DVD Review – Hey Arnold!: The Ultimate Collection

Red Stewart reviews Hey Arnold!: The Ultimate Collection…

To revisit Hey Arnold! after all these years was to go back to an era of my life I hold dear: my childhood. I have very fond memories of watching the TV guide scroll on Channel 0 of my family’s old television, waiting for it to get to certain channels to see if my favorite cartoons were airing, and Hey Arnold! was one of those. There was just something about the aesthetic of the show that made it stand out. Perhaps it was the unique structural features of the characters, the murky color palette of Hillwood, or the funky Jazz tune of the theme song. But even more important were the storylines: it was like creator Craig Bartlett and his team of writers took the slice-of-life template pioneered by works like Peanuts and deconstructed it for the kids who were growing up in the real-world.

Emily S. Whitten: Nickelodeon and Nostalgia @ Sdcc 2016

  • Comicmix
As you undoubtedly know, San Diego’s Comic-Con International happened this past weekend, and I was fortunate to be amongst the tens of thousands of attendees. There was, as always, a mega-ton to see and do, and it was hard to keep the Fomo (Fear Of Missing Out) from getting completely out of control over the 4.5 days of the con. To stay sane, though, at some point you just have to accept that you’re going to miss a bunch, and focus on what you do have the opportunity to see.

This year, one of my main interests was what Nickelodeon was showcasing. Of course, Nickelodeon is always on my radar, and particularly the current Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, which I adore. But even beyond the coolness that is the Tmnt, this year, Nickelodeon was focusing on its past – in the best way possible. Through its late-night programming block of “The Splat,
