Craig Bartlett Hints At "Hey Arnold!" Reboot

During a recent interview with The Arun Mehta Show Christmas Special, Craig Bartlett, the creator of the popular Classic Nickelodeon original animated series (Nicktoon) "Hey Arnold!", has announced the fantastic news that he is currently working with Nickelodeon to work out the best way in which they can reboot the series so that it can keep going in the future!:

In the interview, Craig reveals that work on a "Hey Arnold!" reboot is going great, and that he expects more news to be announced soon.

Craig also acknowledges that today's generation of kids have different tastes than children in the 1990's, and that the show may have to adapt for today's audiences, however, he'll do his best to keep the main storyline as close to the original Nickelodeon series as he can - what it's like being a kid and a good person in a messed up world.

"Hey Arnold!" centers on a football headed fourth grader named Arnold, who lives with his grandparents in a boarding house under a freeway. Each episode centers on his experiences navigating big city life while dealing with the problems he and his friends encounter, from bullies, lost baseballs, a pig named Abner, and a tough girl named Helga who constantly teases him but secretly writes poems about him. Sound bad? Not for Arnold. His neighborhood is the only place he ever wants to be.

The series came to life after Craig created various versions of the football-headed hero. First came an "Arnold" comic strip for "Simpsons Illustrated", then a claymation version for "Pee-wee's Playhouse". As the character and world emerged in a whole new way, Craig animated the first episode of "Hey Arnold!" in his living room, and then pitched it to Nickelodeon.
