outfit was not a skirt, but the bottom of her sweater
>she goes to school in a sweater and nothing else
Don't put words in my mouth. Im saying drunk people in fiction is not "dark" subject matter and isnt deep storytelling or anything. Considering how common it is its a very trite subject and no one is going to get "feels" from it unless they are mentally damaged.
that's a ridiculous assumption. people who's lives are affected by alcoholism will most definitely recognize some of that pattern and behavior in media and react to it. it is 'dark' because it's a taboo problem that most families hide away under a blanket. your definition of alcoholism seems stupidly generalized, and as far as statistics go, there's nothing plural or concrete about them, considering it's tied to a particular definition which regulates and conditions what a supposed 'alcoholic' will be. people who have lived through alcoholism know what that is, and they know how shit it gets.
Well my stepdad was a pretty bad one and I just found it incredibly annoying and inconvenient most of the time. Especially when he was a huge asshole when he was hungover and would throw up in the bath tub every other morning. So yeah. And I see drunks in fiction I don't get triggered by it and go,"Ohhhh man right in the feels bro :(".
>yfw you get a B
>Arnold was supposed to have had a complex himself, right?
It was a bit tough for Arnold to look the other way if someone needed help.
>I think there was an episode were Arnold got tired of their shit.
I think I know what you're talking about. There was an episode where Helga convinced the other kids to get Arnold to stop giving out advice. The kids do stupid shit and Helga gives them advice to fix it that just makes things worse. Helga then basically begs Arnold to start giving out advice again and all is well.
It kinda reminds of that Recess episode where Spinelli took over for Guru Kid.
Arnold also got tired of Mr Kokoshka because he was such a useless piece of shit.
He finally got a job as a paper boy (his first question was how many sick days he got) but was too lazy to get up and do the work, because he was 'sick' and 'hurt his back'. Arnold got pissed enough to call him a huge loser.
>Miriam used to be an olympic class swimmer and equestrian
>presumably gets knocked up by Bob in college
>marries him and has Olga, having to sacrifice all of her career and life ambitions to be a mother before she was ready
>drowns her sorrows with 'smoothies'
there's a ton of hints for all of this shit. Especially when Olga says she's getting married and Miriam responds by saying 'no honey, don't make the same mistake I made...'
I find 65% a huge stretch unless you use a very liberal definition like "has a drink every other day." I would be more likely to believe "65% of Americans drink alcohol." Not calling you a bullshitter but I want a link to back up cuz it's a big claim.
>Tfw alcohol will never be illegal again.
all of the commitment and effort that went into raising Olga probably just left her too exhausted and unmotivated to focus on Helga once Olga was out of the house too. In the flashback sequences Miriam seems much more energetic and attentive, but it's all being focused on Olga.
At the very least, it seemed like he could provide financially
Winning isn't everything, Olga.
It's the only thing.
He cared about his job more than he did his family, for sure.
Let's assume the series takes place in the "modern day," so mid-late 90s to early 00s, right? Bob is the owner of the biggest "beeper emporium" in the city in a time where beepers are starting to hit a decline and cell phones are starting to become a thing. However, he still thinks he's a big shot, the biggest shot actually, and throws his weight around like he's the most important guy in town.
This hurts his family because he expects them to treat him like a vassal would treat a king, not daughters/a wife to a father/husband. Bob showed he only really cared what happened to his family if it threatened his "beeper empire" or his reputation.

I miss you pop
There was an entire episode about it where Iggy kept guilting Arnold over something trivial because Arnold couldn't draw the line and tell him to knock it the fuck off. Everyone hates that episode for whatever reason, but I thought the lesson was a good one.
I was always hoping for a Lila redemption episode, where she would later join up with Helga and Phoebe as friends...
>But it was sorta Arnold's fault she acted toward him the way she did.
Lila literally did nothing wrong, it was Arnold's fault the whole time.
Yeah, he had the awkward family thing going on.
