Hey Arnold!

Longest Monday / Eugene's Pet - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In "Longest Monday" at one point in the episode, Arnold and Gerald run off of a bus and down an alley. Two fifth graders come chasing after them. In the next scene, you see Arnold and Gerald hiding in the sewer under the 5th graders. Arnold then crawls through a very narrow tube, and Gerald follows. You then see the end of the tube and Gerald come out of the it first, and Arnold climbs out last. It would be impossible for Arnold and Gerald to switch places inside the tube because it was way too narrow.

Show generally

Audio problem: Right after Helga is standing behind the "ARNOLD" on the pavement, when she says "Hey Arnold", her lips move as if she's saying it slowly (this is fixed in the 4th season).

Continuity mistake: When the four boys form their line (just before the adults call out "Arnold"), watch Harold's tooth; it goes from the right side of his mouth (as you look at him) to his left side.

Other mistake: In the closed-captioning, when Arnold and Gerald "touch thumbs" (and you hear that "sproing" sound), the caption says "[glass shatters]"

Abner Come Home / The Sewer King - S1-E16

Audio problem: When Arnold is playing chess with the Sewer King, Arnold jumps across the table and knocks the King over. This sequence appears to be sped up: the toilet crashes way after it is destroyed, and the King says "Noooooooooooo," yet his mouth never moves.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The first time you see the line of girls, Rhonda's shoes are "low-cut", but just before Helga says "Move it, football head", the shoes suddenly extend much higher (like they normally do in the stories).

The List/Haunted Train - S1-E8

Question: Why did that boy steal Arnold's ball? Was that the whole reason he came to the park? He seemed awfully obnoxious and destined to ruin Arnold's day, just wanting more clarity. Thank you.

Answer: The episode doesn't really elaborate on who the kid was and what his motives were, so its pure speculation as to why he took it. Perhaps the kid could simply want a ball all for himself and decided to just take it, or was simply a rotten kid. The truth is the kid's motives are not important to the story other than it highlights Arnold was having a lot of trouble getting through the list.
