Sid the Vampire Slayer is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.
After watching a horror film, Sid notices that Stinky has the attributes of being a vampire.
The episode opens with Arnold, Sid and Stinky watching a vampire movie at the movie theater. After they leave the theater, Sid becomes paranoid and scared of vampires. Stinky then pretends that he's a vampire and frightens Sid. Sid is then told by Arnold and Stinky that vampires aren't real before he heads to his house. That night Sid has a nightmare where he's chased by Stinky as a vampire which ends with Stinky biting him in the neck.
The next day at school, Sid begins to notice "strange" things with Stinky such as him wearing sunglasses, turning down garlic bread at lunch and him being interested in a blood drive, causing Sid to be convinced that he is a vampire. He tries to tell Arnold about Stinky being a vampire, but he does not believe him.
Sid later checks out a book from the library about vampires and finds out that vampires have no reflection. He then takes a picture of Stinky (who bends down), Sid then shows Arnold the picture but Arnold does not believe him. He later steals Stinky's sandwich and believes that he found fang marks however, Arnold still does not believe him.
Later that night, Sid sneaks onto Stinky's property, Stinky then hides the window curtains and a bat flies down from Stinky's bedroom towards Sid. He then brings the bat (thinking it's Stinky) to school the next day in a cage to show Arnold. Arnold then releases the bat from its cage, causing Sid to freak out.
