Kid shows just aren’t what they used to be. Everything is so damn educational now. What happened to fun? Sure, I agree that the TV can be used for educational purposes, but crimenetlies! I’m just tired of all these people acting like TV was so bad. We all turned out alright. And the truth is that TV is meant for entertainment. The beauty of being a kid is that you’re not forced to learn all day, and you’re not forced to work all day. Sometimes, you just want to sit back and watch TV.
And let’s be honest–what adult doesn’t have some silly indulgence, be it a reality show or some other nonsense. I love love LOVE the Real Housewives of New Jersey, but darnit, I know I’m not learning a thing from it.
So today, we rejoice in Hey Arnold!, and all it’s glorious characters. From football-shaped heads, to unibrow girls in pink dresses, this is for you, Hey Arnold!
Below I have included an 11:00min clip (calm down! it’s a damn cartoon-enjoy it) which culminates in that glorious episode in which Stoop Kid is afraid to leave his Stoop. You will be chanting it in your head the rest of the day.
