ARNOLD AND HELGA

Question

In the Jungle Movie, are Helga and Arnold really awkward around each other until he tells her how he feels about her in the end? Or do they act the way they usually do in the series all throughout the movie?

Craig Bartlett

They act the way they always do -- she's putting up her front again.

Question

The April Fools Day episode was made way after the first movie, but does it mean that it happened after the movie chronologically? I found that a lot of the characters (mainly Helga and Arnold) were a bit OOC in it so i was just wondering.

Craig Bartlett

We wrote it after the Arnold Movie, so to us, it was afterward.

Question

Does Arnold go back to his old life after the Jungle Movie or does he stay with his parents?

Craig Bartlett

We never decided! If we had made the Jungle movie and then more episodes, it would have been the first thing to figure out.

Question

Is it only Gerald who finds out about Arnold and Helga, or do the rest of the people find out as well?

Craig Bartlett

By that point, most people would have to notice. The kids would start teasing them about it, I guess.

Question

How does Arnold confront Helga about his feelings for her? Is it going to be dramatic like the way she confessed to him in the first movie? Or will it be after the movie's climax, where everything's sort of okay already? Does he go about it just as passionately as Helga did? (I REALLY want to know this one, haha!)

Craig Bartlett

It was definitely a big scene. But he's not as "passionate" as Helga.

Question

Does Arnold give Helga a long kiss? Or is it short and sweet?

Craig Bartlett

It was short and sweet -- they were in a hurry, as usual.

THE PATAKIS

Question

How does Helga look like when she's 15? Does she still have the pigtails? Does she still wear her pink bow and pink dress? Did she get rid of her unibrow?

Craig Bartlett

She dressed more tough -- wore a grungy cap over her bow. Same monobrow.

Question

Does the series also show what Arnold looks like at 15? If so, does he look the same, only taller? Did his hairstyle change in any way?

Craig Bartlett

We never got to that. All we had decided was that he'd moved away.

Question

Do other Hey Arnold characters appear in the show? Like Gerald, Harold, Sid or Stinky? What about Lila, Phoebe and Rhonda?

Craig Bartlett

Everybody would have been in it.

Question

How old was Helga when Arnold moved away?

Craig Bartlett

They're fifteen in the show, and we hadn't decided yet when he moved. Recently, I suppose...

Question

Are Helga and Arnold a couple in the series?

Craig Bartlett

Nope, they're broken up.


OTHER CHARACTERS

Question

I've always been fond of the whole Rhonda/Harold as well as the Rhonda/Curly pairing. Will she end up with either of them? If so, which one? And which pairing do you prefer?

Craig Bartlett

I think Rhonda would end up with Harold. Curly's too weird for a relationship, especially with someone as high-maintenance as Rhonda.

Question

Do Phoebe and Gerald have a thing for each other? (I know this question was kinda stupid, but I just wanted to know for sure XD)

Craig Bartlett

Oh yeah.

Question

Did Arnold's crush on Lila really end in the episode Timberly loves Arnold?

Craig Bartlett

That was it, as far as I was concerned. I wanted to finish his infatuation with Lila in time for the movies.

Question

Is there really no hope for the Jungle Movie? I mean, it doesn't have to be a movie, but will we ever know what really happens?

Craig Bartlett

I don't know. Nick owns the scripts and the rights to the characters, so I'd have to do any further version of it with them, and they are not interested in HA! very much right now.

Question

What happened to Ernie and Lola?

Craig Bartlett

Good question! We never planned anything more...

Question

Does Grandpa know about Helga's love for Arnold?

Craig Bartlett

Oh yeah. He's seen enough to know what she's up to.

Question

Is Lila really Little Miss Perfect? Or does she have some deep dark secret that no one knows about? Is she evil?

Craig Bartlett

I don't think she's evil -- she means well. But she does have a deeply suppressed dark side.

Question

What's your favorite Hey Arnold! episode? In terms of touching episodes, mine would be Pigeon Man and Arnold's Thanksgiving. If it's for the Helga-centered ones, I really liked Helga on the Couch. I also liked the What's Opera, Arnold? episode a lot. I just want to know which ones you liked the most as well. :)

Craig Bartlett

Those are all favorites of mine. I also like the two parents eps, Parents Day and the Journal. I like April Fools, the Parrot, Monkey Business, Mr. Hyunh goes Country, School Play, Eugene Eugene, Partners, all the musical ones.