To read to much into it, he's probably so cheerful and encouraging of the kids because he's trying to be the person he needed in his life as a kid but didn't have.
dude, even as a kid I could tell she was suppose to be drunk, at least I made the connection, thanks to seeing my mom fairly drunk back then. how and why are people flipping so much shit at seeing subtle things people slipped in back then?
It really, Bob strikes me as the type of guy to s tray on the up and up of what's cool, so imagine home to have an apple store or something. He might not like it and bitch about his hipster a as employees at home, but I have no doubt he has the drive to stay sucessful. He's ducking rich as he'll though if he got Miriam sober enough to help out. They'd probably give Help a a job as an assistant manager in an attempt to spend time with her and teach her some values, but knowing her she'd see it as them using her for cheap labor.
Also, the episode that made Craig Bartlett so mad, he wrote off Iggy from the whole series.
nah he was selling Cell Phones during the show itself, and definitely uses one himself, he just focuses so much on Beepers cause that's what made him successful(wouldn't be surprised if he was the first guy to sell them in Hillwood), also he probably still sells some Beepers since they still see some use today
yeah I think everyone agrees that was probably the worst episode in the series, also who else would totally buy a Dino Spumoni album?
With the way things are going, possibly soon. The only few times The Simpsons have been remotely good in the past few years were crossovers. It would probably be for the best if The Simpsons straight up became a crossover show.
>>It was too dark for nick and 'too daria' for MTV
Did Arnold's skylight have shades? Because that thing would fry someone for most of the day.
Daily reminder that if your parents are divorced, they don't love you.
>Parents were high school sweethearts
>Grandparents got married after Grandma got knocked up at 16
>Still together 45 years later
>Still married after 27 years
But Rhonda should still remain as first girl, right?
She's the one that Arnold should have ended up with in the movie
>it's your fault
There are times when I regret telling my dad that one night about how one morning, while my dad was still on his week-long work trips, I found another man in my parent's bed when I forgot my teddy bear in my parent's room.
If I had not have told my father, if I had not made that discovery in the first place, they probably wouldn't have gotten divorced (at least, for a little longer). I wouldn't have moved to Massachusetts instead of sunny California. I wouldn't have endured the nights of my father's depression, anger and emotional scarring rubbing off on me at such a young age. I wouldn't have become a mentally-ill, anti-social shut-in with no aspirations to this day. I wouldn't have ended up here on 4chan for countless hours.
I wouldn't have experienced the worst days of my life living on the east coast, what with all the fights, the beatings, the broken toys, the suicide attempts, and everything else.
Maybe, if I had not told my dad, I would have lived a much different life. A marginally different one at least. But not this one.
Thanks for reminding me, anon. Hey Arnold is the best show.
It's not like she's drawing attention to them by wriggling her toes, or absentmindedly sliding them up and down the bed.
Don't sniff socks, those are disgusting.
Back in 2010 I rewatched this on Netflix a little bit. I really think the Pidgeon homeless person comitted suicide. He just flew into the sunset with his birds. I think he jumped off the building or just went missing and Arnold imagined it as that ending. He was just a homeless person they die all the time. It's not that farfetched.
There was also a shutin/agoraphobic guy renting from their apartments. I think Arnold imagined him as a spy or something. I'm a shut in myself so that's why I noticed it.
There was a lot more I didn't get like the alcoholism. The sad thing is I live in a mostly white christian rural town so I only know about Judaism from Hey Arnold and Rugrats too.
Anon it wasn't your fault that your mom cheated on him. He could have found out so many other ways. As a child you were innocent and didn't understand the gravity of telling him. It may have been the right thing to do. Not telling him he may have found out himself. Seriously your mom was dumb and a whore she didn't even go to a hotel or anything. It's really not your fault.
>Dad was a cheapskate but I was okay with it, because I was also raised a cheapskate
>Tried to get my mom to only spend from the bank account on the essentials their whole marriage
>She went and bought my brothers and I a bunch of shit that we didn't need/want as kids all the time, like 15+ pairs of pants each and other "more important" shit like that that wasn't vidya
>Always told my mom she buys more than we need
>she takes it up the ass, beating mine and telling me to stop being like my dad
>My dad divorced my mom over money
Was it still my fault?
