Ronnie Matthews is a fictional character in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.


Ronnie is a handsome pop singer whom was said to be the "voice of the generation". In reality, he is a lip-synching faker with a manufactured image. His motivation for his role as a pop singer is only to gain the fame and money that comes with the job.

In the episode "Preteen Scream," Ronnie Matthews first appears to be an ideal model. However, when Phoebe wins a contest to meet him after one of his concerts, she discovers he actually has no musical talent, and that he does not write or compose any of the songs he sings, and lip syncs his performances. He also has a thick Spanish accent and mispronounces Phoebe's and Helga's names as PHOH-bi and EL-ga, respectively.


  • His appearance is similar to that of the late Prince (both of them are also guitarists) and his music style is similar to that of Boy George, but his lip-synching and stardom in fake standing draws greater similarities to the controversies over pop group Milli Vanilli and Frank Farian. His name and accent might be a parody of Ricky Martin.
