Headless Cabbie is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.


During a sleepover, Arnold tells the legend of the Headless Cabbie to Gerald, Sid, Stinky, and Harold. A hundred years ago, a cabbie was driving his carriage through the park when a mysterious lady stopped him and asked him to find her lost Scotty dog. She offers her scarf to the Cabbie who accepts.

As they chase the dog through the park, they come across a man with a golden hook for an arm who just misses them. As the chase continues, the woman grows more and more demonic and as they pass under a low branch, the Cabbie's scarf wraps around it and decapitates him, thus turning him into the Headless Cabbie who now haunts the park on some autumn nights.

The other kids don't believe Arnold's story until they decide to go into the park to find out. They come across the same Scotty dog from the story as well as the man with a golden hook for an arm (who in actuallity, is just a watch salesman). Eventually they come face-to-no-face with the Headless Cabbie and the horrible Ghost Lady themselves, who turn out to be just Ernie and Mr Hyunh

The kids are brought back home and Ernie is just about to take off when he's stopped by a mysterious lady asking him to find her dog.


  • The Headless Cabbie is a reference to the Headless Horseman from the Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
  • The Tale of Monkey Cat is a reference to the deleted infamous scene from the 1986 film The Fly where the main character makes a baboon and a cat fuse together, which then attacks him before he killed the hybrid animal with a metal pipe.
  • Eugene takes clog-dancing lessons.


  • Gerald's shirt collar always changes from white to red.
  • Harold's sleeping bag turned from red to green, disappeared, and then keeps changing colors between green and red.