I feel like people forget the Romeo & Juliet class play episode.
>Arnold gets cast as Romeo
>Helga convinces each girl who gets the part of Juliet to step out of it
>Lila gets the part and when Helga goes to convince her to let it go she pretty much goes "I know you like Arnold, so I'll back out of it"
don't worry anon, It's not your fault
it's the devil's
>yfw you realize Big Bob's bopper business tanked by 2001
That makes too much sense. Bob is too stuck in his ways to consider that the cell phones are taking over the market and stubbornly drives himself out of business because he refuses to adapt.
> Bob the Beeper King lost his entire empire after 2001.
Pretty unlikely. The guy was selling cellphones since the beginning of the series as well. He just pushed Beepers because they were his most successful product and he was probably the biggest dealer in the area. (Quite possibly the only dealer when all was said and done. So he might even still be selling them today.)
Helga had a cellphone since the start of the show, if memory serves. I remember her using it around the beginning once or twice. We also see her family has cellphones as well, which honestly weren't that common in the mid-90s.
Ultimately, unless Bob failed to keep up with selling smartphones, he would have done until 2008+, since they still weren't really taking off until then.
Ever been to a hospital? Nearly all doctors still use Beepers because of their low technological impact. Hospital / Medical equipment is tested against beepers and wasn't until not long ago tested against cellphones. Some hospitals still tell people to turn off their cellphones. Also Beepers can't be hacked easily, and are less likely to have problems because they are a single task device. They are still sold, but primarily only to people in the medical field.
For those that are still in the business of beepers (limited as it ever was) this is basically all that's left of their market but there's still enough there to justify it.
>I feel like people forget the Romeo & Juliet class play episode.
when Helga goes to convince her to let it go she pretty much goes "I know you like Arnold, so I'll back out of it"
Hahhhhhhhhhhh.... you're right! Great episode. Before you mentioned that, I don't know what I really saw in Hey Arnold (as a kid) that made me like it so much. It was pretty much mediocre looking back in retrospect but that was a great episode, the buildup, what Helga did, and that line from Lila.
Why do so many people have such a problem with Lila? She's always been depicted as neutral or outright innocent. She tells Arnold several times that she's not attracted to him.
>Imagine how comfy that room would be during a storm.
I'm pretty sure there were a few episodes of Dr. House where he was seen with a beeper too.
lol Are you serious? There's an episode where Helga gets a nanny because her mother had to do community service. Every time she drinks a "smoothy" you hear ice clinking. She uses "tobasco" in her "smoothies". There are multiple times where she forgets to pack Helga's lunch.
If you watched the show, specifically "Helga on the Couch" you learn Helga was emotionally neglected since she was a child, and the only person to ever notice her was Arnold. That's why she loves him, because no one else does. It's a damn shame the Jungle Movie was never made, or else he would have returned her feelings.
>and the only person to ever notice her was Arnold. That's why she loves him, because no one else does. It's a damn shame the Jungle Movie was never made, or else he would have returned her feelings.
that happened to me but in reverse. a girl noticed me then when I wanted to return my feelings and wanted to go out with her, she said no. things don't always work out the way you want them to and there is no indication that would have happened on the jungle movie. it is apk all purely speculation.
To this day I can't handle the sight of a grown man crying. I got choked up watching cops last week.
The thing is, as soon as Helga actually started dating Arnold she'd probably realise they have nothing in common and she's been projecting this idealised perfect version of him which simply does not exist.
it happened to me, I was in Arnold's place
That episode was so good...
It bugs me, though, that the only real "compliment" that Helga got directed at her specifically was a smile on Mr. Simmons' face after he saw she was "not bad"... After all, her performance as Juliet was the most extraordinary point of the play and arguably the sole reason why the play was a success.
>But she did like him but he turned her down I think
No, why would he turn HER down?
