Vincent, better known as "Pigeon Man", is a fictional character from the Hey Arnold! TV Series.


The subject of urban legends throughout Hillwood, "Pigeon Man" is an outcast who prefers to be around pigeons than with the people of the city. Although now he is an outcast, Pigeon Man is a man once known as Vincent, who as a child had a passion for taking care of pigeons. While he had friends during his childhood, and even went to PS 118, Vincent's past time eventually alienated him from society, and in turn he shut himself out from the objections and scrutiny of the world outside.

When Arnold comes to Pigeon Man to nurse his pigeon Chester back to good health, Arnold decides to bond with Vincent to dispel the rumors that surround him. During the time spent together, Vincent reveals had the same 4th grade teacher as Arnold, Miss Slovak, and that he also enjoys pizza, and was introduced to pineapple on pizza by Arnold.

After a nasty attempt to prank him by Harold Stinky and Joey destroyed his home and dejected by their cruelty, he decided to find somewhere else to live. Calling his pigeons, he had them all latch onto hooked cords on his coat and lifted him up, letting him fly. As he left he told Arnold how to take care of his pet pigeons, and hoped wherever he ends up, there will be someone like Arnold.

In The Jungle Movie, it is revealed in a tribute documentary to Arnold that shortly after he left Hillwood, he and his pigeons decided to wander the world. One of the places he resided at was the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, France, where Helga interviewed him, and personally thanked Arnold for helping open his eyes and heart again to the world outside. This is a reference to a comic story where Gerald mentions his whereabouts.
