Tour de Pond is an episode of Hey Arnold!.


Arnold and Gerald enter the Tour De Pond boat race, and face competition with Rex Smythe-Higgins III, whose family has won ever since Rex's grandfather cheated and beat Arnold's Grandpa 70 years ago.



  • Prior this episode, Rex Smythe-Higgins III has won the Tour de Pond competition 4 years in a row.
  • Grandpa and Rex Smythe Higgins have another confrontation in the episode "The Pig War".
  • The episode title could be a reference to popular bicycle race Tour de France, an annual bicycle race since 1903.
  • The race is being sponsered by the "Hobby Hut" this could be a reference to retail arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby.
  • The Smythe-Higgins own the town park.


  • In maritime terminology: The S.S. prefix in ship names stands for "Steam Ship". So technically, Grandpa putting "S.S." in his sailing ship's name is inaccurate.