Lila liked him but didnt "like him like him". This possibly pissed off lot of kids watching Hey Arnold because she came off as a massive cunt when she said that
However later in the Romeo & Juliet play episode she hints Helga that she knows Helga has feelings for Arnold. So the reason Lila may not really like him like him is because she probably doesnt want to betray/offend Helga in a way
but i dont think people ever saw it that way
In Lila's debut she fell for Arnold and confessed that she liked him, but he turned around and and rejected her. She was devastated (Most likely a problem with rejection), but the next day Arnold realized that he DID like her and went to apologized and tell Lila that he was attracted to her. But in a sadistic fashion Lila rejects Arnold with the same word for word as he did and that made her some what the noble villain.
Please watch the episode Arnold & Lila Season 3 Ep 55a, It was what started the while thing sir...
>I still think she should be shipped with Arnie
Indeed, he would be the perfect punishment for her, and maybe having the others help change the both of them for the better and pairing them up...
Aww, that cute. Your new here aren't you?
>Doesn't know about reaction pics.
>Only divorced people in my family are my grandma and grandpa
I thought she was just lazy as hell. I didn't even have the opportunity to figure it out on my own because I stopped watching the show before I had a good grasp on the real world.
By the time Arnold grows up he'd probably the ruler of the city with all those favors he did for everyone.
Arnold imagined him as a spy cause he was the only boarder who paid rent all the time and knows nothing else about him until the time they went into his room and found out he had the fanciest room out of all the boarders with his own bathroom, and the time they went to his office building.
Eh heh heh heh gets me every time
>tfw his voice actor passed away so we Oskar will never laugh again
Honesty I thought it was implied that they just died in Central America, whether it be plane crash, disease, or whatever have you. The expression on Phil's face at the end of Parent's day isn't too promising either. >>67264680
This anon is right though, they were going to explore this in the jungle movies.
Ayy kid, whats with that fuckin get up
2poor 4 new clothes stupid loser?
that was one of the shittiest episodes ever made.
>According to Craig Bartlett, Lana was meant to have a character role in the series. The writers and Craig initially wanted her to have a crush on Arnold. She would ask him to do favors and would make Arnold feel a little uncomfortable. However, Nickelodeon turned down the concept for obvious reasons so the writers attempted to rewrite her character. In the end, they were not satisfied with any results so they ultimately scrapped her after Season 1.
>Despite this, Lana was used in a few episodes. She appeared in the episode "Dinner for Four" where she's seen being startled by one of the cockroaches, and "Dino Checks Out" in which she attends a DinoMania concert. She is also used in all of the opening credits to the show.
>The writers also made continuity errors when she appeared in the episode "Family Man," apparently still living in the boarding house despite indicating she'd moved out earlier. Though her appearances in the episodes "Helga on the Couch" and "The Journal" were justified as flashbacks.
The source of her potential (and supposed) abuse was never conclusively aimed at anyone. It could have been her deceased mother just as easily. We never learned much about her, and the few times we saw her dad there seemed to be nothing which could serve as even circumstantial evidence.
In general some fans (myself included) find the theory that Lila suffered from psychological abuse which leads to her particular mannerisms of speech unlikely. But I don't rule it out and given the depth of writing in the show in general, the theories posited by other fans are at least half reasonable.

>Monkeyman was a homeless kid with some issues.
he kept saying 'monkey' or 'monkeyman' unexpectedly. there was definitely something going on with him (psychologically). he also sounded (from what I can recall) like Andy Dick but its been a good 10-15 years since I've seen an episode of Hey Arnold.
I knew a girl like Olga when I was in school. Super pretty, amazing top-notch grades, popular, kind, immaculately dressed and made-up, etc. I remember her sobbing uncontrollably with her head on the desk because she got a B- on a minor math homework assignment. Up until that point we were a like "DAMN I want to BE her" and then after that...not so much.
>Over 65% ofthe american population are alcoholics
LOL WHAT AM I READING
So what happened to Arnoldphilshortman? Are all of his past rips kill or did he mirror them somewhere?
