Big Gino is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.


After selling candy from Gino to get money for a rocking horse without paying back, Sid becomes a member of Big Gino's group, which happens to be an elementary school version of the Italian Mafia. Arnold says that Sid and Gino are not friends and Gino heard that. After everything Gino has done for Sid, when Gino orders him to give Arnold a swirlie, Sid has to decide who his real friend is.



  • During one scene in Big Gino's office, the Dino Spumoni song My Last Bow can be heard playing in the background, perhaps referencing the urban legend that Frank Sinatra and other Rat Pack members had Mafia connections.
  • Sid wakes up to find his wooden pony's head in his bed, a reference to the infamous scene in the movie The Godfather where a character wakes up to find his horse's severed head in his bed.
  • After Sid avoids Big Gino's calls, the doorframe above his says "Cogit Ergo Sum". This is a flawed Latin translation of Rene Descartes' famous quote "I think; therefore I am." It should be "Cogito Ergo Sum."
