Oh man, where to start with Helga. So first of all her family is the definition of dysfunctional. Her dad is a bully and a control freak, her mom is an alcoholic (context clues) who is pretty neglectful and they both love Helga’s older, brilliant sister, Olga, more than Helga. She clearly doesn’t know how to handle emotions properly since she can’t help but lash out and deride people she loves, like Arnold and sometimes even her bestie Phoebe. Even when her parents show her some love, it is so short lived. No wonder Helga’s so grouchy all the time.
This is arguably the saddest moment of the series.
The last episode of Hey Arnold was a special one-hour episode where we finally learned what happened to his parents. To make a sad story short: his father was a scientist/doctor and his mother was a doctor/botanist. The two traveled the world, eventually meeting and falling in love. When in San Lorenzo, they ‘met’ a mysterious tribe called The Green Eyed People. The Green Eyes became infected by a disease and the two helped create a cure. A few years after Arnold was born, their friend informed them that the disease had returned as a severe epidemic; the tribe was being wiped out. Although it pained them, Miles and Stella agreed to go on one final trip. It was the last time that Arnold and his grandparents ever saw them.
Cara + Helga = Eyebrows

When Big Bob’s Beepers goes out of business,…
Helga On The Couch
I’m not crying, you’re crying!
When Utah residents saw 22-year-old Darrien Hunt carrying a toy sword, they called police who shot and killed him. But when 22-year-old Joseph Kelley carried an assault rifle to a JC Penney store in Utah, he walked out without a scratch on his body. They were both the same age. Both in the same state. But only one was considered “suspicious.” And you still believe America is color blind?