Oh and here's the complete Hey Arnold soundtrack I uploaded a while back:
>Over 65% ofthe american population are alcoholics
That's the problem with political correctness gone amok in this country. The same people that quote that statistic are the same ones that constitute "sexual harrisment" as a glance or even a compliment the other party didn't want and some of the more extreme ones would include anything and everything (aside from unwanted non-vaginal or unwanted non-anal penetration) as "rape" which is so fucking pathetic. Everyone is a victim now and there's too much MUH FEELINGS! or MUH RIGHTS! or MUH SENSITIVITY!
Someone I know is weak willed and claims that they are an alcoholic and the funny thing is everyone else knows this person just doesn't believe in themself and is naive but they keep saying how they have "no willpower" which is the lie those AA meetings have them hooked on; they've also traded "addiction" to alcohol for addictions to meetings with bad coffee and smoking cigarettes in church basements, hanging out with losers, and support groups that keep telling them they're powerless and they need to subjugate themselves to religion. It's terrible. They also tried slyly putting their AA pamphlets where I would be able to find them (like putting one on top of my keys or sticking a pamphlet in the slit of my car door and their definition of "being an alcoholic" is so batshit crazy that pretty much anyone who has ever tried alcohol once in their lives is 'in serious danger of becoming a full blown alcoholic and needs to come to meetings' its terrible.
>18 and over
>drinking age is 20 to 22
>they filled their data with people who aren't part of the data at all. Most kids said no just to be sure the poll wasn't a honeypot.
That data is false.
I've since yelled at the person for dumping the pamphlets on me and lying that they didn't know what I was talking about when I called them out on trying to bombard me with them and it's been 2 years since but look up 'AA pamphlets' on a search and you'll probably find the one I always remember finding on my car or conveniently placed where I would find them and have to read them...
There's one in particular that is colored yellow and has the headline 'A Quiz...' and it asks if any of the following 10-15 statements apply to you (and they're all rigged do everyone will automatically fail it/there is no way to pass) such as:
-have you ever drank on the weekends
-have you ever drank alone
-have you ever had or combined beer with liquor and/or wine on the same drinking session
-have you ever had more than one alcoholic drink in one sitting
There's some other bizarre ones there but I remember seeing those and thought 'by their standards, EVERYONE in college or highschool is a fucking alcoholic!!'
Here, this isn't the one I kept getting given to me but the questions and format of this pamphlet are more or less the same one that I kept getting and note the fact where it says 'if you answer yes to even ONE of the questions', you're in deep shit: http://www.abbotsfordaa.org/take-the-quiz.html
(#6 is fucking hilarious considering most dates involve drinking alcohol at some point anyways)
Hit the nail on the head. I heard that statistic about half of women being raped in their lifetime as well. Crazy bastards.
>support groups that keep telling them they're powerless and they need to subjugate themselves
Yep, that's pretty much how they act. This is a great read:
Here's a fragment on that age group:
Young Adult Drinking—Research shows that people are most likely to drink the heaviest in their late teens and early twenties (11). In 2001–2002, about 70 percent of young adults, or about 19 million people, reported drinking in the year preceding this survey (12). NESARC data are helping to better define drinking among young adults. For example, Do college students drink more than their noncollege student peers? To answer this question, Dawson and colleagues (13) used NESARC data to estimate rates of heavy episodic (or binge2) drinking, alcohol abuse, and alcohol dependence among adults ages 18–29.
The researchers then looked at the relationship of these rates to student status and residence. They found that although rates of heavy episodic drinking were slightly higher for college students than for noncollege students, the greatest differences were related to where those young adults lived. For example, about a third of both college students and other college-age youth who lived with their parents or other relatives reported heavy episodic drinking in the past year. In contrast, 46.5 percent of college students living off campus and 51.8 of those living on campus reported heavy episodic drinking, as did 40 percent of other college-age youth living independently. The authors conclude that heavy episodic drinking and AUDs are common among all young adults, not just those attending college.
You only have three sentences in your post, but all three of them manage to be have no logical relation to any other sentence in your post.
