Abner Come Home is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.


Arnold's pet pig Abner runs away, and Arnold lures him back with Abner's favorite thing: garbage.


  • The phone number on the "Have You Seen This Pig" billboard is "555-PORK".
  • On Abner's doghouse, the "E" in "Abner" is backwards.
  • We learn that Arnold has a great-uncle who is also named Phil. However, it is uncertain whether this Phil is related to Arnold's Grandpa or Grandma.
  • The credits list Maurice LaMarche, the voice of Big Bob, as Abner. This is one of very few cartoons where Frank Welker doesn't do the animal voices. He also didn't voice Chester in the episode, "Pigeon Man".
  • This episode aired the same day that Bill Clinton was inaugurated for his second term as President of the United States.
  • It is revealed that there are two different characters with the same name called Abner. One is Arnold's pig and the other is a male human.
  • The construction worker is seen smoking a cigar in this episode despite Nickelodeon's policy against references to tobacco in their shows.
