  • Explaination of some themes in the series
  • Reviews of selected fanmade works
  • Ideas for 6th season episodes

In general, the contents of this site are to help fans gain a better understanding of the cartoon, so that they are able to improve themselves as fan-artists, ect. to produce “Hey Arnold!” fanworks.  Of course, don’t let its contents bog down or restrict your creativity!  We like creativity!

  1. I think this is a really great site so far and I’ll definitely be checking back for updates! My only little crit so far is to maybe try and give the other characters/relationships some insight? I love Helga and Arnold with all my heart (and they do deserve a lot of the spotlight), but there’s more to the show than just them.

    But, yeah – keep it up! :3

  2. Loving the site so far, I do agree with Squirreltamer though, a little more variety would be wonderful. Of course we all know HxA is awesome.

    Keep it up and I look forward to your updates!
