Created by Craig Bartlett as a comic in 1986, Hey Arnold! debuted as an animated short for the Nickelodeon film Harriet the Spy in 1996. It then went on to air on Nickelodeon from 1996 to 2001, subsequently airing on "Nick on CBS" from 2002 until 2004. Now, for the first time, the long anticipated Hey Arnold!: Season One (4-disc set) is available in stores.
Featuring all 20 hilarious episodes, Hey Arnold!: Season One follows the adventures of Arnold, the original football-headed boy’s life in the big city alongside his Grandpa, Grandma, Abner the pig and a host of other friends and neighbors. Each episode finds Arnold in a new, sticky situation, whether it’s helping out a schoolmate with their problems or dealing with his own. Unfortunately, Arnold’s predicaments are often started by Helga, a schoolmate who picks on Arnold and constantly bullies him. However, Helga only pretends to dislike Arnold to hide the fact that she is secretly in love with him!

One thing - the dvd doesn't have captions. Not a biggie if you don't use them, but I do use them and their lack make the viewing experience a bit harder for me. Also, there are no extras in this dvd set, which is again not a biggie if you watch them only once for curiosity sake.
Otherwise, it looks and sounds great.
