Benchwarmer is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.

Summary

Arnold, Gerald, Stinky, and Robert are on the YMMA's basketball team, and Coach Wittenberg teaches the team to always pass the ball to his son Tucker. Arnold teaches Tucker how to do free-throw shots, only to find he still hogs all the credit.

Trivia

  • James Belushi, who voices Simon on Aaahh! Real Monsters, is the voice of Coach Wittenberg.
  • The players on Arnold's team are Tucker, Gerald, Stinky, "Robert" (blonde kid with the glasses that appears in other episodes, usually in a green shirt), Lamar, Frankie, and Ravi.
  • Grandpa wanted to join the circus as a kid, as a trapeze artist. Instead, the only circus job he had was cleaning up after the elephants for 13 years.
  • This episode aired almost a month after the basketball movie Space Jam, starring Michael Jordan, was released in theaters.
  • YMMA could be a reference to the world organization YMCA

Goofs

  • There is a rule that prevents players from wearing hats in basketball, so Arnold shouldn't be allowed to wear his during a game.
  • The names for the Green and Yellow teams' players are the same.
  • The players are listed by first name on the scoreboard, and their numbers aren't listed, so there's no way of telling which player is which.
  • No credit is given to the boy who claims Tucker is faking his injury.
