“Hey Arnold: The (live action) Movie”

Little over a year ago we posted an live action parody of Nickelodeon’s Doug. NYC Comedy trio, DrCoolSex, are back with another Nicktoon update: Hey Arnold, the Movie!

(Thanks, Roberto Severino)

    This is how the 2002 movie SHOULD’VE been like! I wonder how these guys would handle the sequel that never happened…

  • God…..why.

    Wow…. That was dumb.

    • Superstarseven

      Fantastic non-sense of humor you have.

    Effective use of Stoop Kid! Yay!

    Another movie, and we STILL don’t know what arnold’s last name is!

    • Crystal

      On the Gravestone, it mentioned the supposed surname of “Shortman” which the creator jokingly(?) said it is.

      The thing is, whenever these trailers or theories/analyses come out, people say stuff like “Oh! My childhood’s been raped!” but I’ve seen so many of those at this point, it really has no affect on me–I don’t find it shocking at all at this point.

      I thought the fans actually liked Helga&Arnold better than Lila . . .

    So….basically all these fake live action adaptions of Nick cartoon trailers involve being as a horror or thriller like that Rugrats trailer a while back? Like I said if someone did a fake trailer for a live action Ren and Stimpy, it’d be beyond what I just saw. Infact, it’d be too disturbing and intense.

    • Julian

      I’m just wondering how you’d even do a live action Ren and Stimpy.

  • Ricky

    No football head, no buy.

    I see that the actors are quite ecstatic in the trailers main picture.

  • Mister Twister

    Wow… epic?

    The Stoop Kid part was the best. This is truly made by fans of the show.

    I quite liked the original cartoon. It was laid back and jazzy in an era of sugar-high Ren+Stimpy knock-offs, 80s leftovers, and bad cgi animation.

    There’s not really enough about this parody/tribute to evoke the cartoon, either musically or visually, and they took a fairly predictable angle. While not exactly awful, it’s unoriginal and unsurprising.

    In actuality, Helga was the most interesting conflicted character, really the star of the show.

      I somewhat agree. I thought some of the use of the characters was clever in this parody, but if they were more serious about it as a tribute it would be more interesting.

      The show certainly had enough jazzy and independent sensibilities that I am sure a live action film would jive pretty well with current hipster, nostalgic, youth.

    This brought back memories. I loved Hey Arnold it was one of the main reasons I got into cartooning and animation and had some of the best character development in western animation. I liked this live action short but for me it was somewhat lacking the vibe of the original cartoon. Speaking of the cartoon I really want that damn Jungle Movie.
