It's really no secret, but among the animated series that I spent my adolescent years watching Hey Arnold stands out as my favorite.

Much as I loved Rocko's Modern Life, Doug, AAAAAH! Real Monsters, and the other greats from the early-to-mid 90s, they were never able to speak to me the same way Arnold did. It may have something to do with how much more real the show was, how you could legitimately see a kid having to deal with a lot of the problems that plagued Arnold's neighborhood, but I really connected to Mr. Simmon's class.

Of course, once you watch the show as an adult you begin to appreciate the writing a bit more. There's a lot of darkness in the those kid's lives, it can really be pretty sad behind the happy-go-lucky exterior, but that really just adds a sort of depth you wouldn't otherwise have gotten.

It's definitely one of the better written 90s cartoons.



I honestly meant this to be uploaded earlier this afternoon, but JUST as I was getting to the lettering part of the process my keyboard decided to, well, suck.

The rest of my day was spent trying to find something else to use as a temporary replacement (since it's an hour trip to ANY tech store), unsuccessfully, before finally tearing things apart and using the on-screen keyboard.

I was not amused.

Anyway, strip is up and still (mostly) on schedule!

Time to go release some of the stress, I think.