In addition to 2/3 of them being dead wrong.
I'm getting tired of people shitting on AA because they're just parroting shit Seth McFarland and South Park said about addiction not being real.
AA saved my Dad's life. And he's fucking happy with where he is in life now because of it. He hasn't even gone to a meeting in years, and he's not anti-alcohol. Ever since he stopped drinking his life has gotten infinitely better.
Both family guy and South Park had episodes bashing AA that heavily implied that addiction isn't real. And that everyone is more than capable of "cutting back" on substance abuse, and shouldn't need anyone's help to do it.
Such sultry young girls in this show, I swear.
>she wanted to go skinny dipping
So I didn't watch this show as a kid, but I've been hearing about how good it was lately. I might give it a watch. I just have one question. What's up with the release dates for the last season?
My mom suffered from chronic migraines when I was growing up, so at least once a week she'd be ill and tired, so I just assumed Mariam was sick all the time
Also yes, my parents were a dry family and I never saw anyone drink alcohol until I was 10
>watching that episode somehow made the Vietnam war even more sad
Arnold's reaction here was just dumb. Great fucking tell you tumor headed chump.
You know there's one episode that does legit make me rage when I think about it. Recall the one where Stinky became a commercial advertiser for Yahoo soda and was a big success? Life was finally going right for that poor fuck and his equally poor father (they lived in a fucking cabin in the middle of a city ffs).
Then he finds out the director thinks he's dumb. Overhears a conversation about people thinking a shallow-speaking country nugget is, surprise, an uneducated pleb. Surprise, Stink gets angry.
The next day they're offering him a $1mil contract, and you know what he does? He refuses. His father, who probably has worked a long and painful life to scrape together an existence to keep his son alive, is begging him to sign the contract. Stinky won't sign it because why? LOL I'M NOT A FOOL
It infuriates me so much, especially how the show tried to process this as a 'good' thing. Who fucking cares what some schmuck thinks of you? Because of some idiotic inbred pride, he refuses, returning to a life of stupidity and poverty.
Unconditional anger, I hate that retarded big nosed fuck.
Realistcally, its called keeping the status quo, which is why cartoons and tv shows are shit at actual character development. any event or action which could change the character is shot down in 23 minutes.
Then the writers say "its not about money!! stinky is right!!"
Then real life people says "why the fuck would a hick poor boy turn down 1mil"
They aired those episodes once in a blue moon in between months of hiatuses. I think some of those episodes were presented by Nick as "special" episodes to excuse themselves. Obviously it definitely wasn't the Hey Arnold production team's fault as they weren't in charge of scheduling air dates. Basically, the show was "cancelled" a few years before the last few episodes aired.
One of the most important experiences of my life was when my gradeschool crush and I almost hooked up. I came back from college for break, met up with him at a neighbor's block party. We got really close, but then. Sex problems. I couldn't perform. And then he told me it was for the best, he had a girlfriend.
I always identified with Helga as a kid. Weird girl with a fucked up family who gets waaaay too attached to someone who was nice to her. And getting the guy, the one I thought would never ever look at me, that was magic. Even though it turned out kind of shitty, it was amazing. And I learned that the guy I idealized was just a regular person after all.
It was weird and awkward and shameful, but also one of the best things that ever happened.
>Overhears a conversation about people thinking a shallow-speaking country nugget is, surprise, an uneducated pleb.
Wasn't Stinky quite well-spoken? Sure, he had that country slang going but it didn't seem to me like he was dumb and uneducated. Oh well.
I know where you're coming from, denying 1 million Dollars is not exactly great and I guess he should've just swallowed his pride for the well-being of his family but it also showed that you shouldn't let others belittle you and that you should stick to your principles which very few people do nowadays
>mfw both parents mixed booze and pain killers
>mfw when this show made me feel like I wasn't the only person with this problem
It wasn't a good episode, but I always just rolled with it as a kid. It seemed like it was being overly exaggerated like that go cart episode. It was supposed to seem big to the kids because they had such a limited view of the world.
