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




Torvald is thirteen years old and the oldest student of P.S. 118's fourth grade class. Because Harold is also thirteen, it can be assumed that Torvald is older by only a few months. He is good at being a fourth grader and has been doing it for the past three or four years (it beats joining his friends in Juvenile Hall). He is also one of the most feared students in the school, being a part-time bully and problem child. While not shown very often in the series, he is revealed to have a good heart; he cherishes his mother dearly, and would never want to do anything to hurt her, even reputation wise and emotionally (Big Gino). Due to his absence later on in the series, it is likely that Torvald was able to improve his grades and eventually pass the fourth grade.

Miss Slovak assigned Arnold his "study buddy" in the episode Tutoring Torvald. Although he is shown to be bad at remedial math, Torvald is able to exhibit his intelligence while stealing money from his victims (he actually thought it was just "business" the whole time). In Mudbowl, he's on Arnold's football team as a secret weapon; however, he sprains his ankle during a running play and is out for the remainder of the game, cheering on the sidelines.

Torvald's address: 86th Street, 4040 (Tutoring Torvald)
