If there’s one thing on this earth I live for, it’s cartoon pilots. I can’t remember if I’ve seen this or not. I swear I did, but the whole second half seemed new to me. It’s possible I’m just remembering the version they made into an actual episode for the full show. But I love how much more cartoony this is, and how much more fun Arnold is as a character. Both of those things were really lost as the series went on, it’s a shame.
Favorite. Craig’s aesthetic and style really shone through the pilot and the colors are wacky and super beautiful. Huge props to Carol Wyatt for the colors and being a huge part of creating the whole Hey Arnold universe!! I really wish they kept this feel throughout the series as much as I love how everything is. The Pilot has to be my favorite "episode".
Is this the one they showed before the Harriet the Spy movie in theaters? Because I think this may be the version I saw, then.
This version was released in theaters and did show before Harriet the Spy! So, technically this was released.
