Hey Arnold! The Complete Series
Available NOW only at Wal-Mart
I made my husband's day this past weekend, when I surprised him with the "Hey Arnold: The Complete Series" DVD set which hit Walmart store shelves yesterday. Back when we were dating, he would ask me to record this animated series, which he used to watch with his little brother growing up, so he could watch after work. I always wondered why he liked this show, especially as a grown adult. But, after sitting down to watch a few episodes with him, I could see why he and so many other kids and adults would tune in to watch Hey Arnold! when it aired on Nickelodeon.
And, now, my husband has the complete series, thanks to the folks at Shout Factory! to watch whenever he wants. :-) This past weekend, while I found myself with "me time" to watch the online canning demos I streamed from my site from Ball Brands, as my husband and girls were snuggling on the couch watching a few Hey Arnold! episodes.
By the time the second episode ended, both Savannah and Bella were hooked, and asked for more Hey Arnold! :-) And, my husband was not going to say "no" as he was enjoying watching one of his favorite shows of yesterday, now with his girls by his side, enjoying it along with him.
This animated series, which originally aired on Nickelodeon ran from 2000-2004 and instantly became a cult classic animated series. My husband is not alone in loving this television series, as he met a few die hard Hey Arnold! fans who dressed up as Arnold and Harold and walked around the Hartford Comic Con a few months ago. And, now with the release of the complete series, I can see many Hey Arnold! fans already adding this 16-DVD set to their holiday wish lists. With over 38 hours of programming (all 99 full-length episodes), fans of this cult classic will be heaven as they watch Harold and friends and their big-city adventures over and over again, reliving your childhood memories and making new ones with your children right by your side. :-)
