Hookey is an episode of Hey Arnold!.


Arnold and Gerald decide to skip school to have a good time, but they're so busy trying not to get caught that they have a terrible time. But it turns out there was a fun party at school.



  • Arnold and Gerald's lockers don't have padlocks, like most of the others do.
  • Arnold can imitate his grandfather's voice remarkably well.
  • Principal Wartz played hockey in the past, and had a chance to go pro if it were not for an accident in which he lost his toe in a wheat thresher.
  • When Arnold and Gerald are in House of Costumes, Gerald comments about being a "free man in Paris, unfettered and alive," and that he heard it on a hippie record. That album is Joni Mitchell's 1974 album "Court and Spark." The song he is quoting is "Free Man in Paris."
  • The episode's title is misspelled on the Hey Arnold! The Complete Series DVD as "Hooky". However, the word can be spelled either way.
  • This episode spoofs "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
  • The titular Buddy Love from "Buddy Love Goes Coconuts" is named after the alter ego of Julius Kelp and Sherman Klump from "The Nutty Professor" and its 1996 remake.


  • The clock in the police station looks like it says it's after 5:00pm, but school is still in session when Arnold and Gerald return.
  • When Gerald and Arnold are caught by the police, the letters on the sidewalk read LOAING ZONE, as opposed to LOADING ZONE.
